To sponsor you just need to pick a dog or cat and let us know your donation is for sponsorship.
By sponsoring you help that dog or cat to receive everything it needs before it finds its forever home: food, microchipping, vaccinations, neutering (where appropriate). Whatever you can afford will be a great help.
To sponsor a dog or cat, please send donations via PayPal. Please let us know this is for monthly sponsorship, and if you would like to select a cat or dog in particular let us know. All of the dogs and cats in our care can be sponsored whether profiled for adoption or not. We have at this time around 170 dogs and around 25 cats in our care.
In our care are a number of dogs and cats who will likely never be rehomed or have the chance to travel to a forever home, for those, they will remain for Florentina for their natural life. Unfortunately for many, the past experiences and traumas are too much and they will simply never trust anyone else.
Left to Right - Photos: Big King was saved from the Public Shelter, we don't know his past other than he has not been treated well by humans. He was immediately taken out and to the safety of the yard where he remains currently. Through patience and love he learned to trust Florentina as much as was possible. He will never fully be a hands on dog who will appreciate hugs and ear rubs, but for him life is good. He has companionship daily, visits daily with food and water and vet care as it is needed. Big King has a lovely playful side, he is a great gentle dog with the others in his enclosure. Big King will remain with Florentina.
Rhyana (middle) is one of our longer term cats. Rhyana has been with us since before Animal Rescue Crew started. She is currently being profiled for adoption and in time, we hope she will find her forever family. In the meantime a monthly sponsor would help us to cover the expenses for her and the many others in our care each month. Your sponsorship pays for food, cat litter, special medications, vet treatment and visits and a list of other expenses depending on each cat: microchipping, neutering, vaccinations, flea and worm treatments.
Tina (far right) was a stray, she has likely never been a companion to humans, born on the street and has had no handling or positive interactions with people. She was tranquilised by a vet and brought to safety with her 3 very small pups during late 2012/early 2013. She is a very fearful and timid dog, she does interact a little with Florentina, however like Big King is not a hands on dog and never will be. She has companionship constantly, regular daily food and water, vet care as is needed and most importantly is safe for the rest of her life. She will remain with Florentina.
Sponsors are a lifeline for each dog and cat. Without financial assistance on a regular basis we couldn't help as many dogs and cats as we do. Florentina and her husband Florin already put as much of their own funds into the rescuing of the animals as they can, but they need our support.
With a sponsor for each dog and cat, we are able to keep the transport costs to a minimum. A transport donation covers all transport costs from Constanta to Edinburgh in the UK only.
"I rescued my dog Ben 1 year ago today from ARC. I had never owned a dog before but I knew I was ready and had a lot of love to give to a wee pooch. ARC made sure I was fully prepared and equipped to ensure I would be the right owner for a wee dog."
