DogRescue is one of Sweden's largest aid organizations for street dogs abroad. We are in Sweden but also have our own dog fence and veterinary clinic abroad where we are active. DogRescue is a non-profit organization that works with non-profit forces to save lives and make a difference - for real! Every year we help dogs from the harsh world of the street and rescue them from so-called "death lists" in anticipation of death.
We are operating completely non-profit
The association is run entirely non-profit, which means that no wages are picked out more than to employed dog caretakers and veterinarians - every penny goes to the cause. Because the association only receives donations from individuals and companies - your gift is incredibly important to us. You can choose to support us in many different ways. Either through a pure donation via swish or bank transfer, by becoming support member, by purchasing one of ours Gåvogram, by becoming corporate sponsor or by purchasing products such as dog food or dog toys in the spring online store that you still need and otherwise would have bought from someone else.
Private dog fence
DogRescue owns and operates its own private dog fence "Butimanu" which is of a high standard and is one of the few with a smaller veterinary clinic where hundreds of dogs together with the staff are like a single large family. Our private fence also meets all the requirements that exist and is authorized and approved by the authorities - a status that many other private dog fences never manage to achieve. We also have the only fence we know of, our own dog pool and activation park where the dogs take turns playing, training and socializing. We have built our fence from the ground up, from raw land to what it is today to be independent of others and to have full transparency and control over the entire business.
Own veterinary clinic
DogRescue operates and owns a private veterinary clinic in Bucharest with modern equipment where both our own dogs and private clients with animals receive care. The clinic has many veterinary staff who perform analyzes, orthopedics, surgery and cosmetic surgery for both dogs and cats. The clinic has a good reputation and the founder who we bought the clinic from and who we still work with is named one of Europe's best specialist veterinarians in neurosurgery on animals.
Castration, emergency response and education campaigns
Every year we make urgent efforts to save the lives of injured dogs and we disseminate information to villagers and through schools. We believe that education and attitude change go hand in hand with changing conditions for animals, in countries where you do not respect animals in the same way we do at home in Sweden. We also help with various castration campaigns carried out in different cities and we organize our own campaigns in our fence where we open the gates for free castration to the poor people in the villages around our area. Those who cannot reach us, we go and collect so that the animals receive the necessary care and neutering.
How we work
1. Rescue actions on the street and from other dog fences.
We take care of injured dogs or animals that people report on - to buy out dogs that are to be killed or roughly groomed in other dog fences.
2. Educational campaigns for children in school.
It is the children who are the future and who can educate their parents to change the attitude of street dogs in the long term. An example of this is the children's book "The chip from Tippen" which is distributed at Romanian schools and sold in Sweden for the benefit of the association where the authors chose to donate 25% of the profits to DogRescue.
3. We own and operate our own private dog fence.
Our shelter is of a high standard and is one of the few with a smaller veterinary clinic where hundreds of dogs together with our staff are like a single large family. DogRescue's fence meets all requirements and is authorized and approved by the authorities - a status that other private dog fences can never achieve. We also have our own dog pool where dogs can cool off in the summer and be rehabilitated after injuries. In our Activation Park the dogs take turns playing, training and socializing.
4. Adoption activities.
We have an adoption business that meets more than Swedish law says to bring in dogs from abroad. Each dog is carefully tested for diseases several times a year, vaccinated, chip-marked, fed and socialized before our travelers take them to Sweden by air. Our adoption activities are also more restrictive than others. Anyone must not become an adopter because the dogs themselves already have trauma with them and need time and love to heal and get used to a new life in safety. As a result, our on-call business is minimal and we also follow up on anyone who has adopted a dog - and takes responsibility for the dog - life.
5. Own veterinary clinic.
No matter how much you want to help, medicine and expertise in the field are not possible. Therefore, in addition to our mini clinic in the fence, we also own a large private veterinary clinic with several veterinarians employed.
6. We are engaged in opinion formation.
We influence local politicians in the country we operate with the power to change on a larger scale.
