Objective Remi Moldova Foundation
The objective of the Remi Moldova Foundation (RM) is to give a better life to stray dogs in Moldova, the poorest country in Europe. The foundation tries to do so with medical care and adoption, but the main line of operation is sterilization and vaccination against rabies.
Sterilizing stray dogs attacks the problem at the heart of the matter. A non-sterilized female dog has eight puppies as an average, twice a year. Those puppies will also be stray animals and after a year they will have puppies of their own, and so on.
Although Remi Moldova has sterilized several hundreds of stray dogs in Moldova, non-sterilized dogs are the large majority. The main reason for this is that dog-owners simply cannot afford to have their pets sterilized. So recently RM started to offer free dog-sterilization and distributed an educational booklet for children on the subject of dog-sterilization and its importance.
RM operates under the CNVR principle (Collect, Neuter, Vaccinate & Return). The World Health Organisation has decided that this principle is the only effective method for coping with the stray-dogs problem.
RM works with local vets. They are responsible for collecting the animals to be sterilized.
At the animal hospital the dog will have an anti-flea-and-tick-treatment. The next day the dog will be treated. During its stay the dog will have medical care and will be fed. The dog will also be labelled with a special earring, with its own unique administrative number.
Neuter, vaccination against rabies
At the moment the all-inclusive costs of the treatment of a male dog is € 23, for a female dog € 30. The rabies shots are also included.
After treatment the dog will be returned to its original location. This is important for the continuation of its life.
The dogs are safeguarded against municipal anti-stray-dogs programs by the earrings they wear. There is a lot of local publicity about the RM-program, with information on local vets and the free medical care that 'our' dogs are entitled to. And it works!
The Remi Moldova Foundation is a non-profit organization and is always in need of money. Please join our donation-program, or become a sponsor! On request we also sterilise stray-dogs that live on the premises of firms, if they compensate the expenses.
