In Romania, this shelter is out of food for its 170 dogs: they will starve to death! 

Overwhelmed by the situation, Georgiana asked for our help: we went to the shelter on May 27th.

We saw an almost empty storage room, and dozens of convalescent dogs, who are too weak to cope with malnutrition.

Despite many SOSs and the active search for new partnerships, Georgiana is unable to raise funds or food.

The only association that helped her to buy kibble no longer has enough resources to continue, she asks us to help out.

We want to send 3000 kg of kibble as a matter of urgency.

If the objective is not reached, we will not be able to pay the carrier, the truck's departure will be cancelled.

100% transparency guaranteed

 

 

 

1. The food stock is almost gone: soon, all 170 dogs at the shelter will have nothing left to eat!

###
We went to the shelter on May 27th, there were only 10 bags of kibble left in the reserve. However, 8 bags are needed every day to make everyone eat their fill!

 

###
Rex was reported by villagers to Georgiana and suffered a leg injury that prevented him from moving normally. Examinations showed that a gunshot was the cause of his injury: Georgiana has already operated on Rex to try to save his leg, but this does not seem to be working: it is likely that an amputation will be necessary.

 

###
When he was rescued, Salami was barely able to move and suffered from a highly developed skin disease. Georgiana has allowed him to regain his strength and improve his condition, but Salami still has several tumours, which have not yet been operated on

 

###
Arthur is still a young puppy, found wandering and covered with several wounds. He suffers from a skin disease and is currently under treatment, he needs kibble!

 

###
Lea is only 2.5 months old, but has already been abused before Georgiana came to her aid. She suffers from a broken leg following the blows she received: already operated on a first time, she will have to undergo a new operation in a few weeks to be able to walk normally

 

###
Babuta has multiple tumours, and also suffers from heart problems. Her chances of survival remain good, and Babuta is undergoing several treatments, but she is too fragile to endure malnutrition....

 

 

###
Already a senior, Sid was caught by the dogcatchers and impounded: terrible living conditions for him, and incompatible with his disease. Sid suffers from kidney and liver problems, he is currently undergoing treatment but remains very fragile

 

###
Samira was hit by a car and simply thrown into a garbage can, probably by the perpetrator of the accident. It was a city employee who reported her presence to Georgiana. Samira has since undergone surgery, but is currently unable to walk again

 

 

###
Stray and sick, Grivei was rescued by Georgiana in early May, despite her initial unwillingness. Overwhelmed by the rescues and the lack of kibble, she had refused and thought someone else would intervene, but this was not the case... Grivei was operated on for a tumor and a leg injury. He also suffers from liver problems, his health is fragile

 

###
Foxy was rescued with a broken and totally turned over leg. Miraculously, her leg could be saved and surgically repaired, her recovery is still in progress
​​​​​

 

###
Suffering from a problem in the spine, Ares (formerly Lupusor) is unable to walk. Unfortunately, there is no operation to remedy this: he has to perform regular rehabilitation exercises, and Georgiana is looking for a cart to allow him to move again.

 

###
Reported as wandering with an injured and superinfected leg, Timo was sought by Georgiana for 3 weeks before being rescued. His leg couldn't be saved, Timo was amputated

 

###
Ylla suffers from heart problems, but also from various tumours. She is currently undergoing treatment, but her general condition is not good enough for her to be operated on at this time

 

###
Our caseworker Bianca went to meet all the dogs, and got to know them during her visit

 

For weeks, Georgiana has been struggling to find kibbles, but her actions are not working. Hopeless, she asked us to help, we went to the shelter on May 27th.

Only ten bags of food remained in the storage room, a quantity that could not even feed the 170 dogs in the shelter for 48 hours.... Since our visit, Georgiana has managed to buy a handful of bags, but there will be nothing left of them in a few days, and she will then not be able to buy any more...

On the spot, we met dozens of dogs still recovering, with a fragile health: they will not be able to face a shortage of kibbles! 

 

 

2. Without food, Georgiana can no longer rescue new dogs to the shelter: an impossible situation for her

On May 20, Georgiana mailed this call for help so that others could intervene to take care of a litter of puppies that had just appeared on the street. At the mercy of cars, they also risk being captured by dogcatchers....

 

On May 9, Georgiana tried to mobilize other volunteers... without success. Arthur, shown in this publication, is one of the last dogs rescued by Georgiana

 

"I'm overwhelmed, I run all day and I said I wouldn't take in any more dogs... but I can't be indifferent! "deplores Georgiana, who is terribly affected by the situation.

But Georgiana is alone at the shelter, and on all fronts, both on the field and in fundraising, which does not work... Faced with the extent of the difficulties, she can no longer take in new dogs, at the risk of putting all of them in danger as well! 

 

 

3.Georgiana and a partner association have been calling for help for weeks, but it doesn't work

 

On her personal page as well as that of the association, Georgiana has been posting calls for donations and calls for help for several weeks: she can't figure out why it doesn't work out.

 

Unfortunately, returns are rare and donations are also rare, Georgiana is disillusioned and no longer knows how to do it...

 

The British association that supports her relays her appeals, and also launches them on her side, but obtains little more success

 

Cartoons, events, various statements... Georgiana has already tried multiple approaches but is short of ideas

 

"I cannot run all day from morning till midnight and so exausted to have time for fundraise for food or medical costs or to promote dogs for adoption.. Its time for changhe."  Georgiana points out.

Online collections on various platforms, calls for donations on social networks, various and varied communication attempts have all already been attempted. But they are very time-consuming and yield little fruit, Georgiana does not know how to move forward without outside help. 

"I haven't even managed to raise the funds to pay for my last kibble order yet, which will be exhausted next week," Georgiana told us two days before we came.

 

4. Georgiana is doing everything she can to find help, but she is overwhelmed.​​​​​

Deeply affected by this difficult period, Georgiana needs help. With no kibbles and no hope, 170 dogs are now threatened...

 

###
Georgiana is in charge of the 170 dogs on a daily basis, but also of finding sponsors, financing, promoting dogs for adoptions... not to mention all the calls for help she receives every day for other dogs in distress, and that she can no longer honour

 

At the shelter, Georgiana has no volunteers: she often deplores the fact that the mobilization for animal protection in Romania is only present from abroad... A precious support, but one that does not help to relieve daily life

 

 

Today, Georgiana is the sole caretaker of the 170 dogs: maintenance, care, feeding, veterinary visits, rescues... not to mention the search for funding, partners, and the promotion of dogs for adoption! 

When she started her association in 2017, Georgiana tried to combine a career and volunteer work at the shelter. An impossible mission: "For a while, I kept working, but I had become a robot," she says. "Here, we have to fight for everything. It's very difficult for me, because I have to do everything on my own.

Georgiana invests as much time as she can in finding new sponsors. Unfortunately, if she manages to receive visits from foreign associations, they usually only help her to maximize adoptions...

 

 

5. If we don't reach the target, dogs won't receive any food

A failed collection on Animal Webaction

 

We can come into action, we have already booked a truck and pallets, but we have to pay it before June 04th.

If the collection fails, we will not be able to pay, the departure of the truck will be cancelled and none of the collected kibbles will be delivered...

If the collection fails, we will refund all donors.

 

 

6. Small associations support the shelter for adoptions, but none can help to buy food!

"Food friday", an initiative launched by Tommi Townsend, co-founder of the English association West Yorkshire Animals in Need to help Georgiana

 

Georgiana is very active and collaborates with many small associations abroad, both to promote her dogs for adoption, to maximize rescues, and to make the voice of animal advocates heard (she recently spoke at the European Parliament in Brussels).

Unfortunately, financial difficulties are common to many associations, and none of them can help Georgiana to buy kibble. The only association that was able to help Georgiana with the purchase of food, West Yorkshire Animal in Need, is facing terrible difficulties: 

"Fundraising in the UK has become very difficult...I think because of the Brexit uncertainty and austerity which is having an effect. The result is that WYAIN can't help as much as we used to or as much as we would like," says Tommi Townsend, President of the association. "2019 is by far the worst year we've had to face so far," she adds.

 

 

7. For them, Georgiana makes a huge difference 

Found by the roadside in March, Bella suffered from a gigantic wound, exposing half of her body. She had survived the operation, but soon after contracted parvovirus.... Against all odds, Bella not only survived, but was also adopted in Germany

 

Pheonix had very serious injuries to her front legs when she was rescued earlier this year: it is impossible to know if an accident caused it or an act of abuse. One of the legs could be saved, the other was amputated. Adopted since then, Pheonix now wears a prosthesis and enjoys total mobility.

 

Violently thrown against a wall when he was just a puppy, Rio had to be amputated of a paw, and had a difficult recovery.... He has since been successfully adopted into a family 

 

Taken to the vet for euthanasia, Lipici was paralyzed from head to toe... Formerly abused, he also suffers from deafness, his ailments are probably all due to the blows he has suffered... Georgiana took him in, had him operated on, and accompanied his rehabilitation, which is still in progress: Lupici is now able to move again

 

Georgiana has been rescuing all dogs, whatever their condition, whatever the medical costs involved, or the difficulty of their recovery, for several years. Without her, these dogs would have no other chance.

Thanks to all her efforts to develop new partnerships, Georgiana also has a very high adoption rate, including for disabled dogs: that is why we must help her to continue! 

 

8. The plight of stray dogs in Romania

 

 

9. Georgiana put her life on hold to save Fagaras' dogs

###
Georgiana at the shelter

 

Her shelter in Fagaras dates back only to 2017, but her commitment to animal protection can be counted in many more years now. Georgiana's love for the dogs in her shelter is visible to the naked eye, and emanates from each of the interactions we observed during our visit.

However, the sacrifices are many, and the daily life is very difficult for her at the shelter: 

"My life is a mess, I have no family, I have nothing, my life is dedicated to dogs. I work very hard. I could have had "a good life", but I refused, and I don't regret anything, I'm happy with them."

Combative and optimistic, Georgiana impressed us with her moral strength: 

"You can of course be discouraged, think that nothing changes, but if I didn't do what I do, there would be three times more dogs on the streets. And I met fantastic people, which is essential in the face of all this suffering: otherwise, it is possible to reach a point where you no longer believe in the human being."

 

10. What will the 3000 kg collected be used for ? 

This collection is organized by the Saving Orphaned Souls association. The 3000 kg of kibble collected will be delivered to Georgiana to feed the 170 dogs hosted at the shelter.
