Education statistics

We have been to 33 schools in the nearby villages where we have given talks to 8464 children during the year .We have been impressed this year as 311 teachers have attended the talks as well which means they will hopefully continue to give talks themselves on animal care and wellbeing.

We have had many foreign volunteers visit us during the year some have been vets and vet nurses and others have simply come to help us at the center doing various jobs such as dog walking, cleaning cat cages, general maintenance on cages and clinic, watering and weeding the garden, helping to build fences and glass bottle walls as dividing areas for the animals.

We have also had volunteers who have painted murals and helped with work on the computer and connecting us to other websites that are useful for us to be in contact with such as Workaway and Helpx.

We are now aiming at doing bed and breakfast as well in order to become sustainable and to be able to keep the shelter going.

2010

To date this year we have attended to and sterilized a total of 856 small animals done to date of Dec 15thth 2010. Again we thank Fondation Brigitte Bardot for their support for the spay and neuter programme this year. Dr Ingrid has also given talks on animal wellbeing at both universities in Piura which were attended by 80 vet students as well as 7 professors. The talks have opened up a new avenue for inquisitive minds which we feel will be to the animals advantage for the future.

Mayhew International Animal Home from London sent us a vet and vet nurse to train our vets and student here. It was a very successful visit as we managed to teach both students and their teachers at both the universities. We were also able to have a couple of the students here in our clinic at the same time for training We look forward to having further interchange with Training vets from The Mayhew animal Home for 2011.

EDUCATION
Our education programme runs throughout the year and our teacher Betzabe visits the schoolteachers and children on a regular basis throughout the year.
- 55 Schools were reached.
- 350 Teachers reached.
- 10281 Children reached.

Visits from volunteers included a visit from Dr Richard Lerner from USA who came to us earlier this year to do a study on Erlichia a nasty tick borne disease that affects many of our animals here in northern Peru. Together with Dr Jierson Mendoza and Dr Ingrid Tinedo we helped him in his research work to gather more information in order to be able to help the many animals here with Erlichia. We hope that he is able to come back again and do more profound studies on this illness in order that more dogs can have more quality of life.

We have had the opportunity to have 36 foreign volunteer vets vet students and vet nurses here during the course of the year all of whom have been of great help, often bringing us much needed donated supplies which all helps to keep the cost down or perhaps supplies that we cannot get here.

We have also attended to 954 horses, 79 donkeys and 27 mules, various cows, pigs, and other livestock this year. Most were routine care (we provide de-worming and tetanus vaccination), but we performed several castrations, treated saddle sores, and educated owners on preventing them in the future, and cared for any other problems presented to us with thanks from donation from The Donkey Sanctuary Sidmouth and The Brooke.

Aside from our organized campaigns, our shelter has also developed a reputation over the years and we average 5-10 walk-ups per week. Most are requests for de-wormers or flea treatments, but we also tend to accidental poisoned dogs, illness, hit-by-cars, and other emergencies. We also have far less animals "dumped" on us this year which we take as there being far less animals being born due to our sterilization campaigns.

We would like to thank all volunteers who have given us their time and come so far to help us achieve our goals. Some have been really special and whom I can still contact by email for advice when needed and they find the time to mail back.You are really special - Thanks again to all.


2009

29 foreign volunteer vets, techs and student have visited us this year to participate in both our spay and neuter of small animal clinics as well as our equine work.

Worldwide Vet Services website advertising brought us two groups of volunteers. We have our names down with Vets without borders in Canada, BVA in UK as well as Worldwide vet services in UK.

We now have accommodation for about 12 volunteers we worked with the university with a spay and neuter day at the university incorporating Dr. Jierson and his students as well as our volunteer team. We hope to have more days like this.

We have had many outreach clinics in neighboring town of Paita where there are so many needy animals.

A total of 1010 Small animals were spayed and neutered during 2009 in our clinic as well as in rustic mobile clinics in the nearby rural villages.

We thank Fondation Brigitte Bardot for supporting our spay and neuter programme for the year as we would not have been able to reach that many animals without their support.

We have also attended to 383 horses, 108 donkeys and mules, and 26 cows, pigs, and other livestock this year. Most were routine care (we provide de-worming and tetanus vaccination), but we performed several castrations, treated saddle sores, and educated owners on preventing them in the future, and cared for any other problems presented to us with thanks from donation from The Donkey Sanctuary and Spana.

Last but certainly not least with the aid of WSPA “Respeto Toda forma de Vida” being placed in school curriculum we have given talks on animal wellbeing continuously throughout the year to 7711 children in school classrooms and 275 teachers from 40 different schools in our area.


2008

17 foreign volunteers came to work with us during the year including a group who came through WVS advertising. Dr Ingrid found her surgery feet with the aid of Dr Stacey White from Toronto as teacher and Gillian Scotts assistance from the Mayhew International London. Since then she has not looked back and manages to spay and neuter an average of 7 to 13 on spay days Her techniques have improved as well as the size of her incisions. Many who come are pleasantly surprised to see how good her surgeries are. Dr Stacey’s teachings and help have been invaluable to Dr Ingrid.
