Message from Carmen Arsene, President of FNPA and long time animal welfare activist in Romania.
In 2000 the images of dogs killed in the forest of Pitesti city, loaded in carts and thrown into a ravine, terrified the international community. Back then, due to the lack of proper animal protection legislation (which was much later adopted) mistreatment and killings were not prohibited, therefore any animal abuse could have been judged morally at the most, but was not considered illegal.

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)
Seven years after the last tragic accident, in which a Japanese diplomat died in the centre of Bucharest, another fatality occurred in the Romanian capital. A 4-year-old, who was playing with his little brother in the eastern suburbs of the city, was attacked and mauled by a pack of stray dogs, after his grandmother had lost sight of him.
The incident has reignited the unresolved issue of stray dogs in Bucharest and throughout Romania, and yesterday President Traian Basescu – who has always been a great supporter of the bloody solutions – hastened to call for the immediate killing of all homeless dogs inside and outside public dog pounds.

At first it seemed to be a case known only in Great Britain, but the incident of horse meat sold as buffalo meat has reached other European countries, such as France or Ireland. It seems that this ground meat came from Romanian butchers, though the authorities deny these accusations, made by French and English companies. As a result of the incident, Findus has removed from the shelves of the French superstores all of their lasagne-type products based on casserole, which were proved to contain horse meat in a proportion of 99%-100% .
