I`m Mihaela Raducanu, the representative of Association for Animal Protection ‘’Tomita’’ in Tecuci, Romania. We are a small NGO in a small town, but lucky enough that Romania Animal Rescue and amazing Nancy Janes from USA have been helping us with 100 free of charge spays and neuters for the dogs and cats with and without owner in our little town, every month, since 2010. Thanks to their very kind and generous donors there were castrated over 3500 dogs and cats. They also donated over 2500 booklets for our children in the school, about the importance of s/n and taking good care of their pets, and also very important RAR helped us find good homes for some of our fostered doggies.We still have many dogs and cats in our foster care, and the most urgent needing right now is the food. Untill we will find good home for them, we need to feed 50 hungry tummies – 36 doggies and 14 kitties (4 are pups and 11 are kittens, all of them needing wet food, which is also more expensive than dry food).We hope and would be very grateful if you can help us provide their food. Please know that every and each donation is so very important for them. Giving a little you help a lot, you help an innocent creature not to starve. It`s so very hard to provide their food, specialy when our financial resources are so very poor and we also need to provide other needed things, as medicine, deworming, vaccines, warm shelter for winter etc. Please consider to donate for them, too, to get some food. Thank you so very much for your support.Mihaela Raducanu,Association for Animal Protection ’’Tomita’’
Meet Ranna and her puppies.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ArfwZcpa67c&feature=youtu.be
Abandoned on the side of the road with a chain tied around the mama, whom we named Ranna. Starving and left alone next to the freeway, this sweet mama dog and her 2 infant pups were sure to die. Then came along a van full of loving vets and techs, the Homeless Animals Hospital Team of Romania Animal Rescue, returning from another spayathon in the nearby city of Tecuci.
Dr. Aurelian Stefan stopped the van, and the Ranna and her sweet puppies were fed and taken back to foster care in Tecuci. This lovely family prospered in the wonderful care of our Dream Team member Mihaela in Tecuci.
And now the grand finale......Ranna and her puppies were recently driven down to Moreni. Ranna was spayed at the Romania Animal Rescue Moreni Spayathon! She will never have puppies again! AND.....she and her two puppies will travel to the UK for foster and adoption thanks to our Dream Team member Anda in Moreni!
This amazing story of compassion and love is made possible with your donations. It is one of the many things that Romania Animal Rescue's Homeless Animals Hospital does for the Romanian animals, such as treat dire emergencies for homeless animals in need, help the animals of the poor and homeless citizens.
Thank you for all this help, for all you do to help these animals, like Ranna and her puppies, to have a chance in this world.
Dear Supporters and Friends,
Although the issue of abandoned dogs in Romania is well known, I would like to tell you about the situation that does not make its way into the media, abandoned kittens.
With the cost of spay/neuter being prohibitive for most Romanian citizens, they are regularly faced with the choice of whether to kill the offspring of their cats, or abandon them. With the population of dogs decreasing in Romania, there are more cats than ever seen living on the roads and public places. These kittens and cats are subject to disease, fighting, starvation.
Romania Animal Rescue gives people the means to stop this cycle....spay/neuter with highly skilled veterinary teams that travel throughout the country to provide help. Prevention is the key to end the suffering.
I would like to share this with you, sent from Anca in Craiova,
"Why RAR spaying and neutering campaigns are so important?Being involved in rescuing in Romania it is a hard task and all rescuers know how many things they sacrifice in order to help an enormous number of animals – and sometimes at the end of the day you might realize that you were not good enough to help enough animals.From my point of view, RAR ‘s involvement in what concerns spaying and neutering campaigns was a major step to a new era, to a better life for animals and to a better educated population when it comes to stray dogs and cats.It is overwhelming to know that people thousands of miles away are concerned and actively devoted to help Romania’s strays cause.Since RAR started to collaborate with different Romanian NGOs and private persons a big number of spaying and neutering places were used for dogs and cats which used to deliver annually unwanted pups or kittens. These sustained efforts of donating money, mobilizing teams of professional vets, implementing the idea that IT IS NORMAL TO spay your cat, your dog led to a lower number of animals on streets.I would like to thank all RAR donors and great people involved in this major project! Together we can change lives, we can stop the number of dogs or cats on streets, injured, hurt, thirsty, hungry, ill and so on. Attaching here also a few pictures of latest animals spayed / neutered with RAR ‘s help !With your support, we can continue to provide help so that there will be fewer abandoned or killed kittens. "
Thank you with all our hearts for your contribution to RAR's spay/neuter program for cats!
