Homeless dogs and cats in Constanta, Romania, need us!
My name is Roxana Suliman, I am 31 years old and I'm from a small town on the Black Sea shore.
Well, I always liked animals, and even though I grew up in an apartment and not in a house with garden, I always had a puppy/adult pet in the house.
As I understood, outside Romania are not so many dogs and cats on the streets homeless.
Here we have at every corner of each block a group of cats or dogs. At least 50 in a neighborhood. Or even more.
I am aware that I can not help everyone, and this saddens me every day. In my town is a center for animals, dog catchers gather them all there, those whom they consider best they keep, thinking that someone can adopt them, while others are killed and thrown into a pit.
5 years ago I had a car accident with psychological trauma, anxiety and panic attacks. Trauma that were prolonged for 2-3 years. I had a pretty heavy period and any person who has passed or passes through it can understand.
I had much time to meditate, reflect, and restore myself because I was not able to find a stable job. And all this is because I was feeling sick from out of the blue and i was forced to bargain, and to be honest, nobody wants a person with anxiety at work.
I want to mention that a year and a half I took treatment for this problem. I gave up treatment because the pills were making me feel dizzy, like a zombie. And I decided to confront the issue with other methods.
But I deviated from what I wanted to say. This long recovery time, it placed myself in the world around my neighborhood. I discovered an unlimited and unbounded love for all animals in the neighborhood. Everyone who knows me, neighbors or acquaintances, they can say that my relationship with homeless animals is far too special. Very often I feel that I can understand them and they can understand me.
Unfortunately, I have a stable work just from half a year. I managed to pay my debts and from my little income, I try with love to buy them food from pet shops. But it's not enough. There are so many, next to the building or in the park near the building. Any animal lover and breeder knows how expensive is their food, especially when you have to feed so many beautiful souls.
And more than that every three months, each female dog or cat a makes other gorgeous babies.
I repeat myself. I know it's hard to take care of everyone. I would rather have resources to do a clinic with a large space for them to play, trainers, carers and so on. And this is the dream! But back to reality, I wish that I can give them at-least the daily food and make them a box where one or many gather to sleep. I wish I can afford to buy the materials in order to do this. Or when I see one of them hurt I wish i can be able in that moment to pay them the vet consultation, not just to look at them and worry about what to do. Most know me by voice, so special is our relationship.
Even though I am aware that in this world there are thousands of fund-raising for animals, I just want to say that - ANIMALS WITHOUT HOUSE, IN CONSTANTA, ROMANIA NEED YOUR HELP TOO! THANK YOU!
