  • Description


    Over 10 years ago, Florin rescued a dog from the streets and named him Ringo. The dog was hit by a car and was not able to walk. Although in a very bad shape, Ringo was strong enough and he recovered completely. For Florin, that was only the start of his journey in animal welfare.

    He started saving abandoned dogs in the comfort of his own home, but he always worked towards being able to have more space for the dogs. That is why Florin looked for the opportunity to develop a private shelter. He first started his authorized pet transport company and, using what profit he made from there, he started investing in a place where dogs could live 24/7. This happened in 2017, when the foster first opened. Today, this is the place where many, many dogs call home. Some of them are sponsored by friends abroad, from Romania or by Florin himself.

    After years of work, we saved over 300 pets from private shelters and from the streets, with the help of his friends. Thanks to their donations, now our shelter can provide very good conditions for all dogs that are in our care. And we always work to improve the conditions for the dogs. It’s not easy, because sometimes we struggle for food and other expenses, but being able to make the lives of so many abandoned pets better, makes it worthwhile!

    The foster is located in close proximity of Bacau County, a small but very beautiful town, with friendly people and interesting places to visit.
