Thanks to the work which began in July, financed by Save the Dogs supporters and our British partners at the Donkey Sanctuary (around € 34,000 in total) we connected to a nearby farmer’s water works and we conducted water up to the donkey stables, along a tract of around 1000 linear metres. These extensive works entailed the grounding of a huge 30,000 tank in the courtyard of our country house and, in order to supply the stables, bulldozing under a country road to get the electric cables and piping up to our land. This land, totalling 45,000 m2, will, in addition to the donkey refuge, also be the site of the new dog kennels and veterinary clinic as soon as Save the Dogs finds the necessary funds. The works for the electricity connection are still in progress and should be completed by mid October. Several pillars will provide support for the pylons which will reach both the little building where one of our workers lives and the three containers which the vet and other workers involved in looking after the donkeys use during the day. When the infrastructures have been completed, we will be able to concentrate on the new dog refuge, which is urgently needed since the bailment agreement between Save the Dogs and Cernavoda council is about to expire.
Thanks to the help of all our supporters we finally managed to gain the amount that was necessary to buy a professional washing machine for Cernavoda, essential to guarantee hygiene and cleanness for the dogs that live in the shelter.
The staff of Save the Dogs would like to thank all the kind-hearted people who made this possible, and especially Mrs Anna V, for her important donation.
