Greetings Friends and Happy New Year!

2022 was an extremely busy year for Romania Animal Rescue.

9487 dogs and cats were sterilized, the new Center of Hope Extension was completed, with a new suite specifically set up for even more spays and neuters.

RAR has a new contract with Ilfov County whereby we provide spays and neuters (funded by generous donations at $25 per spay/neuter) in villages surrounding Bucharest city. These are areas where animals are often abandoned, and the people are extremely impoverished. We need to keep the animals off the roads and get them into homes.

Working with our friends from Ilfov County is a first of its kind project in Romania. These young people go into the communities, using our Spay Shuttle as well as their county van to bring the animals to our Center of Hope.

In October we had the Grand Opening of the New Extension, and what did we do to celebrate? Held two massive Spayathons, one in October with RAR and Animal Spay Neuter International volunteers attending, and the 24 Hour Spayathon that was reported in Romanian national media, thereby drawing more attention to the vital need for spays/neuters in order to stop the abandonment of puppies and kittens that cannot be provided for.

YouTube videos will give you a glimpse into the work done. First video is from the Grand Opening, second is narrated by Dr. Aurelian Stefan at the 24 Hour Spayathon.  Please see Links below.

Thank you so much for all you do and have done to help these animals!

Greetings Friends,

As this summer ends, we have more work to report being done with your help for the dogs of Romania.  Our totals for spay/neuter of animals  (dogs and cats) is now over 104,423 - that number represents millions who never were born to suffer, thanks to your support

Veterinary Directory Dr. Aurelian Stefan and the team of vets and techs are now presented in a 12 episode hour long TV reality program "Veterinarians in Action" on national TV.  It is a page of history for the animals of Romania!  And we now have a running advertisement in the Bucharest subway inviting the public to help homeless animals.

Center of Hope Spay/Neuter Extension is near completion, making it the largest spay/neuter center in Romania.  Opening celebration will be on October 17.  This huge expansion will allow RAR to spay/neuter even more animals, as many as 1000 per month in this location alone. Your continued support can make this goal possible.  Both the original Center of Hope and the extension are built with "green" technology. Our energy bill for the Center of Hope in July was an amazing $8.  Saving more money to help the animals!

We secured an agreement with Ilfov County (Bucharest vicinity) to spay/neuter animals ..... a first of it's kind.  Their volunteers actively reach the villages and bring dogs to the Center of Help for treatment and surgery using the Spay Shuttle .  After awakening from anesthesia and being vet checked, the dogs are returned to their guardians in the evening

All this work and so much more to come is possible thanks to your donations.

We are deeply grateful for your continued help.

Greetings Friends,

Romania Animal Rescue has been extremely busy with our Spayathons.  At a recent campaign, the local police helped by going door to door explaining to the villagers that the law requires spay/neuter for mixed breed dogs, with a hefty fine for non-compliance.  This is the first time in Romania that police have become involved to help with a Spayathon, and we hope it's the first of many such actions.

We are celebrating 101,544 spays and neuters as of April 30!

When you consider that by spaying one you can potentially save 100 pups from ever being born, this is a massive achievement....that could not have been done without our loyal donors.

WE THANK YOU! 

RAR does campaigns at Center of Hope (Bucharest area) , Family Vet (Craiova area), as well as running mobile campaigns to reach rural villages that have no means of help for their animals. We also run the Spay Shuttle that transports animals from small villages to the Center of Hope for spay/neuter and veterinary care.

Your ongoing support allows us to change the way Romanian animals live. Please continue to help. Together we can work miracles!

Greetings Animal Lovers!

I hope 2022 has been a good year for you thus far.  The beginning of more work for our Romania Animal Rescue team.  We plan to have the Spay Neuter Extension at the Center of Hope open in June.

We've been organizing spays and neuters at the Center of Hope near Bucharest, Family Vet in Craiova, and doing mobile campaigns using the Spay Shuttle and traveling to perform MASH style spayathons in villages and towns.

We are fortunate to have a visitor and volunteer from the USA who is a registerd veterinary technician.  Forrest has written a blog about his spayathon adventure:

It is always a delight to have gifted volunteers and for them to see our work.

We hope you will continue to support us in this mighty endeavor.  We are currently approaching 100,000 spays and neuters of dogs and cats since our charity began.  Your financial support and sharing our work with friends will help us reach even more animals.  Thank You!

Greetings Friends and Supporters!

With the new extension of the Center of Hope being built near Bucharest we are planning some big spay/neuter goals.  We hope to double our monthly spay/neuter numbers from 500 dogs and cats a month at this location to 1000 per month. 

For this ambitious goal we need your support.  While still running our mobile spayathons (as weather permits) and our commitment to Family Vet in Craiova for 100 spays and neuters a month, this is an extraordinarily ambitious goal.  As Dr. A says "If your goals don't scare you, you're not thinking big enough!".

The dogs need our help, and we are in the position to help them even more......the only drawback is lack of funds. 

You can help the dogs by providing spay and neuter for only $25 per dog.  Saving potentially hundreds of puppies from ever being born into a world that cannot or will not provide for them.

Our work helps those who care the most about the animals but are not in a financial position to pay the cost of spay and neuter. 

**Those who can afford to pay for this surgery are not included in our program that is reserved for impoverished guardians and rescuers.  Those who can afford to pay for surgery are required to do so.

We look forward to our partnership with you in this endeavor!  Thank you for your care and compassion for the dogs in Romania.
