Spay/Neuter Clinics in Latin America

Maru Vigo knows how to tackle Latin America’s homeless-animal overpopulation crisis: Spay and neuter like there’s no tomorrow.

Not long ago, this longtime animal activist and PETA Augustus Club member and her team in Lima, Peru, helped her good friend and fellow advocate Haydee Alfaro and volunteers at a pop-up, high-volume sterilization clinic in Zamora, Mexico, and what they accomplished was jaw-dropping: 400 dogs and cats helped in two marathon days!

Maru’s friend Micaela Rodríguez helped achieve something similar in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where 191 animals were sterilized in two days.

And just when she’d earned a nice long rest, Maru was off like a flash to her next destination. With help from PETA’s Global Compassion Fund, she has launched sterilization clinics in low-income areas of Lima, where 80 animals have been “fixed” so far.

None of these animals will contribute to the homeless-animal overpopulation crisis.

Like Maru, You Can Help PETA Change Animals’ Lives

Pop-up clinics like these in Latin America can help reduce animal suffering for generations, as fewer unsterilized cats and dogs means fewer animals will be born and abandoned in communities that don’t have the resources needed to care for them all. Your gift to PETA’s Global Compassion Fund makes this critically important work for animals possible:
