Going South

Animal Spay Neuter International was contacted to help in Bulgaria where a local animal activist needed help with spay and neuter for her animals but also for the poor getto animals she was feeding daily. We crossed the Danube going south and we reached the destination in 5 hours. We managed to spay 70 animals and to remove a big tumor in a big shepherd dog. One surgery was special – one very skinny momma dog came with her 3 pups and we accepted them all for surgery as there was a chance of sale adoption and those pups would reproduce again and again. The female dog was so skinny and we believed the owner s story she ate a baby goat one day. He beat her very bad and she never did it again. From now on she will use all the food for herself and will hopefully put some weight. We hope will return in the area for more surgeries and more help. We also provided 50 vaccines and external parasite treatment for all the dogs that needed it . Thank you all people that donate towards such projects!

It is late evening and the phone rings. It is about a stray dog somebody was feeding On the side of the road and now he found her in seazures. We helped the little sweet Female Dog and kept her over night. Next day the good samaritan found her pups and brought them to us . Now she nurses the three pups and we are looking for a foster place and for families for the pups. We only wish she was spayed and spare the dangers that the pups might encounter like parvo and distemper. Please share this post with Your friends:

Map Of Hope: Guten Abend Aurelian! Ich freue mich, daß Du die Zeit zu diesem Telefonat gefunden hast. Die Leser der mapofhope.de haben sich ein Gespräch mit Dir gewünscht, und es soll heute Abend um Dich, Deinen Werdegang, Dein Engagement gehen, und darum, wie die Situation der Strassenhunde in Rumänien aktuell aus Deiner Sicht ist, und welche Lösungen Du siehst.

Warum ich Tierarzt geworden bin

10172596_10206207715940185_2773176056467867148_nDr. Aurelian Stefan: Ich bin in Bukarest geboren. Ich bin ein Bukarester, aber meine Schulferien habe ich immer bei meinen Verwandten auf dem Land verbracht. Da war eine Kombination von reiner Armut, reine Landwirtschaftliche Arbeit, die immer mit Tieren zu tun hatte. Das bedeutet, die Leute, die armen Leute, verliessen sich ganz auf die Tiere, die sie jeweils auf ihrem Hof hielten. Pferde, Kühe, alle…

Not her choice…

Kimmy is a black blend dog. She arrived from a village near Craiova after trying for 2 days to give birth. We decided to perform an immediate C section to save her life. We found 3 pups inside her and one of them was blocked as it was very big. The pups were all dead but we saved Kimmy. HAH help came right on time and she went home to her owner after spending one night with us. She went home to her family that learned a tough lesson : breeding your pet is something that involves a great deal of risks  and you should be prepared for them. Bye bye Kimmy!

New fashion in town!

Craiova the town where we are based is also the town where city hall has no long term plan regarding the homeless dogs and cats. The numbers of stray animals in need for a home exceeds the numbers of available homes of foster places so the rescuers have to come up with new ideeas in order to find a home for the animals they rescue every day. Meet Bruno, a lovely senior labrador that was found wondering the streets and with a “funny hind legs walk”. He has also a problem with his genitals. X-ray showed a severe spine fracture that healed incredibly well and we were quite amazed he can walk. We operated his genitals and sterilised him and he is now awaiting a loving family.
