Updated on Mom "Too Poor" to Rescue
May 2013 - Many of you are now familiar with our support of the Rudozem animal shelter in Bulgaria run by Diane and Tony Rowles of England. Diane has been threatened with arrest if she does not bring her shelter into compliance with the state-of-the-art standards set forth by the European Union. When the couple moved to Bulgaria with their four children a few years ago, they never imagined that their lives would suddenly be surrendered to the mision of saving street animals, and they have helped thousands. With your Harmony Fund donations, the shelter rennovations are now well underway and authorities have been appeased for now. While the shelter does not yet have all the funds they need to complete the work, donations continue to come through and we are optimistic about the future for this family and the animals they rescue.

My name is Ana Stefanova. Im from Bulgaria.
Im writing to you, because here a lot of disturbing things happen about the homeless dogs. In the centers for castration the conditions are bed. The two-week period that the dogs must spend there before euthanasia is not considered they kill the dogs immediately. Today, 21. 02. 2009 on the TV report of the national television (BTV), a news report shows a woman, that recommends that the homeless dogs must be killed with soda-caustic in mince. This was the advice to the others, who are afraid of the dogs. The report shows how people buy different products from the shops- gas-pistols etc. for protection.
Last year a dog in front of our block was killed with a gun, directly in the head. My neighbors and I wrote a petition to the police, we received a decision from the prosecutors office that this is not a crime.
Every effort that the people who love and cares for the animals are completely useless, the police, the municipality and every institution accept this as not serious and funny.
This is very discouraging and cruel, so I write now because the people here want to stop this, but dont know who to ask and what to do.
