Ploiesti Neutering Challenge November 2012

Never giving up on them - we love them by preventing their suffering

For the rest of November Romanian Stray Dogs Ploiesti hopes to sterilize at least 20 more animals with your help. Because Ploiesti is already a sorely overpopulated town, and because the ruthlessness of this coming winter will be impossible to bear for many newborn pups. Why allow them to be born so they suffer and die in freezing temperatures?

We can really prevent such suffering. It's really in our hands!

One sterilization, plus catch, transport to and from the vet clinic, and 2 days of post surgery care at the FPCC clinic, cost a total of 90 RON, or about 26.5 USD including paypal fees. And any tiny bit of help will be so valuable to the animals in desperate need of sterilization.

I would like to conclude this with quotes from Dr Jeffrey Young' blog, a person I highly respect and admire, a true champion of spay and neuter as only means to solve the overpopulation problem and so much unnecessary suffering of innocent beings (the entire article can be found here:

"Sheltering, warehousing, and adopting will never solve the overpopulation problem but its great for business. For over 200 years, we have had the same approach & we have still failed. There are a lot of groups worth hundreds of millions of dollars. Their only goal should be to put themselves out of business- not to get richer, bigger, and less efficient. The only real progress over the last twenty years has come from so many small groups & veterinarians like myself who have dedicated themselves to low cost spay/neuter. Coupled with a more aware and sophisticated society in general."

"The only way to move forward is to reduce the number of surplus companion animals. Yes, we need stronger animal cruelty laws, we need more public education, but more than anything we need fewer companion animals born. Anyone who takes overpopulation seriously must push hard and use their financial & political influence to advance spay/neuter."

"My goal at the end of the day is not to feel warm and fuzzy, but to know in some small way I have helped to eliminate future suffering, neglect, and death. All wars have casualties but in the end it should be about the greater good and reduction of pain and suffering."

How much suffering will you prevent this winter?
