I am Swiss and live and work in Romania. I volunteer at a private dog shelter and am trying to raise money for the daily expenses of a shelter, that needs our help desperately!
WHY I decided to collect money!?.. for several reasons:)
Almost daily, there are new arrivals of dogs that need food, shelter, treatment, care, love and promotion in order to be seen and finally driven to the new and safe home. It is always heartbreaking, if there is thrown a puppy, a sick dog or a kitten over the clinic or shelter fence..as if they were goods..
NO ANIMAL WILL BE PUT BACK ON THE STREET that arrived like that in the clinic/shelter. It is obviously the right thing to take care of that souls, but on the other hand it is causing a lot of trouble.. There is OF COURSE not endless room, money or medicine available...
AT THE MOMENT we are collecting for the following:
For the daily spends for food, cleaning, medicine and treatments, etc.
BUT MORE IMPORTANT: Some parts of the shelter need to be rebuild as they have been destroyed by time. We desperately want to change the conditions for the dogs that are living in the shelter for weeks, months..sometimes even for years.. as adoption is still not something people like to fancy too much:(
Although..we can highly recommend to adopt.. These animals are sooo grateful and a pure gift in our life! A lost soul that becomes your family!
Now... let me tell you a bit more about what I am talking about:)
Dog Rescue Romania, a NPO dedicated for the animal’s welfare in Romania.
Romania is a country where dogs still face horrendous abuse. In 2013 euthanasia law was passed, but no other help like spay, adoption or educational campaigns were implemented. Daily hundreds of dogs are euthanized in public shelters. Our furry friends are abused, mistreated, killed and too often we can just do:
DRR was started in 2012 by Dr. Rudi and Garofita Hofmann, two veterinarians with a large experience and the power to fight a difficult system as well as giving these sentient souls a second chance. Several employees, doctors, veterinary technicians, drivers and volunteers are dedicated to help.
Accomplishment since 2012:
Over a thousand dogs have found forever homes and are living their dream.
With over 7000 animals neutered in our campaigns we prevented animals being born or abandoned on the streets.
In our shelters we care for hundreds of stray dogs and cats
Dog Rescue Clinic in Bucharest takes care of the most urgent cases of abuse, injury and other medical issues.
The Dog Rescue Sanctuary offer homes for old dogs or traumatized dogs.
To be able to continue saving dogs and cats we need YOUR support to offer them a chance to a new life
If you are a friend of animals..this is a great way giving these animals some more life quality, hope, medical treatments and of course..the chance to finally be adopted and start the life each of this pure souls deserves!
Me, Dog Rescue Romania and the shelter souls are more than thankful for every tiny donation. Animals are often forgotten..In our society everything depends on the use of the animal:( BECAUSE OF US...they go through HELL..DAILY! But that is an other discussion and shall not be further deepened at the moment.
Lets not forget, that it is the animals who give US so much in this short LIFE! Lets give them something back..lets show them: WE DO NOT FORGET YOU! WE CARE, WE SEE YOU!
The shelter gang is thanking you for your support! It is beautiful to see, that there are people out there who care for them! They, eventually will get to the new homes..but until then, you are helping us enormously with your donation!
THANK YOU soo much...soo, soo much! OR as we in Romania say: Mulțumim din tot sufletul!
Priscilla, Dog Rescue Romania and the furry gang :)
