Paws Across the Border, Inc.
Our mission is to co-sponsor free spay/neuter clinics in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, a city of more than 100,000 stray companion animals. To date, we have completed 3 clinics, operating on more than 400 cats and dogs. We plan to return to Juarez in Spring, 2005 for a fourth. In addition to the actual surgeries, our vets from the US train local Mexican vets in the spay/neuter surgical techniques so that the clinics can be held on a more regular schedule. Additionally, we educate local residents in proper animal care. Our future plans include setting up Ciudad Juarez with the equipment necessary to continue this work while we move on to other areas of the world where the companion animal population is out of control.
