Our team is on the ground on San Cristobal, Galapagos! They will begin to provide FREE spay/neuter surgeries for cats and dogs, and DHLPP vaccinations for dogs TOMORROW! All of this will be happening in the BRAND NEW spay/neuter clinic that was built by Agencia de Regulación y Control de la Bioseguridad para Galápagos (ABG) to permanently serve the cats and dogs on the island.
Having permanent veterinary facilities on the islands has been a dream of both Animal Balance and ABG since we formed a partnership 15 years ago and began to provide humane population management solutions for cats and dogs on the islands. This dream was realized on Santa Cruz 2 years ago, and is now a reality on San Cristobal.
Dra. Marilyn Cruz, our longtime friend and Director of ABG, surprised Emma with the clinic, having kept construction a secret until we arrived on the island. It was an emotional scene when Emma and the team got to view the clinic for the first time. We cannot wait to work in this beautiful new building! Thanks to ABG for their continued partnership, and to Galapagos Conservancy for providing funding for supplies for our MASH clinics. We will be offering 6 days of spay/neuter surgery on San Cristobal and Isabela beginning tomorrow.
Please consider making a donation to help support this work, which continues to improve the lives of cats and dogs on these amazing and precious islands.
