Spay/Neuter and Vaccinate a Street Dog in Chile
Roll over image to zoom in
Animal suffering is a problem around the world. Just $20 U.S. will go a long way towards improving one dog's quality of life in Chile, and also help make sure that future generations of dogs are wanted and cared for.
In south-central Chile, the majority of dogs are uncontained, unsterilized, and unvaccinated against common canine diseases. With each litter born on the streets, canine overpopulation worsens, leading to malnutrition, untreated injuries, and the spread of diseases, including rabies. Many dog bite victims are small children, bitten on or near the face, and occasionally these attacks are fatal.
All of these problems stem from a common cause: Allowing dogs to live and die on the streets. It's a problem that can only addressed through a two-pronged strategy of community education and providing care to the dogs who are suffering needlessly.
