#GiveHope to animals that have no one else
Some while ago, the children from local school have asked for our help to sterilize their dogs because they now understand the importance of sterilization and do not want to see their pets abandoned or killed. It is important to know that according to law, all pets in Romania must be neutered, microchipped and registered. Failure to do so results in fines between €1,100 and €2,200.
Most pet owners cannot afford to sterilize, microchip and register their pets, so some choose to abandon their pets to avoid the fines.
It was a big moment of joy for ROLDA to interact with children who asked our help for their animals!
ROLDA organized various contests (literature, painting) in partnership with local schools and welcome visits from children and their teachers at the small shelter, where they meet the dogs.
Some of the ROLDA programs that address to children are:
Printing and distributing in disadvantaged rural areas a coloring book to help educate children on animal welfare.
The coloring book is backed up online by “ABC for kids” a web section in Romanian, where we offer guidance to kids on how to look after their furry buddies responsibly and to offer them (under adult supervision) the correct assistance and care.
“Speak Toto’s Language” is one of the few brochures we created to educate people (especially children) about dogs’ body language.
