Slowing down the pet overpopulation
There are often stray dogs and cats roaming the streets in Corozal, Belize, looking for food in garbage cans. Many of them are gentle, starved, dehydrated, ill, or injured.
Initially, the program was created as an alternative to strychnine poisoning administered by town councils to reduce the number of ill, abandoned, or aggressive dogs.
With our spay and neuter program, and together with our partner organizations who facilitate adoptions and rehomings, we are reducing the number of stray cats and dogs living on the streets.

What are the benefits of spaying or neutering your pet?
top 3 reasons for spaying or neutering
reduces companion animal overpopulation
Belize, like many countries, has a surplus of companion animals without homes who are abandoned or euthanized. Compared to humans, cats are 45 times more prolific, and dogs are 15 times more prolific. One unspayed female and one unneutered male can produce over 800 animals in three years, which exceeds the number of foster homes, rescue organizations, and shelters available.
With spaying or neutering, there will be less animals living on the streets.
increases healthy life span up to 3 years or more
Spaying or neutering will extend the life of your cat or dog by 3-5 years. Besides preventing mammary gland tumors or cancer, it also prevents prostate cancer, perianal tumors, pyometria, and uterine, ovarian, and testicular cancers.
prevents becoming a public nuisance
Having fewer street animals roaming the streets, soiling parks, causing accidents, or being aggressive will benefit town and village communities.
