About Us
Seven Strays Dog Rescue started in May 2015, when a we rescued seven stray puppies and their mum from the side of the road in Calarasi, Romania. They were all so skinny, but so friendly, and we could not just leave them there with nothing but a cruel future ahead of them.

From this, Seven Strays was born

Sian - Trustee

Hi, I’m Jo. I’ve been in animal rescue for many years and all voluntary, I have many dogs, cats and other small animals. My house is a zoo, but I wouldn’t be without any of them. I volunteer in fundraising, to help make life a bit bearable for animals in need. I hold a certificate as I am a member of the IOF. (Institute of Fundraising). My 4 children have all grown up and have their own lives, so gives me the time to spend on saving dogs in need. My animals and family are my world.

I’m Sian, I’m a qualified pharmacy technician & work 4 days a week, I’m married with one son who’s nearly 13.
I have always been animal crazy and we currently stand at 1 staffy princess, Lola, Bailey our rescue bichon x JR, our elderly cat Greebo and the rampaging tortoise Swifty,
I happily helped Jo with fundraising for another group, until one day I fell in love with a tripod rommie she was trying to find a foster for & after that it all changed for me, we have fostered and seen to their new homes 4 rommies and on our 3rd foster we failed & Bailey stayed, I want to do whatever I can to help these doggies find a happy home & love nothing better than helping out on a raffle or auction.

This wonderful lady is Carmen Borka. She runs the group we help in Romania. called Angels4 Animals Rescue

We help rehome Carmen's dogs once they have been vaccinated, micro chipped, Vet checked and in foster

We are at the moment having a shelter built so all our dogs will be together. Once this is fully up and away pictures will follow.

Carmen Works very hard with our dogs, along with briniging up her 2 twin boys with her husband.




What we do
In Romania, the situation for dogs is dire. The population is out of control, and the authorities do not seem to care. The money they receive to help the situation does not go to the dogs, but instead lines their pockets. So it’s up to us to do something about it.

Our aim is to rescue dogs from Romania, either from the streets or from the public shelter, and find them homes in the UK, as well as support spay and neuter campaigns to reduce the population and ultimately tackle the root of the problem.

The process of adoption is really quite simple.
Fill out the form to apply to adopt, and then we’ll give you a call. We’ll then arrange a home check, to make sure your house and garden is suitable and secure for one of our dogs. If accepted, you can choose the dog you want and they will be reserved for you. Some dogs are ready to travel immediately, other dogs have to wait until they are old enough or have completed all of the requirements for travel.

The youngest a dog can travel is 15 weeks old due to the law on the rabies vaccination. Once you have chosen your dog, you will be ask to pay the deposit £100, you will be asked to pay the remaining amount 10-14 days before the dog travels. The rest is simple – you’ll simply pick up the dog at one of the pick up points in the UK and take them home! After a little while we’ll be in touch to arrange another visit, just to see how he or she is settling in, this is called a Follow up.
