About us

The Dog Rescue Romania project was started in 2012.

Dr. Rudi Hoffman and Dr. Garofita Hoffman saw and acted on the urgent need of selfless rescue in Romania.

As veterinarians and life long animal lovers they grabbed the opportunity to do something great with both hands.

The Dog Rescue Romania project was born out of love and respect for all the stray dogs on the streets in Romania.

With a minimum of official support and even less funds they managed to create a project worth great respect.

The admiration and support of animal lovers from all over Europe grew and so did Dog Rescue Romania.

To continue this great project they still need your support.

The Romanian government does not provide support.

The Dog Rescue Romania project consists out of several different services.

In the Dog Rescue shelter in Bucharest and Braila is space for 700 – 800 dogs.

Both shelters work exclusively with strays and provide food, shelter, medical care and social interaction for the dogs.

The Dog Rescue Clinic in Bucharest takes care of the most urgent cases of abuse, injury and other medical issues.

They perform bone surgery, plastic surgery, neutering, vaccination, medical examinations and snap-tests (4DX, leishmania)

hematology and urinal tests, echography, dental and socialization.

They also provide urgent medical intervention with their Turbo Pet ambulance for dogs no-one is able to bring to the clinic.

The office of the clinic is also responsable for the adoptions out of the shelter and clinic.

The Dog Rescue Sanctuary is a home offered by Dog rescue to a homeless family that now takes care of about 20 strays at the property.
