And The Prize Goes to...

The Great Canadian Giving Challenge is over for another year.
The $20,000 grand prize winner was randomly drawn on July 1st, Canada Day!
Congratulations to Sistering A-Woman's Place.
Sistering is a multi-service agency for at-risk, socially isolated women and trans people in Toronto who are homeless or precariously housed. 
As a women’s organization, their focus is on changing social conditions for women and trans people in all their diversity, through programs guided by the principles of anti-racism and anti-oppression.

Thank you to all who gave to the Spanky Project during June's Great Canadian Giving Challenge.
Special thanks to our repeat donors and ongoing supporters.
We could not do ... what we do ... without you.
Here is a recap...

With a pandemic gripping the world our best laid plans have changed.
The Oficina del Conservador de la Ciudad de Trinidad  
 has cancelled our December campaña and most other public programs for the remainder of 2020
At this time! ...
We are hoping for campañas in ...
Havana - December (resheduled from September)
Trinidad 2021

We have been told to plan for Trinidad, Cuba in 2021.
Sterilization and deparasitizations
Our surgery is of the highest standard.
Education is a cornerstone of our work in building sustainability.
Public education is also crucial.
We collaborated with the public school next to our campaña to increase awareness of animals in the community.
Again we will bring art supplies.
Children create drawings about caring for animals.  
We look forward to reuniting our team and welcoming new members to the Spanky Family.
Spanky Project Team Trinidad 2019

In February we arrived, in Havana, with our entire “controlled drug’ supply for 2020. 
We pre-positioned $13,545.32 worth of anaesthesia, sedation and pain control medications.
This will be sufficient for our goal of 1000 spay/neuters in 2020. 
We like to prepare for the unexpected.. like a "PANDEMIC".
Medications are in place for our goal of 1000 spay/neuters in 2020.
We sterilized 522 in February... only 488 to go!

Join us by sponsoring a spay for $30
Become a monthly donor for a little as $5 / month.
Over the year that funds two sterilizations.
Your gift will make a huge impact going forward.
