Saga Humane Society Helping Paws
Saga Humane Society is pleased to announce an October SNIP-a-thon.During the month of October Saga HS will be hosting two different visiting Veterinary groups to hold free spay/neuter clinics for the low income residents of Ambergris Caye. In addition to the free spay/neuters the teams will be doing additional CDV vaccinations, and dog training sessions for public. The goal is to sterilize over 300 island pets during the month.
Helping Paws Across Borders will be in San Pedro Oct. 7-10. They will be bringing a team of 15 including Veterinarians, Vet Techs, and dog trainers. This group will focus their efforts on the neighborhoods of DFC, San Juan and Downtown. Because of limited space at the Saga HS clinic, MASH (Mobile Animals Surgical Hospital)type clinic will be held in DFC at Mrs. Adaly Ayuso. This will allow the medical teams to be closer to the animals and save the time and expense of transportation to the Saga HS clinic.
Helping Paws Across Boarders stated goal is to reach out to other countries and make a difference in the lives of abused and neglected companion animals. Supply medicine and medical equipment to local Animal Shelters. To educate local clinic volunteer’s in shelter medicine. Stop overpopulation of companion animals in undeveloped countries.
