The Story

Rudozem Street Dog Rescue (RSDR) is a non-profit foundation that rescues Street Dogs in Bulgaria and finds loving homes for them.

RSDR Registered Foundation No: 175647065
email: [email protected] 

Earlier this year (February 2013) we were advised by a Rudozem municipality representative that if the shelter was not up to EU standard soon, RSDR would close, and our Founder would be charged. (radio interview with founder Diane Rowles).

It is now July 2013, and no action has been taken against RSDR by the municipality, however we still need to be vigilant in fundraising towards renovations and make sure each of our target goals have been met. We know that the overall goal of renovation of the "whole shelter" will be long term and could take years, however the builder has said he will work with us in stages as and when we raise the funds and work can be done.

We hope that by seeing progress of the renovations on the shelter will help appease the municipality and hold off any action.

It has taken to July for us to get quotations, due to sorting out paperwork and guidelines with the municipality, and checking if an architects plans were required. We have now received quotations and have target goals set. 

PLEASE DONATE- We appeal for your help in making a donation towards our third goal of fundraising which is for closing os the open plan of the front of the building.

TARGET 1  -  17,785.15 levs ( 9093.54 euros) - COMPLETED

The first target is for putting windows throughout the whole building, windows in the upstairs section the builder added for storage when he did the roof, a staircase and upstairs flooring. He will then see what materials he has left before giving another quote for putting ceilings in the middle and end part of the building.

UPDATE -  First Target Goal fundraiser has been met as at 4 September 2013 -  Builder to start renovations on the 7 September 2013. 


There was some confusion with the translation on the first quote as we originally thought it was for putting windows throughout the whole building.  The quote actually only includes putting windows in the first shed of the building, and does not include the middle and end shed so this would need to be quoted for later.  The quote does include as we had thought previously the staircase and upstairs flooring and windows.  

We were surprised however that the builder had installed doors and closed off the Open Front plan of the building (which had been our current Target 3 fundraiser).  After discussion with the builder, we found that this was included in our Target 1 quote.  So I have revised Target 3 with our latest quote. 

Photo One- Old photo of Open end of building.   New photo -  Of finish product.

The builder advised us that quote 1 went over the costs he quoted, so he gave us a revised copy and told us the difference we have to pay which is 1,377.96 Levs.   This amount will go on as part of our Target 3 fundraiser.
