AOVA - fundraising for a dog shelter in Republic of Moldova

Organized by: Vlaicu Motrescu

The Republic of Moldova is a small country in Southeastern Europe, between Romania and Ukraine. It's a country where dogs have never been seen as pets, as parts of the family, as beings that have their own rights and feelings. They've always been seen as something necessary - for protection, for pest removal etc. It's not that Moldovans hate dogs - it's just that they've never been educated to love them. Life for a dog in Moldova is pretty harsh, even with an owner. The toughest life is lead by stray dogs though. It's a life where every day food is an achievement, not a guarantee; a life where a decent shelter is a luxury; a life where surviving the next winter is never a certain fact. Fortunately, even in Moldova one can find souls that still care about beings that are less fortunate than us. Such people were the founders of the dog shelter AOVA - a shelter that takes care of as many stray dogs as it can from the capital of Moldova, Chisinau ( a city filled with hundreds of such stray dogs). It is a noble job, but not an easy one. The hardship isn't in the physical dedication required, it's in finding the resources to keep the poor dogs alive. Because the Moldovan government is not interested in such endeavors, the shelter is severely underfunded. Being and exchange student from Moldova learning in the US for a year, I grew to love dogs. Thinking back on the situation from my country, I decided that people who are dedicated to help and improve the condition of dogs there must be helped in turn. That is why I ask you to donate as much as you can - even the smallest donation matters, in order to help save the AOVA dog shelter, in order to help save the lives of hundreds of stray dogs. For those that want to familiarize themselves with the activity of the AOVA dog shelter below I provide some links where you can do so. Certain pages are in Russian, but those that do not understand it can explore the pictures from the Russian pages, and see the conditions the dogs have to live in.Приют-AOVA-реальный-шанс-на-жизнь-134908136864618/timeline
