Helping Cubans help their animals, Dr. Belovich and Terry Shewchuk, directors of the Spanky Project www.spankproject.org travelled to Havana, Cuba. We worked closely with a talented team of Cuban veterinarians, veterinary students and volunteers to provide spays and neuters for 58 street dogs and cats over this past weekend, following a joint Canadian-Cuban Clinic Staff training session on Friday. This was a first class sterilization campaign, providing top veterinary care, including multimodal pain control and deparitization. The Spanky Project works in an approved capacity in Havana and is honoured to have a close relationship with the Veterinary School at the Agrararian University. We provide the Veterinary Students from various classes with a unique educational experience and hands on training that is otherwise not available in their curriculum.
Cake Lake Friends of Animush is composed of volunteer animal lovers, veterinary technicians and veteriarians who donate their time to travel and perform veterinary services including vaccinations, deworming and spays/neuters in fly-in First Nations communities in Northern Ontario and beyond.
Dr. Belovich makes volunteerism a part of his life. Every year he actively travels to places where pets and their owners need him most. Dr. Belovich makes animal healthcare, welfare, and education a priority.
Dr. Belovich's trip to Bearskin Lake with Cat Lake Friends of Animush was an incredible success. The team was able to do over 80 vaccines for local dogs and 31 spays/neuters. This was the second annual trip to the community and they were extremely thankful for all of the work the team did as they have seen a vast improvement in pet population and quality of life since their visit last year.
