Romania Animal Rescue received this request for help from Mihaela in Tecuci. The city recently built a shelter to house the street dogs, but cannot afford to feed them regularly or properly. They are asking for our help to feed the dogs and the many puppies this cold winter that are now living at the shelter. Can you help us to help them please? Here is what Mihaela wrote to RAR:
"Public Shelter (PS) Tecuci was opened in Septembre 2013 by the City hall of Tecuci and it has a capacity for aprox .500 dogs .The PS ia already full and the dogs need your help so please : If you can help the dogs from Tecuci PS, they are desperate for some food. We try to help also the dogs ,we feed them with food from donation but they need more food for all , and especially the little ones which are in the quarantine area and the puppies that have no moms and need special food. Please If you are able to donate and help dogs from PS Tecuci your help will be so welcome! You can help the dogs with donation for food so we can provide them with a better and rich nutrition for adults ones or even if you are able to donate food for them. The little puppies who also needs special food like : milk,rice, canned meat etc. and we need to feed them everyday with these eatable. Also if you are able to help and donate for vaccination, medicine for the treatment of those who need it , beds, bedding , vitamins for the weak ones etc. Every small donation means so much for all the dogs from PS because we can provide them with more food for the adults, with special food for puppies , with vitamins, vaccination so they can be healthy and have a chance for adoption and for a better life, a life that every dog deserve ! Thank you in the name of all the dogs from Tecuci PS !! "
Romania Animal Rescue would like to thank you as well for reading this plea for help. The cold winter is setting in on Romania now, and the animals need food to stay warm this winter. Please help if you can. Thank you! The holidays are now upon us and we wish you a wonderful Holiday Season and New Year.

Dear Romania Animal Rescue Supporters and Friends,
As the winter is closing in on Romania, the street cats and kittens have a pretty tough time of it. They are subject to freezing cold temperatures and very little if any food. The heartbreak of seeing them trying to survive through the season is unbearable to those who love them but cannot afford to help.
This is why we turn to you, our fabulous supporters, so that we can provide free spay/neuter to keep unwanted litters of kittens from being born into a cold and unforgiving environment.
This year Romania Animal Rescue is once again holding our "Christmas is for Cats" campaign in Craiova, Romania, for 50 cat spay/neuters. In Iasi, we would like to provide for 50-100 free spays as well, but we simply cannot afford to do this without help.
Can you help us to provide free spay/neuter for the Iasi cats? Iasi, Romania's second largest city, provides a free spay/neuter program for dogs, but not for cats. This is where RAR comes in, and where you, our wonderful generous donors, come in. Can you help us to spay more cats for Christmas in Iasi?
Thank you for any support for this project, we really appreciate it, and I wish you a wonderful season of hope for the animals.

Our wonderful education books have been sent to many more towns in Romania, including Vatra Dornei, Ramnicu Sarat, and Buhusi. We are giving an additional 100 books to our German friends for their project of animal welfare in Sighet, Romania. All this great help is thanks to you, our donors. I hope you can sustain the cost for us to print more educational books for Romania. The cost is $1.79 per book, twenty page full color interactive books that young and old enjoy!
We received this comment from Roxana Pasat in Vatra Dornei:
"Education books in Vatra Dornei! from Romania Animal Rescue! Thank you for helping in Vatra Dorneii!

It`s an investment in the future! 100 educational booklets for children in Vatra Dornei. Thankyou RAR donors.♥" *Note: please also see the video that was done in Vatra Dornei by the Mayor, local Priest, and community organizer to announce our help for their city with free spay/neuter. The local Mayor and Priest are helping to educate too, inspired by the help of Romania Animal Rescue in their community!
And from Babi Sava in Buhusi:
"Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your help with both spay/neuter and now education in our schools! Our tremendous respect to your charity and to your donors!"
From Camelia in Ramnicu Sarat:
"Nancy, can we please please have 50 to 100 more booklets here for education? The need is so immense! Thank you to your donors!"
And now, I would like to thank you with all my heart for your support for this vital project. Thank you so much!
