What we do
At Darwin Animal Doctors, we believe all animals deserve access to vet care. Our veterinarians and support staff are committed to giving our patients the best treatment – in the clinic or in the field.
Since starting in 2010, DAD has treated thousands of animals and prevented hundreds of unwanted litters. Our emergency medicine has saved and improved the lives of animals who would otherwise have been left to suffer alone.
Humane education is the key to creating long-term change and inspiring children to care for the animals and their planet. As the only provider of general humane education in the Galapagos, we are involved with schools and the community to teach critical lessons for a kinder world.
LUSH Charity Pot generously provided sponsorship for the implementation of a humane education program and through our partner HEART we have developed a humane education curriculum specific to the Galapagos.
We strongly encourage spaying and neutering as a method of humane population control on Galapagos. We also provide regular deworming treatments against parasites that can infect wildlife and teach owners about keeping their cats indoors and walking their dogs on leashes.
The magical creatures of the Galapagos are found nowhere else on Earth. By invitation of the Galapagos National Park, DAD provides life-saving veterinary care to endemic wildlife. Patients include blue-footed boobies, tortoises and Galapagos sea lions.
