THE STORY:

Pura Vida para Mascotas or in english, Pure Life for Pets, is a non profit organization located in Grecia, Costa Rica. The mission is to educate and engage the people of Costa Rica with their pets. Our fundraising provides, sterilization surgery for unwanted or abandoned pets as well as financial help to those that want to do the right thing by not allowing their pets to breed at will. PVPM also sponsores an Adoption Fair, helps provide pet food and medical care to animals at the local rescues as well as trying to guide them in proper care of the animals in their charge. The overpopulation problem is very bad here with dogs and cats roaming the streets and breeding at will. There is little enforcement of Animal Welfare laws and when the dogs are picked up by our Federal agency, SENASA, they are often doomed to euthanasia because there is no facility to put them in. If the rescue groups cannot save the dogs they can be euthanized the following day. The conditions that many of the dogs are kept in, with many rescues, are deplorable by any standards with as many as 30 dogs in a small 100 x 100 ft. lot. If there is any disease brought into the yard, all the animals are at risk because there is no way to quarentine a sick animal. It is like a death camp when there is an outbreak of parvo or distemper. All of these dogs need to be sterilized and vaccinated. There are many expats here in Costa Rica doing what they can by helping with rescueing, immunizations and sterilization but the community members often have no form of transportation to get their animals to the Spay Neuter or shot clinics. This Vehicle would offer an opportunity to go into even the most remote villages to offer large scale clinics.
