Dear Romania Animal Rescue Supporters,
I hope this summer finds you well. Things are progressing, with your help, at an astonishing rate in Romania with our campaigns for education, spay/neuter, Homeless Animal Hospital, and vet training programs.
I am thrilled to tell you that we now have circulated 14,200 education books throughout Romania, to schools in Buhusi, Vatra Dornei, Craiova, Botosani, Iasi, as well as in public events such as plays and social gatherings. In addition, our vets bring books to many of our spayathon events so that they can educate the children and adults as well on the importance of spay/neuter as well as the humane treatment of animals.
I hope this pleases you as much as it does me! Thank you for your continued support for RAR.
With Deepest Thanks,
Dear RAR Supporters and Friends,
I hope you are sitting down.....we have just printed and are distributing 1200 new education books for Romanian schools and community events!
We are planning to bring 500 books to Vatra Dornei to accompany our spayathon in May so that Roxana Pasat may continue her local education program for children, and sending 200 books to Anda Popescu in Moreni so that she may start her new program. The rest of the books will accompany the RAR Dream Team as we travel around Romania providing spayathons in Tecuci, Peasant Villages of Bucharest, Comanesti, Iasi, Suplac, Bistrita, Targoviste, Gherla and Reghin, so the they can be handed out to the local citizens.
Children and adults alike love these fun books that teach animal welfare, kindness and compassion. Education has always been a cornerstone for RAR, from the early days of our charity in 2003 when we produced coloring books thanks to children from Texas who designed them, to today when we have our lovely 20 page full color booklets. To date, 14,200 booklets have been printed thanks to donations from yourselves and others.
So hip hip hooray! And away we go with education, spay/neuter, veterinary care, and veterinary training in Romania!
Wishing you all a lovely Spring,
Romania Animal Rescue
A festive time was had by students in communities during their animal welfare education day !
In Buhusi, the children learned about animal welfare and were given balloons, toys and prizes during contests, along with our vital educational books!
In Sighetu, the children enjoyed a day films and were taught how to understand dog's signals as well as how to humanely walk a dog on a leash.
In Radauti, young people from a home that helps handicapped children learned about caring for the dogs that are in their local area. Most of these dogs were abandoned.....as were most of these handicapped children.
Hand in hand, in community after community, Romania Animal Rescue is teaching the young all that we have in common with our fellow beings. How with just a bit of understanding and compassion we can work together to make this world a better place for everyone. Thank you for your donations to help us educate in Romania!
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! Thank you Nancy Janes! ♥ Educational booklets about animal welfare and spay/neuter distributed by RAR throughout Romania. Yes! We need to do more and more spays/neuters, 20 page full color books. 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!
Thanks to the wonderful support from donors like you, we have now distributed 11,500 animal welfare books throughout Romania, and have just ordered 1500 more to be printed. The message of humane treatment of animals will reach both children and adults via schools, plays, community events such as fairs and festivals. The more people that we can educate, the less suffering of animals.....a win win for everyone!
The latest cities and towns that received our help are Cernavoda, Tecuci, Buhusi, and soon to be Craiova and Radauti.
It is our belief that education and spay/neuter are the most important ways to stop animal abuse and neglect. Please join us in our campaigns of help for animals in Romania. Thank you my dear friends!
