Evolution through Compassion:#evolutionthrucompassion 10 years ago we held our first campaign on Isabela Island. Dr. Julie Levy showed us how to organize it and we started to build around that model adding humane education, vet and tech training, dog training classes and fun community events. Our local partners were CIMEI (the organization on Galapagos mandated to control invasive species) Our collective goal was to not only sterilize the cats and dogs, but also to provide the tools to the community in a fun way so that people could take responsibility for their pets. Each dog sterilized was awarded a new collar and leash for example and then the dog and human were signed up for dog training classes. We started trying out different programs and got creative!
