HOPE is reaching the towns and villages of Romania. We are gearing up for training veterinarians in Bulgaria. Homeless Animal Hospital saves the day (again).

Sky's Leg


Sky was brought in to be spayed by Romania Animal Rescue in Moreni and discovered she had a broken hind leg. We needed to find out if we could save it.

What People Say About Us

Claudia Dumitru · Bucharest, Romania

Dr A and all RAR team do an amazing work on s/n in Romania. I had the chance to work with them, helping with the logistics during a mega marathon and I was impressed about their dedication, hard work and professionalism. On the other hand Dr Aurelian Stefan and his brother Dr Petrisor Stefan are amazing vets, all the time when I have dificult cases in rescue they are the first in my mind and a lot of animals now enjoy their lives thanks to them. Go RAR and keep doing your work, thousands of puppies didn't born on the streets, TNR is the only way. I also want to thank to Nancy Janes for her help, every time I asked, she helped me in any way.

RAR work in Romania is HUGE. It just cannot be matched, there is no comparison. I said it before, I will repeat it: in its current situation, given the number of stray dogs and the improper management of the problem by the authorities, Romania cannot afford to lose this HUGE partner.

We do not have enough words to express what a wonderful job RAR is doing in Romania, and Dr. Aurelian Stefan is an example of amazing skills and dedication. Our vet just returned home today from training with him and goes on and on about how impressed he was with Dr. A's skills and technique, and hopes to meet him again, he is a man you can learn A LOT from. Congratulations for being the best.
