Romania Animal Rescue focuses on establishing and promoting animal welfare in the country of Romania. Our four main programs are: Spay/Neuter, Animal Care, Veterinary Training, Education.

Our Programs

Preventing in-home and community-cared pets from producing litters will stop the stray overpopulation problem at its source.

Animal Care

GlobalGiving recognized our Homeless Animal Hospital program as their Project of the Month for March, 2015.
Modern veterinary procedures

Veterinary Training

Our vets train safe, high-volume spay/neuter procedures and modern veterinary techniques to local and international veterinarians.
Educating local schoolchildren in taking care of their pets


We provide outreach to local schoolchildren so the next generation of animal lovers can take great care of their pets.

HOPE is reaching the towns and villages of Romania. We are gearing up for training veterinarians in Bulgaria. Homeless Animal Hospital saves the day (again).

Sky's Leg


Sky was brought in to be spayed by Romania Animal Rescue in Moreni and discovered she had a broken hind leg. We needed to find out if we could save it.

We do not have enough words to express what a wonderful job RAR is doing in Romania, and Dr. Aurelian Stefan is an example of amazing skills and dedication. Our vet just returned home today from training with him and goes on and on about how impressed he was with Dr. A's skills and technique, and hopes to meet him again, he is a man you can learn A LOT from. Congratulations for being the best.

I was at the spayathon in Craiova and Dr. A and his team are doing a fantastic job, they are helping a lot the dogs in Romania and I am glad I met them, since then I never stopped using them as a vet for my animals and for the strays in my care also. Keep up the good work Dr. A and Nancy Janes.

This is the first solid initiative I finally see in Romania. Thank GOD for it. Their procedures are amazing. We have had Dr. Petrisor over for a spay & neuter day of several pets. Basically no scar left, no need to bandage the animal like they do when they open them up in a much more dramatic way, and the pet is up and about in a very short time.
