Havana 500


But not all births are happy ones....
As our way of honouring Havana's anniversary,
 the Spanky Project plans to perform 
500 spays/neuters in February
This in support our ongoing effort to humanely reduce the number of unwanted street animals.
 We have enough supplies in storage in Havana for 375 sterilizations.
We need to buy and transport enough for another 125 surgeries. 
At a cost of $30 per surgery, that's $3750 that we need to spend NOW. 

Can you help....NOW?

For our American supporters

Trinidad - Thanks You!

Our first step into Trinidad was a great success.

Thanks go to many, but firstly to those who answered our
 appeal back in October 2018. 
Thanks to you we accomplished..
60 sterilizations
367 dog/cat deparasitizations and 
21 horse deworming.

During the set up day our welcome to Trinidad was made "official"
 as were we summoned to the assembly hall of the municipal government.
The Oficina de Conservador de Trinidad y el Valle de los Ingenios (OCCTVI) under the directorship of Duznel Zerquera Amador were our lead organization in Trinidad.
Duznel (left) and Vice Chairman of the municipal assembly
warmly greeted us and gave us their full support.

We were provided an excellent space to hold our campaña.
Across the street from Parque Cespedes
Each morning we were greeted by dogs, cats and their caregivers.
Joining our Havana Team were Veterinary students
 from Sancti Spiritus, the Provincial Capital.
To put on a mass campaña takes a big effort.
We thank you all!
