Diego Brasioli, Italy’s new Ambassador in Romania, together with a delegation from the Italian Embassy, has paid a visit to our shelter Footprints of Joy last week.
Together with him, the mayor of Cernavoda, George Hansa and the vice mayor were also present; Save the Dogs is in good relations with them. The new Ambassador, together with the representatives of the public administrations spent quite a long time with our quadruped guest, they also gave interviews to the local television, Media TV, especially invited for this solemn occasion.
The Italian staff of Save the Dogs, together with the Romanian one would like to express their gratitude to the 5041 people who chose to contribute to our cause by the 5×1000 in 2011 (a measure which allows all Citizen to devolve part of income taxes to their favourite association).
We are not able to thank each and every one of you in person, as the names of the the people who made their contributions, remain undisclosed by the Government, but we would like to thank you for trusting us and our cause.
