Summer and Autumn Neuter campaigns update, October 2018:
Our summer and autumn neuter campaigns are all still running.
Our Happy Stitches campaign in Jilava County has neutered 180 cats and dogs so far. This is a street
by street community campaign with the Mayor’s approval, targeting a growing area in Jilava County.
Our Iasi cat neuter campaign is still running, with the backing of the Mayor – into it’s 4 th month and we have spayed 270 cats so far, with many more still to do. This is a campaign for any owned or stray cat: kittens being born unwanted is a huge problem in Romania.
Happy Stitches Timisoara County started in September, for cats and dogs, owned and stray, within weeks, we have neutered over 140 animals – the area is in desperate need of help.
Our newest Happy Stitches campaign in Cluj – Napoca has just started, and will continue to run as long as we can – until it becomes too cold to neuter, the winters dropping below -20C.
These campaigns alone have already neutered 595 animals, and there is no reason why this will not reach 1,000 animals.
With previous campaigns in Constanta (300 animals), Bucharest (500 animals) and Baia Mare (580 animals), we have neutered 1,975 animals.
A huge leap forwards from our previous campaigns over the past years, as our 2018 campaign focused on preventing unwanted strays being born.
If statistics on the internet are true, and each animal in 6 years is responsible for 67,000 pups or
kittens being born, then over the past year, we have already prevented 132 million strays being
A huge achievement for Paws2Rescue and a huge testament to the commitment of them and their supporters to tackling the root cause of the stray dog problem in Romania.
