Negril Spay Neuter Clinics
Negril Spay Neuter Clinic
As a struggling developing country, the plight of Negril’s animals is bleak. Many are discarded in the street to fend for themselves having litter after litter, most of which starve. Some are considered nuisances and are stoned, chopped or poisoned.
Negril Spay Neuter Clinic operates a small Clinic in Negril, Jamaica. We are all volunteers, some local and some foreign. We receive no official funding and rely strictly on volunteers and donations. Our clinic provides surgeries, pays the veterinarians, and purchases supplies and medicine like anesthesia. We also purchase food for our many feeding stations. We are dedicated to providing the animals a fair chance at life.
Our clinic plays an important role in working towards reducing the number of unwanted, abused and abandoned animals in western Jamaica by implementing these desexing clinics.
Another service the clinic offers is education, especially to the children. We realize the key to achieving a society that values animals is through education. Teaching compassion to the children and allowing them to become part of the ‘team’ gets them involved. We always try to spread awareness about the need for sterilization and proper animal care.
The most important part of volunteering is to let people know that they do not have to continue to look away when they see cases of abuse and neglect. They can help! A small amount of money goes a long way here and we appreciate every little bit to further the cause.
Thanks for all your love and support. Please share this with friends and family. If everyone just donated $10 we would reach our goal and go from there. Thanks so much to all that have donated already, without you we would not be this far. The animals appreciate it and so do we.

Hello Paw Patrol Partners!
SUPER CLINIC... It was a Great Big Success! We successfully completed a large clinic with over 70 animals, most of which were street animals; that makes me very happy.
Two days, two vets, two techs and many volunteers. We helped 63 dogs, 4 cats, some severe mange cases we are treating, some malnutrition issues we are working on, 1 cherry eye, 1 surgery, 1 very sick puppy we need to pray for.
Where do I even start to thank people? You have all helped tremendously. Thanks to Phillip Veernoff Negril Yacht Club, Christine @The Spa Retreat , Mike @White Sands, Delia & Stephan @German Bar, Mary Veira, Winthorpe Wellington & Travelers for all your donations.
Now the volunteers Patricia Gayle and Orbra Harold on Intake, Sheryl Stark and Debbie Persaud, who are the Queens of Recovery. Leanne, Tiny, Syke's son all helped in recovery Sabine Bolenius who shows up every clinic no matter how tired she is.. Pete and Jason who helped lift and worked in Preop. Special thanks to the young men who came out and were a huge help . Q stick, Pirate, and Kwako the pick-up and delivery squad, they rounded up and delivered dogs to and from the clinic. Everyone in the recovery room, it was truly a team effort Dr. Rohan Smith, Dr. Mathew Brown, Jay and Dwayne. Little Bay Crew. Father James Bok, Taylor Cooney, Diane Endeavour, Micheline Gauthier who show up at every clinic just to give us support.
I thank all of you from the bottom of my heart♥. I could not do this without all of you. We rocked it as a Community. The best part was 80% of the animals were street animals...If I forgot anyone, please accept my apologizes.
Due to this Super Clinic, you can understand that we have depleted many of our supplies. Here is a list of things that we could use. Many people have found that their own Veterinarians are more than generous donating to our clinics.
Frontline or anything similar ie revolution
Flea collars, or Protector Spray
Small and medium dog collars and leashes (none left at all)
Muzzles any size
Dawn Dish Detergent Blue (none left)
Prescription bottles to put the Dawn in
Sutures (none left at all)
Gauze and cotton balls
Newspapers from our local supporters
Head lamps for the vets to use
Instruments (have your vets look in there storage areas for the ones they don't use anymore)
And of course,
MONEY (the cost of the drugs and material to do this large clinic is about $3000.00 US, so we have used up most of our money resources too.)
We could also use some form of Tattoo or way to identify the dogs we have already done...any suggestions?
♥LICKS AND LOVE FROM NEGRIL SMALL SPAY & NEUTER CLINICS.
Hello Paw Patrol Partners!
Many things have gone on in the last 2 months.
First, I would like to tell you of the new partnership we have with the JSPCA. They have been coming to Negril weekly to help with everyone's animal needs as well as doing spay and neuter to those who need. So far, we have done 4 weeks’ worth, we have spayed and neutered about four animals per clinic. Plenty of hurt animals are checked and helped as well. We also have many animals coming for shots, boosters and checkups.
This has been a great help with the street animals as they can now get consistent care. It also helps us to keep up with the spay and neutering so it is not so overwhelming.
As you all know, these clinics are not free. We receive a discounted rate, which helps us help the animals. A small clinic is costing us about $300.00 USD.
Next, I would like to acknowledge the sponsors of our past clinics. A big thank-you goes from us to you!
Thank you to The Spa Retreat for the donation of lunches.
Thank you to Rayon Hotel for the donation of lunches.
Thank you to German Bar who donated lunches as well.
Thank you to Swept Away for the donation of rooms.
Thank you to Pat Gayle for the donation of lunches.
Thank you to Gail Jackson at Treehouse resort for the donation of rooms for our vets.
Thank you to the Paw Patrol drivers, recovery team, transporters, walkers and pickers.
Thank you goes out to the Yacht Club for allowing us to do super clinics and Spay a Stray Day.
Thank you goes to Summerset Village for allowing us to have our weekly JSPCA clinics.
We are very grateful for anyone who has volunteered their time, money, yard and heart. Pulling together for a common issue we all believe in is very motivating. It makes us want to continue to help more and more. The clinics need you, the community, to make it a success...
Here is a list of items that the clinic always needs;
small & medium collars and leashes
headlamps so the Vet can see better when operating
Dawn Blue Dishwashing Detergent
Food & Money....are always appreciated...
As well as our weekly clinics, we are having a Spay A Stray starting on Friday April 15th. We are doing a one-vet clinic on Friday the 15th and a two-vet clinic on Saturday the 16th . I need food, rooms, newspaper, and drivers, but mostly I will need donations to pay for the strays to be spayed and neutered. This Spay A Stray Day is being held at the Yacht Club.
Also, JSPCA has in desperate need of NEWSPAPER...please if you have some I would be happy to pick it up.
Thanks for your continued support!

Hello Paw Patrol Partners!
Just wanted to say “Thank-you!” and update everyone on our plans for the 2016 Negril Small Spay & Neuter Clinic’s agenda.
As you know, the NSSNC purchased a container with hopes of building our own permanent location in the heart of Negril. However, our situation has greatly changed and so have our plans.
We have re-evaluated our situation and realizing that we no longer have access to a local vet, we have decided to put the permanent clinic on hold and continue with our small spay and neuter clinics on a regular basis.
We have sold the container for the price we paid for it and are directing the funds to our mobile spay and neuter clinics and the multiple feeding stations we have around town and surrounding areas. We will also be providing assistance for any injured animals, these clinics provide much-needed services to the community.
We will be having our first clinic in 2016 , the 3rd week of February in collaboration with the JSPCA.
Your donations are still greatly needed and appreciated.
Licks and Love,
♥Deb and the animals of Negril
On behalf of the Negril Spay & Neuter Clinic I'd like to say "yay! Thank-you!".
We have reached our first $5K milestone.
Your donations have helped us move forward with our 6th Spay & Neuter clinic, pay the vets, build a temporary hospital shelter, continue our feeding stations and purchase our building!
Thanks again and please continue to help if you can. We really appreciate it and so do the animals of Negril.
♥Deb and the dogs.
I would like to request that the clinic being held on the week of the 28th of August be held and announced in my son Wade sharp honor on the second anniversary of his death.
Put a little ink in the surgical site to identify that the dog has been spayed. For cats a small notched of the ear.
