Barking Mad Dog Rescue was formed when Hilary Anderson and Alex Shipp, travelled to Romania in a bid to understand the stray and abandoned dog problem across the country. They said: “Nothing could have prepared the Barking Mad team for the impact of seeing so many beautiful, affectionate dogs, all desperate for attention, crammed into a small shelter. Many were thin, all were full of ticks and fleas.”
Since the initial visit, the charity now has teams which visit the country every two months. Since the charity was formed, over 1000 dogs have now found new homes in both the UK and Germany. The charity also feeds around 850 dogs every day across their network of partner shelters.
Scruffs has donated several pet bedding and accessory items to support the charity in their efforts and activities across Romania. Over the coming months, the charity will begin to stock selected Scruffs products on their online shop, further boosting fundraising efforts to ensure they can keep providing a service which makes a difference to the welfare of these animals.
A spokesperson for Barking Mad Dog Rescue, said: ”Barking Mad Dog Rescue works day in and day out to rescue, and provide sanctuary for, some of the most persecuted dogs in the world. Thanks to Scruffs, some of our little dogs and our oldies will have somewhere soft to lie down and rest.”
A spokesperson for Scruffs said: “We welcome the opportunity to support fundraising events, to help registered charities improve the welfare of pets less fortunate than our own. Barking Mad Dog Rescue provide a much-needed service for the dogs of Romania, and we will continue to offer our full support as they tackle this problem.”
