In April 2016, the Foundation for Veterinary Aid International (FVAI) in conjunction with Darwin Animal Doctors (DAD) and the Agencia de Regulacion y Control de la Bioseguridad (ABG) sterilized 112 dogs and cats in the isolated communities of Santa Cruz Island in the Galapagos Islands.
Introduced to the islands by man, dogs and cats reproduce at will and are a threat to the local species of the islands such as the famous tortoises, marine iguanas, sea lions, blue-footed boobies…FVAI is proud to contribute to the protection of these unique animals!
