The Pack Project is a charity dedicated to finding loving homes for stray and abandoned dogs and cats in Romania. They also work tirelessly to reduce the stray population through neutering programmes and champion animal welfare through campaigning efforts. They offer a wide variety of dogs and cats of all ages, shapes, and sizes, so you’re sure to find your perfect furry friend!

In April the team visited the animal shelter in Romania run by Care For Dogs. Four members from Holby City also joined us, Rosie, Sarah- Jane, Bob and Guy.

The shelter currently has around 500 dogs within its care. The volume of dogs will never reduce due to the amount that are in kill shelters and on the streets. Kill shelters is where the dogs go if they are caught by the local dog catcher or if they are surrendered there by people.

Animals are legally classed as property in Romania so they have no rights. In kill shelters they have 14 days to find a home else they are killed. The only homes they have the chance of finding is that of a rescue shelter which still is not a proper home, it is purely just safe.

Within Romania it is normal within villages to drown puppies, cut off their limbs, cut their eyes out and much much more. On our trip to the shelter I met so many dogs and cats that have been brutalized at the hands of people but the one thing majority have in common is still the want and need to be loved.

On the 26th June there is a Cake Sale taking place in Ansty Business Park to help raise money so if you can donate a cake, tray bake or cookies then please get in contact with the charity. At the bake sale some art work designed especially for the pack project by Chloe Osbourne at C.E.O. artist will also be available to buy as well as custom design descriptive portraits can be ordered from Wayne Bewley from Dynamite Tattoos, both donating a percentage of their sales to the charity.

Also on the 29th June Arianna Tattoos, Lily Rain Tattoos and Rosie Elizabeth Tattoos will be holding a tattoo flash day where you can get tattooed with anything to do with dogs and cats and all money raised will be sent directly to the charity. There will be cakes and some non alcoholic drinks available in the garden area as well as having some art designs available to purchase on day.

Rosie Marcel and S-J Potts (who was also in Kinky Boots) will be there as well. We are contacting some of our other clients to discuss if they will attend so it will be worth popping by as you may see some famous faces.
