Romania Animal Rescue is holding a Cat & Dog Spayathon in the city of Tulcea on April 5 to 6, 2016. Please support us in our work to spay and neuter, free of charge, in our goal of reducing the number of stray dogs and cats roaming the streets of Romania. This is the most humane way to help the stray animals, by providing the means for them not to reproduce, i.e. no more suffering puppies or kittens. We cannot do this work without your continuous support.
We are going back there again as we just received a plea for help there again. Please help us to return to Tulcea. I spent some time there a few years ago, went to the city dump where there were dogs living off the garbage. I hope we can make a spayathon dream there, and many more, a reality. Thank you very much. www.romaniaanimalrescue.org $25. or 22 Euro. or 16 British Pounds will save hundreds of dogs and cats from being born to suffer.
Here is the plea note received
My name is Gabriela and I live in a small town in Romania, called Tulcea.
I am an animal lover and my heart breaks when I see puppies and kittens thrown into the street, or pregnant female dogs abandoned by their owners simply because they are pregnant and they do not want to bear responsibility for the cubs. I paid to vet to neuter dozens of animals found in the street, but I have reached the bottom because animal sterilization costs a lot in our country compared to our wages. Just last week I found a 7 years female dog, abandoned by their owners just because they thought the dog was pregnant- I took her to the vet who told me that this dog was not pregnant but has a tumor caused by repeated births and an uterine infection. I could not leave her like that so I paid for tumor removal and treatment. Also last week I paid the vet to neuter two pregnant cats around my house. Therefore last week I left half of my salary to the vet. I want to do more but I have limited financial resources. The problem is that there are few people like me in this town willing to do financial sacrifices for animals.
Stray cats reproduce and people started to talk on facebook to throw poison to get rid of the cats. I know there are many cats but this is not a solution... !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Many people throw puppies and kittens in tied garbage bags into waste containers around their homes !! By law they are not allowed to do so, but they come by night and throw them into the garbage bins - all night these poor animals are crying in garbage containers – I also found new born kittens thrown into plastic bags. Dog pups are also thrown in the garbage bins. Those who are abandoned in town they have a chance to be heard by good-hearted people, but pups and kittens abandoned in the county practically have no chance.
This fact can be avoided by neuter the stray animals and helping the people with low financial resources to spay their animals.
PLEASE help us by coming in our small town in a spay campaign. I know you do such campaigns in other counties in Romania, and please do not avoid us.!!
I apologize that I had the audacity to write this mail but you have the means to do this campaign here. Please do not avoid our town because the cats and dogs have no fault for being born here, at the border limit of our country"
