According to Dogs on Death Row and PETA, each unspayed female dog and her offspring can potentially produce over 60,000 puppies in her seven-year lifespan. Granted, most of these puppies will not live to maturity. They will suffer diseases that inflict great misery, such as parvo, distemper, and hepatitis, along with infestations of parasites and being involved in accidents. Romania Animal Rescue believes that the only effective and humane solution to control the overpopulation of dogs and cats is to spay or neuter.

Our highly skilled vets have adapted and improved surgical techniques such as "keyhole incisions" and "flank spay, which are less invasive, allowing for a quicker recovery.

These techniques allow the vets to perform many surgeries quickly and safely while following the highest pre- and post-surgery standards.


A spayathon is a spay/neuter marathon where the team of our top vets, vet techs, and local and foreign volunteers work together to spay/neuter dozens of dogs and cats.   These spayathons occur in different locations worldwide where there is a need and at the request of local communities.  Most of our spayathons occur in Romania, where access to veterinary services is virtually non-existent.

Check out a video of one of our spayathons.

Our priority has been and remains spaying/neutering. Since 2004, we have spayed/neutered over 127,428 dogs/cats, translating into millions of unwanted puppies and kittens saved from a miserable existence on the streets.  Spaying/neutering also improves and prolongs the lives of adult dogs/cats by preventing certain forms of cancer, infections, and birth complications.
