Love Underdogs are a UK based charity that was started in 2011 and specialise in the rescue and rehoming of dogs across Europe including the UK, Germany, France and Romania. All our rescue dogs are assessed behaviourally and medically in the UK before being re-homed into that caring forever homes that they deserve.
After a trip to Romania back in 2012 we were appalled to witness some of the most most unwanted, abused, neglected and voiceless dogs whose lives had been nothing but pain and suffering so we decided to help these true underdogs and began rehoming dogs from a shelter there.
Since our adventure's with dogs started, we have been asked many times what makes Romanian dogs worthy of saving when so many British dogs are also abandoned each year…
Indeed why dogs, when children need help? Why animals, when hospitals are struggling? Why one species over another?
In truth, there is no good answer however children do need food and love, hospitals do need funds and dogs and cats here and abroad need help and pain and suffering must be alleviated wherever possible.
We all have different sensibilities and different things make us sad or tug at us until we feel compelled to act. That is what gives us hope that we can change the world, it is one of the singular wonders of the human spirit. Let us never change the fact that we are different, but let us all help where we think we should or can.
Both in the UK and throughout Europe we aim to raise the standards for dogs we rescue by way of better care, better accommodation, strong adoption ethics and post adoption support.
Great things can be achieved when we all work together towards a common goal and we welcome you to join us on this wonderful journey. Click here to find out more about Love Underdogs.
