Celebrating Compassion: Honoring Alexandra Sava of Sava's Safe Haven

In the heart of Romania, a country graced with natural beauty yet challenged by socio-economic issues, lies a sanctuary that stands as a testament to compassion and resilience. Sava's Safe Haven, a family-run animal shelter in Galați, is a beacon of hope for the voiceless and the vulnerable. At the helm of this noble cause is Alexandra Sava, a woman whose life narrative is interwoven with the threads of altruism and advocacy for animal welfare.

The genesis of Sava's Safe Haven can be traced back to Alexandra's childhood, where her innate love for animals was nurtured within a family that regularly cared for street animals.

Sava's Safe Haven is more than just a shelter; it's a movement. With only four volunteers and no employees, the organization has successfully rehomed over 1500 animals across Europe. Their efforts extend beyond the borders of their shelter, offering free medical care to animals in need, which is crucial in a low-income area like Galați.

The impact of Sava's Safe Haven extends beyond the confines of its walls. It spearheads educational programs aimed at fostering a culture of animal welfare and respect for life. Through these programs, Alexandra and her team have enlightened over 1300 children, planting the seeds for a more humane future.

Alexandra's dedication to animal welfare has not gone unnoticed. She has been featured in the spotlight by international organizations, recognizing her as a woman who is changing attitudes and behaviors towards animals, one person at a time. Her work, especially in rural communities, is pivotal in shifting perceptions and establishing that animal welfare is integral to community wellness.

In times of crisis, Alexandra's heroism shines even brighter. Amidst the turmoil of the Ukrainian conflict, she has extended her hand to refugees at the border, providing them with pet food, blankets, crates, leashes, and other supplies. Her actions embody the spirit of mutual aid and the profound connection between human and animal welfare.

Running Sava's Safe Haven for over a decade has not been an easy feat. Yet, Alexandra remains grateful for the opportunity to work alongside her family, sharing a collective love for what they do. Her story is one of passion, perseverance, and the power of community. It serves as an inspiration to us all, reminding us that change starts with a single act of kindness.

On this special day, Alexandra's birthday wish is simple yet profound: to garner support for the animals under her care. Instead of gifts, she asks for donations to help worldwide animals.
