After a year of research to find the right charity that helps out in Romania, I was lucky to find Romania Animal Rescue (aka Animal Spay Neuter International). After getting to know Nancy and learning more about the charity, I joined as a volunteer and shortly after went to Romania and participated in several spayathons. Words cannot express the hard work, dedication and passion this charity’s vets, vet techs and local staff/volunteers have. Also the incredible positive impact that RAR has in Romania (and other impoverished countries such as Bulgaria, Greece, Dominican Republic) is due to the key focus areas of the charity: Spay/Neuter and Animal Care. These two key programs, especially Spay/Neuter, is key in preventing thousands of unwanted puppies/kittens being born on the streets of Romania and other impoverished areas that the charity helps in. This charity does SO MUCH with SO LITTLE, it is amazing!!! This is the BEST Charity every and I am FOREVER part of it!
This organization is the BEST PLACE TO PUT YOUR DONATIONS FOR ANIMALS. I have known its founder Nancy Janes for 20÷ years as donor, volunteer & board member. Nancy eats, sleeps and breathes to help animals. ALL OF YOUR MONEY (save accounting and audit costs) goes to help the animals! Nancy takes NO salary. I cannot stress enough what ANGELS Nancy and her husband Rory are. PLEASE DONATE WHATEVER YOU CAN TO THIS SUPERB ORGANIZATION.
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 provides the highest standard of veterinary care (with a focus on spay/neuter programs) to homeless animals and those belonging to low income owners. Their willingness to travel by car/train/boat or any other means, to reach remote and poor areas of Romania, is proof of their dedication to save lives and improve animal wellbeing. I had the pleasure to witness one of their spay/neuter campaign first hand and I was impressed by their professionalism and hard work! Romania needs RAR!
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 .
What is RAR? A miracle that has happened for Romania.
This organization of wonderful people with gold heart live and devote their lives for animal welfare. For many years they have crossed tireless the whole country for spay and neuter stray dogs and cats, for help animal in need.
It s hard to imagine the disaster that would have been without their work! When someone asks for help they never refuse any help.
Respect and admiration for Lady Nancy and Mr. Rory Janes,for exceptional veterinarians,foreign and romanian volunteers,for all donors and whole team for your dedication and work ! God bless you!
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.
Well prepared, honest, 100% dedicated to animals and a careful team !!! ☆♡☆♡☆
They are the best, working with them since 2012 and we are very pleased, helped us every time we needed it. Regardless of what anyone says we will work with them because they are the best.
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!
Why Romania Animal Rescue?Because they are the only ones who wander the country to help ordinary people to s/n their dogs and cats,to help people who can not afford to pay for this surgery,because as we all know salarys in Romania are very low (200 euro).
Why Romania Animal Rescue?Because they put in first place the animal welfare,sterile working and very professional for amazing results,tiny incision and fast recovery.
Why Romania Animal Rescue?Because they can and they want to help , and we ought to support them,so more than 50 000 s/n to turn into 500,000 s/n and abandoned animals no longer exist in this country.
Please donate to Romania Animal Rescue and help they to help animals!!!!
I've supported this organization since it was founded. They do AMAZING work!!! There is no organization in Romania that can get close to the amount of spay/neuter RAR has done. THanks to RAR, THOUSANDS of unwanted animals have been prevented from being born.
RAR & ASNI - An amazing collaboration of animal welfare and cruelty prevention in its finest form. As are the team of professional vets and vet techs! These two charities are performing miracles in the prevention of unwanted strays across Romanian and the rest of the world! I have worked as a volunteer on many occasions, the work ethics of the entire team are simply the best i have ever seen! The honesty and meticulous approach to everything within charity, is of the highest standard, and is a reflection of their ongoing achievements & success! KEEP ON DOING THE AMAZING WORK!!
RAR/HAH/ASNI do an outstanding work in Romania and many other countries. I have volunteered and was very impressed and in awe at the perfection of the surgeries. The team is highly dedicated and is relentlessly bringing awareness to the problem of strays by also distributing free brochures. I have rarely met a charity that works at that level of dedication and efficiency.
It is an honour and a privilege to say I have just actively taken part for the third time in a spay campaign with RAR. The standard of work, the care shown the animals and the respect for others is second to none. RAR are changing the attitude towards not only sterilisation but the general wellbeing of animals up and down Romania. They are without a doubt carrying out the most important work within animal welfare.
As an active supporter and volunteer of RAR I am now in Romania participating in my third campaign I can only say that this organisation is the best I have known with there priority always being the welfare of the animals. I feel so very proud to be part of RAR.
As an active supporter of RAR I have volunteerd at various s&n campaigns and have seen with my own eyes the amazing work the RAR team does.
Besides providing free s&n and surgery for homeless animals and animals of poor owners they also provide education as to how ppl should take care of their animals and train other vets in their operating techniques.
RAR/ASNI is now building a clinic near Bucharest to be able to help even more animals. Keep up the good work!
As a member of Romania Animal I can personally attest to work we do. Never have I been with a charity so focused on animal welfare. Our charity is one of the finest charities in the world with the finest integrity.
