Affordable, accessible spay and neuter programs are key to reducing the population of unwanted pets.
Spay and Neuter clinics were being held by the organization Peace until they ceased to exist in this area in April 2013. There is now Peace Animals Pta Mita and PV, who organize mobile spay and neuter clinics.
Following upon our Amigos de Bucerias breakfast meeting in April, 2013, a team consisting of Julie Lee, Karen King, Peggy Wuth and Kim Cable talked to the vets in Bucerias who agreed to give us a discount for the spay and neutering of street dogs and cats belonging to Nationals of limited financial means. Fundraisers then started to pay for these procedures. Bi-lingual fliers were distributed to raise awareness.
The Spay n Neuter Team – subsequently renamed as the more attractive “Paws & Claws” – held their first fundraiser in August.
Paws & Claws have now incorporated an Animal Wellness Program specifically aimed at providing emergency medical treatment for street animals, or those belonging to a National of limited financial means, involved in a road traffic accident. The injured animal should be taken to one of our three participating vets. We will pay half of the cost, up to a maximum of 500 pesos.
We rely upon the knowledge and expertise of the vet in all cases to make the judgment call regarding the animal’s treatment. Contact us here for participating vets.
