Please help us for the 300 dogs and cats in Marias private shelter

Sibiu, Romania

For Maria Cristina, a young animal rescuer in Romania and her private shelter with more than 300 dogs and cats, rescued before death, we need help. The Shelter must be finished and the dogs need food.

About this project

ROMANIA...
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 more than 300 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!
 
ALL DOGS HAD BEEN IN LIFE DANGER!!

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. 
BUT ALONE WE CAN NOT DO THIS !! WE NEED YOUR HELP !! 
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 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 kd food is needed daily, the dogs need veterinary treatments. Huge costs that we can't cover alone.
  
Please don't forget the dogs now!!Every small donation helps!!
