How You Can Help


We couldn't do what we do without the help of our supporters. It costs £180 to transport a dog to the UK but every little helps, so you can donate as little or as much as you like towards a dog's sponsorship. Many of our supporters fundraise together to raise money to sponsor a dog.  Once here, we work with UK rescue centres to assess the dogs and match them to suitable forever homes.

This video shows the conditions the dogs have to live in and why we are so passionate about helping as many as possible. 



Our work is not just about transporting dogs to the UK to be rehomed. We have several campaigns running at the moment that are linked to different aspects of our work in the shelters in Romania

International Dog Rescue is a not for profit organisation. This means we are dependant on the support of those who believe in what we do and want to improve the lives of the dogs in shelters.

We are always grateful for the support we receive but not everyone can afford to sponsor or make a personal donation. Fundraising means you can still help make a difference to the dogs needing help.

 If you have already successfully raised some vital funds and wish to now make a donation you can do this here.

We aim to find homes for as many of the dogs as possible. All our dogs are re homed through UK rescue centres.

On arrival all dogs are assessed to find out what sort of home they require before they are adopted.

Foster homes are always wanted for our dogs so that we can bring them to the UK more quickly instead of waiting for kennel space to become available. 

Some of our dogs also require a little extra care and attention before going to their forever homes so we look to place them in suitable foster homes.
