Elisa was born in Romania but then spent many years growing up and living in the US. She returned to her native country in 2015 with her husband, to set up a blueberry farm in Northern Romania.
Having witnessed the volume of the dogs on the street, Elisa just could not stand back and so they turned part of their land into a dog shelter and have not stopped rescuing dogs (and cats) since.
Elisa’s passion and love for animals is clear to see and hear in her interactions with them. As well as rescuing animals, Elisa is also very passionate about spay and neuter and works with her local vet to provide a free service to locals. She is also working hard to educate her local community on animal care and respect.

Oana started working with us when she made contact via Catalina & Patrick to help rescue a horse that had been dumped in a field and was badly injured.
We then discovered that she also helps many dogs near her home by feeding them and taking them in when she can, and her love of animals became very clear.
Oana wanted to be able to help more dogs to find homes and so we are working with her to rehome dogs to the UK. She has a special bond with animals and would do anything to help them.
