Dogs taken into the kill shleters are put to sleep after a period of time, between 30 and 90 days, unless we reserve them. Due to Covid and pressure on UK rescue spaces our reserved dogs have not been able to travel and so have been reserved for much longer than usual. This has put pressure on the shelter and they have now said that any dogs reserved will cost £45 each per month. If we do not pay this, we must unreserve the dogs and then they are at risk of being put to sleep.
We need your help to pay for the care of these dogs. You can either fully sponsor a dog or pay towards its sponsorship. Use the form to tell us which dog, or dogs, you would like to sponsor and how much you can donate each month. We will tell you when they travel so you can then choose to either end you donations or swap to another dog.
Donations can be made via standing order straight to our bank.

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
Adopting a dog from International Dog Rescue
Our adoption process is very simple -
complete an application form
provide pictures of the boundary of your property
provide proof you can have a dog if you rent
decide which dog you are interested in
have a homecheck
Once accepted and you've passed our initial checks we will ask you to pay a reservation fee which is not able to be refunded if you change your mind, we do however deduct this off the adoption fee. We then rasie funds to transport the dog to the UK direct to you. Adult dogs are adopted on a Foster to adopt basis, puppies can be adopted straight away. You can find out more about Foster to adopt and puppy adoption using the link below.
The majority of our dogs travel to the UK to our partner rescues to be found homes. These dogs are assessed by the rescue to see what type of home they require and are more often than not are offered to people already on their waiting list. you can find out more using the link below.
