|Volunteer veterinarians, veterinary technicians, assistants and helpers come together to create M*A*S*H* style mobile animal sterilization clinics on islands around the world.|
|Animal Balance is a non-profit organization dedicated to benefiting island communities and their inhabitants through large-scale animal sterilization campaigns. We believe that communities need community-based programs in order to be sustainable, so we organize volunteers from around the world to run clinics, train stakeholders, and inspire people one neighborhood at a time.|
Where We Work
Animal Balance works on island nations and territories where persistent human-animal conflicts exist or where invasive species have a negative impact upon biodiversity.
We believe that our best chance for success lies in adopting the leading procedures for sterilization and treatment of animals. We furthermore utilize only methods that ensure the process of capture, surgery, release, and follow-up are as humane as possible. While our procedures follow rigid, proven protocol, our strategies are as diverse as the communities where we work. No long-term, effective animal control program can exist without engaging all of the stakeholders, so we collaborate with community members, governments, NGOs, and corporations to create broad coalitions. We also engage with the scientific community and contribute troves of useful data on population statistics and animal health to ensure that current projects can improve future projects.
As a volunteer driven, donor and grant funded organization, we rely upon the generosity of others from around the world and in the countries where we work to make great things happen. Help us make a difference to thousands of animals every year by making a donation today or finding out how to become a volunteer.
