The Harmony Fund is launching a massive renovations project to rebuild dangerous shelters located in Romania.
These dogs and volunteers belong to the Campalung shelter; the wet and cold winters can be very hard to deal with. Campalung is where most of the renovation efforts will center.
This is a block of kennels basically completely submerged in water.
"Sometimes the water comes in so quickly after a storm or snow melt and it’s almost impossible at times for the shelter staff to find a place to put all the dogs," said Harmony Fund founder Laura Simpson. "We’ll be tearing down these kennels and rebuilding elsewhere on the property to keep the dogs dry."
Here's a further glimpse at what the Campalung shelter actually looks like.
This group of dogs are just some who call the St. Francis shelter, near Bucharest, home.
