The Clinics

Heavy rains and strong winds delayed the clinics in Matanzas Province. Finally, on June 14, 2012, the deworming clinic took place in a town of Colón. Dr. Sergio Chan who is a representative of Bayer Pharmaceutical for Cuba, supplied the medication. With the help of volunteers, Dr. Hanoi Dominguez took care of 32 dogs, two animals were also sterilized. There are plans to organize spay/neuter clinic for the area.

Helping hands are always welcomed 

Ingrid -  always there
Two days later, on June 16, 2012 in Matanzas City, a free spay neuter clinic was open for the residents with pets. Two teams were working: Dr. Hanoi Dominguez with his sister in law, and Dr. Slavik Zenkov assisted by Yudith. Anton, one of the best volunteers was preparing animals for the surgeries, and Ingrid was making sure that all was clean wrapped up properly after the campaign was over. The owners were helping with animals in the recovery room. Each one of them also received pamphlets about health and social benefits of pet sterilization.We are hoping that they will share the information and their own experience with friends and neighbours.

Because of the amazing skills of doctors, and dedication of the whole team, all animals recovered without any complications. Everybody is looking forward to... the next campaign.
