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…)
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…)

During winter in Romania, the thermometer can fall to up to 20 degrees below zero. It’s not only stray dogs, cats and horses that lose their lives in these temperatures, but also owned pets – often forced to live in appalling conditions.
In fact, ignorance or the lack of economic resources, prevent many people from providing their four-legged friends with adequate living conditions, and in some areas the complete absence of veterinary services does the rest.
In this bleak context, the intervention of the STD mobile clinic can make the difference between life and death for dozens of animals every day.
The month of October will see us engaged in a real race against time to ensure that in addition to the usual interventions, other important steps are taken to allow for dozens of dogs to survive during the cold season.
In many cases, in order to save an animal’s life, a kennel to shelter them from freezing is enough, and our mobile clinic is already at work in the most critical areas to distribute kennels to the animals of destitute people.
Thanks to our repeated interventions, the furry members of this family in the village of Saligny have been sterilized and vaccinated, and are now also protected from the cold thanks to kennels donated by our staff.
There are hundreds of cases in which it would take very little to ensure the survival or more acceptable living conditions of many animals. Here at STD we do everything we can, but with your help we could do even more.
In order to do so, during the month of October, the STD mobile clinic will need all of you to reach more villages and provide many animals with care or shelter from the cold.
Your donation can help ensure the survival of many dogs next winter, and every contribution, no matter how small, really makes a difference.
In order to donate to the mobile clinic, it’s possible to make a donation to our current account, inserting “Mobile Clinic” as the payment reference.
Sabina used to live in the courtyard of a company in Medgidia; the workers used to feed and take care of her and other stray dogs. After attending to her sterilization, we came to the decision of entrusting her to those who had looked after her till then. Things changed drastically when, out of the blue, the owner of the company forbade his personnel to feed her and the other dogs living in the area. When our staff arrived there for carrying out an inspection, Sabina was so weak and underfed that she was about starving. Though our refuge was overloaded, we decided to hold her and give her a strong restorative treatment; to this end, we also asked for our supporters’ cooperation. Sabina’s conditions were dreadful.
Currently, thanks to our therapy and to the supporters’ help, Sabina has completely recovered and has been adopted in Sweden, where she lives with a brand new family! At the following link you will see her playing and running with her new friend Ben. Another happy end thanks to Save the Dogs and its followers!
