What A Difference Your Dollar Makes In These Abused & Abandoned Animals' Lives

We need URGENT help to continue caring for Romania's tortured street animals and the Ukrainian pets left in our care when their owners either abandoned them at the airport/train station or could not transit with them.

So many of you generously stepped in to help our Romanian vets care for human and animal victims of the Russian invasion but...

... as "compassion fatigue" sets in and the world moves on to other headlines...

we are still working 24/7/365 to save and care for these innocent souls.  It's only possible via the goodwill of animal lovers and humanitarians like you.

These Heroic Vets & Animal Rescuers Need Help To Continue Caring For Vulnerable Ukrainian & Romanian Animals

Save Our Paws and Vischivet in Romania dedicate their lives to saving, sterilizing and finding forever homes for the overwhelming population of abused, exploited and abandoned cats and dogs in Romania and Ukraine.

They run on volunteers, donations and unrelenting sacrifice.

Without Dr. Andra Fecioru and Dr. Emma Stratulat thousands of defenseless animals would have perished from horrific lives or suffer greatly at the hands of human ignorance and cruelty.

Right now, Dr. Fecioru, Dr. Emma Stratulat and their associations help Ukrainian animal victims along with the overwhelming Romanian street animal population by providing:

 ✅ Temporary or permanent shelter

 ✅  FREE VETERINARY CARE (including vaccinations, sterilizations and major surgeries/rehab)

 ✅ Partnership with international rescue orgs to find these sweet souls forever homes

 ✅  Free transport to facilities

 ✅ Food, water, comfort, and compassion


 ✅  Medicine and medical/surgical supplies

 ✅ Vaccinations, sterilizations

 ✅ EU pet passport and health records so they may be adopted internationally

 ✅ Beds, blankets, toys

 ✅ Cleaning supplies

 ✅ Food (we went through one TON in one day at height of refugee influx)

 ✅ Transport fuel 

Time is of the essence. Please act now if you're inclined.
On top of caring for the overwhelming numbers of abused, discarded and tortured Romanian street animals that are everywhere here, these doctors are now doing all they can to help their Ukrainian neighbors. 

Every cent or social share is profoundly appreciated.

Imagine yourself, family and pets in the shoes of these innocent, devastated people and animals.
If you're looking for a sign to pay it forward, this is it.

Dogs in the horrific, overcrammed public shelters are killed within 14 days (if they don't kill each other from being overcrowded and stressed first).
This is not a humane euthanization. Dogs are enclosed in groups by sheeting, their lungs burned to death by caustic soda. 

You can help right now with anything you might be able to muster. Even if it's only to help spread the word, it means the world.  The fundraiser link to copy and share is:

I will exchange all funds -- at the current spot market exchange rate -- into the Romanian Leu (RON) via my international Revolut account and transfer it directly to their IBAN account.

Unfortunately, GoFundMe does not operate in Romania so we have to do an international exchange to get them the funds.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
