Pagoda Animals Desexed In Phnom Penh

Number Of Pagoda Animals Desexed In Phnom Penh In 12 Months?

It was suggested last week that any groups taking part in Pagoda spay/neuter missions keep each other informed, so in the spirit of cooperation, coordination, and collaboration, I was thinking it would be a cool idea if we all made it public how many animals have been desexed in Phnom Penh and which Pagodas/streets/markets/communities/areas have […]
