Sterilization project progressing; more than 400 dogs
WILLEMSTAD - This week the major sterilization action has started: 400 dogs will be sterilized this week through an initiative of House of Animals in cooperation with five foundations in Curacao. Ten veterinarians have come over from the Netherlands to support this sterilization process. This in response to a documentary Lost In Paradise about the animal suffering in Curacao.
The local foundations have looked up the dogs that are not normally brought to a vet from people who do not know that free sterilization is sometimes possible through these foundations. After the call, there were a great number of applications, which resulted in a waiting list. Mirjam Steppenwolde from the organization says that there will certainly be a result and the foundations will start thinking about how the dogs on the waiting list can still be helped.
