A few good people can make a BIG difference in the life of some poor animals. This dog was pregnant and was tied to a post without food or water in the hopes that she would die.

Today we started spaying/neutering 120 cats here in Costa Rica. By providing transportation for these cats, we can safely spay/neuter them at our shelter. Not only are we providing a much needed service to their owners, we are also helping to control the pet population and offer these cats a greater chance at a better life. We are setting up a fundraiser to ask for donation to cover the costs associated with this big task. Please help if you can! Visit GoFundMe to donate to this campaign
We are continuing our efforts to help the animals affected by Hurricane Nate. Together, the AHPPA, DR. ALVAREZ, SENASA and HSI went into the hardest hit towns and suburbs. We treated 50 dogs/cats today with neutering, deworming, treating and closing wounds, defleaing along with the adminsitration of vitamin supplements and antibiotics in addition to general veterinary consults. They really needed our help and we were glad to be there for them.
This beautiful Labrador was rescued from a pig farm where he lived abandoned, sick and very sad. After being treated against Ehrlichiosis and getting the necessary blood transfusion, this wonderful animal will fully recover soon and have a second chance at a better life. A big “THANK YOU” to the rescuers and to the veterinarians at AHPPA for saving another life.
