Helping the stray dogs in Bulgaria - a task not for the faint hearted

Bulgaria has many street dogs who are often subjected to the most horrendous cruelty. They are kicked, beaten and shot on a regular basis for no other reason than that it provides certain individuals with amusement. Many of these dogs are injured, in pain, or starving and in the winter there is a high chance that they will freeze to death. Rudozem Street Dog Rescue is doing all they can and more to help the animals in Bulgaria but the odds are against them and even the municipality is against the rescue. This interview is a sad account about a cruel world where even those who help are not immune to persecution



  1. Never underestimate that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world, indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.

  2. This is true. And in municipal shelters is worse than in the street. Dogs on arrival unloaded with shovels . Do not leave them neither food nor water. The next day they were all killed . How to close the municipal shelters ?
