Wow.That's really wonderful to hear. If we could just get one celebrity per country,obviously $250,000 isn't a huge amount for them but attracts notoriety and means the world to the poor animals and the simple dedicated supporters.

I heard about this many months ago. I was hoping that it would have gotten farther along by now. I've been keeping a watch on this because I really want to help. No word yet on how to donate to the Wild Dogs of Romania Sanctuary.
