I have been associated with Romania Animal Rescue for years as a donor, volunteer and board member. The people involved with this organization, from our President, Nancy, our veterinary staff and our volunteers are extremely dedicated to our mission. RAR is truly made up of people who are passionate about animal welfare and who share the same vision. RAR is fiscally responsible while at the same time responsive to the needs of animals and their people. I am proud to be a part of such a tremendous organization.
I am very happy to support RAR on a monthly basis! They run a transparent organisation for everyone to see their goal and their work. Every month I have a thank you note for the money I send, and I feel like being part of the team.
I do belive that the most efficient way to reduce pain and suffering for dogs/cats in Romania is spay and neuter, so the philosophy of RAR corresponds with mine.
Also: GREAT people, and they update frequently!
Romania Animal Rescue is an organisation dedicated to animal welfare and well-'being.
Either through the thousands of spay/neuter surgeries done each year (with the keyhole technique), the countless pro bono clinic cases, constant veterinary training and people education, the sole purpose of their members, and volunteers, is improving the quality of life for all animals.
They truly are a top Charity in the Veterinary field!
An exceptional organisation, with dedicated, devoted staff who go that extra mile for each and every animal. Highly trained Veterinary Doctors and Veterinary Technicians, vets are trained in precision keyhole surgery for sterilisations, eliminating the need for an extensive recovery period, and less trauma for the animal, physically and emotionally. The Center of Hope (Romania Animal Rescues Veterinary Hospital near Bucharest) is a very modern hospital with the latest high tech equipment including x-rays,ultrasound scanner and a intensive care unit with specialised machines to provide fluids automatically to seriously ill animals.The staff team is lead by Dr Aurelian Stefan and the founder is Nancy Janes together they drive the charity forwards to more and more unlimited possibilities in modern animal welfare and care.
A Pioneering charity for Romanian dogs, their excellence as a team of veterinarians, vet techs and volunteers is only surpassed by their sheer devotion and love of animals. Staff go above and beyond the call of duty when an animal is in need. They now have a state of the art Veterinary hospital where their supremacy of skills can flourish without boundaries when funds allow. I have been a part of this charity for many years and i can honestly say i am truly honoured to be so. Thankyou to an amazing team of people for setting the baseline for veterinary care in Romania, and teaching so many others their skills and knowledge.
Thank you so much for your work. Spay and neuter campaigns are the most important work we can do to stop the suffering of strays. I hope you get a lot of supporters and donors to go on with your animal rescue projects.
The hardest working charity. Dedicated. Professional. They’ve spayed and neutered over 82,000 animals and have helped tens of thousands of suffering animals through the Homeless Animals Hospital program. Can’t say enough about their devotion to change the way animals are treated in Romania. Bless them
This extraordinary organization is filled with staff and volunteers that truly have deep love, commitment and compassion for dogs and cats. Love, commitment and compassion are essential in order to see on a daily basis the horrible pain and suffering the animals endure and do something about it. They are hands-on in preventing animals from being born into awful conditions by spaying and neutering dogs and cats. They also help every single animal that comes through their doors. Their dedication to Romanian dogs, cats, puppies and kittens cannot be measured. I am honored to help Romania Animal Rescue monetarily in order to be a small part of their life-saving work.
I love the care given to Romania's homeless animals. Potential population is reduced and emergency care is given by a dedicated team. Inspiring.
Romania Animal Rescue, Inc., (RAR), is extremely experienced in organizing sterilization campaigns - until now RAR's "Dream Teams" has sterilized over 82 000 dogs and cats!
I have been fortunate to have been able to help with supporting their spay&neuter activities via Kuono organization in Finland.
Supporting RAR's activities we can always be sure that our donations are directed to the right place at the right time.
An amazing group of people with an extremely important mission.
Best Romanian non profit organization. They do amazing work for abandoned, neglected and abused animals. I am so grateful for the work they do!
This organization has done the most and best work in my country Romania, many spayings on a regular basis also in many spaying campaigns in towns and villages,they do a lot of free animal care for pets of the poor people also for strays,they have 2 very skilled vets Aurelian Stefan and Petrisor Stefan who train younger vets,they also educate people and schoolchildren to take good care of animals,RAR also provide food for many shelters in Romania,they(RAR,the vets and the donors) are the best!We thank them very much!
After being deployed go Romania and experiencing the harsh reality that Romania has a huge dogs and cats over population problem my coworker and I immediately wanted to help. RAR helped us save 4 dogs off of base and get in contact with a rescue to help more. We were able to participate by volunteering for a spay-a-thon and it was the most humbling experience. Aurelian and his team care so much about the animals they treat and the people who come in without funds to cover costs. They had two emergencies come in while there and still were able to spay over 30 dogs and 10 cats. The dedication and love these guys show to each and every patient is heart warming.
Being a collaborating vet, I had the opportunity to know in depth RAR’s work along the years. Out of tremendous hard work and vision, RAR has become the organization that set up the gold standard in management of high-quality mass spay/neuter campaigns in Romania, that all other organizations strive to achieve.

This organisation is outstanding. Romania is a wonderful country - but has huge amounts of desperate poverty and deprivation.
The team isnt just about helping animals in need. By helping the animals they help the people. They educate, they inform, and they help people who are struggling financially to keep their pets, and to prevent more animals being born that cannot be accommodated, and often cant be afforded.
The team goes to the people. It goes to all who need help, without judgment or condemnation, but instead brings hope and love, and raises people up.
It may look like its only an animal charity - but it is far more. Its a humanitarian charity.
Thoses people are amazing. They have an immense heart and the willpower to help these poor littles helpless animals. They have save an treat so many abused and neglected animals. They also teach the population on how to prevent the surpopulation of dogs and cats and they have free clinics to sterilized dogs and cats in poor villages in Romania. They are a wonderful nonprofits organization and they are really changing the world one animal at the time.

Incredible integrity, passion, and devoted service to love.
I had the great good fortune to meet Dr. Aurelian Stefan and Nancy Janes several years ago. They and everyone else working with RAR are some of the most dedicated, hardworking, compassionate people I've ever known. Dr. Stefan digs in, with his team, and does extensive spay and neuter programs all over Romania and beyond. He and his brother have managed to build a wonderful new clinic, where they help so many animals, including those who cannot afford veterinary care. Dr.Stefan, as busy as he is, still manages to keep a vibrant presence on social media, which in turn helps educate so many people, and also helps bring in funds from multiple countries to keep his compassionate programs going. Romania is one of the most difficult countries for a dog to live in. There are so many strays, and there are also many people there who do not care for animals. In this very challenging environment, Dr. Stefan, his staff, and Nancy Janes still never give in to hopelessness or depression. They go on, day after day, fighting the good fight, with all the strength and resources they have. I have long admired RAR, and have been a donor to their cause, ever since I met them.
Exceptionally dedicated team of people! Every penny is spent on the animals and making sure they get the care, love and attention they need. The staff go above and beyond and not only help the animals, but also the local people who cannot afford the treatment they need. Great stuff guys, very proud of you indeed. Continue doing what you do x
RAR is doing outstanding work in Romania. they help spay.neuter homeless animals so they are not born in a world where they get poisoned or shot by the authorities.
They also have spay/neuter action in several other countries who asked for help.
They also support an animal hospital where animals get treated for free, many of the people in Romania are very poor and couldn't get help for their injured animals.
My heart broke when I saw the damaged and disgarded dog population when I visited Romania in 2017. I wanted to learn more and figure out how I could be part of the solution. In my research I found RAR. I even accompanied them on a "Spayathon" May 2019. I rejoice in saying that they neutered approx 10,000 animals last year. That means hundreds of thousands not born to suffer. I also see the compassionate care of sick and injured dogs, some homeless that are taken from the streets, and some loved pets of people who cannot afford expensive treatments, neutering, and vaccinations. The RAR team is professional and compassionate; they do so much every day to make a difference and they will make great strides in eliminating the very sad homeless animal problem in and around Romania.
Every time that I asked them to help with free sterilizations in our region they helped...now,over 2500 dogs and cats are sterilized,we stoped so many unwated births,we stoped the suffering.I hope that this is the begining of a change in the life of animals and also in the life of the humans...By sterilizing 1 we save 100!!!
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!!!!
After traveling in Romania in 2005 and experiencing the incredible number of hungry street dogs, I returned home and searched for rescue groups. I was surprised to find a Romanian rescue group in Livermore, California and immediately made a phone call.
I have watched the then, somewhat small, organization grow and constantly accomplish more with each year. I cannot speak more highly of this wonderful organization and the people involved.
Passion, dedication, professionalism!
Great team, great leader, great job!
Love and thank them!
Wonderful work always striving to do their best under difficult circumstances and ever evolving too
We volunteered with the campaign in October 2018, in Sliven Bulgaria.
It was an amazing event from start to finish.
When we first entered the pop up clinic we could not believe how well everything was prepared and thought out. The cages for the animals were beautifully lined with cosy blankets and even foil wrap for the cats. The dog beds were plush and cosy, at the end of the day they looked very tempting for a lie down!
The whole operation was ran so smoothly, it was clear everyone knew what had to be done and how best to execute it. The vets and vet techs were incredible, their work was amazingly tidy, quick and they showed compassion, care and love to each and every animal. All animals were checked in and out much like a hotel, their travel cages were cleaned and made cosy for their journey home. An incredible lunch was provided for all staff and volunteers. It was amazing experience and we can't wait to do it all over again!
We volunteered at the campaign in Sliven and it was an amazing experience! It was great to see so many people dedicated to helping the local animals, looking forward to helping again next year!
I already spyed 2 of my dogs with Doctor Stefan's help. Everything went very smooth and easy for me and my dogs. They recovered quite fast after the procedure.
The support Mr. Stefan gave me, made a world of a difference as he reassured me and made sure all my concerns are explained and removed by facts
I have known Nancy Janes, RAR and Dr. Aurelian Stefan for over 7 years. I have volunteered twice and I was so impressed that I decided to spend 3 months at The Homeless Animal Centre in 2017-2018. It is a top notch Centre and charity. The team is amazingly dedicated and highly trained. Their compassion cannot be expressed in words, I had the privilege to witness it on a daily basis for 3 months. No Animal is turned down, each Animal is welcomed with love and compassion. Each Animal is special!
I sponsor RAR with no reservation as they have made not only a difference in Animal welfare but also RAR has inspired so many people and changed them.

Great team ,dedicated people and very hard working.
Great team. They helped me a lot by spaying some stray cats.
They are doing a wonderful, professional work for homeless animal in Romania. I should say titanic work because in a country where, unfortunately, kindness and tolerance are very rare, RAR and Aurelian Stefan are trying hard, day and night, to help the poor souls in need and danger. I try to help them every month because I trust them, I see the results of their's work and with them I still have hope that world will become a bearable place for animals. In same time, they constantly educate peoples to neuters their animals as best solution to stop all this suffering. So, congratulations and my respect for all your work!
Best people in rescue in Romania, selfless countless hours dedicated to saving innocent souls
Thank you for being you
This charity has worked miracles in Romania. Conducting almost 100k spay/neuters since inception has drastically reduced the street dog population. Also, they have worked hard to educate the people on taking care of or animals. One amazing women from the USA started this organization that is now recognized all over and they are being asked by other countries to come and help with their spay and neutering. Amazing work !
I volunteered with this organization at the campaign in Măcin last year and I was really impressed by their standards of care for animals. They are very good. This year they spayed 2 of my dogs and 2 cats and they were again very good. They are doing a wonderful job and I hope they continue to come to our part of Romania because we need them so much.
I volunteered at one of their spay/neuter campaigns last month and I was impressed by the team’s professionalism, their dedication to saving animals and their passion for their work. They also fixed five of my cats and two stray dogs and did a wonderful job. They are the best and we need more campaigns in our region of Romania.
Volunteered for a spayathon this charity organized - very impressed with the professionalism and efficiency shown by vets and techs.
Great working relationship with the local ngo that helped get the nearby
pet owners involved in the event.
Great rescue organization helping were help is needed the most. Thank you.
You are the best!..........thank you for beeing !!!!!!!!
Thank you for being, the world would be better if there were more people like you!
Romania Animal Rescue is a very professional team, very kind with all the animals. I was volunteer last year and was a pleasure to work with this people. I brought to them five of my cats and all of them are now very fluffy and happy.
When I met the RAR team it was clear right from the beginning. This is the solution and I want to help. Since a few year I am a volunteer of RAR and I joined a few thousands of spays far. The focus of this charity is the solution of the issue. Right on the spot. Education, Vet training, spay and neuter in high scale. It is still a honor being a brick in the RAR wall.
I know the team of RAR since 3 years and every single meeting with them is inspiring and motivating to continue the work. I live in Romania and I can manage it once in a while to bring some strays to castration. The team is amazing, professional, loving and caring. Please support the team and the work to reduce the number of stray dogs and cats.
We appreciate your great services!
We value your dedication.
A dedicated group who have led the way in improving standards in animal welfare in Romania and also places they have been throughout the world.
I have known RAR and it's founder Nancy Janes, for 15 years as donor, volunteer and board member. THIS IS THE BEST ANIMAL Rescue, spay neuter, educational organization I have ever known. Almost 100% of donations go directly for the animals. Nancy eats, lives and breathes for the animals. She is also the kindest, most loving person i know. I would urge EVERYONE to nominate this WONDERFUL organization!!
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.
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!
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!
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.
