HOVAR Contributes to Cat Sterilisation Programme
Dogs at Large organised a lunch at Monte Alto on 21st Feb to raise funds for a Cat Sterilisation Programme. HoVAR Committee allocated 500€ towards the programme with the money being paid directly to the Vet Rebbecca in the village to cover the costs towards the programme. In total over 1500€ was raised at the function and this will go a long way to moving this programme along in the Hondon Valley Area. Chairman Colin Buck made the announcement at the function and the contribution was greatly appreciated. Rebbecca the vet informed us that the 500€ had now been fully used so we will hope to see improvements in the numbers of feral cats in the area. This has been a great opportunity for animal charities in the area to work together for the benefit of animal welfare.
Dog Sterilisation Programme
HOVAR will shortly launch a dog sterilisation programme in the area of Nieves, Frailes and La Romana. This will also include chipping of dog to owner. Further details will shortly be published about the programme and the criteria of eligibility which we will hope to commence in the next month or two. We expect to have good support from the local Town Halls who will also assist us where they can.
