Spay/Neuter Clinic 2014
The AAAS of Sosua, has a complete clinic and base of operations in order to provide an ongoing and consistent means of alternative animal population control in Sosua, Sosua Abajo El Batey and Charamico on the North Coast of the Dominican Republic. Our program is designed not only to change the manner in which animals are cared for and to control over population but to make your participation with us an easy and memorable experience.
Our trained volunteers are here waiting to assist you within a safe and efficient spay/neutering environment as your preferred schedule will allow on your visit.
Our pre-op team will prepare the animals for surgery to your specifications, monitor during surgery and post-op will monitor recovery and provide all that is necessary to help insure a rapid safe recovery.
Our anesthesia protocol is the safest, most predictable available here in the Dominican Republic. Used under the supervision of trained professionals this Isoflurance maintained protocol has proven to safely sedate/maintain pain control during the procedure ,most of our patients wake up smiling and are ready to go home within 2-3 hours.
Information is provided to owners concerning post op care as well as an emergency number if one arises.
We have many animals waiting for our assistance. Experienced skilled surgeons are needed throughout the year to we can maintain our local area and help assure no animal is abandon just for lack of assistance with spay/neuter vaccines.
AAAS is a non-profit organization established in 1998 located on the North Coast of the Dominican Republic and works within the areas of Sosua, which includes El Batey, Charimcos and Sosua Abajo. We are supported by donations here as well as thru Kathryn Neal Animal Relief Fund Corp a US 501c3 since 2007. Our goal is to maintain monthly in-house clinics with one–two veterinarians working on the average 10-15 surgeries per day for two to three days. We will also be organizing field clinics for those interested or wish to participate in “mash” style, high volume surgeries where we take the clinic to the people. These will be set up in problem areas where immediate relief is deemed necessary. They require 3-4 vets and a number of techs/assistants and AAASosua volunteers working together. These clinics are highly rewarding to all those that participate. (An example of a recent “Mash” clinic is shown on The Spay/Neuter clinic 2014 link at the top of this page - http://www.aaasosua.com/sprayneuter2014.html )
They also provide an excellent opportunity to “connect” with the country and interact with its local people, not to mention becoming acquainted with our phenomenal Dominican dogs.
