After being hit by a car, May was soaking, frightened and close to death. We're raising money for her surgery & rehabilitation.

Hit by a car and left for dead, When we found her in torrential rain May was  soaking wet and in deep shock. At first we didn't know if she would survive and X-rays revealed that she had a seriously broken front leg and a pelvic fracture.

It wasn't an option to delay surgery so we went ahead immediately and her broken front leg was fixed with a plate. She's a fighter and we're pleased to say that May is now recovering well although, as a result of the injuries to her pelvis, she will never walk normally on her back left leg.

At the moment she is being cared for one of our partner rescue organisations in Bucharest and, when she is ready,  we hope to find her a forever home in the UK. Unsurprisingly after her ordeal she was very frightened and, although she is now growing in confidence, she needs a home without other pets or children. She's still a youngster and we think she is between one and two years old.

As well as finding May a home, we need to raise money to cover the cost of her operation and ongoing care. We are a small charity without deep pockets, so rely entirely on the generosity of our supporters. If you've been moved by May's story and would like to make a donation to this appeal we would be enormously grateful.

Make a difference

We are raising funds to cover the cost of May's surgery and ongoing care. We also want to find her a loving home. Because she is understandably a bit timid and will never walk normally on her back leg she needs a quiet home without other pets or children.

How success will be measured

Our aim is for May to have a long and happy life in a forever home where she will be loved and cared for.

Barking Mad Dog Rescue

Charity Reg No: 1160985

We’re Barking Mad Dog Rescue. We’re a UK registered charity (1160985) working to improve the lives of abandoned dogs in Romania. We have a hands-on team in Romania at our shelters in Constanta and Calarasi, where we care for around 450 dogs and puppies, many of whom have been rescued from unimaginable abuse and neglect. We also provide food, vet care and support to two other shelters in Romania. In total, we feed 700 dogs every single day. In the UK, we have a team of volunteer adoption specialists working with potential adopters and foster carers across the country. We aim to rehome as many of the dogs we save as we can. Some though, will never be suitable to make that journey. They are available for sponsor. If you think you can offer a home to one of our dogs or if you’re interesting in fundraising or getting involved with Barking Mad in any way at all, then please contact us.
