Summer Happenings

The Pet Services Committee has had one meeting and another is pending. Twelve of the 15 members were present for the first meeting, which consisted of a brainstorming session and training information. It is a daunting task, but with the commitment of the committee members, it will be worth it for the animals of Vancouver.

The Northwest Territories SNP is officially scheduled for August 28th to September 10th. Thanks to much work by CAAT member Dr. Gord Krebs, a team of Veterinarians and Technologists will travel to four villages over two weeks. They hope to vaccinate and sterilize 250 to 300 dogs.

Initial plans are in the works for a SNP in Trinidad in November. A woman there who runs a shelter has contacted us asking for help. She has one veterinarian who works at the shelter, but cannot keep up with all the strays that run the streets. We hope to send a team of 2-3 veterinarians and 6-8 technologists.

If you would like further information, please go to, or call 1-888-500-3330.
