This is an amazing charity. I have seen firsthand their team at work on spay and neuter procedures and they give each animal the highest quality care. They really care about solving the problem of overpopulation in Romania and other developing countries. They work with local rescues and community representatives to run spay/neuter in villages and towns that don't have vet services. This is unusual in Romania as groups tend not to work together. I would highly recommend anyone who wants to volunteer at a spayathon, it's an experience you won't forget! You can be guaranteed donations will be put to good use by this charity!

Sadies Stray Dog Rescue have been working with RAR /ASNI for the past couple of years . We wouldn't consider running our Spay/Neuter campaigns with anyone else. Its not just about how professional and caring they are but also about how they become friends and even after the activity we speak and work together to continue to improve the lives of dogs in Romania . Our next Spayathon is end of May 17 and we will be working with the RAR/ASNI team again. We collect donations for our activities directly and through RAR and are always so impressed by the " can do" attitude of the team there . I can not recommend them enough .

Romania animal Rescue is THE BEST ORGANIZATION I HAVE EVER KNOWN. Its founders, Nancy and Rory, live and breathe for the animals. They have dedicated their lives to the cause. Every cent possible that you donate goes to helping the animals. I know them personally, and am intimate with their work. If you want to help the animals, there is NO BETTER ORGANIZATION THAN THIS ONE!

RAR is one of the most serious and dedicated organization, with a long established involvement in the Romanian animal welfare. They run continuous spay and neuter projects all over Romania, with long term effects on the desperate situation of stray animals. Besides the spay and neuter, education is very important , both for children, adults and veterinarians. The medical team is one of the top medical team, who provides superior medical care to dogs and cats, at a very high standard. So we are grateful to RAR, Nancy and Rory Janes, the team and volunteers, who dedicate so much to Romanian animals and so much has been achieved in the years RAR has activated in Romania. Thank you, Romania Animal Rescue!

As part of the organizing team of the next big spay/neuter campaign sponsored by RAR I am looking forward to another very succesful event .
For the last five years the RAR sponsored s/n campaigns have provided the most necessary help needed for the activity of Craiova animal protection volunteers .
Being among those who know RAR activity first hand I would like to say that it is not only the numbers ( although they are already staggering ) that recommend it but the whole package of high quality professional work of the medical team , the enthusiastic atmosphere and the special human touch provided by the foreign volunteers.
Follow RAR activity as it it worth to be better known and understood and definitely worth of much more support as it serves with excellency a great cause .

RAR and ASNI are the only animal welfare organisations that I REALLY TRUST. I had the honor to meet most of them and see them at work. Truly dedicated human beings, helping whenever and where ever they can. They are brilliant professionals, amazingly friendly people and they are spending their own private time to help Romania strays and animal supporters. They are making huge efforts for spaying campaigns, for educating people, for making things better. Unfortunately they are doing the job Romanian authorities should and don't because of lack of interest. I am and will support RAR and ASNI whenever I'll be able to. It was a pleasure to meet them and I am thrilled they are continuing their work.

I have been working with RAR / ASNI since 2010, taking part and organizing spay / neuter campaigns and also running an educational program for schools for 1 year. RAR has proved along the years to be that charity that helps impoverished people and their pet companions, that amazing charity working as hard as possible to prevent cruelty and abandonment, going places where others wouldn't believe was possible. Thanks to RAR / ASNI Romanian stray dogs and cats will have their top-performing Homeless Animals Hospital, a brilliant project meant to alleviate suffering, to improve the welfare of our dogs and cats, a center of outstanding vet services provided by professional compassionate vets, a beacon of light for all us witnessing the plight of our beloved animals! I am grateful and very proud to be part of the RAR / ASNI team, thus being able to really help the Romanian animals! Respect to the entire RAR / ASNI team of vets, techs, nurses, volunteers and program coordinators, to all RAR / ASNI amazing donors and supporters!
