World Vets in Dominican Republic- 385 Surgeries

402210764_10159931966579021_8854682072379031247_nWorld Vets’ volunteers returned from the Dominican Republic last week after 3 consecutive days of spay and neuter surgeries and veterinary checkups for pets of the Punta Cana community. The World Vets team, in collaboration with Dogs and Cats of the Dominican Republic and their local vet volunteers, performed 385 successful sterilizations, free-of-charge for local pets and their owners. Animals also received rabies vaccinations provided by the country’s government, and some received various other crucial surgeries and/or health treatments. Thanks goes to the volunteers for their skill, professionalism, and dedication to helping so many animals. Thanks also to Mark and Debbie Diekmann and Sylvia Mendez of DCDR, and to the many supporters who provided their time, donated water and snacks, and everyone who came together to help make this campaign a success.
