Chained up Mum Mary and her Four Pups rescued – funds urgently needed to keep them safe.

See the moment Mum Mary is released from a life on a chain

This poor Mum called Mary has lived on her chain in Romania all her life. Sadly a common occurrence in this country.

She gave birth to her puppies still chained up… The owners wanted to throw the puppies in the river. Luckily a lovely woman helped them, and Pennypaws Rescue has had them transported to a safe shelter where they can be looked after and assessed.

But only if we can raise the £1000 needed to pay for three months in the shelter. Can you help us please – anything makes such a difference. 

Pennypaws Rescue is run solely by hard working dedicated volunteers, so you can rest assured that every penny donated goes directly to the dogs. Thank you

Pennypaws Rescue has many beautiful dogs ready for their forever homes, all saved from abuse, starvation and death in Romania. In Romania our dogs are assessed within safe shelters before being transported to the UK, where we find foster homes for them and then adoption.

If you are interested in adopting, fostering or sponsoring one of our dogs please contact Gill:

A lovely inspiring note from one of our adopters…
I have one of your beautiful dogs.  She is approx 3 years old and is the most loving dog I’ve had in over 50 years of dog ownership.  I’ve always had a rescue dog but most were the result of broken relationships or the death of an elderly owner.  Your dogs are special as you’ve actually saved their lives.  This makes me feel happy knowing that I’m giving a dog the chance to live, and know happiness, love, and comfort.
