Dear friends and followers,

We are here today in Ouvea, the most Northern island of the Loyalty Islands which are part of New Caledonia.  A team of people comprised of a veterinary Guy Kane, the Society for the Protection of Animals  and us, Brent and Ana of Catamaran Impi are helping to take care of domestic animals. 

Normally there is no veterinary on the island so we have come across all kinds of ailments and injuries.  Most frequently though we need to help the locals with controlling the numbers of cats and dogs by sterilization. This costs about $50 per animal.

We, Catamaran Impi, provide accommodation, food and transport for the rest of the team, and promote their cause.  Guy as a qualified vet is in charge of operations and is ably assisted by Marie Martin, president of the Society for the Protection of Animals in New Caledonia.

In 4 days we have been able to help some 70 animals and we have now been asked to help the two other Loyalty Islands, Lifou and Mare.  We hope to conduct these campaigns in January and May.

We are appealing to all sailors who enjoy the beauty of these islands to contribute a few dollars or pounds towards helping the local people here who have no access to vets, but are super kind hearted and who try to take care of their animals in the best way they can.  

The sea is super blue here, there are smiles on all the people's faces, let's just make that smile a little wider by Helping them to Help  Animals.  

This campaign is a tribute to our Abandoned Island Dog Moose, who started our animal welfare campaign in New Caledonia.  We are supported by the Down Under Rally Go East whose cruisers make a donation to our cause. 

With love, sailing catamaran Impi

Dear friends,

Brent has finished a movie about our sterilization campaign in Ouvea. This campaign was a great success and brought people together in a joint venture. Guy Kane, the flying sailing vet would like to carry out similar projects in the other two Loyalty Islands. The Society for the Protection of Animals has already pledged $6000 for this project and we hope to secure about another $1000 from Australian sailors via the Down Under Rally. It would be great if we could hit the $1000 mark here on GoFundMe. Have a peep at what your money achieves! With lots of gratitude to all the donations already received Ana
