Glimpses,photos & experiences of a foreigner living in Slovenia, Ljubljana
The Romanian authorities have decided in great majority to euthanize all the street animals. And yes, between those are many animals helpless,that did not harm any human, that are perfectly capable to integrate in a family and become a lovely pet. They have just two choices: Romanian style euthanasia (and for those that need proves of the barbarism of how dogs are being butchered in public shelters,please drop me a p.m. and I will send you videos) or to be adopted.
To be adopted, many Romanians need to see other people’s experiences with adopted animals, by different ages,from different places.
Adopted dogs,strays are same as breed dogs, same as the ones people still prefer to buy from pet shops though organisation based exclusively on donations offer free sterilization and necessary vaccines.
The feeding of an adopted animal is same as for any other dog, the hygiene is the same and can be done by the owner and easy to learn how.
The owner of a stray animal,has same rights and obligations as any other dog owner, from collecting after your dog,easily done with just one ordinary plastic bag, till keeping your dog on the leash in public places so the dog wont get lost till the right to walk in parks,have organised meeting/training places organised by charities. Adopted dogs can be any age, majority prefers to chose puppies,best argument would be the training and life expectancy but my only argument is for everyone to empathize and just then to chose.
Adopted animals,of any age,know how to behave in presence of children and surprisingly for some, kids adore animals, and once they are showed how to approach an animal, they will become best friends. Like I think many of us had and still have.
I adopted a stray , I ask of everyone that did as well, to share with us their photo and advice towards Romanian people that are considering saving a life and adopting. Thank you !
