Homeless Animals Hospital Project Saves Thousands

Waffy recovered from eating rat poison

Imagine being a homeless animal, living on your own in Romania.   Struggling to get by as best you can.  As fate would have it, one day you are hurt, hit by a car, eat rat poison by accident, or contract parvo.  Until our Homeless Animals Hospital project was created, this was generally a death sentence for thousands of animals.  But now, thanks to YOUR SUPPORT homeless animals and those cared for by impoverished people have help.  Excellent vet care at the highest standards available by the most qualified veterinary team in Romania.  

We often have Good Samaritans who find injured animals and bring them to the clinic, or an injured orphaned kitty is brought into a rural spay campaign, or a dog with a massive mammory tumor needs surgery at a campaign, an amputation is needed, the list goes on.  Thanks to our donors, Romania Animal Rescue has been able to provide life-saving and pain saving help for these animals for 3 years.   Hundreds of animals are brought to HAH project every year. These animals, once recovered, are either returned to their care giver or put into foster care where our massive outreach program of local adoption coordinators goes into action to place these animals primarily in homes in the UK or Germany.

But we can only continue to offer this project with funds from donations.   I hope you will join me in continuing to support and fund the Homeless Animals Hospital Project so that we can expand our program even further.  The animals need us, and we need your support to help them.

Thank you so much and Happy New Year to you!

Spaying is the Solution for the Spring Litters

Dear Romania Animal Rescue Friends,

Happy Holidays to you!  Thank you for supporting our projects to spay and neuter cats.  I am happy to announce that Romania Animal Rescue is nearing 10,000 spays and neuters (dogs and cats)  for the year of 2016, and over 53,000 in total since we began our major spay campaigns primarily in 2009.  

In October, RAR ran simultaneous campaigns at Family Vet in Craiova and in rural villages with our mobile ambulance, HOPE.  It was an amazing and extremely successful week of 475 spays and neuters, with the total for the month of October well over 1000 spays and neuters.   Volunteers from Europe, Canada and the USA came to help in the month of October and it was lovely to meet our friends in person.

The Center of Hope, in Ilfov County near Bucharest, had its pre-opening celebration on October 16, also welcoming visitors from around the globe to see the great strides being made by Romania Animal Rescue and our sister charities to change the face of animal welfare in Romania with this immense ground-breaking Center.

Please take a look at our NEW website that includes the work of Romania Animal Rescue and our sister UK Charity Animal Spay and Neuter International.

Spring is just around the corner, and this means that we are in a rush to spay as many cats as possible.  Our mobile campaigns have slowed down due to the cold weather and dangerous road conditions of Romanian winter, but the clinics in Craiova, Iasi, Moreni, Bucharest, and Vatra Dornei have been carrying on spay and neuter projects for the animals of impoverished people who could otherwise not afford this service.  The Center of Hope is almost ready to receive patients, and we need YOUR SUPPORT so that we can begin to address the issue of abandoned cats and kittens surrounding Bucharest.

Thank you for reaching out to continue to help the cats in Romania.  I am often asked why a citizen of the USA chooses to help Romanian animals.  I understand the great need in the USA.   The issue is Romania is immense, the kitties cannot help where they were born.   There is little if any help for the cats of Romania, only a handful of shelters (2 that I am aware of).  We feel it in our hearts to help these animals, and with your assistance, we can do just that.

Thank you and all the best for 2017!

Greetings and Happy Holidays to you!

We would like to thank you for supporting our education program in Romania!  We have been able to reach out to more communities and rural areas with our booklets, and friends have donated toys, gifts and coloring books for children.  The Center of Hope Education/Seminar room had its first event during the pre-opening of the Center of Hope near Bucharest, Romania.  Visitors from Europe, Canada and the USA attended this event, and many of them also volunteered at the spayathon in October that held simultaneous campaigns in the city of Craiova at Family Vet clinic as well as in rural villages with HOPE mobile unit.

We have a NEW website now!   www.romaniaanimalrescue.org that includes our UK registered charity, Animal Spay and Neuter International.

2017 is going to be a huge year for us.  The new Center of Hope near Bucharest will begin receiving its first patients.  Locals will attend animal welfare seminars, guest speakers will be doing presentations at Center of Hope.  International supporters, vets, nurses and volunteers will unite to use their skills to best help the animals in Romania and to best teach the citizens about animal welfare.

We would like to ask you for your continued support for the printing of our education books.  Only $1.39 per 19 page full color book is needed.  Together we can do so much!

Thank you and Happy Holidays and a Wonderful 2017!
