BENEFITING: ANIMAL BALANCE
The Galapagos is one of the earth's most treasured and fragile eco-systems. Our goal is to help humanely manage the overpopulation of cats and dogs and maintain the balance of these species on the islands. In 2004, Animal Balance signed a 10-year commitment to help the animals and people in the Galapagos. With 8 years under our belt, we are eager to continue our commitment in the region.
Using an amazing network of volunteers, Animal Balance sets up Mobile Animal Sterilization Hospitals (MASH) to provide a high volume of sterilization surgeries for cats and dogs in a short period of time. We are completely staffed by volunteers. All funds raised for this campaign will be put towards volunteer travel expenses, accomodations, food, and clinic supplies. During these campaigns, which typically last 1-2 weeks, we work closely with the community to provide education and empowerment to carry on the work once our organization has left.
Animal Balance is a global non-profit dedicated to creating positive change on islands around the world. With the help of our local partners, we create community-based population management programs for dogs and cats. We believe communities throughout the world wish to embrace cats and dogs and protect them with kindness and compassion. Through our foundational belief, we strive to protect the human-animal bond.
