Press Release - Free microchipping and vaccination campaign of stray dogs of Sfantu Gheorghe, Sulina, C.A.Rosetti
Registrul Electronic al Animalelor Domestice si de Companie Turda (R.E.A.D.C.) in collaboration with the Association Tasso e.V. Germany, in partnership with municipalities St. George, Sulina and C.A. Rosetti, Tulcea County, and veterinarian Nan concessionaire Ionel have the pleasure to announce the campaign for microchipping, identification, registration, rabies vaccination, deworming internal and external stray dogs across localities mentioned.
The event was free for citizens, saving them significant amounts of money. Campaign costs were borne by R.E.A.D.C. Turda Association - Tasso e.V. Germany, the latter being the largest free registry monitoring of pets in the European Community.
The campaign was conducted during October 2015 - February 2016. Owners of dogs were informed in advance of the arrival of veterinarians, employees and collaborators R.E.A.D.C.
This operating model has been applied successfully for three years in Campia Turzii, Cluj County, which became the first city in Romania where all dogs with master received these services and, in consequence, the rate of abandonment of animals was reduced to 0 (zero) and never recorded any person bitten by dogs.
Given that the number of jackals and foxes in the area is growing, and they can be carriers of rabies, rabies vaccination of dogs is particularly important.
Moreover, the campaign supports tourists and locals in the area, as dogs with owner have not been vaccinated for several years, and the risk of infection with rabies (hydrophobia) is very high, constituting a major threat to public health and safety of citizens.
Action R.E.A.D.C. prevent obligations under the law that requires animal microchipping and sterilization of dogs not race, otherwise citizens are liable to heavy fines (5,000 lei). Given the precarious state of the majority of owners of dogs, they can not afford the high costs of this action and the result will be massive abandonment. Following this obligation by R.E.A.D.C. campaign, residents of localities St. George, Sulina and C.A.Rosetti benefited from these free services.
The best surprise I experienced it when presenting "primer education" students of general school of St. George, the representative READC, when the enthusiasm of children and love for animals was reflected through active participation, spontaneous discussions concerning their protection animal health, which has aroused smiles on the faces of women teachers in the hall, we thank them a lot.
The pleasure of this moment lived among pupils obliges us to contribute to their education and directly supporting the free distribution of the annual "Educational Primers" all students in the common principle: - Protection through Education!
