This month we have teamed up with Vicky and her rescue dog Zafi (@on_ilkley_moor_with_zaf ) to raise awareness and funds for Rocky Road Rescue (@rocky_road_rescue).
We asked Vicky to tell us more about rescuing Zafi and the charity we're supporting this month...
We rescued Zafi from Romania back in October 2020, she's only been in our lives for 6 months but has absolutely completed our little family! We had recently moved out of the city and knew we wanted to rescue a dog. I spotted Zafi (then Tia) on rocky road rescues Facebook page and instantly fell in love! After a thorough home check to ensure we were the right people for Zafi, we had the short wait for her to come over from Romania on the happy bus to start her new life With us. With time and patience she's absolutely thrived and brings us joy each and every day!
A little about Rocky Road Rescue..
Rocky Road is a small organisation concentrating on rescuing a couple of dogs at a time from desperate situations in Romania. Romania has one of the biggest problems with stray dogs in Europe and a law passed in 2013 means that authorities can cull stray dogs. Dog catchers round up stray dogs and take them to a public shelter, where they are euthanaised after 14 days if they are not adopted. These shelters are often unhygienic and overcrowded meaning disease spreads quickly. Rocky Road are dedicated to getting these dogs out of dire situations and into loving forever homes here in the UK. Providing full vaccinations and support throughout the adoption process they have helped many dogs and cats not only start their new lives but thrive in their new homes.
