Mission: We bring veterinary care to developing countries and run a full-time, free veterinary clinic in the Galapagos Islands.
Results: Treated over 10,000 animals, all for free. Volunteers and donors will help us keep it that way! The more funds we raise, the more animals we can save. Our model can be exported from the Galapagos, Ecuador to more countries and we start operations in Belize in 2017.
Target demographics: animals
Direct beneficiaries per year: 2,534 animals directly, 16 endangered species indirectly, and have 40 volunteers from 9 countries.

Programs: We provide free veterinary services for domestic animals and wildlife in developing countries. Humane education is an essential part of our operations for creating lasting solutions. We work within the communities by creating veterinary clinics and providing veterinary training.
