"Dog Rescue" Another part of my life

Posted by Tom71 on 08 Mar 2020, 09:34

For a few years and especially since last year, the topic of street dogs abroad (especially Romania) has grown very dear to my heart. I want to try to give the dogs a voice to tell their stories, which unfortunately are often accompanied by ignorance, hunger, suffering and pain. Especially to help make a contribution (even if it is very small compared to everything) to draw attention to it. Also to clear up the prejudices here with us.

It's a private thing of mine, but it's evolving into a multi-faceted project. In addition to the dogs (and also cats), which will always be at the forefront, because it is primarily about them and their stories. At time I wrote articles / reports over the talks / interviews with interesting people who also care about the fate of the dogs and are very active in Cluj; I was 3 weeks ago there again and some stories broke my heart. My written articles I publish in english and german.

In Cluj I met two animal rights activists, who are both working for herselves, visit the shelter in Suceag again, met the chairperson of the Animal Relief Society in Transylvania and, if it works, go to a private veterinary clinic. I will also go out myself and look for strays.

I'll not collect donations (money) here or otherone - I only collect donations as food, blankets, medical items (area 75 km arround Wuppertal/Germany). One month ago, I rent a van and I was able to donate a well-filled delivery van to Bavaria. From there they were taken directly to the shelter in Suceag.

But my first issue is: I want to write about the strays and there souls, stories.

If someone is interested in the topic and what I publish, then you can visit my blog or facebook-page

Yes :-)

I supported them also with donations:
I am selling painted miniatures on EBAY (https://www.ebay.de/usr/figure-5683). The pure proceeds (after deducting the fees) go to my fundraising campaign for the medical care and feed for the street dogs from Cluj (Klausenburg/ Romania). Those on the street and in the shelter. With the donations I support two organizations and two private animal rights activists. In the period that followed, many painted figures would be posted.

Very nice. We humans are set up to help our fellows, and, in my view, that includes animals, too.
