Benafim Sterilisation Project
On 15 April we finalised the Benafim Sterilisation Project. It has been a pilot project, and quite successful and we hope to expand this further in rural Algarve.
In Benafim, we have sterilised: 36 cats, of which the majority feral/colony cats and in total 3 dogs. The majority of the female cats was pregnant, and the birth of more than 80 kittens was prevented.
3 female cats were /are with kittens, in total 16 kittens, and will be sterilised in due course, once they are sterilised we can finalise the number of animals taken out of the reproduction chain.
We are very happy with the outcome, have met some amazing lovely local people who do understand and appreciate the importance of sterilisation!
