Month: August 2014

Ursa’s amazing transformation

Last month I wrote about Ursa, a poor dog who was so malnourished she could not stand and she had to be carried to safety back in June.  She was nothing but skin and bones, with sores where the skin was taught across her bones. She was in a heart wrenching state.

In the our care, despite her emaciated state, she was the most lovely, tail-wagging dog, and despite all she had gone through she trusted us and showed the most amazing character.  Thanks to some great support, financially from our supporters, and also from our vet Popescu, she made an amazing recovery. 

We now have fantastic news!  Ursa has left Romania, and the country where she nearly starved to death, and has traveled to a new home in Germany.  You might have thought that she was still too weak to travel, however Ursa has made an amazing transformation.  As you can see from the photo Ursa now looks like a new dog!  And doesn’t she look happy!

Ursa would not be here today if it were not for Hope for Romanian Strays. There are so many more dogs that need our help so please continue to support us and please continue to share our posts and images.  For dogs like Ursa it makes a huge difference.

Two years and so many Happy Tails!

Happy!

One of our supporters recently reminded us that it was two years ago that Hope for Romanian Strays was founded.  We had been too busy to remember! These have been two emotional years in which we have seen many ups and downs.  We have seen far too many dogs who needed urgent help, far too many who we were unable to rescue and far too much misery, cruelty and despair.

Hope for Romanian Strays was founded between 14 and 31 August 2012 by a small group of volunteers who wanted to formally do more for the stray cats and dogs   of Ploiesti.  The life of the group started on Facebook, where volunteers would post about dogs and cats in need of help or adoption, and share their photos to try to help them.  From this small group of a few we have now grown into a fully fledged charity, helping hundreds of animals in Ploiesti in desperate need.

We have had fantastic successes, have rescued and saved so many dogs (and a cats),and have done so much good for the strays in the shelter.  We have also had so many Happy Tails which make all the work and effort worth while.  Hundreds of dogs are now living wonderful, happy lives with their new forever families outside of Romania and in celebration of our two year anniversary we wanted to share some of their photos, video’s and stories.
