Who are we?

We named this site The Forgotten Shelter because it belongs to no one. Mrs Daniela Rusen took this shelter from the city hall because it was always empty, as the spacing did not meet the requirements for authorization. It has 48 kennels.

In this shelter we have our room with cats, a room with no ventilation. Some cats only got out of that room for one day in their life, when they got spayed. Puppies are abandoned all the time because it is on a heavy traffic road. Now there are 80 adults and the puppies die on a daily basis because the lack of immunization.

So far we only got food from a local association "Cainele meu Moreni", 20kg/day which is very little so our dogs had to settle only with something to eat. The number of abandoned puppies is growing and we need help. Immunization is highly required and also medicine. Please donate, share, adopt!

How we can make a difference

Our main aim is to rehome dogs outside Romania, as conditions in romanian shelters are dubbed "the hell holes".

How do we help dogs

Why pay for a foster?

Since we don’t have a quarantine area where we can get new dogs separated, there is a very high risk that they will contact viruses. During immunization, it is bets that dogs are separated, preferably in foster care which is very hard to find here in Romania, even when paid. If we do have this possibility, we place them in foster care during this whole period of time.

What happens next?

Should the costs of foster and vaccines be covered by donations or adopters, we can now focus on gaining exposure and promoting the dog to find their forever home.


When adopting

When a possible adopter shows interest, he is contacted by the associations we collaborate with to see if he is viable. Should he/she be fit to adopt, costs will be covered according to bills.

How do we help cats

What's with the cats in a dog shelter?

They obviously don't belong there. But since they were abandoned and at risk on the streets, we managed to get a room for them inside our shelter. Unfortunately, this room hasn't got any window protection so opening it would lead cats getting outside and exposed to dogs. Since we couldn't afford any changes so far, cats were left in here in an breathable air, some cats getting out of there for only one day in their life, when they got spayed/neutered.

So far....

In the autumn of 2016, more than 25 cats were crammed in this tiny room. We managed to rehome more than 20 here in Romania, but it seems like the last ones are the most difficult to be rehomed and of course whenever we manage to get one out, another one appears. And it's not even breeding season yet.

Help us spay/neuter cats in Moreni

As you may know, the biggest favour we can do for a cat is to spay or neuter it. Since it's easier to keep a cat around one's place, our fellow citizens claim to love cats more than dogs but wouldn't invest or don't understand the importance of this process. Most of them couldn't even afford such a surgery considering that most of them are old people. Luckily, our local veterinary managed to spay/neuter more than 400 cats based on donations but her lists never seem to end. Help us make a difference for cats as well, as we have plenty of requests from animal lovers who don not have that opportunity.

How you can make a difference

If you can, adopt! If you can’t adopt donate, if you can’t donate, pass the word! Any help is welcome! You can help us by donating or by sharing our page to gain exposure and raise adoption chances.

First of all, we animals are souls, not merchandise!

Discourage comercialization of pets, it`s wrong!

So instead of spending a fortune in adopting one of the "fine-races" from the mall, just help a needy soul from our forgotten shelter, and give it a home!
