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 and Calarasi, where we care for around 500 dogs and puppies, many of whom have been rescued from unimaginable abuse and neglect.

We also provide food, vet care and support to two other shelters in Romania.

In total, we feed more than 800 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.

Lina is one of the dogs who has been with us the longest. Dear Lina has moved around so much but still has her sweet nature. Once she gets over her initial shyness, Lina is a loving dog. She has been great with all her carers. Once she was saved as a youngster with her smashed jaw, we had to move her from shelter to shelter wherever we could find a safe place. She had been let down and conditions were not good enough, until, at last, we were able to bring her to our own place. Lina needs and deserves more than this. Lina is also our cover girl on the home page.
