Thelma at Center of Hope
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!
