Founder & Trustee
I live in a quiet Suffolk village on the East Coast, married to my husband David. We have four rescue dogs from the UK and Romania. After seeing the conditions in which dogs in Romanian Shelters are kept and how little they are cared for, I felt compelled to try to change things for these dogs.
Trustee & Treasurer
I live in Scotland. My day job is with UK’s electricity transmission network. By night, I try to help dogs in Romania. It's hard to accept that in this day and age, animal suffering is acceptable in some countries and ignored in others. We can't change the world, but we can change it for these dogs.
I was born in Romania but I now live in a small village in the Lincolnshire area. As a child, seeing the stray dogs in Romania I think it’s disgusting how the Romanian government deals with the issue of stray and shelter dogs and I am grateful that charities such as Annie’s Trust get involved to help the dogs.
I’m family oriented, creative and a massive animal lover!. Since having my son, I've wanted to set a good example by helping charities and teaching him to be kind to all living things. Annie;s Trust is so important - I wanted to help the team make the lives of dogs in Romania more bearable. They all need a voice to speak up for them!
After learning about the plight of Romanian dogs via Annie's Facebook page, I was simply horrified and immediately asked "how can I help".
Annie's is the only UK charity to work so closley with a Romanian shelter and together, we can really make an impact. The dogs in the shelter and on the streets are no different to the dogs in our homes.
I am very passionate about animals and just want to love & help them. I have been a vetinary nurse both in the UK and in Romania for around 12 years. I have helped with spay campaigns and delivering care at the Centre of Hope clinic in Romania.

I’m Julia Burns, a retired secondary school teacher of Welsh from Cardiff, living with husband John Loaring and our 2 rescue dogs, Rico and Elsi. I’ve been doing fundraising and passport admin for Annie’s Trust since September 2019. I also do homechecks for another dog rescue centre here in Wales.
I've had animals all my life. They have helped me through so much and I have a lot to thank them for. I have 9 dogs, 16 chickens, 2 ducks, a tortoise and a horse. I love getting involved with animal rescue, especially Romanian dogs I want to see as many as I can, have a better life!
