Romania is known for the widespread problems of stray dogs and abandoned dogs and cats, animals that often struggle to survive. Since launching the first street dog sterilization (spay/neuter) program in Cernavoda, Romania (2002), Save the Dogs has expanded its projects. The organization now has 50 staff and is a leader in animal welfare in Romania, with the best animal shelter in the country.
Save the Dogs’ INTERNATIONAL ADOPTION program profoundly changes the lives of abused and abandoned dogs and cats who were rescued from the streets in Romania, giving them better lives in loving forever homes.
Additionally, among other activities, Save the Dogs conducts sterilization campaigns for dogs and cats to reduce uncontrolled births, rescues horses and donkeys and gives them lifetime care, and collaborates with members of local communities to improve the welfare of their animals.
