South Sudan's 1st Spay/Neuter Campaign

37836728_1553362825121450_r.jpegWe are a small group working with Animal-Kind International (a 501(c)(3) organization that supports animal welfare organizations in poor countries, mainly in Africa) to raise money to hold South Sudan's 1st ever spay/neuter campaign.  Having witnessed the increasing numbers of unwanted dogs and cats on the streets of Juba, South Sudan's capital, and the associated cruelty, we decided to work with South Sudan's Ministry of Livestock & Fisheries and local vets to organize a 10-day spay/neuter clinic. 

During the 10-day campaign, we aim to sterilize 500 dogs and cats, who will also be provided a health screening, rabies vaccination, and basic care, including de-worming and treatment of external parasites, skin, ear, and eye problems, and injuries and wounds.

Importantly, we have enlisted the help of Kenya SPCA who have agreed to send 3 staff to South Sudan for the duration of the clinic to train South Sudanese vets and vet techs in high volume spay/neuter; train "cat and dog catchers" to humanely handle animals; and train community organizers to manage a campaign and provide humane education.

A significant focus of the campaign will be humane education for children and adults with the intention of using this clinic as a means of encouraging kinder treatment of animals.

Finally, with a cadre of trained local people and with the equipment and supplies obtained, our group intends to continue this spay/neuter and animal care effort so that spay/neuter will substitute for the inhumane alternatives currently used--poisoning and shooting.
