This template draws on our experiences in Oradea, and so is ‘tried and tested’. We did not do everything right, and we acknowledge this; however, sometimes the errors can be as important as the successes to help in the future, as well as for others who aim to make a difference in their own areas.
The template has been designed to offer guidance anyone who wants to help their local street dog population and can be adapted as necessary for different areas. Whoever you are, and whatever knowledge you have, we hope to show that you can do it if you have the determination, drive and passion.
If you do decide to do this then all of us in the animal welfare world will be behind you every step of the way.
We hope this template will help and inspire you. We all recognise that there is no easy solution; however, those of us who work in animal welfare know that without dogs, who do so much for us, the world would be a much poorer place.
