Mission

Promoting and establishing animal welfare in the country of Romania and other impoverished countries, as well as providing free or subsidized veterinary services for the animals of the poor, including spay/neuter and treatments, veterinary training, and education.

Notes from the nonprofit

Romania Animal Rescue has provided spay and neuter throughout the country of Romania. As of April 2022, we are over 101,544 spays and neuters. We also sponsor veterinary training for Romanian vets at the Center of Hope, our headquarters in Romania, so that more vets can learn how to do excellent surgical techniques. The Homeless Animals Hospital project is the first of its kind in Romania, providing free or subsidized veterinary care for the most needy of animals that would otherwise receive none. *Romania Animal Rescue's Homeless Animals Hospital program was awarded "Project of the Month" in March 2015, following a visit by Global Giving representative. Romania Animal Rescue has 5 fundraisers approved on Global Giving since 2012. It is estimated that for each unspayed female dog and her offspring, up to 67,000 puppies can be born. Our programs alleviate the birth of animals that are born to be abandoned, suffer from diseases, starvation, or will be killed

Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Unwanted animal births lead to needless suffering of both animals and caregivers, as well as the community. Animals that have no one to provide the costs of vet care need to have that care, regardless of ability to pay. We plan to reach a day when there are no more animals living on the streets, abandoned, thrown into horrible shelters. All this can be achieved through our vast spay and neuter programs.

Goals & Strategy

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Creating a better world by making sure all animals are wanted and have homes. Those that are not fortunate enough to live in wealthier countries to receive vet care. Veterinary Training so that more vets throughout the world can learn safe surgical procedures. Education to reach as many people as possible on humane treatment of animals

Neuter and spay so that there are less stray dogs and cats. Provide vet care via the Homeless Animals Hospital program, so that even those who have no funds to pay can bring in a suffering dog or cat and receive free veterinary care. Reaching out to the most impoverished to help them care for the pets they love. Training vets so that more animals can benefit from spay/neuter and high quality veterinary care. Educate the public and gain their trust.

We work out of 2 hubs in Romania. The Center of Hope Veterinary Hospital near Bucharest reaches thousands of animals and provides excellent highly qualified vets and techs . Family Vet clinic in Craiova is our base in that region of Romania. RAR works with 26 vets, techs and staff in Romania at these two hubs.
Our vets have trained vets from the USA, UK, Ireland, Germany, Greece, Switzerland, Norway, Romania, Bulgaria, South Korea and have worked in Suriname, Dominican Republic, Portugal, Bulgaria, Greece, Moldova and Romania. Our main focus is Romania as the need is immense.
RAR has a mobile clinic, a mobile van, and a spay shuttle that reaches out to communities in Romania as well as in Bulgaria and Moldova on a smaller scale.
Our goal is to reach 15,000 spays and neuters per year. Currently we provide 7000-9000, but have the ability to do thousands more.

we have spayed/neutered over 86,000 animals. We have provided veterinary care for thousands of dogs and cats, and help provide funding for foster care and shelter food. We have distributed 18,500, 20 page, full color interactive educational books to Romanian children and adults. We have trained 25 vets. But we need to do more...we need to do more spay/neuter....we need to train more vets, we need to provide more treatment of animals via Homeless Animals Hospital. We work with our adoption partners in the UK and EU to find excellent homes for homeless dogs and cats.
