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 a young animal rights activist in Valcea 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 380 dogs and puppies,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.But to this great worry came a much bigger problem ... Residents from the village and neighbors are against her work since long time and the authorities decided to evacuate the old shelter 11.8.2019!

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 (but not finished), 2 containers (1 as cat house), a solar pannel and a tank was bought. Still much is missing!! 
But in order to complete them for the coming winter time,Maria needs our help!
She needs dog houses, additionall protection for winter time and the water is still a huge problem.

Please don't forget the dogs now!!Every small donation helps!!
