Sterilisation for Sirkos

Realized 28.10.2019 - 25.01.2020

30 000 UAH

For 7 years, Dim Sirka Charitable Organisation has been working to keep fewer dogs out on the streets and sterilise those who already are there to prevent them from bringing offspring.

The following measures will be taken within the framework of this project:

- 100 dogs will be sterilised between 15 November and 31 December.
- Each dog will have a tag, and a relevant entry will be made in the book.
- Families will be found for the sterilised dogs.

Sterilisation of 100 dogs will result in 1,600 dogs less in the city per year in the future. 1 dog breeds about 16 puppies a year, and 100 dogs bring 1,600, respectively.

The mass sterilisation of dogs has begun in Ivano-Frankivsk since 2014. It has produced results: in 2012, there were 3,500 dogs, now there is a bit more than 1,000 dogs on the streets. This amount will be steadily reduced through sterilisation measures.

The project reporting will include taking photos of the animals before and after, registration in the special book by a veterinarian and placing a tag on an animal’s ear, which will indicate that the animal has been vaccinated against rabies and sterilised.

The grant programme will cover the cost of animal sterilisation.

Continue the Required Sterilisation Project that was awarded a grant last season.
