Ploiesti Neutering Challenge Day 33 in honor of Gia!

On May 27th we've made it to Day 33 of sterilizations part of our Ploiesti Neutering Challenge! Thanks to wonderful friends who cared and wished to prevent more suffering. On Day 33, 17 females (13 dogs and 4 cats) got sterilized at the FPCC vet clinic on the outskirts of Ploiesti. Most dogs were either pregnant or in heat. All cats were pregnant. All super lovely animals that won't be breeding machines anymore. Here's bits and pieces of Day 33 in pictures!

This small female was abandoned (pregnant) recently in front of the home of an animal lover. The animal lover called me, she was desperate to have the wee dog sterilized. The little doggie also lacks a front paw...

Friendly small female in heat; she was dumped a while back ago in the courtyard of a monastery, pregnant. She gave birth to that litter but all puppies but 1 died... Now she was in heat again

And one of the lady cats!

 Leaving the clinic, sterilized and awake now. This female is owned. Months ago when she was pregnant, the volunteers wanted to take her for free s/n but the owners did not agree. They said it was a sin to sterilize pregnant females. Same religious owners had no problem dumping the resulting pups afterwards in the streets... But this time the volunteers snatched her and brought her for sterilization

Day 33 with 17 sterilizations was dedicated to our sweet miracle pup Gia. Huge thanks to HondenBrokkenMakers, HEMA Puttershoek, Erna, Leny and Gia for supporting Day 33 of sterilizations!

Earlier on May 24th we also provided 2 more emergency sterilizations at the vet clinic in town, also courtesy of HondenBrokkenMakers.

Thank you for caring to help us prevent more suffering!
