About Us & the People Behind RAR/ASNI

RAR/ASNI were set up in 2003, following a hiking trip that founder Nancy Janes took to Romania. Having witnessed the problem of homeless dogs first hand, Nancy decided to set up a charity to help find a solution. Since then, many more vets and volunteers joined Nancy to make up RAR as we know it today:  a dedicated bunch of animal lovers, passionate about improving animal welfare and ending animal suffering.   

We are members of Global Giving, Combined Federal Campaign, Animal Cherities of America and Americas Best Charities.

On her trip, Nancy met so many homeless, ill and injured dogs that when she returned to California, she decided to do something to help them. Since then, Nancy and the RAR team have helped thousands of dogs and cats. Below are the stories of some of the animals that changed our lives
