Join us in a virtual journey throughout Romania. Here you will find a bit of history, a sparkle of good old Romanian humor, but most of all you will find a great cause: RAR's project to spay or neuter as many animals as they can. Romania's animals need you!
Târgovişte – the true story
Târgovişte is a place not
far from the capital, in southern Romania, filled with history and meaning. It
holds a very beautiful park which is a tribute to the old royal residence and
capital of Ţara Românească (a part of Romania before the unification). For over
three centuries, Târgovişte was the most important landmark in terms of
economy, politics and culture in that part of Romania.
beautiful tower, called “Chindia Tower” was built by Vlad the Impaler, the
famous Dracula, who lived and ruled in Târgovişte and not in Transilvania, as
the Irish novelist Bram Stooker has everyone to believe. He had a very troubled
life and he was known for his unforgiving nature and unorthodox methods of punishment.
Since then, the local
authorities have embraced a different legal framework, but have yet to work on
resolving the stray dogs’ issue, as everywhere else in Romania. This is where
the local community, represented by Asociaţia Sufleţel Târgovişte, stepped in
and asked for Romania Animal Rescue’s
help. Thanks to the generosity of RAR’s donors, the veterinary team was able to
spay or neuter 41 animals last week; for those animals, the world is a better
place and we hope we can help more and more animals to feel that way. It was
not the first campaign in Târgovişte, RAR has actually managed to help 360
animals so far.
was a nice day, in the middle of nature with nice people and lovely dogs.

Luckily for him, this cute
male dog with a severe case of Sticker tumor was neutered by the RAR veterinary
team. They also helped the local NGO to get a hold of the cytostatic he
Over the years, we have seen
a lot of dogs suffering from Sticker tumors, this being another downside to
such a large mass of fertile dogs roaming and breeding uncontrollably on the
streets. People who refuse to neuter their own male dogs and allows them to
breed with stray female dogs should take into consideration that they are
putting their lives at risk.
Big or small, white or
brown, we are all trying to find our place into this world. If you love animals
and want to help make a difference for the helpless ones, join our cause! Help
make something durable and efficient, prevent a life from being wasted in vain!
