Over the last week, the Municipality of Dryanovo has brought in the Street Hearts Shelter the following animals:

  •  A Female dog with seven puppies
  •  Four small dogs were thrown behind the post office building
  •  One dog from the bus stop in Gesha village

Also, a lost dog returned to the owner with quite a bit of difficulty as he was not chipped. Another benefit of registering and chipping is that if someone’s pet gets lost, it would be much easier to locate them with a chip implanted.

Dryanovo Municipality suggested the locals chip their pets to track them easily. Municipality also reported that more than a dozen are on the shelter waiting list. 

Therefore, through their social media page, the Municipality of Dryanovo once again reminds that the Municipality Foundation “Street Hearts” offer free castration and chipping. If anyone is interested, they need to make an appointment with the veterinarian at 087 726 0760.

The deadline to register your dog in the Municipality or the relevant City Hall is the end of March under the Veterinary-Medical Activity Act. The fees are symbolic, and this will also contribute to solving the problem of homeless animals.

Bulgarian NGO Street Hearts BG demonstrated the importance of microchips and trackers by sharing the details of the recent incident on its social media page. 

They found the dog around town on Wednesday evening and had no idea where she’d come from as she wasn’t microchipped, so she was neutered and brought safely to their private shelter. 

Thursday evening, the missing dog’s owner spotted her on their Facebook stories and contacted them. Street heart BG named that dog Martha and her real name is Bambi, who had escaped from a garden. She was thrilled to be reunited with her owner. 

Bambi could have been reunited with her owner far quicker if she’d been microchipped. Streets heart BG outlined that dogs can’t tell us where they’ve come from – wouldn’t it be wonderful if they could? – so a microchip becomes their voice, making it far simpler, easier, and quicker to reunite them with their owner. 

They suggested every dog owner worldwide microchip their dog. The organisation emphasised that residents of two local municipalities, Dryanovo and Tryavna, can get their pets implanted with a microchip for free. All they need to do is to call 087 726 0760.
