Animal Welfare Dahab

Let's make it happen!

The TNR project (Trap, Neuter, Return) 2017

The TNR project 2017 has been held from 2 up to 7 May. The vets Karen and Lisa (Cogges Veterinary Surgery)flew over from the United Kingdom and spend their holiday neutering the streetdogs and -cats of Dahab. These vets neutured the amazing amount of 76 animals in just 6 days!

Animal Welfare Dahab, the volunteers and the people in Dahab are very happy with this result. Next to the regular neutering, this action adds a lot of value to the welfare of the strays in Dahab.

This project would have been impossible without your help. A HUGE THANK YOU TO YOU ALL!
