Ah, at last! Very good, necessary and positive action to help those poor little (and bigger) strays.
My own dog was a stray. And to our surprise wasn’t even neutered when we got him from the local sylogo. They would round up strays and give them all their shots, but not neuter them. No, they said, it is against the law… or something.
Let’s hope it is a success and the beginning of a more animal friendly practice.
Forreign vets been doing this for years discretely on Greek islands etc,
sure, it’s high time that our would do something as well 🙂
