European Union Mess is Bad for Animal Rescue in Bulgaria — 4 Comments

  1. There are others, in Bulgaria and other nearby countries with similar situations and working solely under volunteer effort and very meager donations. These are the ones I’ve found so far:



    They network with each other, and K9RB has an affiliation with a small UK group, but they could certainly use more international attention and help. They will and have sent animals out to other countries, even as far away as America, and they can communicate in English, so anyone interested in donating, fostering, or adopting needn’t be concerned about not being local. And yes, they deal with cats as well as dogs.

  2. This is awful. I didn’t realise they were part of the EU. If there’s one thing I am sure of, it’s that I don’t trust the people who have control over the financial way of things. Seems like they have all been a great failure and desperately adding sub par countries in a desperate bid to get more money seems like the exact same sort of behaviour and decision making that got us here in the first place.

    My ex co worker is Bulgarian. Her grandmother lives near Sofia and has a persian cat. So that tells us that there are pedigree cats there. This business of not knowing how to spay an animal is an incredible failure. These countries not only have lower standards but in many cases alot of the people are xenophobic. I sincerely hope Albania never joins the EU.

    I really hope they don’t have to shut down. That would be a terribly ironic and sad twist of events.

    • It looks very tough to run a dog rescue in Bulgaria because the attitudes appear to be very different. Plus the silly Eurocrats bearing down with their rules. Seems almost impossible to me.

  3. This is terrible, the Rowles trying to do something about animal welfare there and saving lives but threatened to be closed down!
    I can hardly believe any vet doesn’t know how to spay a female dog, they must be very badly trained, do they even have places where student vets are taught? But surely if they know a dog’s anatomy their common sense should tell them how to do it anyway.
    What about cats, does anyone there care about them?
