Dogs at the Jewish cemetery in Costanza welcomed the STD veterinary team, which returned to the site following a request from caretakers. Alina and her colleagues came back to continue with the almost completed task of sterilizing the dogs found there. Romanian cemeteries have always been a place where packs of starving dogs go in search of food and often they find it thanks to kind-hearted caretakers and relatives of the deceased.’  Generally, in orthodox countries it is customary to take food for the dead, which is then given to those begging inside the cemetery. There is even some left for the needy with four-legs. Dogs in the Jewish cemetery in Costanza are particularly lucky thanks to the treatment they receive from their minders.

Our mobile clinic has visited a few days ago a village 25 km away from Medgidia, Viisoara, to neuter 8 female dogs owned by a local family. As usual, the neuterings have been provided for free to the owners that contacted STD. During its stay in Viisoara, the team also rescued a cat biten by a dog: Alina managed to make a succesful surgery’ and the cat has been transferred to our centre in Medgidia (see pictures). If you wish to support our mobile clinic activities or give a contribution to the cat expenses,’ please donate here.

Today and tomorrow the mobile clinic will be at Focsani (province of Vrancea) where a local association has a kennels. This will be the second visit to this area: the first, last April, led to the sterilisation of 24 dogs and at least twice the number of treatments against mange. Unfortunately the terrible sanitary situation does not allow STD to do any more than limit the births, so that other animals do not have to live in these conditions and die of these diseases. In Focsani strays are killed without pity by the public authorities, while the local association has decided to keep hundreds of animals in their pens without any hope for the future, just to “save” them from the dog-catchers. The situation is similar in most Rumanian towns.

In May the mobile clinic, together with the Medgidia team, spent 4 days in Sulina, an island in the delta of the Danube. They were called by the council, who had decided not to kill the stray dogs in the area; STD sterilised 72 animals, 68 of which were dogs and 4 of which were cats. Also present was a Danish vet on her first’  visit to Rumania.
