Did you know there are just as many, if not more, older cats and dogs in shelter, as there are younger pets? One reason, a lot of people are more drawn to the cuteness of puppies, kittens, and adolescent-aged pets. They are charmed by all those puppy kisses and the over-abundance of personality and energy. Not always, but often, that never-ending energy tires us out quicker than we thought it would. And those cute little puppy antics? They are quickly overshadowed by the reality that those little fur balls are peeing and pooping machines. In truth, there are many other positive reasons to consider adopting a pet five years and older.
The Samana Project is a veterinary outreach program that started over 20 years ago, on the Samana peninsula of Dominican Republic. This year, Dr. Françoise Tyler, Dr. Carrie McColgan, and Treasure Dreher from The Village Vets Lilburn/Stn Mtn will be joining Team Samana. They will perform and assist with the spaying and neutering of dogs and cats, as well as provide equine medicine to horses and donkeys.
Dr. McColgan provides more information on the project and her own personal experience with it . . .
