Day Five of Our May Campaign!

5-27-12bWe are in the midst of an unprecedented campaign to reach more animals on Galapagos than ever. Thank you for making it possible through your support!

Our summer campaign is still in its first week! But already in less than one week we’ve reached animals far and wide on Galapagos.

We treated over 20 animals and performed 12 spay/neuters in our Santa Cruz Island clinic on Saturday! It’s amazing to see so many owners who want their animals to be well taken care of, and whom understand the importance of sterilizing their animals in this precious ecosystem. Our Santa Cruz team made up of University of Florida vet students also did invasive disease testing and gave treatments to the dogs who tested positive for bacterial infections.

And our grand total of horses treated on Isabela Island is 67! Our veterinary team on Isabela also treated five more dogs. They taught the horse owners how to prevent further injuries and chronic health problems in their horses. The response has been unbelievable. So many farm owners have been so eager to learn how to take good care of their working horses!

We have one more day on Santa Cruz, and then next week begins the spay/neuter campaign on San Cristobal Island, the capital city island of Galapagos.

Thank you to everyone who helped make this possible with your support. There’s a lot more work to do this summer! If you’d like to help keep making this possible, you can always donate to our campaigns here: http://darwinanimaldoctors.org/how-to-help/donate/
