Dear Romania Animal Supporters »  

Dear Romania Animal Rescue Friends,

Thank you to our fabulous donors, especially in these extremely hard times, for donating to the solution to stop abandonment. Neuter or Spay! No More Strays! Our 21,000 spayed/neutered animals thank you and we thank you for saving these animals from giving birth to thousands more. Without your support this could never have been achieved. Now we must be even more vigilant to stop abandonment and unwanted births of puppies. We need to push even harder to help impoverished people spay/neuter their animals and to have more educational programs regarding responsible pet ownership. Spay/neuter is the only humane and efficient way to put an end to animal abandonment, suffering and killing. We believe it is our duty as an animal charity to make sure as many animals are relieved of pain, misery and suffering. Thank you for being there for the Romanian animals.

Love to you,
Nancy Janes



Dear Friends,

The Romanian homeless animals stay now in the spotlight of a law that states they will be rounded up and put down in 14 days if no one will adopt or redeem them. Having known this we are determined now more than ever to promote the spay and neuter as many animals as possible. We must also open the eyes of the general public, who must understand that their ignorance leads homeless animals to a life full of dangers, hunger, thirst, abuse and now with the new law, death.

What other better help can a charity provide than spay and neuter? In this way we prevent any type of abuse or pain and misery. The spayed animal has a better life not having to cope with a pregnancy. It is vital that you, our wonderful supporters, continue to help us create a better world for animals in Romania. Thank you and god bless you!

Spay/Neuter Update »  

August Spayathons

Romania Animal Rescue was recently in Adjud providing 60 more free spays/neuters for the animals. We then returned to Tecuci for the free spay/neuter of 160 more animals for this city.

Romania Animal Rescue is also donating the funds for 100 free spay/neuters in Craiova, with more donations needed to increase this as much as possible. A donation event has been set up on Facebook and currently we have raised funds for another 20 spays/neuters in Craiova. Thank you Ruth Osborne, our amazing UK vet tech, for setting this up.

Romania Animal Rescue is donating 100 free spay/neuters for villages in the Bucharest area overseen by the charity Red Panda.

Romania Animal Rescue is donating 30 free spay/neuters for the Glina shelter, having already done 10 of these.

The Result of Inaction

Please help this cycle of unwanted births to end. Fund spay/neuter in Romania.

Educational Booklets »  

1500 MORE educational booklets were printed and distributed by Romania Animal Rescue. Thanks to Mayhew International for donating the funds for printing of these great books! These 20 page full color books are outstanding and help the children as well as their parents to understand the importance of spay/neuter and animal care. RAR will be sending 100 of the booklets to Buhusi, 100 to Radauti, 100 to Vatra Dornei, 100 to Ramnicu Sarat so that they may begin education programs. We will be donating 100 books to Moreni to be handed out during our spay event this month. We will be donating an additional 900 books to the Tecuci program. The remaining books will be in Craiova for educational information for the local charity and the Family Vet clinic.

Message from Toby »  

Thank you, Ruth Osborne, for putting this ad together. Toby had a broken front leg at about 14 weeks old. Although the bone healed, the ligaments in the other front leg are stretched and not as tight as they should be. He is now under the care of Speranta Pentru Animale Craiova.
Hi, I'm Toby from Romania
To get me into a nice new home and off the street can cost around US$800 (€500, £500), which doesn't even include the vet fees for repairing my broken leg!
For this amount, Romania Animal Rescue can spay 37 females, which means after 1 year, 576 puppies can be saved from suffering like I have.
