We wish to transform the 4th of October, the feast of Saint Francisc and the World Animal Day, into something memorable this year, by celebrating with You our 11 years of activity and commitment in Romania.
In these sad days – which evoke the terrible events in 2001 (the year when the mass eradication of the stray dogs has begun) and which provoke the same indignation – we send out a message of hope to all the the world by sharing this 5 minutes long video which presents our everyday work for them: dogs, cats, horses and donkeys saved by the intervention of Save the Dogs.
Thanks to you, Save the Dogs has achieved real miracles in these past 11 years, and as long as you stand by us, we will continue our work, hoping to do even more.
Please, help us inform the people of our existence: share this little film on the Facebook and Twitter, send it to all of your friends and acquaintances, broadcast it in every possible way.
Now more than ever, the stray dogs of Romania need your help. Don’t abandon them to their fate!
(We would like to express our gratitude to Aldo Palvan and Marisei Bortolotti for the making of this film)
The Romanian Constitutional Court decided in less than four hours that the killing law approved by the Chamber of Deputies on September the 10th is Constitutional: stray dogs can be euthanized after 14 days, if the Mayors won’t decide to keep them longer.
The appaling news has reached not only the protesters who were in front of the Court in Bucharest since early morning but also tens of thousands of citizens – in Romania and in Europe – who hit the streets during last weeks to protest against the law. (more…)

The Government is ignoring the European Convention on Companion Animals and Written Declaration 26/2011 approved by EU Parliament.
After being stuck for 2 years at the Public Administration Commission, suddenly the new law on dog population management was approved this morning by Romanian Parliament with a relevant majority of votes. Dogs will be killed after 14 days in municipality pounds, unless Mayors will have the financial resources to keep the animals longer. The new law cancels the principle stated in the 9/2008 law, which forbid euthanasia on healthy and sociable dogs. (more…)
