Over 3,000 dogs have been sterilized in our campaigns to date!
Baja Dogs La Paz, Inc., returned to Calonia Cardancito in March, where demand remains great, to sterilize 89 dogs in a single campaign day. In addition, we held 3 “mini” campaigns, including two in the Chametla neighborhood and another in Cardancito, bringing our total for March to 234 pets sterilized. Another 79 individual vouchers for in-office surgeries were given to those who were unable to sterilize their dogs on the campaign days for health or other reasons. That brings our total number of sterilizations to date to 3,196!
We would like to thank the local neighborhood schools for allowing us to utilize their space for monthly campaigns. This allows us to provide much needed shade for the campaigns as the weather gets warmer. As always, we also thank Dr. Fernando and his team, Dr. Mario and his team for providing their veterinary services, and Franky Hanon for providing their educational program to campaign attendees.
Baja Dogs La Paz, Inc., is 100% volunteer run and provides sterilization surgeries to underserved communities entirely from your donations. Our sterilization programs help prevent unwanted births that can quickly overwhelm families and help reduce the overpopulation of stray and unwanted pets. A single $25USD donation pays for one sterilization surgery. Local residents make appointments for the surgeries in advance of campaign day, and bring their pets on campaign day. Volunteers help check in the families with their dogs, weigh the dogs, and organize them pre-surgery. More volunteers help clean equipment and care for the dogs post-surgery until they are ready to go home with their families. Everyone has a part to play, and it is amazing to see how the families wait eagerly for to take their beloved pets home afterward. We thank you for your donations and thank all the volunteers who help us with these campaigns, we truly appreciate you!
