Paola has always had a special space in her heart for animals, especially for dogs. The dog of her life, Affe, was a rescue with a heart full of love and adventures. After Affe passed away Paola wanted to do more for rescued stray dogs and so begun a new adventure with the Finnish rescue dog association Kulkurit Ry.
Accompanied by the volunteers of Kulkurit Ry Paola started her trip to Romania on the 24th of August 2015. She spent two weeks filming the dogs in need and helping the volunteers with their work. She took part in Rosiori de Vede -mass sterilization process and rescued dogs from the pounds and kill shelters.
On this emotional rollercoaster off a trip Paola got to witness sorrow and despair, but she also got to take part when the dogs were helped by the local vets and other animal lovers.
These pictures were shot both digital and black & white film and portray the lives of the abandoned hobo dogs from the streets of Romania.
