The Charity Bid to Save a Stray was founded in 2014 following 2 years of supporting our Romanian Rescuer Cristina Paun through financial support and contractual adoptions in the UK. In 2014 we had 180 dogs in our shelter.
Since 2014 our work in Romania has increased dramatically, we have 1700 dogs now in our care in our 3 locations known as Wonderland…
Funded by our UK & German supporters we purchased a piece of land next door to our existing rented shelter land. The build was financed by a German benefactor. The Shelter now houses around 500 dogs, the shelter is made up of indoor rooms with outdoor runs and each compound houses between 4- 6 dogs all tested for compatibility.
Caring for over 1,800 animals day to day comes at a significant cost. Food alone costs us several thousands of euros every month, add to that other essentials such as electricity and staff wages, our running costs are in excess of 20,000 euros every month. Anything you can spare would be greatly appreciated.
