The Saga Humane Society would like to give our sincerest gratitude to everyone who helped in first of our October SNIP-a-thon clinics with Helping Paws Across Borders Oct.7-12. They were an international team of Veterinarians and Vet Tech’s who held Operation SNIP clinics at Saga Clinic, DFC and Caye Caulker. Helping Paws completed over 150 FREE spay/neuters and 200 vaccinations for our communities. The animals were sterilized, treated for internal and external parasites and vaccinated against disease. All items and services were donated to Saga HS and Helping Paws (USA NGO) by individuals to benefit San Pedro. San Pedro gains economically by having these visiting Veterinary teams. By sterilizing their pets, the community will become invested in the steps needed to control over population of domestic animals in San Pedro.

We appreciate these dedicated caring professionals for coming to assist the animals of Belize. Helping Paws worked with always changing conditions from a power outage, rain during our MASH clinic and even helped round up some strays. They even got a chance to help assist in an operation on Lucky a loggerhead turtle brought to Saga HS by Ambergris Caye Marine Turtle Program. Lucky had lost her back flipper to a shark bite. She was patched up and is now in recovery at the Hol Chan Marine Office. To continue the wildlife theme they stitched up a Wish Willie who had been attacked by a dog. We cannot say Thank You enough to these compassionate professionals.

A special Thank you to Mrs. Adaly Ayuso, for hosting our team during a MASH clinic in DFC at her residence. This was a tremendous help in bringing the medical teams to be closer to the animals and save the time and expense of transportation to the Saga HS clinic. We appreciate your generosity of spirit and commitment to your community.

We would like to give our Thanks to our local business community who helped sponsor this event and helped make these clinics such a success. It is with their support and donations that enable us to provide these services to our community. Please support those businesses that support their community.

 

Our staff, board and local volunteers were truly the best. They worked hard, helped immensely and we are lucky to have such dedicated supporters. It’s through perseverance like theirs that we are able to help our island animals. Thank you.

The goal of Operation SNIP is to sterilize 75% of the island animals in 3-5 years. This will STABILIZE the pet population. In doing so, virtually NO PETS will be strays, wandering and breeding freely. No animals will be born that will not have Forever homes. Saga HS has pledged to raise money or bring visiting Veterinary teams to offer low cost or free spay/neuter, with a goal of 1,000 animals per year during this project. Contact us if you can donate your time or services to the worthily cause.

Saga HS 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. Be available to assist in spay and neuter clinics when and where we might be needed. Interacting with the local children and making animal welfare educational material available to them.
 
Hopkins Humane Society will be in San Pedro Oct. 18-21. They will be bringing a team including Veterinarians and Vet Techs.  This group will focus on San Mateo.
More details to come.
