New Project: Ring Road

Ring Road

Thousands of stray dogs live in the industrial areas near the busy Ring Road around Bucharest. We have started a new project to spay/neuter as many dogs as we can to improve the quality of life of these Ring Road dogs.

Many of these dogs are fed by people working in these areas. But too many puppies are born in these factory yards and they are vulnerable to diseases and injuries. The best we can do to help is to see that fewer pups are born into a world that cannot provide for them.

What's a spayathon?

A spayathon is a word invented by our founder, Nancy Janes, defined as "a campaign for high volume spay and neuter surgeries, whereby 30 surgeries or more are performed". Like a marathon, a spayathon is an endurance exercise. The vet team is working around the clock to spay and neuter as many animals as possible, in the shortest possible period of time, without compromising the quality of the service provided. When traveling to remote areas of Romania it is important for us to surgically sterilize as many animals as needed, so that we can make a real impact on their lives and that of their community, before we move on to another campaign in a different part of the country.
