Welcome to rommie rescue sussex
Romania has a massive problem with stray dogs. The problems started in the 1980s when Nicolae Ceausescu aimed to industrialise Romania; people were forced to leave the countryside and move into cities. Houses were demolished to make way for apartment blocks and people had nowhere to keep their dogs, so many were abandoned on the streets. The dogs were left to breed and the population increased rapidly. It is estimated that, in Bucharest alone, there are 65,000 stray dogs on the streets. Whilst many residents feed them, others attack them – they are deliberately run over, shot, poisoned, set on fire, beaten to death, or worse, mutilated and left to die a slow and agonising death. If they avoid this fate then they are likely caught by the dog catchers who take them to the public 'kill' shelters. The dog catchers do not use humane methods to catch the dogs in the street, and many dogs die or are severely injured in the process of capture or transport. It is clearly not acceptable for this type of barbaric behaviour to go on in a supposedly civilised country. We have dogs for adoption, why not adopt a rescue dog us.
