A year after the approval of the “strays killing” law by the Romanian Parliament, the European citizens say NO again to the mass killing of abandoned dogs.
Saturday, September 27, many European squares have joined the third international protest, gathering people kept together by the desire to stop the bloodshed started last December 2013. People protested in the streets of Berlin, Stockholm and London but also in many Romanian cities, whose residents are tired of the incompetence and corruption of their own institutions.
This is the most extraordinary aspect that emerges from the events: a gradual awakening of the collective consciousness in Romania, especially of young people, unimaginable only a few years ago.
Hunger, filth, disease and loneliness: this is the routine of the Romanian strays. Condemned without fault, most of the times they end their existence along the road, under the resigned look of the passers-by.
This would have been the destiny of Tumpy and Perla, two dogs who entered our clinics last week. Dirty and exhausted by starvation and disease, the two strays have had the good fortune to run into our operators who have saved them from certain death. (more…)
Today is the International Day of Bequests, a recurrence that this year for the first time we decided to celebrate with you. We believe it is in fact a nice opportunity to thank you for all the support you are giving to the animals in Romania but also to suggest a step ahead.
Unfortunately for many of us the word “bequest” is almost a taboo subject. Yet if we can break through the barrier that does not allow us a serene reflection, the Romanian animals would benefit for the years to come. In fact deciding to leave a bequest in favor of Save the Dogs means giving our love for dogs, cats, horses and donkeys the opportunity to continue making the difference.
A will is an action that can be done at any time of our lives, without penalizing our heirs and giving a future to our own ideals.
To find out more we invite you to consult your lawyer to get all the details in order to contemplate an eventual decision.
Think about it, a Romania respectful of its animals is a dream that together we can turn into reality!
Ecosal public shelter (Galati, August 2014)
The rumor that has been circulating lately is now official: the Romanian Veterinary Authority set up a body responsible for animal protection. The newborn institution is called “Animal police”: eight inspectors only in Bucharest and an inspector for each province will monitor the animal living conditions in Romania. Among the facilities subject to future controls we also count the public kennels, which will have to comply with the Romanian legislation in order to continue their activities of strays capture, detention and euthanasia.
