Preparing for coming winter

The main tasks for winter preparation are always the construction of roofs all year round and the making of huts on site for the dogs. Especially the construction of roofs is usually advanced 4 to 5 times a year by volunteers. Unfortunately due to the pandemic only one construction team could travel to Romania. But they worked really well and built about 140 running meters of roof in Campina.

In Bucov our animal welfarist Aniela built many new kennels together with the local workers and also immediately roofs. Under her supervision several additional water tanks were installed on the ever growing area.

In addition again regularly huts for the dogs were delivered.

From the end of October on, depending on the temperatures, a lot of straw is needed to lay out the huts.

We all hope that next year the shelters in Bucov in particular will be really well-run again, so that many kennels will get their roofs.

Thank you for every single donation - it is needed even more right now.

Defying the pandemic to help the puppies

Since the last project report, despite the COVID 19 pandemic, a larger group of volunteers has actually been able to travel to our shelter. It was built roofs like crazy at 30 degrees in the shade. The volunteers have managed 140 running meters of roof.

Besides that the registration of the puppies was very important. Every summer Bucov is flooded with hundreds of puppies. So the registration of all vaccinated and old enough puppies is very important. Only then they can be seen by potential adopters in Germany and have the chance to leave Romania.

Puppies, which are often brought very young and without mother to a shelter with nearly 3500 dogs, have to be very well cared for. They need good food, must be vaccinated and dewormed. And if they survive all this, with a lot of luck they can start their journey into a better future.

In order to cover all these costs, we are dependent on each and every donor.

Many thanks to every single one

 

Warmly

Bettina & team of ProDogRomania e.V.

LIVING WITH COVID-19

When we started the COVID-19 project, none of us knew what the pandemic and its effects would be like.

First we started to build up a stock of urgently needed supplies of food, vaccines, syringes, gloves and disinfectants

As we did not know how long the borders would remain closed and therefore no volunteers could fly to Romania, especially in Bucov our animal welfare activists started to build roofs together with the city workers.

After 6 long weeks we could finally dare to transport dogs to Germany again. Also these transports in the times of the pandemic runs differently. The drivers now need freight papers and at the transfer points we pay very close attention to the compliance with the respective hygiene regulations.

Two weeks ago, the first volunteers flew to Romania, especially to register dogs for our gallery so that people can find them and see them. At the end of the month a larger group will fly to Campina and Bucov to build roofs and also te register the dogs fort he gallery. Since the number of cases in Romania is increasing again, we can use a big thumbs down – perhaps also as a donation? Not that COVID-19 will put a damper on our plans again.

We are preparing ourselves for a completely different work in the near future, as the pandemic will certainly accompany us for a long time to come.

With this in mind, everyone stays healthy and please be at our side to support all the dogs in our 4 shelters.

 

warmly Bettina
