Meet Consie von Gontard, the lead trapper for #operationcunucu in Aruba! This will be Consie’s 4th campaign volunteering with Animal Balance. She comes to us with loads of experience, including starting her own spay/neuter group in 2000, working on Isla Mujeres, Mexico and Bimini, Bahamas. She has also worked for RAVS International, primarily as a trapper and handler, as well as teaching trapping and humane capture for them. In Aruba, Consie will be leading the team working the humane capture of some of the estimated 150 dogs living in the local dump. The AB trappers work tirelessly, often into the wee hours of the morning, baiting and watching traps, transporting trapped dogs to the clinic, and making sure that dogs are returned to the areas that they were trapped in. At the clinic, these dogs will be sterilized, vaccinated and have their medical needs attended to.
TNR (trap, neuter, release) is one of the most humane ways we can help control the population of homeless dog and cat communities that have become unmanageable.
Thanks to the dedication of Consie and her team, these dogs will be able to lead much healthier, happier lives.
