1 female dog and her offspring can produce 67000 puppies in 6 years.
Only in 2012, ROLDA sterilized 435 dogs, from which 80% females. Imagine how many lives we saved together!
Between 24-28 June a team of vet and technicians from FPCC organization, founded by Robert Smith- one of the few animal people which I know,since before ROLDA was founded, which helped me all the way he could and for whom I have a sincere respect.
The FPCC team impressed me with their professionalism and dedication. Working from morning until late in the evening, being assisted by the ROLDA employees, the team had great result at the end of the blitz-campaign: 181 dogs sterilized, reducing the number of street dogs by preventing the born of hundreds of new puppies.
Dogs like Cara (read Cara story) are safer because we, together, invest into their future.
My special thanks go to each and all ROLDA supporters that contributed generously and made the organization of this event possible. We aim to organize the next event in September or October, while the weather is still good and our goal is 350 dogs to be sterilized. I am hopeful that ROLDA supporters will continue to sustain our efforts. Every donation of 20US$ helps us to sterilize a dog.
After working with FPCC team and after meeting the great people that volunteered at ROLDA during May and June, I am hopeful that I can still find people willing to respect the same values as me, to see the good work that ROLDA does for Galati animals, people with the same hopes for the future, same strategy about shelter management. Working as a colleague, side by side, with other charities is difficult everywhere, but in Romania is almost impossible. I feel hopeful and fortunate to discover some great people to work with, asking nothing in return but sharing the same purpose: helping each dog to have a better, safer life!
