For the attention of legal persons,
AMP is the first animal protection association founded in Romania. Pioneers of animal welfare activism, AMP staff members have managed to rescue more than 10,000 animals since it was founded—starting with cats and dogs and eventually helping horses, wolves, and bears. AMP has set up and now operates a dog shelter in Triaj, and is also known for the biggest brown bear sanctuary in Europe—Libearty Zărneşti. 77 bears are being cared for at the sanctuary. They were all rescued from tough conditions in captivity, and together they need more than a ton of food each day. The Victory dog shelter in Triaj is home to over 600 rescued dogs who would otherwise have died on the streets.
In 2013, we rescued seven bears imprisoned in poor conditions, a doe hunted by wolves, a deer accommodated near a guesthouse, and two donkeys abandoned in a field. In addition, 821 dogs found refuge at the Victory shelter in Triaj, 524 of them were placed for adoption abroad, and for 90 others, we found loving families in Brașov.
To carry out these actions we need the support of the private sector. Under Tax Code 571/2003 updated, Title 2, Ch. II, Article 21 (4), letter p, “taxpayers who make sponsorships and/or acts of patronage, according to Law no. 32/1994 on sponsorship, as amended, may deduct an amount of the tax if the total of these expenses meet the following conditions: - Is within 3 per thousand of sales; - Not exceed more than 20% of the tax.”
This means that you can designate an amount of the tax your business pays as a donation to the Millions of Friends Association. It doesn’t cost your company anything; moreover, it directly benefits animals, and your company gets free advertising . AMP will show its gratitude by publishing your company’s name and logo on its website at on www.amp.bears.ro. This site is visited by about 4,000 people a month from Romania and abroad.
In exchange for your donation, we can guarantee by invoices and receipts that 100% of the money received will be used exclusively for the benefit of animals. In addition, AMP can arrange special visits to the bear sanctuary for your partners and employees. If you like our proposal, download the sponsorship contract here. The contract is already filled in with AMP’s information. All you have to do is fill out the contract and give a copy to your company’s bookkeeper so he or she can complete the 101 electronic statement.
We hope to collaborate with you. You can contact us by e-mail at

President of AMP
AMP was founded in 1997 by Cristina and Roger Lapis, the then French Honorary Consul to Romania.There were so many stray dogs in the streets of Brasov, many of them ill and hungry, injured bycars. Cristina wanted to help them and began building a shelter … that was the beginning of the DogShelter Triaj.
In 1998 AMP began investigating tourists’ complaints about bears kept in horrible conditions in cages outside restaurants and petrol stations all over Romania. This eventually led to a collaboration in 2005with the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA) to construct the Libearty Bear Sanctuary in Zarnesti.
Today, AMP runs the Dog Shelter Triaj and Libearty Bear Sanctuary. In addition, the Association alsoworks to protect all animals in Romania through local projects, campaigns and education programmes.Please explore our website, meet our animal friends, and come and visit us in Brasov!
