Dear friends,

as you know Spay/Neuter has always been the top of our priorities. No matter how many animals we rehome or help in a crisis situation – if we don’t stop the flow of newly dumped adults and puppies – our work would have no point at all.

Many of you know that when Animal Rescue Sofia took over the municipal shelter of Bogrov the facility didn’t have a registered vet clinic. With he great help of our friends at Good Idea vet clinic – a local ambulatory was registered and the Spay/Neuter work began. This  happened in July 2010. Since then our own d-r Marietta Stankova performed single-handedly over 1200 spay/neuter surgeries, preventing the suffering of thousands of unwanted litters.

Today, a year later we are proud to have a second neutering surgeon on board! We say a warm welcome to doctor Rossi Stoyanova. D-r Stoyanova is a young vet with allot of love for animals. We are very happy to have her join our team and hope to be able to do even better at neutering homeless and pet animals at the shelter.

After several months of negotiations with the municipallity we have reached a very important milestone: the municipality has signed contracts with our and 2 more neutering centres in Sofia. The concept is simple: the municipality agrees to provide most of the medications so that as many as possible dogs are neutered in Sofia. After a successfull test month we are now waiting for the action lot to go through official channels and for the medications and materials to start flowing in steadily. We will make good use of this opportunity! As you know our spay/neuter has always been free of charge to the public, but now we will be able to do even more. Dogs will be brought for neutering to Bogrov instead of Seslavci every Wednesday.

Meanwhile – we have reached a strategic point: 1300 neutered!!!

We are also continuing our Free Microchip program. Every pet, neutered at Bogrov or another facility can be microchipped for FREE at the shelter. Many people have already used this wonderful opportunity, so can you. Just call the shelter and make an appointment for your pet: 0884125670 READ MORE to learn the details.

Spay/Neuter is the only humane and successfull method of dealing with stray dog overpopulation. It is a proven method, supported by the World Health Organization.
