Wishlist Wednesday

Before I present this "Wish List Wednesday" ...

The Spanky Project is please to announce a wonderful collaboration.
Sociedad Patrimonio Comunidad y Medio Ambiente (SPCMA), Laika Veterinary Clinic -Habana Vieja and the Spanky Project will work together to provide 100 free spay/neuters in Old Havana.

On November 28th the Spanky Project, headed by Terry Shewchuk, and three Canadian Veterinarians will arrive in Havana for a one week stay.
During this week the Canadian and Cuban veterinarians will work side by side and have practical and theoretical exchanges.

On this trip the main course will be canines and felines with a side of equine evaluation.
The trip will culminate with the spay/neuter of 25 dogs which were previously rescued from the streets of Old Havana.

The rescue of strays is an ongoing program which I will expand upon in another posting.

In addition to our delivery of the supplies for 100 sterilizations we will bring meds and instruments for use in local veterinary clinics.

In February we will again travel to Havana where that week's work will wrap up with a 50 spay / neuter day. If you are in the veterinary field we are welcoming expressions of interest for February.
