The Romania Animal Rescue Craiova Spayathon was a huge success! 550 spays/neuters for dogs and cats, all dogs and cats, whether stray, from shelters or owned, were welcomed! The new RAR van collected animals from local shelters as well as areas where many strays are located. Thanks to Susy Utzinger's charity who worked hard and helped to sponsor this event, many animals were humanely captured and brought in from a neighboring village as well as from areas with large stray dog populations in Craiova.
