Collaborative effort provides spay and neuter surgeries for Todos Santos pets

In early November, a team of eight veterinarians, three CSU students, and two technicians provided 197 free spay and neuter surgeries for the dogs and cats of Todos Santos, as part of a community clinic.

This collaborative event included many organizational partners and more than 30 volunteers from Baja California Sur, Colorado, and several cities in the United States of America. The Ejido of Todos Santos and Ariadna Sepulveda provided the location for the surgeries to take place, and the Secretaria de Salud of Los Cabos provided 190 free rabies vaccines. The delegado, Jesus Ramon Beltran Guluarte, and leadership of Todos Santos also showed support for the community collaboration.

CSU is grateful to all of the partners that made this effort possible, and benefited the health of dogs, cats and humans in the area.
