Since the clinic opened, 386 cats, dogs, and puppies have received surgical sterilizations, dewormings, and consultations from veterinarians. Each sterilization and deworming program is a chance for Animal Balance to improve the lives of the animals and their families.
Galapagos Conservancy and Animal Balance have been working together since March 2022 to control the cat and dog population on the Islands humanely through sterilization, education and responsible pet ownership. The Galapagos Conservancy is committed to protecting the fragile ecosystems and native species of the Islands by preventing the overpopulation of pets.
We congratulate Animal Balance on the one-year anniversary of the Isabela Island Spay/Neuter Clinic. The clinic is a great example of how collaboration among organizations and communities can improve the quality life of animals and people on Galapagos. This initiative has had a positive impact on Isabela’s community and the animals that live there. We hope it will continue to be implemented for many more years.
