An extensive, three-month-long neutering project has gone underway in the 6th district of the Romanian capital Bucharest. In many ways, this marks a new step in the effort to establish animal-friendly population control in Eastern Europe: Even though FOUR PAWS has been working in Romania since the 1990s with considerable success, Bucharest has often been the most difficult political territory.
Six teams consisting of 60 veterinarians, assistants, animal carers and dog-handlers as well as 60 volunteers are now in Kiev. In the coming weeks they will be active in the four large cities of Kiev, Lviv, Donetsk, Kharkiv as well as other smaller cities.
FOUR PAWS‘ project manager, Dr. Amir Khalil, will lead the implementation of an intensive neutering and vaccination program for the stray dogs in Kiev in the coming weeks, in order to solve the stray dog problem in a long term and sustainable animal-friendly way.
APAM Animal Protection Association from Minis, Arad is a non-profit organization - financed from donations and sponsorships - which deals with providing shelter to foster abandoned animals, with the sterilization and castration of pets with the purpose of preventing their uncontrolled breeding, with the entrustment of animals to persons wishing and assuming the responsibility of their proper taking care and with campaigns for rehabilitating the respect for animals.
