Sponsorship programmes

Dogs

Many dogs that live in Save the Dogs' shelters are unlikely to ever have a home and a family of their own. This can be due to a number of reasons, such as an illness, disability, old age, shyness or other social difficulties. These dogs cause a lot of expense because even they need food and medical care. We want to help these dogs too, which is the reason for our sponsorship program.

You can support your chosen dog by paying a monthly fee, the minimum being 10€. With these fees we can offer the dogs a good life at the shelter. The fees will cover daily food and veterinary care, and also deworming.

The sponsorship program is based on the same principles as with organizations with child sponsorship programmes, the fees support the welfare of the entire shelter, your sponsordog is a representative for all these dogs.

As a sponsor you will receive pictures and information concerning your sponsor dog at least twice a year. If the dog dies, or anything else happens, you will be notified straight away.

You will find more information (in finnish) on the dogs looking for sponsors here and here (Sibiu). When you have chosen a dog you wish to sponsor, please contact Leena leena@koirienystavat.com for further information. Once your sponsorship has been confirmed, your name will appear on this website, under the dogs picture.

Cats

Cats have a sponsorship programme too. You can find more information here.

Horses

Friends of Homeless Dogs has an outreach project for the working horses around Cernavoda and Medgidia. The project aims at improving the welfare of the horses by providing medical assistance and education to the owners. The objective is to work in a preventive way amongst the owners in order to avoid, as far as possible, euthanasia or confiscation of the horse. With the funds from this project Save the Dogs can educate the owners and help the horses by giving for example deworming, caring for wounds or donating materials. Read more about our outreach project here. If you would like to sponsor the horses, please contant pia@koirienystavat.com for further information.

For the horses rescued to Save the Dogs' animal welfare center Footprints of Joy, we have sponsors who cover the expenses for these horses. We also arrange campaigns in order to improve their welfare, for example building new stables or support the therapy of a newly rescued horse.

Sterilization

Neuterings are one of the corner stones of our work and you can help us with this important task by becoming a sterilization sponsor. As a sterilization sponsor you pay for one sterilization each month and by doing so you are in a very concrete way helping to reduce the numer of animals on the streets in Cernavoda and Medgidia. More information here.

Shelter sponsor

Many dogs that live in the shelters are unlikely to ever have a home and a family of their own. This may be due to a number of reasons, such as an illness, disability, old age, shyness or other social difficulties. These dogs cause a lot of expense because even they need food and medical care. We want to help these dogs too, which is the reason for our shelter sponsorship programme. More information here and here (Sibiu).

Donkeys

Save the Dogs continues with its therapy donkey programme in Bradet in 2015. As a sponsor you donate 10 euros or more on a monthly basis. All donations are transferred directly and without dedutions to Save the Dogs, who is responsible for every day care of the donkeys. More information here.

All donations are transferred to the cause directly and without any deductions. Thank you for your help!
