The Spay/Neuter and vet care for cats in Romania

These past few months our program to help the cats of Romania has really taken off.  In the two cities of Bucharest and Iasi (Romania's second largest city) people are continually asking for our help.  In the city of Craiova we recently had our large Spayathon that included spay/neuter for a total of 850 cats and dogs.  One mother cat was brought in to be checked by our vets, and was found to have a dead kitten inside her.  She needed emergency spaying and recovered to return back to her 2 kittens.

Our work in Iasi is desperately needed, as is stated here by our project coordinator in Northern Romania, Lelia Creanga.  We have been able to provide free spay/neuter for 72 cats in Iasi thusfar, and hope that with your support we can do even more:

"Thanks to the generous RAR support, we were able to start the cats spay project in Iasi today. In the past I was overwhelmed by the number of appeals I received from different rescuers and careers due to the huge number of stray cats in this city. The situation is quite horrible especially during the winter months when they have no place to hide and warm up, no food, at the mercy of harsh weather conditions. There is no cat shelter in Iasi, this is why people are constantly facing difficulties when trying to rescue as many as possible. Every year thousands of kittens are born and die on the streets due to horrid painful diseases, starvation or poisoning. In Iasi, there isn't any low cost cats spay/neuter program. Therefore, people here do not always do the right thing because they have no money. The number of stray cats increases rapidly, and we are confronted daily with more and more cases of neglect, abandonment, severely injured cats. Personally I have witnessed during the past month many cases of cats with mammary tumors, some very serious cases, only because the cats hadn't been spayed while still young. I am very grateful for the support of Romania Animal Rescue, but I understand their support is dependent upon donations from the public. I hope you can help the cats of my city, Iasi, Romania by donating to Romania Animal Rescue and stating "For Iasi Cats". All my love to you, guys, wherever you are! Spay/neuter--no more suffering!"

Lelia, Iasi, Romania

Thank you for your support for this project to help the cats.  We are very grateful for your help.
