Spay, Neuter & Veterinary Care Program

Global Strays knows that the overpopulation of suffering homeless animals can only be addressed by tackling the problem at its root. We believe we must reach the animals before they reach the streets and the shelter system. Our staff in Nicaragua and Colombia offer spay, neuter, and veterinary care clinics, free of charge, to families with pets in communities that would otherwise not have access to these services.

Testimonials

This is Juana Lopez with her dog Lulu. Lulu came to our clinic to get spayed but was suffering from malnutrition. Lulu was provided proper nutrition and was able to be spayed two weeks after.

When asked “Do you feel that this clinic has helped you?”
María Auxiliadora Brenes, replied: “Yes. I feel happy because I do not have the resources to go somewhere else, and this is a very special clinic to help all the poor people.”

When asked “How did you like the clinic today?”
Juana Idalia Molina Narvaez replied, “Very good. There is a passion for our and to spay and neuter them, free of charge. I want to thank the organization for supporting this, so there will be no more abandoned animals.”

This pet owner explained to Global Strays that she was happy to see the spay and neuter clinics here. At the moment, there are many abandoned animals in this rural area because many people come here to abandon their pets.
When asked why he brought his dog to the clinic, he replied “to sterilize it because it is restless and aggressive.”
