Romania has a huge problem of homeless dogs. It’s common place to see dogs injured, sick, abused and unfortunately tortured on the streets of Romania. Dogs are caught inhumanely by the public authorities, thrown into vans, transported to the shelter where they are imprisoned with other unfortunate strays. No assessment is made as to which dogs are contained together. Timid dogs are often attacked and killed by large, aggressive dogs. If they escape this fate but no one claims them, they are often mercilessly killed by the shelter employees, in the most brutal way. In Romania, stray dogs are a pest, a problem to be disposed of. We at ROLDA say this is unacceptable and we are working tirelessly to end this horrendous situation. Full stop.
