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 re-home 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.

Larch has had no luck and we just can't understand why. Every year someone close to Coca's shelter in Calarasi allows their labrador female to get pregnant and them dumps the pups with Coca. Three years in a row this has happened and every single pup from every litter has been adopted except for Larch. This is through no fault of his own. No one seems to have noticed him at all. 

Dear Larch looks mainly lab and his siblings have all proved to be fine dogs once settled in their adoptive homes. Larch would now need another dog in the home as he is so used to canine company.
