Ploiesti Neutering Challenge Day 26

On March 27th we picked up a total of 16 females for free sterilizations as part of Day 26 of our Ploiesti Neutering Challenge. Nine females were from Ploiesti, while 7 were from a nearby village with high stray density.

We picked up this stray female for sterilization. She is terribly sweet and she used to have an owner of her own. But her owner kicked her out the moment she got pregnant. A painfully common story of Romanian dog ownership here. So her pups were born in the street among some ruins...

And a short video of the 4 little darlings the day we took their mom for sterilization:

While we stand first and foremost for sterilizations as means to prevent future suffering and abandonment, these pups already born need us, and we need help with finding them good responsible owners

Two days later, on March 29th, we returned the 16 sterilized females back to their carers and into their territories:

And some sterilized cats

On day 26 we had 16 females sterilized. Day 26 was made possible by one generous anonymous friend, and Toni, Nicoleta, Zoe and her Onbe, Jane and her Quido. Thank you so much, you all!

Day 26 is the last day of sterilizations this month, a month that has been our most productive month yet, with a total of 105 sterilizations! And yes, my dream to have at least 100 animals sterilized this month has been fulfilled. I am extremely grateful and happy!

We did it! We did go over 100 sterilizations this month!

Thank you!
