Ricky Gervais has a pretty rich history in terms of fundraising or helping unlucky animals. When a public dog shelter from Odai, Romania receiver 650 starving and sick dogs, it was obvious that they were about to die in terrible conditions pretty soon. Romania has gained a negative reputation around Europe as one of the countries with little to no respect for animals.
But when the UK based K9 Angels agency stepped in to help, Ricky Gervais gave these angels a hand by tweeting the fundraising link. Donations skyrocketed and the dogs have finally received the food they deserved. Luckily for them, a team of volunteers is on site to monitor the feeding and care.
