Santo Angel Deparasitization - Good to be back

In 2011 we began to solidify our presence in Habana Vieja.
Working with the Oficina del Historiador Ciudad de la Habana and 
Sociedad Civil,Patrimonio, Comunidad y Medio Ambiente
we came to know of Gilberto Valladares Reina (aka Papito) 
and his community project
Barrio Santo Angel was a neighbourhood being rejuvenated.
Papito and Artecorte were the driving force behind change.

Later in 2011 we returned to help celebrate the renovation and reopening of the neighbourhood 
Consultorio Veterinario.
On September 28, 2011 we held mass deparasitization for the community and Habana Vieja.
486 registered .. we treated more.
Mass deparasitization events are usually the final event 
of one of our campaña weeks.
For World Spay Day Week 2018 we held two.
One to kick off the week ... another to close out the week.
 To start the week, at our request, we were back in Santo Angel with Artecorte.
This neighbourhood has certainly been transformed and
 a must see if you visit Havana.
It was wonderful to be welcomed back.
Terry - Spanky Project
Papito- Founder Artecorte  
Dr.Luis (Luisito) - Zoonosis Habana Vieja
Dr.Yoel - Veterinarian Aquarium de la Habana Vieja

Zoonosis gets a bad rap.
It is the agency which collects strays in the streets.
Some of the methods of some of the workers give it that reputation.
 But, Luisto awesome.
He is Zoonosis' veterinarian for Habana Vieja.
 He always brings rabies vaccine to our campañas and helps out.
 Here, he's handing over the rabies vaccination certificate.
Papito, Adriana and Artecorte made this a fun day.
There was something for everyone.
We had clowns!!!
Dra.Marina does not appear to be a fan of clowns.
There were also contests.
Here's the winner of "My pet looks like me".
 It was a great morning.
We were all very happy with the day.
135 dogs/cats were treated.
And you wondered about the SCISSORS

Our sterilization campaña took place between the two deparasitizations.
We sterilized, deparasitized and vaccinated 156 pet cats
Our second mass deparasitization of the week was in the heart of Habana Vieja at...
Civil Society for Heritage, Community and the Environment
Sociedad Civil,Patrimonio, Comunidad y Medio Ambiente

When the last puppy was served...
Canadian Veterinary student Jaime Yoon bought us
 all churros.
 A huge thank you to 
Dr. Lorraine Chalkley
Southfork Animal Clinic,Murphy Texas.
She contacted her suppliers and they came through with a huge donation of flea/tick prevention.
