On 28 October, The Donkey Sanctuary's Romanian project will welcome a visit from the British Ambassador to Romania, Paul Brummell, who will be touring the model shelter for dogs, donkeys and horses Footprints of Joy at Cernavoda (county of Constanta).
This is the first visit of the diplomat successor of Martin Harris, who opened the facility in 2012 together with his Italian counterpart Mario Cospito.
The wonderful shelter – built according to European standards – is home to 350 dogs, around 60 donkeys and 11 horses, all abandoned or mistreated animals cared for by Save the Dogs and other Animals.
Among the partners of the Romanian association there are major British organisations, such as Dogs Trust (which in 2015 funded the activity of the mobile clinic in rural areas) and The Donkey Sanctuary, association protecting donkeys all over the world, entirely sponsoring Save the Dogs’ programme for these animals.
“We are honoured to receive the visit of his Excellency Ambassador Paul Brummell” says the President of Save the Dogs Sara Turetta. “We have always benefited from a very important support from the British diplomacy, also because the United Kingdom is undoubtedly one of the most sensitive European countries about animal rights”.
The Ambassador will be welcomed by the director of the association Filippo Agostino and also by veterinarians and staff who, during 13 years of activity, have helped and assisted thousands of animals in this part of Romania.
