HORSE SUDDENLY FALLS EXHAUSTED AFTER INTENSE WORK

The Rom Gipsy Community in Medgidia utilizes hundreds of horses to work in the transport of waste material.
Unfortunately none of these animals gets enough food or enough health assistance and as a consequence they die young and in pain.

The last occurrence was last April 13 when the local police contacted Save the Dogs to help one horse struggling to get up after collapsing on the ground and being beaten by the owner.
Once Save the Dogs got to the spot, they tried to convince the owner to put the horse down instantly. The owner denied the help and support so he was offered a €50 cash to remove the animal and take it to the nearest centre.
At the centre, Alina, our vet is evaluating the extent of the injury to the horse’ legs to make a more accurate diagnosis. Click here to see all photos about the horse at Medgidia’s shelter.
The only problem is that there’s only 1
place left at the stable centre at Cernavoda and unfortunately it is impossible to help and support all the overworked horses of the area.

Anyone interested in contributing with the costs for this horse and in general the first aider for the equine centre can donate money via our web site with the subject “assistance to horses”.

    Aggiornamento da Medgidia: la cavalla recuperata qualche giorno fa e ribattezzata Eugenia, sta finalmente bene.
    E’ stata visitata da un veterinario di Bucarest esperto in cavalli che ha stabilità la sua età: Eugenia ha ben 14 anni.

    Presto verrà spostata nella nuova stalla per cavalli, costruita sul terreno di Cernavoda.
    Grazie a tutti i sostenitori che ci aiuteranno a mantenerla.

    Ci sono 1000 motivi per sostenere STD.
    anche economicamente.
