Story

Dogs in Craiova face a horrible fate, unless they are rescued by Friends for Life, a tiny team of tenacious,  but  exhausted people  who  take  as  many  as  they  can  into  their shelter. Conditions  are  pitiful,  with  a  concrete floor and chipboard kennels.  Water has to be brought by car each day. In the evening, they go out and feed the dogs still on the street. They do all this on top of their day jobs. Every penny they receive goes to food, veterinary fees and other essentials. They also work with a local charity neutering service. The dogs are rehomed across Europe. When they find a home for one of the lucky dogs, it comes by dog transport service  (the  "Happy  Bus") to the new owner, or sometimes to a UK rescue, where it will have a better chance of finding a home.

The cost of the transport for our two small dogs is £285, and 100 euros for their passports (which includes all the inoculations you would expect a dog to have in the UK, as well as rabies). The rest of the money has already been paid to Friends For Life for food and emergency vaccinations, as there has been a recent outbreak of distemper at the public kill shelter.

The picture shown is of Riff and Syrah, the two dogs we're bringing over to the UK for rehoming from the wonderful Holbrook Animal Rescue, near Horsham, West Sussex.

    "Our" dogs, Riff and Syrah (together at the bottom of the photo) are pictured here safe and well at the transporter's shelter in Deva, Romania. The transporter has had dreadful problems with buses breaking down, hence the delay in the dogs arriving in the UK. As soon as they are actually on the bus, on the way to Holbrook Animal Rescue, I will post here and update you.

    The Happy Bus broke down. Then the replacement bus broke down. But are we downhearted? No! We'll keep on keeping on until our two dogs are safely at Holbrook Rescue in Horsham, West Sussex. Safe at kennels in Romania, Riff and Syrah are now expected to leave on 24th July, to arive at Holbrook two days later. I've sold a few more books, so our total is now down to £877, and we only need another £75. I know I've said this before, but I can't wait to post the pictures of the dogs on the bus, leaving Romania forever... Thank you again, Louisa
