Wild at Heart Foundation and Friends of Moldavian Strays (FOMS) have teamed up to deliver Moldova's first neutering campaign which began in February 2018. We are currently neutering 16 dogs a month and hope to run a larger scale neutering project in the future. This project relies on local volunteers to catch, transport and release the stray dogs.
Moldova is landlocked, located between Ukraine and Romania and is Europes poorest nation. It is estimated that there are approximately 5-7 thousand stray dogs in Kishinev (Moldovas capital) alone. Moldova has no animal welfare laws and daily life is extremely harsh and dangerous for the dogs on the streets.
This vital project will make a small but significant difference in helping to reduce the number of stray dogs suffering on the streets.
