It all started seven years ago, when Lilian Andersson from Norrköping started her first account on social media. For Lilian - who loves dogs - it was almost a shock when in her flow she began to roll pictures of thousands of captured and emaciated street dogs, often placed in so-called death fences.



- Then I realized what misery they have in Romania. You don't want these dogs to cost the community anything, so they stomp them to death like cockroaches. My heart was bleeding and I felt I had to do something, says Lilian Andersson.

Lilian Andersson decided to save the vulnerable street dogs and for the past seven years, both privately and together with an association, she has helped about 100 dogs to get new owners and homes in Sweden.

"We must take a shared responsibility"

Lilian Andersson works intently with the street dogs and today calls herself an "non-profit home traveler", where she helps new owners with transport home to Sweden at paid costs.

- It does not matter where the dog is born, we have to take a joint responsibility, whether it is Swedish dogs or if they come from another EU country. This is at least a way to do something, says Lilian Andersson.
