Street dogs and cats sterilized in Transylvanian villages

Charities and local authorities have sterilized 150 dogs and cats in five villages in Transylvania to keep the rising population of stray animals in the region under control.

The sterilizations took place from Oct. 12 to Oct. 14 in the village of Bunesti, central Romania, a press release from the M&V Schmidt Foundation said.

Dogs and cats from Bunești, Criț, Roadeș, Meșendorf and Viscri, Saxon villages in the heart of Transylvania underwent operations. Britain’s King Charles III has a house and foundation in Viscri in central Romania.

The groups initiated the action after the number of stray dogs and cats grew in the villages.

The sterilizations are part of  along-term project to keep the number of strays under control in the villages and prevent unwanted pets being abandoned.

The YOYO Association, the M&V Schmidt Foundation and the Tabaluga Foundation took part in the action, in partnership with the Bunești town hall.

Sterilizing stray dogs is considered the  most effective and compassionate way of controlling rising street dog populations around the world.
