Humane Population Control

Plans are coming together on the upcoming spay and neuter clinic in Kadavu, Fiji. We will be leaving the first week of January and stay for 2 weeks. We hope to be able to neuter 250 tribal dogs during our stay. This will dramatically cut back on the numbers of dogs that will be poisoned as a means of population control.

We have put a call out to all the veterinary clinic in British Columbia to assist us with our rather large supplies list for this mission. We are also placing pamphlets in pet stores and grooming salons to increase awareness of our efforts, which include preparing Disaster Preparedness Plans for local communities.

We received some disappointing news this week. After having been originally asked to appear on the Oprah Winfrey Show, the producers decided to go with other groups involved in the Hurricane Relief efforts.

We continue to receive donations from the generous public. I received a phone call from a Grade 3 teacher this week whose class had raised money from a Halloween Bake Sale after reading about us in a Langley newspaper. It was the students idea to hold the sale, and with the help of parents and their teacher, they raised $250! Way to go Ms. Sewards class!

Look for more posts as we continue planning our Population Control mission. We have been asked to have several more of these clinics, and hope to focus our efforts on remote areas in Canada. Thank you for your continued support!
