The dogs of Ploiesti

I am trying to describe the situation of the local strays of Ploiesti, Romania, both in the local Bucov shelter and on the streets.

One of the countless pups from the local Bucov shelter

This blog is divided into several chapters:

- ABOUT PLOIESTI AND STRAYS includes general information about my city, as well as reasons why Ploiesti has countless stray dogs

- MY ARTICLES I have written in the past, with impressions about the Bucov shelter and the tough life of dogs in the streets

- IN THE NEWS features press articles regarding the strays of Ploiesti

- BUCOV POUND IN IMAGES tries to tell the story using mostly images. Warning, graphic images that may be very disturbing!

- DESPERATE NEED TO NEUTER discusses and depicts in images the importance of neutering and spaying animals to prevent the birth of unwanted litters and unmeasurable unnecessary suffering. 

- DOGS AND CATS FOR ADOPTION includes information and pictures of local strays currently available for adoption

- SUCCESS STORIES features stories with happy ending of some of the luckiest local strays.

- GOOD LOCAL VETS features vet clinics and doctors I recommend from personal experience for caring for strays, particularly spaying/neutering at good price and good quality work. 

- RESPECTABLE ORGANIZATIONS includes a list of organizations I have personally come in contact with, and which I highly respect and admire for what they do.

- WAYS TO HELP AND CONTACT INFO includes a list of things you could do to help the strays of Ploiesti, and also ways to contact me.

Thank you for reading this, and for caring about the stray dogs of Ploiesti!
