PLOIESTI NEUTERING CHALLENGE

Ploiesti is a Romanian town plagued with massive stray animal overpopulation, as well as with local vet prices that make it difficult for the average citizen to sterilize companion dogs, let alone stray animals. The worst statistics I have heard claim up to 8,000 strays living in the streets of this Romanian city. With this in mind, we started the Ploiesti Neutering Challenge, a campaign providing free sterilizations for street, owned and shelter dogs and cats. So no pup would ever be born to be abandoned again.

How did this start? On March 30th 2012 I had had enough. I simply could not bare the sight of more abandoned puppies everywhere, and the awful feeling of being unable to help local animal lovers that needed help with sterilizations, because they simply could not afford it. So I took a deep breath and thought to myself, "What if the world will care? Let's give it a try!" I wrote an appeal and started a fundraising event for this Ploiesti Neutering Challenge. And just like a dream, it picked up right away. Since then, we have provided hundreds of free sterilizations. Pretty incredible. Sometimes, you just have to dream and share your dream with the world! And always, the right people will care. And they did.

PS1: The precursor and the inspiration for the Ploiesti Neutering Challenge was the campaign of 100 free sterilizations in November 2011 funded by Romania Animal Rescue and organized by us.

PS2: When we sterilize 10+ animals in one day, to us that counts as one full sterilization day as part of the Ploiesti Neutering Challenge. Otherwise, at less than 10 sterilizations per day, we call it a short day which typically tackles emergency sterilizations we must provide asap.

You can become part of our dream, the Ploiesti Neutering Challenge, by donating via Paypal to our organization account, sterilizariploiesti@yahoo.com. Alternatively, bank account info of our organization is listed on the right side of our blog. One sterilization directly at the vet clinic costs us 80 ron (or approximately 18.5 euro); one sterilization with transportation of the animal to and from the clinic plus 2 days of recovery care costs us 90 ron (or approximately 21 euro).
