About Us…

We are a team of passionate volunteers who have seen some of the atrocities that face the street and stray dogs in Romania and who are determined to make a difference.

The Dogs in Romania…

have a hard and terrifying existence. They are frequently abandoned in remote places and left to starve to death. It’s not uncommon for a mum and her babies to be dumped in the forest where they all starve or die of untreated illnesses. People have been known to abandon their pet dogs just as they would abandon rubbish. The dogs that are abandoned on the streets if not maimed or killed in road traffic accidents are prime targets for the dog catchers who hunt them down and capture them in brutal ways, often injuring them in the process.

The dogs are then thrown into the Public shelter…

where they are left without any care or medical attention in squalid conditions and with little or no food. Life in the PS is hard, temperatures vary greatly, from deep snow in winter to a searing, hot 40 degrees in the summer. In the winter there is no heating and dogs die from the cold, often frozen to the ground they laid on for the night. There is no air in the summer, and dogs die from heatstroke and dehydration. Puppies, elderly dogs and sick dogs fare the worst in these conditions.

Few dogs in Romania will survive to adulthood…

Many of the stray dogs are not neutered and so it’s a constant round of young bitches in season with the inevitable consequence. They then go on to give birth to puppies, which in their turn go on to have more pups. It is a never ending cycle. Until a proper neutering campaign is put into place by the Romanian government this dire situation for the poor dogs of Romania will continue.

We at 1 Dog At A Time Rescue cannot stand by and do nothing, we have pledged to help wherever we can. We try to save as many lives as we can… but we need your help, without you so many more will die.
