Orphaned animals and children have both experienced loss and trauma. When the two are brought together in a family, it is incredible to watch the healing unfold. This is why we at Ting Ministries have a heart for both orphan and animal rescue. We have partnered with several animal shelters and rescues in different countries.
Shelter Friend – Ukraine (Website and on Facebook).
This non-profit charity and rehabilitation center is located in Dnepropetrovsk, Ukraine. The Carpenters’ daughter Olyvia was from this same region of Ukraine. Ting Ministries is personal friends with the director of this locally-based organization. Shelter Friend currently cares for over 500 abandoned street dogs in Ukraine. International adoptions are welcome!
The Laika Fund for Street Dogs (Also on Facebook here).
The Laika Fund is a non-profit organization based in Canada that works to help street dogs around the world. Our friends at The Laika Fund have several main areas of operation: Romania, Kosovo, India, Thailand, and Belize, (as well as the UK for fostering/re-homing some of the dogs). They emphasize their global vision – making positive changes for street dogs everywhere – and have built a network of 100% volunteers to assist in transport, fostering, and rescue.
Animal Rescue in Romania
Ting Ministries works with several animal rescues and a vet tech in Romania to rescue dogs and other abandoned animals.
