In no other country in Europe are poverty and need as great as in Moldova. With an average salary of Euro 140.00 people live on the border to poverty and you can imagine what this means for the animals! Saving animal life in Moldova, giving dogs and cats the feeling that they are loved and wanted and have a right to their lives: that is our goal in this project.
We support a partner project in which the volunteers manage to maintain a safe home with the bare essentials.
Moldova is a country where the animals are poisoned, slaughtered and the puppies drowned. Veterinarians work with the simplest means and can only provide minimal help due to lack of technology such as ultrasound, x-rays, etc.
By donating materials and equipment we support the local veterinarian in her practice, which lacks the necessary basic equipment to save lives.
Update March 2020
A further supply of materials reached Moldova in February. Due to the lockdown because to the Corona Pandemic, no further deliveries can take place at the moment. We are working in the background collecting and sorting the material donations.
Update January 2020
During her visit at the beginning of January, our Margot noticed that a lot has happened at our vet's shelter in Moldova during the last 6 months. There are new boxes and retreats for the dogs and cats.
Furthermore, Margot was able to hand over the first brochures of the PEP (PET Education Program) for school lessons to our vet! We are very happy that we can change the awareness of the next generations about animal protection and rights of our fellow creatures!
Update December 2019
During our neutering campaign in Romania the Moldavian veterinarian visited us to exchange information with our veterinarians of the University Clinic Vienna. On this occasion we could give her many urgently needed medicines and materials for her practice. And also, one of the donated blood sugar devices. The doctor was very pleased!
A veterinarian donated an X-ray machine to us. The manufacturing company Gierth kindly checked and serviced it free of charge. Now we are looking for larger practice premises together with the Moldovan doctor. And check next donated equipment. The originally almost empty practice is gradually expanding.
Since new project "PET Education Program" (PEP) for children is also started in Moldova. First lessons in primary schools, carried out by the veterinarian, have been very well received. And already show changes: The children bring more and more street animals to the doctor's shelter.
In order to discuss things on site and to push things forward, Margot will make another short visit in January 2020. We will keep you up to date!
Update September 2019
We were able to send 50 bathtubs to the animal rights activists, which were already in use - made possible by your donation! Thank you!
The veterinarian has already received her first donation: Consumables and especially equipment like cautery and sterilizer, which are in full use since the first day!
