Company of Animals to the rescue
3rd October 2019

By Karen Pickwick

A team of volunteers from Company of Animals has travelled to Romania to work with a local charity helping abandoned dogs.

The charity, A Better Life Dog Rescue, is on a mission to save as many dogs lives as it can in Romania. As part of the initiative, the charity and volunteers are renovating their half-way house shelters where the dogs can acclimatise to life off the streets and help them adjust and prepare for their journey to their new forever homes in the UK.

In the renovated shelters, the dogs and puppies are given the care they need to recover from living on the streets or being in public shelters. They are treated for any diseases and ailments they may have picked up and have the opportunity to spend time in a safe environment getting regular meals, warmth and human interaction.

DOG TRAINING

Company of Animals founder Dr Roger Mugford said: “We’re so pleased we were able to support this charity in Romania. The aim of our trip was to help improve how these animals are treated and looked after, by helping educate the local communities about dog training and how to care for them as part of their families or in the public shelters there.

“Our team has taken direct action to learn about the welfare problems in Romania and it’s great to be able to support other charitable agencies as part of our Company of Animals Foundation.”

The team was able to use many of the COA products first-hand to help with this mission.
