Martha & May in UK

Incredible News!



Thanks to amazing work of individuals a foster for them was found and thanks to great common effort the needed funds were raised for their travel.

10 January 2019




Those 5 pups were born on 12 April 2017. We took care of them since that date. Together with volunteers we created a small nest for them and their mom Malyshka - a stray dog from Kranevo, Bulgaria.

In about 4 weeks, when pups started to walk, we placed them to a foster in Kranevo. Then they were transferred to a dog hotel. Fortunately, Mrs. Karen Saywer from UK proposed them a foster in UK and she covered transport costs as well as hotel costs, until all pups were ready to travel. All puppies were vaccinated and microchiped.

This week we received a message from Mrs. Karen  Saywer, that all of the puppies were adopted in the UK! A big thank you to all who helped rescue, foster and adopt the  puppies: Luna, Oscar, Lilly,Hope and Tully.




But their parents Malyshka and Fedor are still waiting to be adopted.

Lucky's lucky story

Lucky had an incredible rescue story. When we saw him for the first time we found out that Lucky was abandoned by its owner. The people who were temporarily keeping him gave him away to a person who than completely neglected him. We have decided to rescue the poor dog.When we arrived at the place Lucky was attached to a short chain with no water or food and an old dusty rug for a bed. He was incredibly happy to see us! We have rescued him and placed into a kennel and started looking for a home for him. Lucky didn't have to wait too long before he was adopted! Lucky got truly lucky!
