Welcome to RACE (Romanian Animal Care Europe).

As a dog adoption and rescue charity, our purpose is to find homes for the puppies and dogs that have come into our care from being abandoned on the streets or badly abused. All the rescues live with our frontline worker and fosterer, Elena Popa, where they are properly socialised and get plenty of human interaction with the other dogs and cats.

When we do find forever homes for our rescues, we want them to be right, for both the dog and the family. We work hard to achieve that as we like a happy ending. Please enjoy meeting some of our dogs on this site, all of whom were rescued from the streets or from Romanian Public shelters.
