Pagoda Mission in Cambodia

Another successful Wellness Retreat is in the books! May 29 – June 1, 2020 we sponsored a 4 day Spay/ Neuter Mission in Cambodia with our partner group Phnom Penh Animal Welfare Society (PPAWS) 

Day 1 and 2 they visted Wat Teuk Thla Pagoda with a small veterinary team and performed 27 sterilizations of both cats and dogs. The monks showed real interest in the welfare of the animals and watched the team work, even helping to assist the Vets.

Day 3 and 4 they visited two more Pagodas, Wat Traeuy Kaoh and Wat Or Doung Preng.
The team vaccinated, defleaed and dewormed as many animals as possible, again with the monks assisting.

The reason why these trips are so important is because of the education that is happening in the community. They learn how to properly treat and care for dogs and cats. Also with the spaying/neutering we can dramatically cut down on strays who are then caught and used for the Dog and Cat Meat Trade.
