A couple of weeks ago we received a phone call at the Save the Dogs headquarter from Tulcea County. It came from an owner who could not take care of his donkey any longer, requesting our help in offering shelter to the animal. Winter is a very difficult time of year for the people living in Romanian villages, because they don’t have the means to stock the necessary quantity of hay and they cannot secure even the most necessary supplies for their animals.
We do not know how this man had heard about us, but when we met him we saw that he was a good-hearted and generous person, who decided to donate the donkey to STD instead of selling him to a slaughterhouse (more…)

At our proposal last month both city counsels approved the launching of a registration program of the dogs with owners, by the use of a microchip, which will be free of charge for these animals.
This registration will be made by a team, formed by a veterinary of STD, a clerk and a policeman. This team will pay a visit to all the owners. In the first year of the program there is expected the identification and registration of 2000 dogs in each of these towns. (more…)
