About this appeal

We’re working closely with a dog shelter in Romania to bring a number of dogs to Wiccaweys to find their forever homes.

Many of these dogs have been saved from appalling conditions – either living on the streets or within the cruel confines of a kill shelter. While they may not have had the best start in life, we’re committed to giving them a happy ever after and to place them all in loving forever homes here in the UK.

Transporting these dogs safely to us comes at a cost that we as a rescue just cannot cover without your generosity and kindness so THANK YOU!

Donate to this appeal

Although this appeal has ended, we would of course love to offer more dogs in need the chance of a forever home. As a result, any additional donations beyond our target that we receive will be put towards bringing other dogs over, so if you would still like to donate to this appeal, you can do so via the link below:

Adam

Male

Adam is an old boy who was often spotted around the town with a cord around his neck. His rescuer had often tried to capture him but he evaded her and kept walking and walking. He was eventually caught by the dog catchers and taken to a kill shelter. His rescuer was there by chance getting other dogs out and he was screaming for her attention. She couldn’t leave him.

We would love to give this old boy a chance at a happy ending. Can you help us?

Balalau

Male, 1.5 years old approx.

Balalau is a young but big boy who was rescued from the side of a very busy road in Romania. He was was underweight and starving. He is very good with other dogs and loves humans but will need to gain your trust before he gives you the most amazing cuddles.

We know Balalau will make the perfect companion so please donate to support his journey to finding a forever home.

Lassie

Female, 1 year old approx.

Lassie is just a puppy who was born on the streets and found wandering after some gypsy folk. She wasn’t their dog although the children would play with her and call her Lassie. She is a very happy girl who is full of joy and affection.

She bonds very quickly with people and deserves a happy loving home to call her own.

Zyana

Female, 8 years’ old approx.

This pretty girl has lived all her life on the streets in Romania. Although she was well known and loved, she was very skinny when she was found, and the street, especially during harsh winters, is no life for a dog. Zyana loves humans and gets on well with other dogs.

Can you help bring her to Wiccaweys where a nice warm bed is waiting for her?

Hope

Female, 4/5 years’ old approx.

Hope is a very timid girl rescued from a public pound in Romania where was she found pregnant. She was moved to a private shelter however this turned out to be a very bad place where the owner kept the dogs in appalling conditions, and sadly all of Hope’s 8 pups died in the shelter. Thankfully, Hope was saved and is now healthy, spayed, and ready to find her new home. She is a friendly girl who loves human company. 

Help us bring this gorgeous lady to Wiccaweys where she can have a ‘hopeful’ future and find a forever home.

Bobbi

Female, 5 years’ old approx.

Bobbi was with Hope throughout the ordeal in the shelter. She was found in a skeletal condition but absolutely loves her food and has now reached a healthy weight. Although Bobbi is a little shy at first, she is a friendly affectionate girl who soon comes out for cuddles. She is currently on medication for Heart Worm (not contagious) and then she should be all clear. She is spayed and fully vaccinated. 

Can you help bring this special girl to us here at Wiccaweys?

Raven

Female, 3-4 years’ old.

Raven was also saved from terrible conditions in a Romanian shelter. She had demodex and was skeletal but is now on the road to recovery. She is shy but allows her carers to stroke her and particularly likes her chest tickled. She is quiet, reserved, and fine with other dogs, moving away rather than have any confrontation. She isn’t spayed. 

Her life so far has been dreadful, but that is about to change 💜

Merlin

Male, 5-6 years’ old approx.

This sweet boy was rescued from the public pound and sent to a foster near Bucharest, along with a number of other dogs. He is
neutered and fully vaccinated.

Merlin has not had the best start in life but we’re hopeful that we can turn this around find magical Merlin a loving forever home.

Jasper

Male, 2-3 years’ old.

Jasper and Jerry are litter mates, rescued from a private shelter in a raid where 54 dogs were rescued. All were starving and in terrible condition; none were vaccinated or registered.
They were taken to a foster home where they were coming on well, playing and taking treats, however when the carers contracted COVID-19, Jasper and Jerry were moved to a large shelter environment which they found quite scary. They seem to be afraid of men and tend to avoid and hide more but they do not show any aggression and are good-natured boys.

Jerry

Male, 2-3 years’ old.

Jerry was rescued along with Jasper and the two are litter mates. 

Can you find it in your heart to help us bring these sweet boys to Wiccaweys?

Dusha

Dusha is female, 8 years old approx. 

This pair were not found together but have developed a friendship.

Dusha was thrown out of her home after she had given birth and was starving and skinny when she was found. She is a lovely, funny girl who loves humans and other dogs. Will you donate to help her find a happy home?

Nikos

Nikos is male, 10+ years old approx.

This pair were not found together but have developed a friendship.

Nikos is an older boy who was found abandoned in a tourist village where there was nothing he could scrounge to eat. He was freezing cold and starving and his rescuer went to collect him even though he was a long way away. He is a very sweet old boy and jumps when he is happy. His chance of a happy retirement home in within reach – will you donate to make this a reality?
