All animals, stray or not, abandoned or well looked after, pure breed or mixed, all deserve the best veterinary care they can get. The Center of Hope will not differentiate between animals and their owners, whether they can pay for our services or not, while remaining focused on helping the homeless. The center will also welcome difficult cases from other regional charities and will provide the best veterinary care, from routine check-ups and small surgery to emergency procedures and recovery physical therapy.
There are two initial exam rooms for patients, and then the spay kennel entry room also is an exam room for pre spay exam and prep. There is the three surgery table spay/neuter room. This is also the Veterinary Training Camp room for our vet volunteers and a hands-on training for Veterinary Training Camp attendees. In addition to this there is the main surgery room. There is the prep area, the instrument, preparation and sterilization (autoclave, etc) room, two quarantine rooms, kennel and recovery area (with a run outside for some exercise), X-Ray, and then the lab, and other rooms that are for the Center to function (power, bathroom, etc) upstairs there is the education room and bedrooms and a kitchen.
Major Milestone in Romania Animal Welfare...our Center of Hope opened its doors this Sprig 2017 to animals in need! It is the first purpose-built veterinary hospital that aims to provide free or subsidized veterinary care to stray animals and impoverished families in Romania and has been treating patients since February 2017. Some of the facilities for the animals include a sterile surgery, spay room, digital x-ray, intensive care unit and two isolation wards for patients with distemper and parvo. More than 1200 spays and neuteres have already been completed in the new spay room and with your support we hope to increase this to at least 500 spays a month! Thank you to everyone who has supported the development of the Center of Hope.
