Back to Romania with the K-9 Angels team

                         I Intended to take just one, but in reality, our hearts rule our heads!

The K-9 Angels have campaigned on behalf of animals the World over, and their work in Romania has resulted in many dogs finding loving homes in the UK and beyond. They continue to be a voice for the suffering strays in Romania, and this latest campaign resulted in many dogs being saved. It was an honour to be invited to join them, as film cameraman/photographer.

A fantastic effort by all involved, as the K-9 Angels save more lives, from the hell that is a public shelter in Romania..

Joined once again by singer Whinnie Williams,
Dog Rescuer Nanu Madalina, and the K-9 ladies Victoria Eisermann, Pola Pospiezalska, Rebecca Smith, Suzanne Williams, Loaca Aurelia, and their wonderful sponsor (who wishes to remain anonymous), the trip began by taking as many dogs as we could, out of Breasta Public Shelter, Craiova..
The dogs never wag their tails, they sit in urine soaked kennels without food, and are beaten and abused. Many have distemper and are infested with ticks and other afflictions. Even when we arrive, the eyes of the dogs tells their own story..
A life of misery, torture and death..
As we take them from hell, they never wag their tails, as they are bewildered and afraid, having never known a human's love...

The dogs were all taken to the veterinary centre, for treatments, surgery, and cuddles. Some have distemper, and others are so skinny and weak, that they can barely stand..
Once treatment is initiated, and the vets perform the spays (they are excellent surgeons, performing fast surgery), the dogs will be taken to the K-9 Angels shelter...
This shelter is the polar opposite of the public hellhole...Flowers adorn the grassy areas, the kennels are bright and spacious and clean. The dogs are fed good food, and Loaca Aurelia and her team show the dogs love for the first time in their lives...
The dogs will reside here, until new loving homes can be found...
The girls have already built a shelter building, which is a heaven for the animals...Lovely and warm, it truly is a place of joy...They are planning to build even more! However, donations are desperately needed to continue this vital work, so please visit www.k-9angels.org and donate, to give these animals a better life..Thank you all....Gary Edwards.


May I personally thank the girls, for inviting me on this latest trip as their film cameraman and photographer.
Thank you Pola, Victoria, Rebecca, and Suzanne! It's an honour to work with like-minded people...


Special thanks to our supporters, includin
g our dear friends Peter Egan, Andrea Gamby Boulger, Saffron Republica, Samantha Fox, Fia Tarrant, Richie Kul, and so many others...We love you all...
Poor 'Sally'...Sat in the hellhole shelter, with no hope. Her sad eyes gazing out in despair. She was so frail and weak. Her ribs protruding, her spine showing, her head sunken...a bag of bones...She could barely stand...But worst of all, she had given up...
Her sad, lifeless eyes told her tale...Left to rot in a stinking urine soaked kennel, with no chance of escape. She was waiting to die...But today was her lucky day!
She was taken away from Breasta public shelter, to receive treatment and most of all love. Victoria placed a collar around her frail neck, and as poor Sally sat bewildered and scared, she weakly wagged her tale....
We wept for this girl, but we hope that she will pull through. She will be taken to the K-9 Angels shelter, which is a safe haven, where she will come to learn that human's can show kindness, instead of the beatings she has received in her sad life...This is the reality for so many dogs that languish in Romanian public shelters. They are afforded no love, no care, barely any food (if any at all), and are cruelly treated, considered nothing more than vermin...Help us to save even more dogs like 'Sally'. Please support our work, and thank you from our hearts.
