International Stray Animal Team (ISAT)
Each time when big international sporting events are organized in countries with big stray animal populations massive killings of these strays are the horrible reality. Killing of stray animals doesn’t solve the stray animal overpopulation problem and is unnecessary and cruel. There are other solutions that are more humane and work better in the long-term.
The International Stray Animal Team (ISAT) wants to make clear to all countries that are preparing for international sporting events and involved sports associations that humane solutions for the stray animal problem are a MUST. Additionally our team can offer help and solutions for the stray animal population problem to these countries and organizations.
- Our first step will be recognition for the problem and recognition for the fact that humane solutions are the only option.
- The second step will be to offer our network of professionals and volunteers to assist in the humane approach
Step 1 Recognition for the problem and recognition for the fact that humane solutions are the only option
For this we designed a Joint statement of animal welfare organizations or individuals on planning for humane stray animal population management ahead of international Sports Events

What are possible future activities of ISAT
The ISAT team can do the following activities in countries that are preparing big sporting events:
- identification of the local stray animal organisations and foundations
- identification of local veterinarians and local paravets
- identification of the actual stray animal population problem
- designing plans of action in which human solutions will be formulated to the stray animal problem
- presence of a global team of veterinarians to support the projects
- presence of a global team of para-veterinarians to support the projects
- presence of a global team of volunteers to help with CNVR projects
- etc, etc, etc
