During their stay in Romania, Hundhjalpen volunteers Trina and Jenny have decided to visit Chiajna killing pound in Bucharest. They have left the pound shocked by the terrible conditions of the dogs waiting to be killed. Compared to our visit in 2005, there were no more puppies: we found out that they are killed immediately, once they get in the pound. Trina and Jenny couldn’t help crying and, of course, choosing some dogs to be rescued. 9 lucky animals have been taken to Cernavoda, even if the shelter is overcrowded. They are all small-medium sizes, plus one 3 legged dog that will probably be adopted in Sweden.
The pictures feature the arrival of the dogs to Cernavoda and our personnel carrying them inside the clinic, where they have been checked by our doctors. Yesterday we received a phone call from the killing pound, asking to receive 5 cross-teckel puppies, who are going to be euthanised in a few days. We couldn’t refuse. An average of 1000 dogs is killed monthly inside Pallady and Chiajna, the 2 killing pounds of the capital.
Last thursday a huge quantity of dog food has reached Cernavoda. It has been donated by Dutchypuppy Foundation (the organization created by Dutch presenter Bridget Maasland after she adopted a Romanian puppy) and was transported free of charge by Dogs Adoption Nederland. This new organization, recently been founded by Ton Van Der Hel, is going to rehome our dogs in Holland and has bought a truck to help both Romanian people and Romanian stray dogs. We deeply thank both organizations for their precious help.
