Sava's Safe Haven
Sava's Safe Haven was founded in 2012 by animal lover Oana Sava, who was determined to end the suffering of stray animals from the streets of Romania. Based in Galati, in the south-east region of the country, this family-run registered charity has built its own shelter where they care for over 230 dogs, as well as numerous cats and birds.
In the two years since its initial construction, the shelter has undergone many improvements, including the addition of several paddocks, a number of isolation rooms, a quarantine room and a veterinary clinic. Electricity is provided by solar panels and fresh, clean water is available for the animals via the new water-well.
Sava's Safe Haven has rehomed over 200 dogs so far, mostly to the UK, Germany and Sweden. All their dogs are vaccinated, neutered, dewormed and microchipped before they travel.
However, the charity is always looking to improve its facilities and standard of living for the dogs in its care, but can only continue its vital work with the help of their supporters and friends from abroad. As their motto states, 'With love and care, rescued dogs can wag their tail again. This is our work, to change their lives.'
