Veterinary care, compassion, and food all need providing to insure the best outcomes for the animals we treat.
We have hundreds of patients that come to our Homeless Animals Hospital Program located in Bucharest area and in Craiova. At the Center of Hope, Bucharest and Family Vet clinic, Craiova, our team of vets and techs provide the excellent veterinary services for the most needy animals, but these animals all need food to insure a healthy recovery.
Some animals stay with us for long periods of time due to serious injuries. High quality nutrition brings them back from malnutrition as well as healing their broken little bodies.
Some recent examples are Chocolate, Mia, and Mollie and Cleo.
Chocolate was brought to us with a diaphragmatic hernia and a leg broken in two places. Immediate surgery was needed to save him from suffocating from the hernia as his organs were pressing on his lungs. This little sweetheart received all his treatments thanks to our donors, and is now happy, eating, and regaining his strength.
Please see his videos here:
Mia was a feral cat living on the streets. She was hit by a car and brought into our Homeless Animals Hospital Program for free treatment, thanks to our donors. She too had to have immediate live saving surgery from a diaphragmatic hernia that was pressing on her lungs. She also had to have one leg amputated and another needed surgery for a bad break. She is now resting comfortably and eating wonderful nourishing food, a far cry from what she lived on during her time on the streets:
Meet Mollie and Cleo. Rescued as abandoned infant kittens off the streets by our vet tech Anda. These two little ones were bottle fed at our Center of Hope in Bucharest until they were strong enough to eat on their own. Now look at these little ones eat! :
I hope you will continue to support our wonderful work for the Romanian animals with support for their food. Please share and invite your friends and colleagues if you can. Thank you. The animals in Romania say THANK YOU!
Hello Dear Friends,
Romania Animal Rescue is tasked with supplying food for the patients of our Homeless Animals Hospital project at the Center of Hope near Bucharest. We also try to help Happy Paws, the shelter in Moreni, that has about 150 animals.
The Center of Hope treats hundreds of animals, and will continue to treat thousands more. Most if not all of these animals have lived in poverty, and need special nutrient rich food to prosper and heal from their injuries or diseases. Many animals we treat have been hit by cars and have broken legs, hips, or backs. Many have skin diseases, some have parvo. Since they often remain with us for a long duration, we need to provide not only the veterinary care but the room and food for them as well. Little Thelma is a current patient at the Center of Hope. She was kicked onto the street (literally) because the family who owned her mother did not want any pups. The kick broke her pelvis. Ylva brought her to the Center where she is recovering nicely. She will go to a home in Sweden, and her mother has now been spayed.
Happy Paws shelter is run by Anda, who also is a veterinary technician for Romania Animal Rescue. The city of Moreni "offered" Anda to take over the city shelter, the other option being that the city would destroy the dogs. So Anda took over the shelter and provides the best care possible for these dogs. Running the shelter means caring for all these animals, including providing treatments and food for those recovering from illness. One such pup was Bilbo, who had parvo and was near death when Anda found him. Nursed back to health, he survived and is now living at the shelter waiting for adoption.
I hope you will join us in our venture to provide nutritious food for those who need it so desperately. Together we can do so much!
Thank you for your time and thank you for your help!
Dear Friends and Supporters,
The Center of Hope has now opened its doors for complete vet care services near Bucharest. We provide the community animals and animals from miles away premium veterinary care with free or subsidized treatment as Romania Animal Rescue donations allow. Along with care for our patients, many of whom stay at the Center for a lengthy recovery period, we need to make sure these dogs, cats, puppies and kittens receive the nourishment they require in order to become healthy and regain strength.
Romania Animal Rescue's Homeless Animals Hospital program runs now in 2 locations, Craiova at Family Vet and Center of Hope,and treats over 1000 animals a year, and this will be greatly increasing with the opening and help needed for Center of Hope animals.
Donations for the high quality and special needs diet food are needed, if you can please help us. Formula for puppies and kittens. We need to be able to nurture and sustain our patients as best we can, and this requires funding, as always.
Thank you for reading this plea. Thank you for continuing to help Romania Animal Rescue in our work to provide help and care for thousands and thousands in Romania.
The entire RAR Dream Team wishes you and yours a lovely Spring!
Dear Romania Animal Rescue Friends and Supporters,
Winter brings with it many challenges, especially if you are a homeless animal. We have many partners that we help with our programs of spay/neuter, vet care, and education, and we also help Happy Dogs in Moreni with food, thanks to YOUR SUPPORT. Anda has written this article to let you know how much your help is needed:
"If you are a stray dog in Romania, winter is far from being wonderland; winter usually means there is even less food than before and there is no dry, warm place to sleep for the next 3 months or so. While we know we can’t rescue all dogs and get them to a warm place, at least until Spring, we can help them, by feeding them, so they have enough energy to go through the winter. But to do so, we need even more food than we usually do to feed almost 200 dogs, so here we are asking for your help yet again.
This hasn’t been an unusual winter for this part of the world; we may experience temperatures down to minus 30 degrees Celsius, which for a lot of stray animals and homeless people means death. Getting food at least once a day may very well make the difference between life and death, so our mission becomes even more important than ever before. Simple tasks such as walking to the market, driving to the next town, taking one’s kids to school become painful moments for those who can’t witness animals suffering and do nothing, because dogs are abandoned everywhere – local parks, schools and market places, the woods in between towns, fields – and seeing them fight for their existence day after day may be very a traumatic experience.
A few days after New Year’s Eve, we found little Igor, a puppy who was dumped as garbage at the shelter’s gate. He was just a bag of bones, too weak to stand or move…he did nothing except blink and moan. Igor had absolutely no muscle on him and he got that way because a thing so basic as food was denied repeatedly with the only intention of killing him slowly. We don’t know much about his past, but we do know that Igor loves his food and that he will never go hungry again.
At Happy Dogs Moreni there’s a saying: “never refuse food”, because all our dogs suffered from hunger in their past, so our first promise to them was they would never go to bed on an empty stomach again. So far, we managed to keep our word and this is possible only because of people’s kindness and generosity. Thank you for helping us keep our promise!"
Thank you Anda for this description of life for the animals of Romania during winter. Please help us if you can, and join our Facebook page (link below).
We wish you and your family a Happy New Year and all the very best.

Dear Romania Animal Rescue Supporters,
Thank you again for all your help for our work to stop the needless suffering of animals in Romania. This month many RAR volunteers helped in remote villages that otherwise have no help. Our mobile vet clinic HOPE reached 5 different villages, providing vet care and free spay and neuter, as well as donations for food, collars, leashes and deparasite products. The local citizens were so happy to great us and so very thankful. Please see the photos that will introduce you to what village life if like for animals and people.
On our second morning while meeting at Family Vet clinic, a plastic bag of infant puppies was spotted under a bush outside the clinic. These puppies were starving and barely able to suck from a bottle. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=od36WFkdl9g&feature=youtu.be Thank goodness through our vast network of friends we were able to find a foster care provider in Romania to pay to take them and care for them until they are ready for adoption.
With your support, we can provide even more funds for food for Romanian animals. Please help us in our unending endeavor to help the animals.
