From personal experience I highly respect and admire the following animal welfare organizations, some of them having helped the Ploiesti strays.

International organizations:

Dogs Trust, UK
I have done research for two months at one of the Dogs Trust centers in the UK and was terribly impressed with the quality of the care they provided to their dogs. My friends and I (all animal welfare students and graduates from several countries) all agreed this Dogs Trust center was by far the best dog shelter we had ever seen. Amazing example for us all.

Romania Animal Rescue, Inc., US
This US-based charity has spayed and neutered over 16,000 strays all over Romania in only a few years. Romania Animal Rescue has sponsored hundreds of sterilizations of strays in Ploiesti and has also provided educational brochures for our Educational Program.

Romania Animal Aid, UK
This organization facilitates adoptions of Romanian strays to the UK.

SterilizeDogs, NL
SterilizeDogs has massively supported our Ploiesti Neutering Challenge and has been a highly valuable educational help for us all along the way. They also help with adoptions of our dear strays.  

Help4Strays, NL
We just love Help4Strays! They provide ongoing support for our Ploiesti Neutering Challenge and are also helping with adoptions of our stray pups in Holland.

Dog's Wish, NL
Dog's Wish is a new organization in Holland that supports sterilizations of Ploiesti strays as well as other projects for the dogs and pups in our care. They have also represented us at foreign dog events in Holland.

K-9 Angels, UK
The wonderful K-9 Angels have helped us a great deal towards sterilizations of needy strays. We hope for a long and productive collaboration!

HondenBrokkenMakers, NL
This wonderful Dutch organization is a big supporter of sterilization campaigns as means to control stray animal overpopulation. They also provided much needed aid for Ploiesti strays. Great people with a great mindset for tackling the stray animal overpopulation!

ETN e.V., DE
We have received from ETN e.V. much needed aid for the dogs in our care, aid such as food and water bowls, harnesses, car seat covers.

National organizations:

Vier Pfoten Romania
They came for three times in Ploiesti, spaying and neutering hundreds of animals for free every time they visited. Very dedicated staff members whom I have had the honor to meet, an from whom I have learned a lot.

GIA - Group Initiative for Animals
Very committed to animals, they facilitate adoptions, perform spay/neuter campaigns and get involved in many rescue missions. They also perform outreach and even discuss the stray dog overpopulation and humane and proven ways to contain it at international conferences and for the Romanian government.

FPCC - Foundation for the Protection of Stray Dogs
FPCC solved the stray dog problem through systematic free spay/neutering campaigns in Oradea, Romania. Now the FPCC team does affordable spay/neutering surgeries and part of the team is based in the larger Prahova County. They have provided hundreds of quality sterilizations as part of the Ploiesti Neutering Challenge.

  1. Thanks for the update, and for all the help you've given these sad abandoned animals. I'll try to help out with a donation occasionally. Later.
