Mayan Families' Fundraiser:

Hope for the Animals

Mayan Families' Photo

THE STORY:

The Lake Atitlan region of Guatemala's highlands is plagued with an overpopulation of stray animals. Aside from the concerns this raises over the animals’ general welfare, it also causes untold problems in the spreading of diseases (such as rabies and parasites) as well as posing a danger to native wildlife.

The Hope for the Animals program works to do the following:

  • Sterilization and Vaccination Clinics:  In collaboration with one of the only licensed, practicing veterinarians in the Lake Atitlán region, we offer free and low-cost sterilization clinics monthly, or as our funding allows.
  • Education: Our School Education Program provides awareness in humane handling and treatment of animals.
  • Partnering:  We have joined with San Carlos University in Guatemala City to provide practical experience to Guatemalan Veterinary students with a local Veterinary clinic.
  • Animal Rescue: Where animals are found to have been injured or abandoned we work to re-home these animals.

Mayan Families is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code in the USA and all donations are tax-deductible, as allowed by US law.
