Romanian soccer players team up to rehome these dogs
Location: Bucharest, Romania
The country's top tier players carry stray dogs onto the pitch
as part of an initiative to find homes for abandoned animals
(SOUNDBITE) (Romanian) WORKER AT ILFOV COUNTY ANIMAL PROTECTION OFFICE, ANCA FLOREA, SAYING:"We feature six dogs at every match and usually the players fight over who gets to hold the dogs when they enter the pitch. There are plenty of animal lovers in the team."
18 dogs have been presented at the matches so far
Three dogs have been adopted
and three more pups have received inquiries
(SOUNDBITE) (Romanian) SOCCER PLAYER FOR ACADEMICA CLINCENI TEAM, CRISTIAN GAVRA, SAYING:"It's a nice initiative and I hope people will see the pups and adopt them."
