About

Street Hearts BG is an NGO based in Bulgaria, founded in 2015 by Anthony and Emma Smith. We aim to end the suffering of dogs in Bulgaria. In order to achieve this, we have several approaches to tackle the issues affecting dogs.

Firstly we have an emphasis on neutering and spaying. This is an effective control in reducing the stray dog population and preventing unwanted puppies on the streets. Our main aim is to neuter street dogs and work with owners to educate and facilitate neutering their pets. Many dogs have been abandoned on the streets because they are ill, pregnant or the owners simply do not want them anymore. By educating and providing free neutering we aim for this problem to decrease

Previously we neutered and released dogs, however many dogs on the streets are discarded pets. Experience showed released dogs were unable to survive on the streets and faced starvation, abuse and even poisoning.

Due to this fact, we rescue as many dogs as our capacity allows, always accepting puppies. After rescuing dogs, we commit to finding forever homes for them wherever that may be.

So far we have neutered over 1000 dogs, neutered 202 cats and re-homed over 600 dogs.


Street Hearts BG works with two dog charities in the UK: Wild at Heart Foundation based in the London area and Dogs 4 Rescue in Manchester. These two charity partners assist us in the adoption process, including home checks and post adoption care, which frees up valuable time for the team at Street Hearts BG to focus on rescuing, neutering and training the dogs in preparation for when they go to their homes. 

All the dogs rescued by Street Hearts BG are socialised and lead trained, and are fully vaccinated and neutered before being transported to the UK. Street Hearts BG also provides a lifetime rescue backup for every dog we rescue, to ensure that each dog will be cared for and if necessary will rehome dogs again should their new owners have to let them go.

Despite our network in place to help rehome dogs in the UK, Street Hearts BG needs your help. We currently only have one van, which is able to transport only 20 dogs at a time, and we currently have a long waiting list of dogs in Bulgaria to rescue.

Some dogs are not fit to be returned to the streets due to illness, injury or simply because they will be harmed by people. We rehabilitate these dogs, train them and look to find them homes at our fully licensed dog shelter. All puppies that we find are kept by us so that they can be rehomed and have a life that all dogs deserve.

We have a small annual budget from the municipality for neutering dogs which quickly runs out as we are neutering on average 6 dogs a week. We rely on fundraising events and public donations to fund neutering, medical care, food and build suitable facilities for the dogs.

Where will your money go?

£7 could stop a dog having ticks and fleas

£12 could vaccinate dogs from diseases

£13 could feed one adult dog for a month

£24 could neuter a male dog

£41 could spay a female dog
(Neutering is vital to prevent unwanted puppies suffering on the streets)

We re-home dogs in Bulgaria, Germany and the UK. We are fully licensed type 2 transporters and take our dogs to other countries under the TRACES scheme as required by EU law.

With your support we can help more dogs like Hope
