About SD Caring for Canines



Founder and CEO of SD Caring for Canines, Eva Gallant has always had a love for animals. Watching and hearing stories about abused dogs around the world has been particularly heartbreaking for her.

In an effort to do something when the war in Ukraine broke out, Eva headed to Romania to help build kennels, using her plaster skills from her artwork at  Once on location, Eva Gallant became painfully aware of the utter abuse and attitude toward dogs in Romania. She discovered that private shelters are few and rare and many of them struggle beyond measure. These shelters have no help other than rely on the kindness and generosity of donors, which especially in this economy is becoming more and more difficult. There is no money to pay even the caretakers, nor invest in a formal website for funding for any social media advertising.


Eva made it her endeavor to recognize these struggling shelters. Her personal commitment is to give 35% of the earnings of her artist commissions to these shelters, especially APAI, Salvare a Cateilor Abandonati and Solace for Strays, Asociatia Patru Labute as well as fundraising by selling some of her creations.

Along with this website and FB page, she hopes to reach more people and appeal to their kindness and generosity to support these shelters and animals in need with food and medical care bills for the animals.

When you commission Eva and YKC you embellish your home and directly contribute to good being done in the world.
