If you are going to be on island from May 2-8 Animal Welfare of Culebra (AWC) can use any & all helpers.
(AWC) in partnership with the Humane Society of PR, All Sato Rescue, The Animal Project, Island Dog, the Municipality of Culebra, & others is sponsoring a large-scale TNR (trap, spay-neuter, release) program on Culebra.
We have identified 5 areas to target for stray cats (one including Flamenco beach) & will be trapping, sterilizing, vaccinating, treating for medical issues, & then releasing back to live as a healthy, managed colonies.
We'll have several veterinarians on island & vet techs as well as experts in TRN from the states & are seeking folks to help with a variety of jobs (catching, trapping, cleaning cages, feeding, watering, labeling, etc.).
This project will be ongoing from May 2-8 (surgeries on May 5 & 6th) & we'll need folks helping from the 2nd (truck arriving from main island with supplies to unload/secure at La Cancha Bajo Techo-gym across from Palmetto) & then starting on the 3rd, catching & trapping-thus feeding, & cleaning.
This project can have a big impact on Culebra for the animals & people! Please won't you offer a hand?
Kindly contact me asap if you can assist with any of the above.
ps. please spread the word!
