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.
