£735.00Donated So Far
We are a not for profit dog and cat rescue station based in the south east of Bulgaria. To date we give shelter, feed, love, and see to all veterinary needs e.g. broken legs, open wounds, maggot infestations etc. etc. that we get when we rescue them.
We are a British couple that have done this almost exclusively from our old age pensions, and it is financially crippling us. The rescue centre has totally taken over our lives, and even though this year I have suffered a heart attack, and later thrombosis to my heart, we accept that all this has been our choice.
All we ask for from like minded people (folk that care for animals) is that you donate just a little to help us continue, and move forward with our rescue centre. It is desperately needed.
The maintenance on our property, which has four separate gardens, each with outbuildings within, are constantly having to be repaired, and where neccessary replaced. Not least the fencing that stops them getting out of the property. There are ongoing veterinary costs like parasite treatment, and treating injuries, and of course the regular vaccines that animals need. The list is endless.
I have added a selection of photos of some of our rescued cats and dogs, including some of the injuries, please be assured that all our rescues are now fully recovered and thriving.
If you feel you are able to help us just a little, then we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Lucky when we rescued her from town with a broken leg, and as she is today.

The last appeal was excellent, and from the donations we were able to neuter 7 of the rescues, 6 dogs and a bitch (I hate using that word, especially about someone as special as Brownie).I am uploading photos of Brownie, Chico, Maxi, Chan, Jack, Boycee, and last but not least,. . . . .
Operations carried out with donations ReceivedUpdate posted by Philip Stephen Evans at 10:39 am
Thanks ever so much to the ones who donated as a result of the last appeal, it is greatly appreciated. With some of the donations we managed to castrate 3 dogs. Why is this so important? Because if we do not castrate or spay our dogs, then we become a. . . . .
The heartbreaking/heartwarming story of Titch.Update posted by Philip Stephen Evans at 12:00 pm
Back in June 2014, this delightful little puppy that one of our neighbours had acquired, started coming to our gate when he realised we would always feed him. He was just 8 weeks old at the time, and we named him Titch. So began our relationship with this dog, who. . . . .
