Help the more than 300 dogs and cats in romania with Maria Cristina

Sibiu, Romania

For Maria Cristina, a young animal rescuer in Romania and her rescued more than 300 dogs and cats, saved from death, we need help. For food and veterinary costs, for making the kennels better for the winter time.

a country in which animals have no lobby...they are simply not worth anything.The suffering of the animals is very very high.For us here in Germany and also in many other countries not imaginable which misery you will see coming to Romania.
Dogs are abandoned or brought to public “shelters"(often kill shelters),they are abused and killed.They have to live their lives in tiny,smelly,overcrowded cages in the“shelters”,often without enough food or water,often they get ill,but nobody cares.Also on the streets everywhere dogs,emaciated,starved,sick,killed by cars...and the many puppies who will never have a chance to have a family .
But it is the right of every single animal to have a good life,which drives the young animal rights activist Maria Cristina with her rescue work. 
For several years she is helping now exactly these poor souls.She cares for sick and injured animals,takes puppies from danger zones and feeds them,feeds strays in their area so that they feel at least a few times not so hungry.We try to provide as much financial support as possible and are there to help several times a year. 
Maria Cristina has currently more than 300 dogs and cats,which she has found abandoned on the street,rescued from shelters or often found directly in front of her home. 
The capacity is exceeded and it is difficult to close your eyes to further emergencies. In 2019 she had to move with all her rescued animals because residents from the village were against her work since long time and the authorities decided to evacuate the old shelter which would have meant life danger for the dogs.

A piece of land was already be bought thanks to previous donations far away from any neighbors.On this plot, Maria's dream of her own secure place for her dogs,where the animals can live in peace,became true!Here they could recover and learn to trust humans again,so that we can later find a home and a family for them. 
Thanks to donations, the piece of land was already be bought and the building of the kennels was started, 2 containers (1 used as cat house), a solar pannel and a tank was bought. Still much is missing!!
But in order to complete the shelter the kennels need to be finished to protect the dogs from rain and cold temperatures.
2 more containers are needed to store food and for the helper to stay there.
150-200 kg food is needed daily, the animals need veterinary treatments. Huge costs that we can't cover alone.
Please don't forget the dogs now!!Every small donation helps!!
