Planned Pethood International has broken ground on its international training center located in Puerto Morelos, Mexico. This new building will function as both a veterinary clinic for local residents and a training center for up to six visiting veterinarians who wish to train in high volume spay/neuter surgery.
Veterinarians from all over the world will be provided board and training while they stay at the facility. Fifty to one hundred veterinarians from Mexico will be trained annually in addition to others from the United States and Europe. Our goal is to sterilize at least 3,000 companion animals yearly and provide two humane education classes monthly to the local population.
Once veterinarians are trained in high volume surgery, they will return to their own communities to start a Spay It Forward program designed to increase sterilization rates in their area.
Ultimately, this clinic and training center will reduce the roaming dog population in Quintana Roo, Yucatan, and Campeche and increase the health and welfare of roaming dogs in the area. Moreover, we expect a reduction of dog bites and attacks perpetrated by roaming dogs to increase quality of life for the residents, as well as providing affordable veterinary care to owned animals.
Income from the clinic will fund the training center so that it may operate in perpetuity.
In order to reach all of our goals, we need your help. Please consider donating to Planned Pethood International via the donation tab. Donors able to give over $1,000.00 USD will be honored with a plaque at the training center.
