Scruffs Supports ‘Barking Mad’ Rehoming Charity
“We welcome the opportunity to support fundraising events [and] to help registered charities improve the welfare of pets less fortunate than our own,” said a Scruffs representative. “Barking Mad Dog Rescue provide a much-needed service for the dogs of Romania, and we will continue to offer our full support as they tackle this problem.”
Barking Mad Dog Rescue was formed after Hilary Anderson and Alex Shipp traveled to Romania to understand the stray and abandoned dog problem across the country.
“Nothing could have prepared the Barking Mad team for the impact of seeing so many beautiful, affectionate dogs, all desperate for attention, crammed into a small shelter. Many were thin, all were full of ticks and fleas,” said Anderson and Shipp.
Today, the charity has teams that visit Romania every two months, and has helped over 1,000 dogs find new homes in both the UK and Germany. The charity also feeds around 850 dogs every day across its network of partner shelters.
Scruffs donated several pet bedding and accessory items to support the charity in its efforts and activities across Romania. In the coming months, the charity will stock selected Scruffs products on its online shop.
