Education is vital to ensuring the sustainability of our work and to changing cultural norms.

Only by educating children about the importance of animal welfare can we guarantee that our work has a long-lasting impact.

Although Romanian children grow up seeing and interacting with animals daily, they rarely receive any advice or education about protecting and caring for them.

We work with local rescuers and educators to change how Romanian people treat animals and set a better example for future generations.


Our Craiova Clinic and Center of Hope in Bucharest are our current two clinics. 

We partnered with local teachers to host a "Career Day" at the clinics to teach school children about being a vet, offer them hands-on experience, and teach them how to best care for animals.

This inspires many children to look after the stray animals in their neighborhood, to ask for help if they see an injured animal, and even to become a veterinarian one day.


Every spayathon is an event at the heart of the community. RAR vets use this opportunity to talk to community members about compassion towards animals and animal welfare and to distribute educational booklets.

The booklets contain 19 full-color pages with interactive games and photos which focus on animal care and the importance of spay/neuter.

The education booklets go everywhere the RAR mobile clinic goes and has reached children as far as Buhusi, Cernovada, Sighetu Marmatiei, and Tecuci.
