Darwin Animal Doctors


Spay and neuter campaign, San Cristobal

San Cristobal, Galapagos

And the campaigns continue! The most recent spay and neuter campaign was in San Cristobal, where the Darwin Animal Doctors team, along with the government agency in charge of protecting biodiversity, ABG, worked for three solid days to spay and neuter as many animals as possible. The team consisted of our Dynamic Duo, Dr. Stella and Dr. Justin, volunteer Kaat and veterinary technician students Tove and Ingrid. Alongside Dr. Rita from ABG and Dr. Fernando, the team were able to sterilize 44 dogs and cats in the three days, as well as offering general medical treatment to any animal in need.

We are really proud to be able to run these campaigns hand-in-hand with ABG. To make the biggest impact, both in the protection of the biodiversity of the Galapagos Islands and in the future for the animals that call them home, we need to be able to provide spay and neuter and veterinary services for every domesticated animal on every inhabited island. Thanks to this amazing partnership, we are taking huge steps forward in being able to make this a reality.
