Veterinary Care Continues in Galapagos

326041674_741730820417045_959842773806102612_n World Vets’ Conservation Medicine Program continues to serve dogs and cats in the local community of San Cristobal Island in the Galapagos Islands. A range of veterinary services, including thousands of surgeries, hundreds of medical consultations, and other preventative and emergency care have been provided free-of-charge since the opening of World Vets’ veterinary clinic in November 2021. This first and only clinic on the island provides quality animal care, helps prevent pet overpopulation, and aims to protect the precious biodiversity of the Galapagos Islands.

Three week-long sterilization campaigns between January and April have already provided over 450 free spay-and-neuter surgeries this year. Two more volunteer teams are scheduled to participate in high-volume surgery campaigns in June and December. All planned and upcoming volunteer opportunities to Galapagos are posted to our trips page.

Our work is made possible by our amazing allies – volunteers, members, and donors. We are also thankful for our partner organizations, including Agencia de Bioseguridad para Galápagos, Animal Balance, Lakefield Veterinary Group and GAD Municipal de San Cristóbal Galápagos, for their invaluable sponsorship and collaboration.
