Community Spay/Neuter Clinics
International Spay/Neuter Network (ISNN) conducted its first Community Spay/Neuter Clinic in Kingston, in December 2008. We have continued these clinics several times each year, both in Kingston and other centers such as Negril, Ocho Rios, Montego Bay and Falmouth, providing free sterilization for stray dogs and cats, as well as for pets whose owners cannot afford traditional veterinary care. Each clinic runs for three consecutive days with the goal of sterilizing 300 animals per clinic.
Team of Volunteers
ISNN has a team of veterinarians and technicians with extensive experience in high-volume, high-quality spay/neuter protocols. These volunteers work alongside local veterinary professionals, sharing ideas and techniques, and working towards the common goal of reducing overpopulation of companion animals in Jamaica.
We are always looking for volunteers to help with community clinics. If you’re a veterinary professional with experience in high-volume spay/neuter, we want you! Please contact us for more information.
Another component of our Spay/Neuter Program involves a longtime partnership with Animalcare Veterinary Hospital, where low-cost spay/neuter services are made available to needy owners. They also work with us to spay/neuter stray animals that are collected in nearby communities and released after surgery.
We hope this program will soon be expanded, as other veterinary practices are recruited to join in our lifesaving efforts. If you are affiliated with a veterinary practice in Jamaica and would like to learn more about partnering with ISNN, please contact us.
