Pioneering a Trap Neuter Return ( TNR ) voucher program for the first time to Lebanon, the evryone in the comunity joined efforts to help stop suffering before it starts. An expert vet from abroad came to help train local vets on large scale TNR projects, and dozens of cats were saved from poisoning on a local university campus after they were all spayed and neutered.

However that is not all, and more is to come.
