Who We Are

Founded by Rosemary Briggs in 1999, Roscan Dog Sanctum is a dedicated organization in providing care for the neglected animals.

For nearly a decade, people living in poverty have raised their voices and demanded that the government take over in lending a helping hand. This, however, was not the case. With hundreds and thousands of animals starving, tortured and left for dead without proper food. Rosemary decided to raise awareness and help out where she can.
