Freundeskreis der Straßenhunde in Campulung e.V.

managed by S. van Staveren (Communication)

About us

The German Animal Protection Association "Freundeskreis der Straßenhunde in Campulung - Hilfe für Tiere in Rumänien e.V." supports and promotes the shelter "Asociatia Anima" in Campulung, Romania which takes currently care of 885 mostly former street dogs. The ultimate aim is to improve the situation in the long term and to stabilize it.

Besides ensuring the daily feed rations of 10,500 kg per month and medical care, including vaccinations, the neutering and marking the dogs with microchips are the ongoing challenges the association is trying to cope with donations. The fair pay and social benefits for the 11 shelter employees devotedly taking care of the stray dogs is also paid out of donations.

Since October 2013, the association is offering regular castration projects in Campulung and the surrounding - even for privately held dogs. Preventing unwanted offspring is the only way to avoid further suffering and improve the situation on the long term for humans and animals. For this aim realistic population educational work is needed and we help them to "help themselves".

The shelter has to leave the ground after 12 years. Therefore the building of a new animal shelter - according to EU standards - is mandatory. The association would like to offer a species-appropriate and safe home, in which the mostly former street dogs can be taking care of without fear of torture and killing.

Fertigstellung erste Betonplatte verzögert sich durch Wintereinbruch... / Winter delayes the compleation of the first concrete plattform...

  S. van Staveren  26 January 2017 at 05:38 PM

Unsere Mitarbeiter besuchen die Baustelle des neuen Tierheimes regelmäßig zusammen mit dem Bauleiter um den Fortschritt zu begutachten, der sich sehen lassen kann! Mittlerweile kann man sich auch ohne den Plan zu Hilfe nehmen zu müssen vorstellen, wie das neue Tierheim einmal aussehen wird :) 

Der Beton der ersten Platte ist einwandfrei verlegt worden und von sehr guter Qualität. Alle beteiligten sind sehr zufrieden mit dem bisherigen Ergebnis. Leider konnte der erste Teil im Dezember aufgrund der sehr kalten Nächte nun doch nicht ganz fertig gestellt werden - es ist einfach zu kalt um weiter zu betonieren.

Aber es herrscht natürlich kein Stillstand auf der Baustelle - es werden lediglich andere Arbeiten vorgezogen wie zum Beispiel Abwassergräben in den Beton einziehen und weiteren Untergrund für die Betonierung vorbereiten.

Wir freuen uns sehr, dass alles so gut läuft und warten ungeduldig auf wärmeres Wetter! Denn wir wollen, dass alle Arbeiten korrekt und von absolut guter Qualität sind - damit wir unsere Hunden langfristig eine sichere Zukunft bieten können!

Ab Januar 2017 müssen wir nun leider für das alte Tierheim Gelände Miete zahlen. Damit erhöht der Eigentümer den Druck, dass Gelände schnellstmöglich zu räumen - was natürlich auch in unserem Interesse liegt damit unsere Hunde endlich in ihr neues Zuhause umziehen können! Die zusätzliche Belastung von 1.450 EUR bereitet uns großes Kopfzerbrechen, aber auch hier folgen wir einem unseren Mottos: "Frage dich nicht ob du kannst, sondern frage dich ob du willst!"

In diesem Sinne: herzlichen Dank für Eure Unterstützung! 


Our shelter employees regularly visit the construction site of the new animal home together with the construction supervisor to assess the progress, which can be seen! Meanwhile you can also imagine without the construction plan, how the new shelter will look like:)

The concrete of the first plate has been properly installed and is of very good quality. All participants are very satisfied with the results so far. Unfortunately, the first part was not 100% finished in December because of the very cold nights - it is just too cold to continue concreting.

But, of course, there is no standstill at the construction site - only other work is preferred, such as sewage trenches in the concrete and further preparation of the subsoil for the concreting.

We are very happy that everything is going so well and we are waiting impatiently for warmer weather! Because we need the shelter according to the plan and of absolutely good quality - so we can provide our dogs with a safe future...

From January 2017 onward we have to pay rent for the old animal shelter. This is to increases the pressure on us to vacate the ground as quickly as possible - which, of course, is also in our interest so that our dogs can finally move into their new homes! The extra burden of 1,450 EUR is a big headache for us, but we follow one of our mottos: "Do not ask if you can, but ask if you want!"

This being said: Thank you very much for your support!
