Save the Dogs and other Animals was born to give an answer to the plight of stray dogs in Romania.
From the legal point of view, the association – founded by the former ad-woman Sara Turetta – consists of two branches: the operating arm in Romania founded in, and the parent Italian association (founded in 2005 to finance the activities ). The two bodies, albeit formally separate, as a matter of fact constitute a single organization, sharing both strategy and values.
Save the Dogs and other Animals’ main purpose is to fight the stray dogs phenomenon through an integrated approach, to assist owned animals in rural areas and to rescue abused and abandoned dogs, cats, horses and donkeys in Constanţa county.
The organization has a widespread network of partners through Europe.
