“DANA COSTIN…DID NOT WANT TO TAKE THE DOGS TO THE VET -DOGS WERE NOT DEWORMED,VACCINATED – DOGS HAVE DIED IN TERRIBLE PAIN ,WERE SCREAMING – SHE WAS HITTING DOGS – GAVE THEM NO MERCY – ANYWHERE IN THE BODY -EYES,ABDOMEN – YOUR HEART BRAKES – FOOD WERE RESTRICTED ALL THOUGH SHE ,(DANA COSTIN) COULD AFFORD ALL LUXURY IN THE WORLD HOW MUCH MONEY (DANA COSTIN) HAD -SHE DESINFESTATE THEM ONLY WHEN SOMEONE COME TO VISIT – OR ADOPT – PEOPLE ASK HER DESPERATE FOR STERILIZATIONS -IF YOU ASK FOR HELP WITH ANY DOG , SHE (DANA COSTIN) VERY  RARELY ANSWER THE PHONE – AND THEY SAY IT IS FOUNDATION FOR ANIMAL WELFARE . ” Editor.
“Dana Costin started thinking like a business, not as a charity. She began to buy land from all the NGO’S donations , thenbrought a few dogs, she made cages and then began to ask for further help from foundations … How Dana Costin attract funds: take pictures as more appealing, in that miserable tions that the world can say,,, poor dog,really need help ”or looking on the internet for pictures to post and can impress the world …. easy to persuade foundationsbegan gently, began to receive the kinds of donations she did not realize …. does not care to have so many things that could use that can help dogs …. but she neededmoney…later started coming a lot of money …. has something built in to the shelter … but in the shelter dogs were dead in the end … because Dana Costin has little soul … did not want to take the dogs to the vet because she was tired, because it was far enough, though meanwhile foundations have donated money for the car to move smoothly with dogs, but it wasvery hard to take those dogs to the vet, was a great effort …… Dogs have died in terrible pain … were screaming …. No heart…she was hitting dogs like a cloth … gave them no mercy…she was hitting them in any area of the body … no matter that is in front, eyes or in the abdomen … …. your heart breaks …food was restricted although she can afford the luxury of theworld how much money had … dogs were not dewormed, vaccinated …She desinfestate them only when someone comes to visit, or if someone comes to adopt one … . If you ask for help with any dog …. Very rarely answer the phone …. And they say it’s the foundation for animal welfare ….And what she does /?…. comes and takes it and leaves it in another district … like that Dana Costin is helping the animals…It’s a girl who makes people head: only money she stands for … every time trying to make money from everything …. andhere I refer to the pictures she put on site (they must be as dramatic and more attractive, or even taken from the net), many of which say do not (she said that she will pay for hundred sterilizations per month, and it only makes a quarter, althoughshe had money for more number of sterilizations, and people asked her desperate help for sterilizations”
Editors note:  Please see testimonial from Daniela Paun, which states much the same information in regards to  sterilization campaigns.

  1. Oh, damn, I’ve already thought that she deals with animals not squeamish, but to read this is even worse than I thought and it shocks me. I knew she wasn´t with the puppy that I would have not gone to the vet. Until now I was annoyed, but I thought she wasn´t gone, because Romania has generally a high puppy mortality and it would have been futile to go to the vet and also wasted money. But to know, that dogs in her CARE in her SHELTER with obvious pain and suffering from out of laziness or greed aren´t taken to the vet, makes me shiver. Donors give their money for the welfare and the recipient of the dogs and the receiver of the money doesn´t use it to provide the dogs miserable lifes. This is more than shabby.

    I remember the poor dog Hope at the ROLDA shelter. She had a terrible heart condition, congestive heart failure, and could not stop coughing, constant coughing. I was with Kim Bartlett and her family at the shelter in 2004. Dana told Kim and I that Hope had a bad heart. Kim asked Dana to please take her to the vet for treatment as there are medications to relieve the build up of fluids in the dog’s lungs. Dana did nothing. Constant chronic coughing with no rest or relief. She soon died a miserable death after suffering that should have been alleviated. There is no way you can make Dana Costin do the right thing if she does not want to do it.

    Expose and shame !!

    I have no personal information on this woman however if she is acting as a charity and not performing as one. I hope someone has the power to take her down.
    Shameful to use animals against the many of us who want the best for animals. I guess it is going to happen from time to time, just always a shame as the animals suffer.

    it is very sad, I have given funds to supposed rescues that lied and did not say the truth. sadly so many people lie cheat and are beyond disgusting and unsrucupulous. Sadly one has to really KNOW and see to be sure. I give to the Haven, in NC, UCC, Unchain Cumberland in North Carolina and helpanimalsindia.com
    I haven’t SEEN first hand but I believe those are truthful honest rescues. If everyone told the truth and were impeccable with their words, did not come from greed/hatred and/or ignorance as Buddha said the world could be such a wonderful place. Who knows the truth? Life is not fair and assholes get away with MURDER (literally). Wish we could put ALL the bad people together, they eat vegan and if they KILLED anything it would have to just be other BAD people as they would NOT be allowed access to any living beings OTHER than other BAD people! Good luck if you ever find the truth. Lets hope if this person is as bad as this says she gets hit by a truck or something and leaves the planet right away!

  9. This is no surprise! She lied to me about adopting a puppy from Romania, and NEVER came through. I couldn’t afford to pay the cost, but my rescued dogs are given the best care and love. I told her that, and she said okay, but dropped it. Never heard from her again!!!! She’s in it for the money, not the best welfare of the dogs.

    Thank God I didn’t send her any money since it wasn’t used on her dogs. Shame on her, and thank you for revealing this fact.

    Why doesnt someone privately investigate her. Maybe have someone go there to work, but while they are there they can see whats going on. like the aspca and peta do. If she is abusing and neglecting animals then she needs to be shut down. If she is taking good care of them, then she needs to be left alone. but the truth needs to come out so that animals are protected

  11. John says:

    Ms. Nancy Janes, find some local lawyer and start start a lawsuit against her! You can even do it without a lwayer!

  12. Jayne says:

    If only she wasn’t in Romania! Their legal system isn’t the best and we know those in power over there don’t give a toss about animal welfare 🙁
