online Animal health
We have been working to improve the health of dogs and cats in the Sierra Nevada region since 2011. Now we are currently at a standstill in the growth of our program due to the lack of an in-house veterinarian and enough funding. We are currently looking for funding to be able to have a permanent team for this project and its sustainability, in order to increase the impact in the communities with which we work.
For this program during the Covid-19 crisis we only offer online volunteer involvement. The Veterinary & Animal Well-being volunteer during 2021 - 2022 will help assist in the following areas of our program: creating educational materials for animal care and welfare and proposal writing and fundraising duties. Our goal is to be able to have a mobile clinic by 2023 - 2024 that allows us to spay and neuter animals in all the communities around the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta as well as having financial fluency to cover costs involved in the operations.
