We’re Barking Mad Dog Rescue. We’re a UK registered charity (1160985) working to improve the lives of abandoned dogs in Romania. 

We have a hands-on team in Romania at our shelters in Constanta , where we care for around 400 dogs and puppies, many of whom have been rescued from unimaginable abuse and neglect.

We also provide food to another shelter with over 100 dogs elsewhere in Romania.

In total, we feed around 500 dogs every single day.

We aim to rehome as many of the saved dogs as we can.

In the UK, we have a team of volunteer adoption specialists working with potential adopters and foster carers across the country. Although we aim to rehome as many of the saved dogs as we can, some unfortunately will never be suitable to make that journey. These dogs are available for sponsor here.

If you think you can offer a home to one of our dogs please read the information here, or if you’re interested in fundraising or getting involved with Barking Mad Dog Rescue in any way at all, then contact us.



Four little brothers found safety with a fellow rescuer from an army base elsewhere in Romania in 2022.  Last year, we started to take these and other young dogs from the same place into our care. This was to give them a better chance for finding homes. 

Winston is one of two of the brothers left who are still waiting for their happy ending.  We can't understand why. He was always the friendliest of the quartet. He is a little more shy now with strangers to start, but soon comes round. Winston is about 38cms to the shoulder  - small cocker size but a bit longer. He and his brother Gismo are both hoping they will be chosen soon.
