8 years ago we were invited to help Santa Cruz Island too. We held campaigns on Santa Cruz, San Cristobal, Floreana and Isabela – this was truly an island-wide program now; CIMEI was established on the 3 main islands and were providing treatments and sterilizations, plus registration of all cats and dogs, humane education and advice. We had been intensively training the CIMEI vets who were on working visa’s from the mainland to help CIMEI. A wide network of community based programs had now been established to provide tools to people to take responsibility for their
pets. Change was happening, people were walking their sterilized dogs on leashes in town!
