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

The work in Bucov is going on and on

Especially in the Shelter Bucov, where about 3,000 to 3,500 dogs live, the food bills are immense. Each month we have to buy food (approx. 30,000 kg) worth about $25,000. Twice a week the food company brings food to Bucov.

Additionally about 50 new kennels were built in the last half year. All new kennels and also some of the older ones were layed out with tiles. The reason therefor is that with the tiles the kennels can be cleaned more easily.

Since the volunteers could not travel to Bucov in spring because of the COVID19 pandemic, the roofs were also built by the local workers.

All this must continue every month and that is why we need you!

Please continue to support us in this important project

Warmly and stay healthy

Whats going on with public castration events?

Regular public castration days are an important part of our daily work on site.

Due to the winter and then the COVID19 pandemic, we were not able to castrate owner dogs as originally planned.

Now that the restrictions due to COVID19 are slowly being relaxed in Romania as well, we can get back into planning.

During this time, of course, the dogs continued to be neutered in the shelters and at the request of dog owners, their dogs were neutered in veterinary clinics - but even that comparatively little.

This time was unfortunately a bitter setback for us - but our animal welfare activists are working on quickly carrying out castration days here again.

Even if we cannot give not so positive news due to the situation, please stay at our side, so that we can pick up speed again

Warmly and stay healthy

Bettina
