Twenty million stray dogs are brutally killed every year on this planet

That’s 38 every minute. Please help us make a difference today…

Donate Now!

K9 Rescue is focused on making a difference to the treatment of abandoned dogs in developing countries with our work primarily in Eastern Europe where dogs are seen as vermin by the majority and treated accordingly with poisoning, beatings and torture.

In addition to running our Rehabilitation Sanctuary in the UK for traumatised street dogs, we supply food, medical supplies and veterinary aid to grass roots rescues in the poorest and hardest hit countries of Eastern Europe; currently the emergency animal aid that is desperately needed in Ukraine. By donating today, you will be directly helping animals both displaced by the war in Ukraine, as well as the rescues in neighbouring countries who are taking in the displaced animals.  Please help us make a difference today.

Why do we Rescue from Eastern Europe?...

Stray dogs and cats are found in high numbers in every village, town and city. Sadly they are subjected to horrific animal abuse – whilst some residents feed the strays, many others attack them. We have found dogs tortured, poisoned, hung, shot, stabbed, raped, set on fire, purposely run over, dragged behind cars, bludgeoned to death, mouths and limbs tied up, mutilated and left to die a slow, agonising death. This is why…
