B.C. Spay Neuter Foundation Mission Statement

To end unwanted litters of dogs and cats, homeless animal suffering, and overpopulation by providing low-cost, high quality, spay and neuter services. To promote and provide advanced spay and neuter education and training to veterinarians, while promoting the cause of humane animal care and responsible animal ownership through community education.

How we live our Mission Statement…

IMG_46941. Sterilization ClinicsThanks to volunteers and donors on both sides of the border, the Baja Spay Neuter Foundation has been able to conduct Clinics in Tijuana, Rosarito, Tecate, La Mision, Los Cabos, El Barril, Bahia de Los Angeles and Ensenada.  The Mobile Animal Spay/neuter Hospital (MASH) allows travel to remote communities that would otherwise not have access to quality, low cost spay and neuter services. In April 2010, some current B.C. Spay Neuter Veterinarians presented at an International Companion Animal Over-Population Forum at the Rosarito Beach Hotel and participated in an actual spay/neuter Clinic held under a tent on the hotel grounds.  for more info on clinics…

IMG_66772. Share knowledge and experiences of efficient Spay/Neuter techniques – B.C. Spay Neuter vets willingly share tips and techniques tailored to the specific needs of poor and remote communities throughout the world.  This economically efficient Spay/Neuter methodology has been tested, perfected and proven over the past 20 years. It employs commonly available surgical materials, an easily administered low cost anesthesia ‘cocktail’, and a process which allows maximum results in minimum time. Quality is never compromised; low cost does not equate to low quality.  Unlike many other volunteer organizations that go to remote areas to perform spay/neuter clinics, Baja Spay Neuter offers hands on training so local veterinarians are left with a repeatable, economical, and efficient process to ensure population control and can continue long after they are gone.  Example: Veterinarians trained in Los Cabo San Lucas have continued to hold Clinics weekly since 2011 in their community.

Many animals have never been to a vet before – only 13% of pets in Mexico ever do. Each and every Clinic provides the opportunity for the local community to learn more about animal welfare and the benefits of  spay or neuter for their animals, their neighbors, and their community.  The children are given a chance to view an actual surgery, to ask questions, and to participate in the recovery process with their pet. Written materials, DVDs and posters help to explain how the numbers of hungry, diseased, and homeless animals are reduced; and how the public health of the communities and neighborhoods can be improved. People are happier; the dogs and cats are healthier; and children are learning by example. Everyone wins For more info…
