“The plans of the Franciscan Shelter of the Unprotected Animal (AFAD) are to carry out the tenth campaign for canine and feline sterilization in 2019. They will present the project to the new municipal authorities, to request their support and also to request the collaboration of the civil society” said Maura García Lezama, municipal delegate of the AFAD during surgeries performed on dogs and cats.
She added that there are plans to establish “mini-clinics” in the municipality of Progreso in 2019 to sterilize the largest number of dogs and cats possible, because in the annual campaign the number is limited by the time and cost of each intervention.
The Ninth Canine and Feline Sterilization Campaign began, which will continue today. The surgeries are scheduled to end at 7 o’clock at night.
“The goal is to sterilize 800 dogs and cats, which helps to avoid overpopulation,” said Lidiah Saleh Angulo, president of AFAD.
The campaign was carried out in the social room “Villa Las Rosas” which rent for two days is $ 7,000, with a heated area that was enabled as an operating room, where a team of 30 veterinarians sterilize cats and dogs.
The Planet Pethood group, represented by physicians Jeff Young and Antonio Ríos, participated in this sterilization day.
Lidiah Saleh stressed that the sterilization campaigns are aimed at preventing health problems in communities, such as the transmission of rabies, in addition to other human diseases and fecal contamination, with sterilization is intended to reduce the number of animals on the streets.
Maura Garcia stressed that each surgery has a cost of $ 550, but the campaign is totally free, and it is done thanks to the support of altruistic groups and the foreign community formed by citizens of Brazil, Portugal, the United States, Canada and the Philippines residing in Progreso, Chelem and Chicxulub.
The owners of dogs and cats arrived at the place where the surgeries were performed, on Calle 92 between 33 and 35, at 7 a.m. After registration, volunteers applied anesthesia to the pets and prepared them for the operation.
