G-PAW’s motto is “making a difference one animal at a time,” and in February the group made a difference for 142 animals, reports G-PAW organizer Judy Reisman, giving the results of the most recent Guanacaste Province Animal Welfare spay and neuter campaign.
“February was a record month with 142 animals neutered during two days of clinics in Líbano, one in Tilarán and two in Guatuso at the Maleku reservation,” she writes. “In addition to the surgeries, all animals were also dewormed and got an application of flea, tick and botfly preventive oil. Many were also vaccinated.”
Judy will be back in Costa Rica in May, when she hopes to hold a clinic at Parcelas de Quebrada Azul and another in Tilarán.
