The case we are going to tell you about this week bears the bitter taste of abandonment and human indifference, the characteristics of most of the cases of the animals we have presented so far.
We are in Galaţi, in the South-East of Romania, in the first days of January. The protagonist of this sad story is a horse, a noble and exploited animal, especially in a rural country such as Romania. (more…)
Since the second half of October the building of the new stable has begun, which will find its place right next to the present one and will give us the possibility to save other horses in need of help.
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)
We are already familiar with Margherita the horse’s case, a case we have encountered during the month of May. It was a shocking one due to the injuries and the severity of the abuse the animal has suffered by the hands of her former owner.
It is our great pride and joy to present the photo of her revival: she almost seems to be a different horse now, not only her physical strength and health being recovered but she is also on the way of rebuilding her trust in people.
Our vet Roxana treated her with great love; also she was almost spoiled by the staff with fruits and carrots. As a result Margherita has gained weight and she also became the best friend of Romica, a horse suffering from pulmonary emphysema; a condition that made it difficult for him to fit in with group. There has also been the ongoing case against the former owner; we are hoping for a sentence as soon as possible.[/ang_en] (more…)
