Volunteer group from Colina, PuRR Project, SPCA, who organize free monthly spay and neuter clinics
When SPCApv board member, Luz Maria Wong first came up with the idea of a free Spay & Neuter clinic on the Isla Cuale, she didn’t keep it to herself. She approached her animal-loving friends, colleagues and vets with the idea and consulted with them to form a plan.
Originally the idea was to sterilize 30 animals per clinic on a budget set by the Vet. Each clinic would take place on the first Sunday of each month. However, it soon became very popular and clearly a maximum of 30 animals was not enough. As the months went by, more and more animals were brought to the clinics, culminating in December 2016 with 80 animals being sterilized.
We are incredibly thankful for our wonderful team of three vets, two vet technicians and a dedicated group of volunteers. With the big increase in numbers, the volunteers have had to find extra funding, not only for the extra surgeries, but as the numbers of animals has increased, so have many of the ongoing expenses.
We are a volunteer group from Colina, Puro Gato, PEACE, PuRR Project, and Sociedad Animal (SPCA), who organize a free monthly spay and neuter clinic on the first Sunday of each month. All clinics are funded entirely through donations. We aim to spay/neuter 66 cats and dogs per clinic. Veterinarians are fully accredited and use anesthesia and medical equipment to ensure the safety of the animals. Compassionate after surgery care is provided by volunteers.
To educate the local community to the importance of controlling pet population.
In order to sterilize a total of 60 animals per Sunday clinic, 10,000 pesos needs to be raised. Please consider donating. Unless you prefer to remain anonymous, your name or organization name will be listed as a co-sponsor.
