When Mihaela from the Asociation STAAD from Mangalia has found the small Chelea, she was just a little starving puppy, soaking wet from the rain.

Despite of the fact that the small shelter of the STAAD is close to collapsing, Mihaela couldn’t bring herself to leaving the puppy on the street, even though there are thousands of other dogs like Chelsea, being abandoned by their irresponsible owners. (more…)

ROSIE, ON THE RUN FROM THE CHAIN

Rosie is one of the thousands of dogs in Romania who live their lives tied to a chain, destined to have a difficult life that offers nothing outside of endless boredom.

We don’t know if this lovely animal managed to free herself on her own, or if her owner gave her up, but one thing was certain: instead of a collar Rosie had a wire around her neck.

ANIA, A TOUCHING STORY

As our supporters well know, our main activity at the veterinary centers of Save the Dogs in Romania is neutering stray dogs and cats. Because of the great number of local abandonment, the healthy animals, capable of surviving on the streets, are released after spending a short time at our shelters.

But this is not the way things always go on. (more…)

Like every year during this period, Save the Dogs performs a review of international adoptions which have allowed a certain number of lucky Romanian former strays to join a family overseas.

Compared to 2010, we have recorded a slight decline of departures, that is -40 animals, with the usual primacy from the north of Italy (308 between dogs and cats) followed by Sweden (148 adopted dogs), Finland (50 adoptions) and Switzerland (43 quadrupeds settled in many families).  As for the origin of the animals, 282 were from the Cernavoda shelter, 274 from Medgidia (but about sixty came from Limanu, a place often visited by our mobile clinic) while 2 came from Bucharest and 3 from Costanza. To view all the figures in detail, you can visit the relevant section of the website which records yearly the numbers of animals which leave and where they go to.

We would like to remind our supporters that while the adoptions from Northern Europe and from and the Italian-speaking Switzerland have covered the costs; all costs of travel toward Italy have been self-funded by STD.  We would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who decided to give a “put on the wings” cube during the festive season, thanks to these donations, 116 flights have been sponsored which offer salvation to lots of fortunate puppies.
