Hundreds of dogs treated at mobile clinic in Romania
We have been working with Save the Dogs to protect dogs in a remote area of Romania
Between May and September this year, we sponsored a mobile vet clinic, run by Romanian charity Save the Dogs.
The treatment centre visited 20 villages in Constanta county, Romania, providing veterinary care where previously it was either non-existent or unaffordable for dog-owners.
Since May, the clinic has sterilised and neutered a total of 640 dogs. This will avoid the birth of potentially thousands of puppies, who could have ended up abandoned and living on the streets of nearby towns.
In line with a new Romanian law adopted in September 2013, 626 dogs were also microchipped and registered on a new database.
Villagers received information on dog care and welfare too, meaning a better life for these animals.
Local resident Munteanu Constani is 65 years old and lives in Pestera, a remote village in the region. Munteanu is the proud owner of three white dogs and loves them dearly - although he says his five year old Granddaughter, Maria, loves them even more!
Constantin said, "We are very happy about the Mobile Clinic's activity, and Maria is even happier! Thank you all."
