Earlier this month, we sponsored a 5 day wellness mission to Ratanakiri by our partner group PPAWS in Phnom Penh. 3 vets and 2 volunteers traveled to the North Eastern region to treat the dogs and cats in the impoverished community.
They were able to sterilize 28 dogs and cats; vaccinate, deworm and give flea medication to 256 others. Along with several other surgeries, including one for a gunshot wound. The team was also invited to give a presentation to the Department of Agriculture about the dog and cat meat trade.
These trips cost roughly $1100, so a little goes a long way. Making a huge difference in the lives of animals and the residents who love them.
The city of Siem Reap BANNED eating dogs just last month, which was a big win in the fight against the trade. Times are slowly changing and we look forward to the day that it’s the law for the entire country.
