A good start to the new year

Perhaps this is a good omen for the rest of the year – I certainly hope so – we started  2013 with a donation.   We also saw some more great fundraising activities from our supporters, including  from Gertrude Gaderbauer Sagmuller who managed to raise €550 from the sale of our calendars.    These donations have helped fund our first initiative this year – a food donation for the shelter dogs.  Using our latest donations we were able to purchase 300kg of dry food, and dental sticks, which gives all the dogs in the shelter a proper feed for one day.  Needless to say there were lots of very happy dogs and many wagging tails!

We were also able to vaccinate 14 of the newly abandoned puppies, giving them a fighting chance of survival in the shelter.  There is as always however so much more to do – especially as the winter is now in full swing.  The shelter dogs will need more food donations to help them through the winter and those that get sick, or puppies that need vaccination, will need our support with their medical bills. In particular we need funding to vaccinate the latest 8 puppies and young dogs abandoned at the shelter.

Whilst on the one hand we want to provide this support to all the shelter dogs we also want to try to get as many of them out of the shelter and into forever homes.  Our first appeal for the new year is for the following dogs below, all of whom are desperate to share their love and live a happy life in a forever home, out of the cold and with plenty of food.

There is little Naomi, a 4-5 month old little girl; Sugar, a very cute 5-6 month old girl;  Shana adorable fluffy lady just over 1 year old, all of whom are currently in the shelter where their future is uncertain and not good.  We also want to find a good home for little Tabea, mom of Naomi, who is currently living in the local shelter with her daughter

If you can open up your home to one of these babies or know anyone who can, please let us know.  If you cannot give one a home then please help us by donating towards our vaccination scheme, and share our blog with friends and family – perhaps they would like to help or know someone who would like to give one of these dogs a chance at a happy life.

    Hi,first off i would like to say i will be making a donation very soon (on pay day) to help the cause of taking care of all those poor dogs. Im hoping you can answer my question or point me in the right direction.I live in the United States and would love to adopt a dog from Romania. But do rescued 3 dogs here. I had to put one to sleep after 5 years due to cancer. My other 2 dogs get along well with other dogs,so another would fit right in. My children love them to death and the dogs love them even more. Im interested in getting a dog out of Romania because here dogs that need homes dont live in such harsh conditions. Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated! Thank you for reading this

      Hello and thank you! Sorry to hear about your third dog – that is so heartbreaking when they have to leave us. Great to hear that you want to take another dog – rescue animals is such an amazing thing to do and the love they give back is priceless! I will drop you an email with more information – in theory it should be possible to transport a dog to the USA.
