Ploiesti Neutering Challenge Day 36

Shamefully behind with updating our sterilization days, but here we go! On June 4th we picked up 14 female dogs for free sterilizations as part of our Day 36 of the Ploiesti Neutering Challenge. It was a particularly hot day, and many scheduled dogs were out of sight, hiding under vehicles to keep cool. We managed to catch a total of 14 female dogs:

Two days later, on June 6th, we returned the 14 sterilized animals back into their territories:
 About to be released!

Out of the van, glad to be brought back to her neighborhood

Day 36 of sterilizations is in honor of Ellis, now Ollie; a puppy born in Ploiesti to an owned mother, but a puppy that had to be rescued from a most severe case of neglect together with his surviving siblings; a puppy sponsored by HondenBrokkenMakers who also found him a most beautiful forever home in Holland!

Ellis, now Ollie, back in winter, the first time we met him, a skinny famished puppy happy to feed on a slice of bread: 

Same puppy, now in Holland, happily adopted via HondenBrokkenMakers:
Formerly Ellis, now Ollie, with a totally different life now in Holland

Thank you dearly, HondenBrokkenMakers, for helping us save Ollie and for finding him such a lovely family! Ollie, Day 36 of the Ploiesti Neutering Challenge is sponsored by HondenBrokkenMakers in your honor! Thank you kindly, HondenBrokkenMakers!
