We're getting ready for our first Spay Clinic in 2020!
By Margaret Dean-Smith - Project Leader
Thanks to your generous donations, we have secured enough funds to organize our first Spay Clinic in 2020! We have identified the venue for our first Clinic of 2020 in the South of Eswatini around the town of Nhlangano. The local Vet will be looking for a suitable school with the required facilities and a community in need of our Spay/Neuter services. If all goes well, we should be able to hold the Clinic in May. The drugs have been ordered and we await their arrival from South Africa in the next few weeks. Our next task is to obtain a formal permission from the local Traditional Authority and ensuring that we have enough volunteers to help run the Clinic.
Our educational programme will commence over the next few weeks with the assistance of the local Vet and his staff, at schools and Dip-tanks close to the venue, thus ensuring that the community fully understand the positive benefits of spaying and neutering their cats and dogs. They will also confirm that we will vaccinate, de-worm and treat all minor ailments at the Clinic.
Our aim is to spay/neuter at least 50 pets and will have the capacity to treat at least 100 others at the Clinic. While attending the Clinic pet owners will also be advised how best to care for their pets and how they can keep them healthy going forward. The pictures attached are from our previous Spay Clinics. We will keep updating you with new pictures as we get ready for the upcoming Spay Clinic!
Please note that GlobalGiving has a Matching Donation Campaign running from March 23rd to 27th and we would appreciate any donation you are able to make to ensure that we can organize more Spay Clinics this year.
