Donate with trust: Animal Webaction has been on site and checked the truthfulness of everything presented in the collection.

In Romania, this shelter no longer has any kibble for its 380 dogs, they will starve to death! 

We were at the shelter on October 6th.

Maria-Cristina has no more kibbles, the dogs are already weakened by lack and poor quality food.

The disease season is in full swing, several dogs have already died.

Evicted from her former shelter this summer, Maria-Cristina did the impossible to save these dogs....

But today she can no longer feed them, she begs us to help her.

We would like to send 4800 kg of kibble as a matter of urgency.

100% transparency guaranteed

 

 

1. Maria-Cristina no longer has any food for her 380 dogs, and is already mourning the deaths of several of them

$$$
Alice was rescued from the pound with her mother and brother a few days ago.... But she was too weak to overcome parvovirus, she died in early October

 

$$$
Cooper had also contracted parvovirus, and was unable to fight it: he died in early October

 

$$$
Old boy lived on the street where he could barely move, as his health was deteriorating... Taken to the shelter, he died at the end of September

 

$$$
Kim, Carol and Jin, siblings, died of the disease in early fall

 

###
The shelter now has 380 dogs, threatened by the lack of food, while the disease season is in full swing

 

###
The low stock of kibbles remaining at the shelter during our visit on October 6th has been gone for several days now. The few bags that Maria-Cristina managed to obtain will also be finished on October 14th

 

The arrival of autumn, rain and drops in temperature coincides with the arrival of diseases, which are much more prevalent during the cold and humid seasons at the shelter.... Parvovirus has already caused havoc among the puppies sheltered by Maria-Cristina, she knows that the worst is yet to come.

To limit the number of diseases and guarantee the best chances of survival for dogs, it is essential to ensure that everyone can eat enough, but her stock of kibble is exhausted! 

"We have food until Monday," she told us on October 11, knowing that it is impossible for her to renew the stock...

 

 

2. The dogs' health is already weakened by lack and poor quality food, they need kibbles!

###
200 kg of kibbles are needed every day to ensure that everyone eats enough, it is not always possible for Maria-Cristina to get them... "If the collection fails, we will have no choice but to feed them less, then they will kill each other"

 

###
Maria-Cristina is forced to buy low quality food, even bread, to be able to feed the dogs. A diet that affects the health of dogs by weakening their immune system

 

###
Many of them suffer from skin problems, and will not be able to face winter without kibbles! 

 

With 380 dogs to care for, 200 kg of kibbles are needed every day. The needs are too high to be met by Maria-Cristina.

Forced to limit quantities, buy low quality dry food, and use nutrient-free alternatives such as bread and pasta, she can only see the consequences of this diet on the dogs' health.

Their immune system is weakened, they suffer from skin problems and digestive disorders: they absolutely need kibbles to survive the winter! 

 

 

3. Maria-Cristina has just been expelled from her old shelter, and has to rebuild everything here, she is overwhelmed

###
Evicted from the shelter she and the dogs occupied in August, Maria-Cristina did everything possible to find a new site and guarantee the safety of all the animals

 

###
For now sheltered in packs in large collective pens, the dogs will become aggressive under the effect of hunger if Maria-Cristina cannot find kibbles: the most submissive will not survive it

 

###
The work required to prepare the shelter for the winter is enormous, Maria is crushed by debts and the work she needs to do day after day

 

This summer, Maria-Cristina was forced to move the shelter urgently, a very difficult task with 380 dogs! Because her presence bothered the authorities and the neighbours on her former land, her expulsion was ordered, only a move could save the animals.

Maria-Cristina has done her utmost to achieve this, but the last few months have been extremely challenging for her, and there is still a long way to go.

The new shelter still lacks many facilities to allow the dogs to face winter, and Maria-Cristina is under the yoke of a fine of several thousand euros following her expulsion.... It is impossible for her to buy kibble! 

 

 

4. Her many calls for help remain unanswered, the situation is critical

 

 

 

 

 

Maria-Cristina keeps sending SOS, with food as the first reason: she has been struggling for weeks to feed the dogs in the shelter.

But her requests remain without major effect.... Unable to make a stock of kibbles, she has no choice but to live from day to day, hoping to be able to buy some kibbles the next day...

 

 

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

A failed collection on Animal Webaction

 

We can take action, we have already booked a truck and pallets, but we have to pay it before October 18th.

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. Exhausted and desperate, Maria-Cristina begs us to help her

###
"We are in great difficulty because we have nearly 400 dogs, and really, we can't do anything anymore" Maria-Cristina told us, really mangled by the last few months

 

Devastated, Maria-Cristina sent a real cry of distress just a few days ago...

 

Maria-Cristina has been fighting for the animal cause for many years, with an extraordinary willingness and resistance. But the last few months have affected her deeply, to the point of making her wonder if her dedication is really worth it.

Overwhelmed by the animal suffering that permeates the country, she needs help and support at all costs to have the strength to continue her fight "At this point, I DO NOT KNOW WHAT TO DO with almost 400 dogs to care and feed every day, and almost every day new cases of sick, abandoned, injured..." she says.

 

 

7. The association that supports her joins her in asking for our intervention, her help is not enough to face this situation

The German association Hilfe Statt Trost e.V. is doing its utmost to support Maria-Cristina in her fight, but her help is no longer sufficient under the current circumstances

 


From Germany, the association Hilfe Statt Trost e.V. does everything it can to support Maria-Cristina, but is itself confronted with limited resources and impact. The help it manages to provide, including for kibbles, does not cover more than 30% of the shelter's needs.

She was the one who first contacted us to ask us to intervene before the situation deteriorates....

 

 

8. We want to send them kibbles

###
Survivor of the municipal pound, Mara is suffering from a skin disease, she needs kibbles to face the winter

 

###
Baba was rescued from the municipal pound, but suffers from a major mammary tumour that makes her vulnerable

 

###
Thrown out by her owners, Nera was taken in by Maria-Cristina. She also suffers from a skin disease, a sign that her immune system is weakened

 

###
Orbetel was rescued at the municipal pound, but retains the after-effects of old injuries, and is blind in one eye

 

###
Rescued from the pound like many other dogs at the shelter, Dana suffers from obvious demodex

 

###
Elsa is just a very young dog, rescued while she was locked in the pound. If she does not receive kibble quickly, she may succumb to diseases at the shelter

 

###
Found out on the street, Toby is still a very young puppy, for whom good kibbles are essential

 

###
Discovered with his brothers and sisters on the highway, Rex is already malnourished, while he is still a very small puppy....

 

 

9. We've had the chance to meet Maria : a strength of nature who would do anything for the dogs !

###

 

"They are my everything, I am there every day to watch over them". Every single day of every week, without exception, Maria takes care of her 380 dogs. Alone most of the time, she told us about her dismay: how to let the dogs starve in pain when none of them asked to live in so much misery?

Without ever giving up, Maria continues to fight. But the suffering and difficulties she faces on a daily basis are deeply affecting her.

"My life is no more, my life belongs to the dogs. Please, please help us.

 

10. The plight of stray dogs in Romania

Maria-Cristina's shelter is located in the mid-western part of Romania

 

 

 

11. Thanks to our logistics centre in Romania, we can intervene rapidly!
