And not only does the charity want to improve living conditions for domestic pets, but it also wants to help those that live on farms and in the wild. To do this, Four Paws wants to drive legal changes and educate people about animal suffering.
Vet Ovidiu Rosso is part of the Four Paws team, and in 2016 he was out in Letea, a small town in the Danube Delta in Romania. The delta is an idyllic part of the world, but it was here that Rosso stumbled across a shocking case of animal cruelty.
Unfortunately, many horses are forced to endure poor living conditions in Romania. Across the country people use equines for agricultural and transport purposes. However, some owners have little concern for their animals’ wellbeing.
