A World Vets team has just returned from San Andres Island.They operated our very first veterinary campaign on the Caribbean island. It was a great success. Their visit was also the very first of its kind. Never before had the island hosted such a large scale sterilization campaign that was executed by a foreign veterinary team.
To carry out the island wide campaign we had many local partners. Our team worked in collaboration with the island’s department of health as well as Colombian animal welfare group Pro Animal SAI. We even received support from the Colombian military stationed on the island. They brought us dogs from the local army base to receive surgery and treatment.
The abundant local support made the success of our team’s visit and campaign possible. Well over 300 animals received spay/neuter surgery and/or health treatments. We look forward to making a follow up visit to further our contribution towards the improvement of both animal and human health on the island.
