Browse through our categories below and enter as many as you like for as many dogs you like. Entry fees are per dog, per category, and cost just £2.00 and will help us feed our dogs in Romania, those less fortunate who didn’t get homes in time for Winter.
£2 will provide food for one dog for one week but we would really appreciate additional donations. Every penny will help and your gift will be put to work immediately.
Simply add the categories you would like to enter and checkout securely. Make sure you have your media ready as you will be asked to upload them when you pay.
Entries will close on 18th December 2020. Our judging panel will choose 5 finalists for each category. The finalists will be shared across our social media on 19th December at 6pm and the entry with the most likes in each category on 24th December at 6pm will be our winner! Winners will all receive an exclusive Pawprints to Freedom rosette and a certificate.
Winter in Romania
The Romanian winter is fast approaching. Without your help many of the dogs in shelters will not last through the winter… One of the biggest challenges is that the weather in Romania is harsh, reaching -25°C in winter, and most kennels are all outside.
These conditions would be difficult for a healthy adult dog but they are impossible for young, old and frail dogs. The death toll rises sharply in the winter as the weak die not only of illness but cold, often frozen to the ground they laid on for the night. During snowstorms, our hands are full.
There is no protection from the vicious minus degree temperatures in the winter. Dogs have to clamber over the snow to get to their frozen water troughs. Nothing is clean, and infection can spread like wildfire.
This winter, we strive to provide food and warmth to thousands of homeless dogs in Romania.
For the “nobody’s dogs” in Romania, there is no Santa, there is no Christmas. But with your help, we can change this! For Christmas, you can spread your magic and be Santa to a stray dog in need and help him survive with dignity!
Please be the Santa they never had.
