Saving Balkan


Who are we:

We are a small non profit organisation set up to help find homes for rescue Boxers from the Balkans.

These dogs face very difficult lives, some with no food or shelter, kept on chains, unloved and unwanted, starving and uncared for.

With the help of some fantastic people in the Balkans, we can give them a second chance.

We rely entirely on our supporters who fund raise tirelessly, to help with their transport, care and food, and also find homechecked homes. We provide rescue back up to these dogs for the rest of their lives.

Some of these dogs have never lived in a home and will need extra time adjusting, some have been in a home but not the way you and I understand it, so may need to learn even the most basic skills such as toilet training.

You also need to be aware that they wont understand you at first, so will need time and patience, but these dogs have proved to be the most wonderful companions.

If you could open your home and heart to one of these dogs that have gone through so much, then please check out our dogs needing homes page, and complete initial application in the first instance.   We look forward to hearing from you.


There are so many ways you can help. Perhaps you would be able to do a homecheck for us local to you? Can you offer transport to move dogs sometimes at short notice?  Something as simple as sharing our facebook posts can really make the difference between a dog staying in kennels or finding a forever home quickly. 

We are a non profit organisation relying solely on donations, so if you would like to organise a fundraiser, or make a regular or one off donation please checkout our fundraising page for more info.
