Spay/Neuter Center update and more
Spay neuter meeting point in a village
As this summer ends, we have more work to report being done with your help for the cats of Romania. Our totals for spay/neuter of animals (cats and dogs) is now over 104,423 - that number represents millions who never were born to suffer, thanks to your support.
Veterinary Directory Dr. Aurelian Stefan and the team of vets and techs are now presented in a 12 episode hour long TV reality program "Veterinarians in Action" on national TV. It is a page of history for the animals of Romania! And we now have a running advertisement in the Bucharest subway inviting the public to help homeless animals.
Center of Hope Spay/Neuter Extension is near completion, making it the largest spay/neuter center in Romania. Opening celebration will be on October 17. This huge expansion will allow RAR to spay/neuter even more animals, as many as 1000 per month in this location alone. Your continued support can make this goal possible. Both the original Center of Hope and the extension are built with "green" technology. Our energy bill for the Center of Hope in July was an amazing $8. Saving more money to help the animals!
We secured an agreement with Ilfov County (Bucharest vicinity) to spay/neuter animals ..... a first of it's kind. Their volunteers actively reach the villages and bring cats to the Center of Help for treatment and surgery using the Spay Shuttle . After awakening from anesthesia and being vet checked, the cats are returned to their guardians in the evening.
Dr. Aurelian and volunteer Catalin have set up the first cat microchip registry in Romania. So many kitties will be reunited to their guardians thanks to this!
All this work and so much more to come is possible thanks to your donations.
We are deeply grateful for your continued help.
