Following the positive action undertaken in Medgidia, Save the Dogs launches the program for the identification and registration of owned dogs also in the city of Cernavoda.
Thanks to a partnership with the Municipality, the latter providing the necessary microchips, a few days ago our operators have started a real “door to door” campaign. Our purpose is to sterilize and register owned dogs at our expense, offering a free of charge service for the citizens.
Save the Dogs has also hired a part-time operator, who will record the dogs in the canine register. This represents a further effort supported by our association in order to carry forward our work at best.
There are still very few places in Romania where the activity of identification and registration of owned dogs has started, as envisaged by the Romanian law. Through this action Save the Dogs intends to insist on the positives aspects of the legislation, hoping that other municipal administrations may take Cernavoda and Medgidia as virtuous examples to be reproduced on their own territory.
Save the Dogs’ mobile clinic reaches every year the Romanian villages in order to sterilize and cure for free the dogs who could not benefit from veterinarian services.
Now, more than ever, due to the adoption of the strays killing law it is important to carry on this action. As a matter of fact the only compelling part of the recently adopted law is the one related to compulsory sterilization and registration of owned dogs, two essential tools for the prevention of the stray dogs phenomenon, yet without any institutional financial support.
In order to ensure free of charge assistance through the mobile clinic’s activity we also need your help! (more…)

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…)
It is official: Cernavoda and Medgidia will be the first towns in Romania where a local dog registration program will be launched thanks to the partnership with “Save the Dogs”. 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…)
