We were asked if we could help find Moira a home as we are her only chance of a life outside this small 2 metre square cage in the Public shelter in Bistrita. For those who have never stepped into the Public shelter, consider yourself lucky. It leaves a lasting impression on your soul. The deafening cries and endless barking of the 200 plus dogs, all desperate for you to see them. Through tears you try so hard to give each dog a little piece of you. The unbearable stench and those sad eyes that bear deep into your soul. The PS is hell on earth.

Moira is very friendly towards people, wags her tail and would love nothing more than to have people visit her more often, but unfortunately with 200 plus dogs in the shelter this isn’t possible. She stands waiting and watching for that special someone to see her. Each day that goes past a small bit of her soul dies. We suspect Moira was kept on a chain, and her owner decided one day to get rid of her. When she arrived at the PS she was wearing a massive collar with an even larger Carabiner. She would dearly love to play with her kennel neighbour but unfortunately, even that is not possible here. In her dreary daily routine. this cage is her prison.

Moira has a shortened tail, the vet and the x-ray indicate that it is shortened due to an accident. We suspect Moira has had to spend her life outside so far and is therefore not yet familiar with life inside a household. She has not been cat tested but she is OK with other dogs, she just ignores them.

Thank you for your interest in Moira. If you would like to apply to adopt one of our dogs, please read the ‘How do I Adopt’ pages, where you can find more information about the process and the costs involved.

As you can imagine, each one of our dogs is very precious to us, they haven’t had the best start in life and therefore it is absolutely crucial we find the right homes for them.  When you complete a registration form, please tell us as much as you can about why you are looking to adopt a dog and how you think you can meet their needs.  Every dog is an individual and our amazing rehoming team will know exactly what type of home each dog needs to thrive.  For example, will the dog cope with a small garden or is it the type of dog who needs to live in a rural environment?  Will the dog enjoy being around children, or is it best suited to an adult only home?  Will it cope sharing a home with other pets, or is it best as an only dog?  Are you outdoorsy types who like to go hiking, or would you prefer a dog who is happy to snuggle up on the sofa with you?  Our rehoming team will be very familiar with the needs of each of our dogs and the information you provide on your application form will help them to match you with the right dog.
