Sochi Dogs Community Spay/Neuter Day
In preparation for the 2018 World Cup Sochi Dogs has launched a low-cost spay/neuter program to prevent dogs from ending up on the street. Last weekend was the first time Sochi Dog offered the program. 8 dogs and 9 cats were signed up. If all of these dogs had puppies and ended up on the street it would equal the population of the entire shelter!
One woman who brought in her lab-mix to be spayed said, "I knew this was something I had to do but I just didn't have the means to do it. Thank you so much for the opportunity."
This is the first time low-cost spay/neuter has been offered in Sochi and there is clearly a need for it as much of the stray dog population stems from pets who have not been spayed. Many pet owners understand the importance of the procedure but lack the finance to get it done. Our low-cost option allows them to invest in their pets and make sure they do not contribute to the stray dog crisis. Pets that are spayed/neutered by their owners are much more likely to stay with their families.
We will be conducting these spay/neuter days twice a month. This program is run 100% on donations. Please contribute so that no dogs end up on the street. Every dollar counts. Any contribution, small or large, is greatly appreciated!
