World Vets Team in Sosúa
Last weekend there was a three day Spay/Neuter Clinic at the Municipal Basketball court beyond Charamicos with World Vets teaming up with AAASosúa and Animales en Peligro Puerto Plata.
The early Parasite clinics performed by AAASosúa teams on 10th and 17th May in Charamicos, Maranatha and Bella Vista were a great success.
People could also pre- register their animals for the Spay/Neuter Clinic. Some of these areas had no help in the past and will now become one of the new outreach areas supported by the AAASosúa. The benefits are not only to the local community, but also to the image of Sosúa and Charamicos in the eyes of the tourists as well as the welfare of dogs and cats.
Dr Rhonda Aliah lead the World Vets team, she owned a practice for 30 years and now is a Zoo Veterinarian and relief Vet! The team has 13 members including 5 Veterinarians some of whom have been on several World Vets missions before. Dr Mike Henes commented that it is was a luxury having Iso Anaesthetics and the AAASosúa knowledgeable and trained volunteers. A large number of pets were signed up and some of the animals were anxious but were comforted by their owners.
The extent of these field operations can only be appreciated. Four operating tables were prepared and three were in use with the fourth being ready for the next patient! Many donations received from World Vets bringing medicines and pharmaceuticals, GARF- for donating dog food and John Bommarito – for transportation.
Thank you all very much for the generous contributions especially on behalf of the animals!
