Sponsors needed to keep Romanian dogs safe

Sponsors needed

I am from Care and Compassion for Bals Shelter Dogs and due to recent ban on dogs coming into the UK from overseas, we urgently need sponsors for our dogs.

These dogs are all healthy, and are caught, trapped and put in cold dark shelters with little food – they are terrified, alone, and then they are destroyed after two weeks. We provide a sponsorship scheme whereby the dogs are taken out of the Bals kill shelter and placed in safe foster home, vaccinated and looked after until they can come to the UK to the loving homes which await them.

This only costs sponsors a few pounds each month. We get no government grants or funding or any other help.

It does not cost much, and it will keep a dog safe in a foster home until they are allowed to join their new family

We always need sponsors, but we need them more than ever now, as the ban put in place by Defra is creating a backlog. People can go to the Facebook group Care and Compassion for Bals Shelter Dogs if they would like to sponsor a dog. Its only a few pound each month, and the sponsorship ends when the dog gets to the UK to their forever home. People can then decide to sponsor another dog if they wish.

You can share sponsorship with other people in the group as well, and you also get to name your sponsored dog. Seeing the dogs leave for the UK on the happy bus makes it all worthwhile. On our Facebook group, you can see the photos and read all about the dogs, and you can choose who to sponsor. It does not cost much, and it will keep a dog safe in a foster home until they are allowed to join their new family.
