WUFAW is proud to sponsor spay/neuter programs in Southeast Asia. Working with the Vietnamese animal welfare groups Paws For Compassion, we provide funding and support for ongoing efforts to spay and neuter dogs.
We had the pleasure of meeting one of the founders of animal welfare group Paws For Compassion, Lexie Gray, back in 2017 during one of her trips to the States. We immediately formed a bond over the work we were both doing to fight the dog meat trade in Southeast Asia.
Since then, Lexie and her partner have gone on to build a bigger team with a farther reach in Da Nang, Vietnam. They secured a facility where they house dogs and cats up for adoption, increased their local volunteer roster and even have veterinarians from around the world flying in to donate their time.
Mobile Veterinary Clinic
Last summer when WUFAW was finally in a position to help, we started sponsoring spay and neuter weekends for dogs. Four Paws International sponsors the cats. In December, we funded the first mobile vet clinic to Tam Ky, a small rural town that was in desperate need.
To date we have covered the costs for the sterilization and vaccination of over 100 dogs.
In March we also serviced our first Pagoda where there is a large population of stray animals, sterilizing and vaccinating dogs.
