Trap, neuter and release

The Catch, Neuter and Return program was held until 2014 for the dogs collected from the steel plant. This program was fully supported financially by Arcelor Mittal Galati (AMG) and logistically by ROLDA. Since ROLDA started the partnership with AMG for the dogs, our charity managed to reduce humanely (developing sterilization and adoption programs) the stray dogs’ population by 70%.

An average of 40 dogs were caught, sterilized and returned to the industrial site in Galati.

Dogs from the steel plant were transported to the clinic to be sterilized and brought back into the territory. The straws or blankets keep them softly safe during a bumping road and also absorb the unwanted “liquids” to keep them clean.
