Collaboration with an International Association

In November we were visited by volunteers of an International Charity that rehome dogs from Romania to countries as Belgium, France and Switzerland. They were surprised about our shelter and our conditions, so in 2019 we started collaboration with Association WOF.

Read their impression about our shelter on their Facebook Page ( Association WOF).

We was very lucky and grateful to their support, in January 12 dogs from our shelter left to their new lifes thanks to this organisation.

Pictures of our dogs in their homes are just fabulous!

Check all pictures on our social pages! 

Thank you very much!!

Christmas as a story, even for shelter dogs..

Christmas as a story, is our project launched 6 years ago when we decide to make the difference for shelter animals and giving them a real Christmas, even they live in kennels.

Today, after 6 years, we continue to make the difference for shelter animals and offer them a loving Christmas,even they are in kennels, some of them by over 5 years!

We started this project long time ago to offer to the shelter animals a chance to be happy and to feel the joy of the holidays, even they spend their time in a kennel.

Sava's Safe Haven is one of the lucky shelters in which Santa Claus is coming every year!

Our team organised again the " Christmas as a story, even for shelter dogs" and all our dogs got a Christmas gift from Santa that includes biscuits, dental sticks, chew bones, warm clothes, toys for the young dogs and special food for older ones!

Everything thanks to worldwide supporters of the shelter.

The video is (P)awesome!!

Another year over, and a new one just begun..

  • Over 100 dogs rehomed in most lovely homes from UK, Germany and Sweden;
  • We created a new team in Sweden under " Andra Chansen Sava's Safe Haven - Sverige " ;
  • Spay and help over 100 community animals .
  • Improving the shelter's clinic.

New year resolution: It's about shelter dogs!

  • Improve the living condition in shelter for long-time residents in shelter, including the one living in shelter by over throught improving the kennels and create a natural playgroung of 1200 meters in front of the shelter.
  • Invest in community project of education and spay/neutering.
  • Increase the number of worldwide volunteers and increase the number of rehomed animals.

Join us in 2019

Our charity is always looking to improve its facilities and standard of living for the dogs in our care, but we can only continue our vital work with the help of our supporters and friends from abroad.

As our motto state:

'With love and care, rescued dogs can wag their tail again. This is our work, to change their lives.'

Our refuge is run by a non-profit organization we are totally reliant upon private donations.
