WE DID IT, WE DID IT, WE
DID IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We spayed/neutered 465 dogs/cats with the spay/neuter
project of the ASNI/RAR/SHA. 465 dogs and cats who cannot reproduce!! Way to
go!!! Thanks to the Dream Team from ASNI/RAR, Thanks to Nancy Janes,founder of
ASNI, thanks to Cyntha Ashruf, Founder and Chairwoman of the SHA and all the
WONDERFUL volunteers of the Henk Abrahams Foundation and everyone who donated
in any way possible (tickets, money, water, soft drinks, juice, soap, paper
towels, cakes etc etc.)
In early 2000, my friend Yvelline Pelletier traveled to the region of Guyana, South America. Upon her return to California, she told me of the situation for the stray dogs in that area of the world, how they are continually hit by buses, an...d how much they needed help. Since that time I have wanted to help in some way, and now, thanks to the wonderful donations by Animal Spay Neuter International (www.animalsni.org) supporters, we are able to. In 2012, I received a phone call from Karin King, asking if our team could possibly travel to Suriname (formerly Dutch Guyana) to help the strays. She told me she had contacted organizations from all over asking for help, to no avail. Well, many of us, including myself, have been in that same position of pleading for help with no response or hope in sight. ( This very thing happened to me when starting to help in Romania, which is why we began our own charity for Romanian animals.) Karin's plea touched me and our vet team from Romania (and UK vet tech Ruth). It's been months in the planning stages, and thanks to free airline tickets (ASNI paid for 1 ticket and taxes, and tickets from Romania to Amsterdam) from Suriname Airways and free accommodations provided in Suriname, the Romanian and British "Dream Team" departed for Suriname, South America, on February 20.
Today they return back to Romania to continue their outstanding work for the animals with Romania Animal Rescue (www.romaniaanimalrescue.org) . Thank you for being there for all the animals, for making this a better world, and for understanding that we all need to be there for each other to reach the goal of no more suffering.
Love to you Dr. Aurelian Stefan, Dr. Petrisor Stefan, Roxana, and Ruth!! Thank you to Karin King, Cynthia Ashruf, the Henk Abrahams Stichting for all your hard work and for taking care of the Dream Team while they were in Paramaribo, Suriname! I hope this light of hope brings your charity much success and support. Thank you Andrea Kirschner for all your help too!
