Greetings Everyone!

I have wonderful news!  The Center of Hope is open!   We have been providing veterinary care, spay and neuter, and held  2 education seminars thusfar!

The Center of Hope is now able to help with our projects for education for the public, rescuers, children, and veterinarians.  The first seminar was held mid-February.  Our friends from Hobo Dogs Finland flew in animal behaviorists to train caregivers how to handle and interact with the animals.   The second seminar was held in mid-March, Equine Veterinarian Training day.   Equine vet specialists instructed vets and vet students during this weekend event, bringing together the best of the best in Romania to train more vets.  More seminars are planned in April with animal behaviorists, a dental seminar for veterinarians, and in May a bone specialist seminar.  We are currently coordinating flights and times for animal eye specialists to come to Romania to train vets on cataract surgeries and more at the seminar Center.

The Center of Hope also is the location for the Veterinary Training Camp.  Romania Animal Rescue provides scholarships for Romanian and Bulgarian vets to attend this intense course to learn higher surgical skill levels with spay and neuter techniques in particular.  

And, we are reaching the children!  With more printed books thanks to your support.   We also have printed our first Romania Animal Rescue coloring books and have sent them over with markers for the children in the village where Center of Hope is located.  Also, special RAR logo hats with the pawprint to signify change is happening for the animals in Romania!  

We are thrilled to welcome Global Giving representative Skye who plans to visit us on location in Romania on March 24!

I hope you will continue to support our education project.  We reach out to children, vets, techs, rescuers, locals....everyone is welcome and invited to learn about animal welfare with our projects that rely on YOUR support to continue.  I hope you will help us again!

Thank you!

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!

Ladies and Gentleman, here is the Center for Hope inside!

This walk through will show you this incredible new building for the animals in Romania. Thousands of animals will receive treatment here, thousands will be spayed and neutered, and millions will be saved from suffering in the years and decades to come.

 

The second floor will house  the Education/Seminar Center.   This Education Center will seat approximately 100 people and will bring communities together to learn about animal husbandry and welfare.  

We need YOUR SUPPORT to be able to purchase the supplies needed for the Education Center at the Center of Hope.  We need funding for pro-active toys, more education books, pencils, crayons, coloring books, toy animals, projector for movies, leashes, collars, harnesses.  All that will bring together the youth from communities and engage them in learning how to better treat animals.  We also are seeking YOUR INPUT AND ADVICE on creative interactive hands-on activities for children and adults so that we can hold educational seminars and events at this massive Center near Bucharest.  

Please support us with a donation and with your comments!  Thank you very much!

Dear Romania Animal Rescue Supporters and Friends,

Our education program is helping in so many areas of Romania!  Spay campaigns include the handing out of the educational booklets so that locals can understand what true animal welfare is and how to go about practicing it in their homes and communities.  RAR has worked in over 50 cities, towns and villages in Romania and helped approximately  40 local charities and organizations.  We share and distribute educational books to numerous communities and charities who hold education days at schools or in their shelters.   To date Romania Animal Rescue and our sister charity Animal Spay Neuter International have spayed and neutered over 48,400 animals....this is education at its core and accompanied with the education books teaches animal welfare to thousands!

Recently I was in Romania as a volunteer for a number of spayathons.  I saw young and old reading the booklets, sharing them with their friends and others waiting for animals that were being spayed/neutered.   My friend and fellow USA volunteer Ingrid and I were able to hand the booklets out to villagers and invite them to bring their animals in for free spay neuter campaigns as well.

The best news is the new Center of HOPE, still under construction, will house our Education and Seminar Center on the second floor as well as providing a few rooms for visiting vets and volunteers.    Educational films will be shown to children and adults during the many seminars we intend to hold at the Center, and plans include having fun events for locals and children from schools to come and interact with the animals, learn about animal welfare, and see what our vet team and vet techs jobs entail, with the hopes that some of these children will take up the field of animal welfare as a career in the future.  We also will holding vet training seminars at the Center of Hope with our vet team training other vets on keyhole incision methods and other surgical procedures, as well as inviting international experts to come and train at this Center near Bucharest.

We want to encourage the human bond with animals, something I believe we are born with, but often gets thwarted along the way.   Teach them when they are young that they are on the right path, to follow their passion and that RAR will be there to help. Encourage them when they need help, and further the education of our colleagues.  This is our goal.

I hope you will support us with our new Center of Hope by donating to continued construction for the Center of HOPE.   We need to purchase heating, air, equipment for our veterinary work (tables, lamps, instruments, xray, iso machines, monitoring equipment,  autoclaves, etc)  as well as interactive materials for the education room.

Thank you in advance for your help, and I wish you the very best!   Please enjoy the photos and the video of our spaymobile HOPE reaching very rural communities this past year.

Greetings Friends!

I would like to share the most recent news from our Education campaign.  500 education books have been sent to Brazov to be used in special ed programs.  200 education books will be making their way to Sighetu as we continue our help for this community,

The new Center near Bucharest is still under construction, and we need donations to continue.   This Center will be the headquarters for spay/neuter in the Bucharest region, Homeless Animals Hospital, Education Center, Veterinary Training Camp, and home base for the HOPE mobile clinic.

Our plan is to have an interactive education quarter in the Center for seminars, films, children education, and community education days.  We plan to invite schools to bring students on field trips to the Center.

We are asking for donations of $25 to help us continue with the building of this Center.  

Please help us if you can, and thank you for being a part of this investment in the future for animals of Romania!
