Help for rescued animals
Santerpaws Bulgarian Rescue
Having lived in Bulgaria now for 3 years, we have tried to support and help as many destressed animals as possible, sadly this comes at a cost and we now need help and support from others to find homes, foster and finance this.  Santerpaws was my affix when we lived in UK and used to show our bearded collies and, bless them, they are still very much here giving the support that they can.

Until one has loved an animal a part of one's soul remains unawakened.

You can't buy love, but you can rescue it.

Some People wonder why I want to help animals,  I don't understand why they wonder...

About Us

We are Justine and Pete. After working many years in the civil service we retired to northern Bulgaria some three years ago - a great country with very friendly people.  We are now dedicated to working together to alleviate as much of the suffering of animals as we can in our area.  We rescue, rehome, and neuter dogs from our village and those around us, with many finding forever homes in the U.K. and Germany. This is all accomplished through the gift of donations, and on the ground support here  in Bulgaria, and as well as remotely in Germany and the U.K. by volunteers. We believe that every dog deserves love, every dog deserves a home.
