HSTJ's April 15, 2012 Sterilization Clinic
On April 15, 2012, HSTJ joined forces with the Western University School of Medicine to sponsor a spay & neuter clinic in Playas de Tijuana.
A group of 20 volunteers from the Student Chapter Association of Shelter Veterinarians traveled down from Pomona, bringing with them donations and medical expertise. Several school professors, who were licensed veterinarians performed surgeries, and the wonderful students, who were eager to help HSTJ's mission to decrease animal over population in Tijuana, assisted in pre and post-op.
A special thank you goes out to Elaine Jordan for organizing this partnership. Our furry friends, who most have never been seen by a vet or vet tech in their lives, were in great hands with this team, getting fixed, nails trimmed, ears cleaned, given flea treatment and of course lots of love and kisses! A total of 48 animals were fixed this day, 12 cats and 36 dogs!
It truly was a pleasure to have such a wonderful team of individuals looking to make a difference for the street animals of TJ and knowing that these very individuals are our future veterinarians!
