I had been traveling for some time and was looking for a place to settle for some days while helping, when I came to hear about this incredible story:
Helen, a lady from the UK who left her home in London and decided to open a dog sanctuary using her own money and resources after seeing the appalling treatment of many Bulgarian dogs through her work with a dog rehoming organisation in the UK.
Helen’s House of Hope initially started with three dogs – Hope, Faith and Charity – and has expanded considerably since to welcome over 80 dogs now! Most victim of abuse or injured. And she was doing it all on her own until recently. Waking up everyday at 5am for the 1st feeding and walking until 9pm, 7days a week!
Many of the rescued dogs make significant progress and are restored to full health during their stay at Helen’s House of Hope.
They have already found permanent, happy homes for some of the dogs, but many are still looking for the right home.
Those dogs have had quite sad life before arriving here. So many sad stories : broken bones, attached all their life. Now they are happy thanks to Helen and the volunteers.
