What a Busy Month. BMDR is overrun with new puppies.

They say when it rains it pours. This certainly seemed to be the case for us this last months when it has been raining puppies.


Our own shelters, and those we support are full to the brim. But this hasn't stopped us saving so many more dogs and puppies over the last few weeks.

Our Romanian core team in Constanta have been inundated with urgent pleas to take in abandoned and injured dogs. We have taken in around 35 new dogs recently.

In Dorohoi, in northern Romania, Claudia and Cosmin too, have also spotted and saved several dogs in desperate need of help. This couple's rescued dogs are supported Barking Mad Dog Rescue, with vet bills and money for the dogs' care. Through the hard work of our German colleagues and our UK team, many of their dogs are rehomed in Germany, Austria and here in Britain.


Despite our resources being stretched to the absolute limit for many months now, we won't turn away pups or dogs in desperate need of help.


Let's take a look at just some of our rescue efforts over the last few weeks...


Eight Abandoned Pups


People in the village contacted us about a mum and her eight puppies, abandoned in a derelict house.


These kind neighbours helped gather them all together. We left them there, safe where they are, as there is parvo in our shelter. They are fed and checked daily and are not near any roads. People are keeping a watchful eye on them. Two have already been offered local homes.


And Another Eight Puppies...


Oana took a detour one night to get home a little quicker, when she spotted a puppy wandering in some wasteground. It was pouring rain.

Then gradually she found more...and more. They were huddled together in the pouring rain.

Of course Oana couldn't leave them, so she bundled all into the warmth of her car and turned straight back round to the village house shelter, where they were fed and made comfy for the night.
