By nature geographical location, most of the county towns have nearby forest or other areas frequented by wild animals (especially foxes), which is a high risk concerning rabies - disease fatal in case of transmission to humans. This risk is doubled if nevaccinării dogs because they, coming into contact with infected animals can transmit the disease to man. Association "Electronic Register of Domestic Animals" Turda, in dialogue with partner Tasso e.V. Germany, signed a protocol with the City and "the veterinarian's office 112vet Hammer - Valcea", with the support of the Foundation Dumitru Drăghicescu and the Association "Second Chance" - Rm.

In addition, they have been vaccinated, while also being the anti-rabies vaccination campaign according to the National Strategic Programme. At the same time, we conduct a campaign to educate students in grades I-IV, with the support "ABC Educational" edited and distributed for free. Students are informed of where to buy / adopt a pet, you need to consider before opting for a breed of dog, you should consult a veterinarian, how to care for pets, and what responsibilities have when owning a pet, both in terms of veterinary and administrative point of view. At the same time, we insist and the obligations they have during walks with the dogs. One purpose of these presentations is to inform students about rabies. Provide details about the disease and its risks, noting that it can be transmitted from animals to humans and warn students regarding the measures to be taken for their safety.
Also worth looking microchipping and registration obligation and vaccinate all stray dogs and the benefits of optical marking of the animals with the owner, and measures indicated for finding such an animal. An action of this kind was held in the Danube Delta, to this city, Sulina, C.A. Rosetti is ongoing in Samova and Nalbant. The campaign helped the tourists and the locals in common as stray dogs were not vaccinated many years, and the risk of infection with rabies (hydrophobia) is very high, constituting a major threat to public health. The first city where R.E.A.D.C. and offered free services was Campia Turzii, jud. Cluj. For three consecutive years, we have registered, microchipped and vaccinated all the stray dogs in the city.
As a result of this action, any dog registered in our database have been abandoned and thus reduced budget expenses allocated to shelters. Our activities have prevented its obligations under the law that requires microchipping animals and sterilizing dogs not race, otherwise they are liable heavy fines (400L / dog Necip / unvaccinated, reaching RON 5,000 for those with many dogs Necip / unvaccinated ).
In the future we intend to expand cooperation in this area and consider a sterilization campaign free mugs and cats bred common (a program similar to that carried out last summer in the city Babeni) as the solution to reduce the number of stray animals found in yard owners of dogs and cats, representing a continuous source of abandonment of unwanted deposit generations and generations.
