Dr. Aurelian Stefan, DVM

Dr. Aurelian Stefan, DVM

Dr. Aurelian Stefan graduated in 2004 from University of Bucharest. He spent several months in the USA under the guidance of Dr. Jeff Young where he learned the skills necessary for performing successful large-scale neutering campaigns. Dr. Stefan is the medical director for Romania Animal Rescue. He regularly organizes and participates in neutering projects throughout Romania, during which he will operate on approximately 40 to 50 animals per day. He is a pioneer for the humane population control of street dogs in Romania and is keen to develop and share surgical techniques. With this objective in mind, he developed Veterinary Training Camp with the assistance of Ruth Osborne. During these training sessions, he teaches other vets the skills required to perform modern spayeuter procedures.

Dr. Pepe Stefan, DVM

Dr. Petrisor Stefan graduated top of his class from The University of Bucharest in 2006. He is one of the main members of the veterinary team and is responsible for a large proportion of the surgeries RAR funds every year both in his home country of Romania and abroad in places such as Greece, USA and South America. Petrisor has worked hard to develop a family clinic with his brother where they have helped the local community with their stray problems through organizing neutering projects. He is one of the tutors of The Veterinary Training Camp and the co-founder with Dr. Aurelian Stefan of World Animal Veterinary Emissaries (WAVE), an organization that promotes animal welfare throughout the world through performing free neutering clinics and veterinary treatment.

Dr. Irina Corbu, DVM

Dr. Irina Corbu, DVM

Dr. Irina Corbu graduated from University of Bucharest in 2008. She is trained in surgical techniques that allow optimum patient recovery with minimal complications. This practice is important when working with stray animals, as a prolonged post-operative monitoring period is not always possible in the same way as owned pets. Dr. Corbu is a valued member of the RAR neutering team and believes in the importance of organization and efficiency when conducting a neutering project. She is a patient teacher and feels it is important to share her experience and skills with others so they can in turn improve the welfare of animals in their local area.
