"No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted." -Aesop
All of us have the potential to do something for the greater good and for us, the Antigua Street Dogs Association, it is preventing the abundance of unwanted & unloved animals that end up suffering on the streets of Guatemala. Working with local municipalities we provide educational presentations in the local schools and offer regular spay/neuter/vaccine clinics in these local, low income villages. We believe effective change needs to come at a grass roots level, because simply rescuing animals off the street is honorable and needed work, but simply does not change the long-term outcome on a big enough scale. As an association, we believe that working in cooperation with the communities to develop a sense of understanding, trust and acceptance is of crucial importance.
We know the road ahead will be long and hard at times, but with the support of amazing people like yourselves, our own continued passion and vision to make things better for the animals - the ripple effects of positive change will be achieved. To date we have facilitated 8 spay/neuter clinics in the villages of San Juan del Obispo and Santa María de Jesús. On each clinic day we are able to sterilize between 15 and 25 dogs and cats. This small but significant amount has saved literally hundreds of unwanted animals already in our first year of work.
Q250 or $35 sterilizes one animal.
We are confident that change will come, one dog, one village, one community at a time.
