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…)

Approximately a month ago we restarted the activities of our mobile clinic, the camper that every week reaches many rural villages in Medgidia and Cernavoda areas to neuter dozens of owned animals with no charge. During last week we went to Pestera and Rasova, very poor towns by the river Danube.

Save the Dogs is dismayed to learn that the town of Mangalia (Romania) has commissioned a non identified company to capture thousands of stray dogs that populate its streets. The animals caught have all disappeared into a “black hole” and can’t be found by local animal lovers and citizens looking for them.
At the beginning of his mandate Mayor Cristian Radu had expressed his engagement to stop the killings occurred during the previous administration and to undertake a proper dog population management program. Save the Dogs helped the Municipality to start a virtuous circle by visiting the town 8 times in 2012 with its mobile clinic, neutering nearly 400 animals. Mangalia City Manager Romulus Dumitrana also visited our Footprints of Joy centre in Cernavoda and – in spite of the financial difficulties – had expressed at the time the will to start a similar project in his own town.

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…)
