Our Solution

Why We Should Help

Why We Should Help

Unlike the Western World, there are few charities in Romania. Volunteerism is scarce. Families and neighbors reach out to each other instead of asking strangers for help. There is an intergenerational legacy of distrust because of their history of war and betrayal. The historic Orthodox Church is revered by most there, but has no role in the country's social or economic problems. The United States is a nation of pet lovers and is also a nation of immigrants.

We must continue the tradition that they so wisely started.

The United States is a young country with Old World values. As our country grew, so did our pet population. We have a long way to go to solve our own crisis but the solution is a work in progress. An important part of our heritage is to share our wealth, donate our time, help the less fortunate, and to give back. Those of us who work with Romania Animal Rescue have devoted decades to volunteer work for local and national animal welfare groups in the United States. This experience compels us to help some of the least fortunate and most desperate animals whose faces cross our collective minds before our heads hit the pillows each night.

The brutal dictatorship of Ceausescu long gone, many animals are neglected, abused, or killed and tossed away like garbage. Wages remain low and Romanians still struggle to make ends meet. As the economy grows the culture changes. The animals' cries for help are beginning to be heard.
