Hi and thanks for joining us, here is a little bit about us and why we set up this rescue and then below is a little bit more about the rescue and how we work.
The majority of these dogs have come from the UK but in 2012 I was made aware of the plight of Romanian dogs and it saddened me so much I felt I needed to help out in whatever way I could. So I agreed to take in 4 little rommies and find them homes in the uk. Oddly I only rehomed 1 to a very good friend of mine, because we fell in love with the other 3 and they became part of the family.
Since then there has been a steady drip of little souls appearing on facebook with their romanian carers asking for help in finding them homes abroad.
Last year the law changed in Romania and suddenly all stray dogs were being rounded up and killed, sadly often without the humane methods used in this country, some were literally being beaten to death by dog catchers and public shelter owners.
We were rehoming some dogs through another rescue but as we got more and more involved and agreed to take on more dogs it made sense to start up our own rescue. And so Happily Ever After Dog Rescue was born.
We are very lucky to have a small but strong team of volunteers behind us that work tirelessly, fundraising and keeping all the behind the scenes stuff up together.
We do also take in UK dogs of course but only ones that are previously assessed as we don’t have or use kennels and all dogs are fostered in homes along side the fosterer’s dogs and or children.
We are based in and around Bristol.
We believe that a dog in need is a dog in need, no matter
where it comes from, Romania, Spain, England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Turkey, Bulgaria, Thailand, so you get the picture, if we can help a dog we will.
