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 November 2019, we are approaching 80,000 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

What we aim to solve

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.

Charting Impact

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

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?

What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have they accomplished so far and what's next?

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.

Neuter and spay so that there are less stray dogs and cats. 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.

The new Center of Hope near Bucharest will reach thousands of animals and provide excellent highly qualified vets and techs . Ability to travel throughout Romania as well as other needy parts of the world to provide help. . Our vets have trained vets from the USA, UK, Ireland, Germany, Greece, Switzerland, Norway, Germany, Romania, Bulgaria and have worked in Suriname, Dominican Republic, Portugal, Bulgaria, Greece, Moldova and Romania. RAR has a mobile clinic, a mobile van, and a spay shuttle that reaches out to communities all over 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 9000-10,000, but have the ability to do thousands more.

we already are getting news articles in the papers about the impact of our campaigns. People report to us (on Facebook) that they rarely see puppies in the regions we have concentrated our efforts on in Romania. This means less are born for people to abandon.

we have spayed/neutered over 73,000 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 17,500, 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.
