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!

Dear Romania Animal Rescue Education Program Supporters,

Happy New Year to you!  2015 was an extremely productive year, our best yet, thanks to support from wonderful donors who understand the importance of spay and neuter, animal welfare education,  and vet care!  More and more communities are understanding how to humanely treat their fellow beings, whether owned or community animals.

 Thanks to projects like Romania Animal Rescue's education booklets, the offer of free vet care for homeless animals and those from impoverished guardians, free spay and neuter services, and educating young vets with our sponsorships for Romanian vets to attend the Veterinary Training Camp, the future looks brighter than ever.   Romania Animal Rescue spayed and neutered almost 10,000 animals in 2015, bringing our charity grand total to over 43,000 spays and neuters.  Each one of these surgeries is granted to a person who has been educated on animal welfare and the need to stop needless suffering. Each guardian or charity manager who uses our services spreads the word to others in his or her community.  Our education books that you help support have helped to make a huge impact on communities and in schools. Charities have begun education campaigns using the RAR books which we are happy to give to help thanks to the support we get from our donors.  We thank you for this help for the animals. 

Now for some SUPER news: the construction of our new Romania Animal Rescue Spay/Neuter Center, Homeless Animals Hospital, Education Center, and Veterinary Training Camp Headquarters, along with the launching point for HOPE, our mobile spay clinic, has commenced.  The Center  location is being built just outside of Bucharest and will serve communities in a 100 km radius.   This state of the art center  will provide free spays and neuters and vet care for those who cannot afford to pay and homeless animals, subsidized spay and neuters and vet care, and vet services for hire to help us raise funds for more work and to pay salaries for vets and techs.  

With the building of this Center, we will have an Education Headquarters as well.   A place for schools to send their students on field trips to learn about veterinary care, and to learn about how to become a vet in the future.   A place to have gatherings for special events or day trips to the Center.  A place where we can hold our own educational seminars.

We are asking for help to build the Center at the cost of $20 per virtual brick.  Please help us spread the word and ask your friends to invest in the future for Romanian animals to stop the suffering.   If all goes to plan, and if we receive the required funds, we hope to have the ribbon cutting ceremony for this new Center in mid October, 2016.

For us, this is a Dream in the making.  For the Romanian animals, it is a Dream come true.  Please help us invest in the future, a future of kindness and compassion.   Thank you for your time and for reading our latest update.  I wish you a lovely 2016!  * Please enjoy the HOPE video, and thank you to Sir Paul McCartney and MPL for allowing us the use of the song "Hope of Deliverance" to use as our mobile clinic's theme song.  Also please see how a spayathon is done in our video number 2.

Dear Supporters and Friends,

Romania Animal Rescue has been asked to reach even more locations in Romania with educational materials.  For years we have been using a copyrighted edition of the education booklet that we have the privilege of printing.   We have now decided that it is time for us to create our own educational books, with more information and detail than before.   

Lelia Creanga, our Northern Romania Program Coordinator, English translator and former school teacher will be designing the book.  The costs for printing, once designed, will be approximately $1.40 per full color book.   

Thanks to you, it's working!   Please help us to set up this new book so we can spread animal welfare throughout the coun try!  Thank you very much!

Dear Friends of Romanian Animals,

Yes, it is all about education!    We at RAR work every day to bring about change in communities.  Each time an animal is spayed or neutered, enters the Homeless Animals Hospital, or a vet attends the Veterinary Training Camp, we have achieved a landmark goal of educating the public.   And they respond with telling their friends about our work, tell them about the free help we provide, the free literature for schools and community events.

In June, RAR attended Ham Ham (Bark Bark) Festival in Bucharest to hand out education booklets to attendees.  Our veterinarian, Dr. Aurelian Stefan (Dr. A) was invited as a guest to the United States Embassy Fourth of July Event.  At this event, he met Romanian  President Ioannis as well as other dignitaries, and was able to speak briefly with them about the need for animal welfare changes  in Romania.

Our new mobile clinic, HOPE, has done 2 missions in remote locations now, and is a valuable leader in education as well.   An animal ambulance and spay clinic for Romania!   HOPE and Dr. A also held an event outside the American Corner (of the USA Embassy, Craiova) to educate local children on the need for animal welfare and spay/neuter.

Thanks to your donations and support, we are able to teach the children and others on humane treatment of animals, and perhaps there will be some future vets in the making as well !

Thank you for donating to help our education program and our booklets.

Sincerely,

Nancy Janes
