Last summer, Mopey was a little girl abandoned in a factory courtyard with her brother...
Sister Mopey and brother Dopey would get along super well. They were really great pups. We had them vaccinated and sterilized, and hoped and hoped that good homes would eventually line up for them
One day we heard Mopey was adopted locally by one of the guards of that factory courtyard. We were so happy about it! Then brother Dopey also got adopted by the same guard, we were told. We were happy for them... Until we heard from another guard of that factory that in fact it was lies- in reality the first guard had simply dumped siblings Mopey and Dopey into another factory courtyard with lower stray dog density. A place where Dopey unfortunately found his death... In the new factory courtyard he was seriously hit by a car; then dumped on a field and left to die (all too common a story here... Romanians dumping suffering animals in areas out of sight for their own comfort, totally disregarding animals' suffering). Hearing the real story, we just had to rescue Mopey from that unsafe factory courtyard where her brother had been seriously injured then treated like that.
Mopey recently, a super sweet little dog, soon before starting a new life in foster care in Holland
Mopey, Millie, Lion, Snickers and Mars are in Holland starting this weekend. Ready to begin the good lives they deserved all along.
We are aware adoptions won't solve the local stray animal overpopulation and their suffering. Only sterilizations and education can prevail on the long run in a community like Ploiesti with up to 8,000 homeless dogs. But sometimes we run into really tough situations; and we find ourselves unable to turn our backs to such needy dogs and pups. That's when we rescue.
