Palau Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) held its first mobile spay and neuter clinic for 2022 held in Aimeliik January 24th-28th. This was also the first outreach clinic in Palau conducted by Dr. Pamela Hernandez, who recently joined the PAWS staff as veterinarian. The clinic was a great success offering spay and neuter services and general animal health services to many dogs and cats.

The clinic was possible as a result of partnership between PAWS, Koror State Animal Shelter, and PalauPetsPlus. PAWS thanks Governor EyosRudimch and Koror State veterinarian Dr. Sayaka Suzuki for their support and Dave Smith of PalauPetsPluswho organized the clinic and provided the venue. Funding for these deeply discounted spay and neuter surgeries was provided by the Australian Embassy, Direct Aid Program.

PAWS promotes sterilization of dogs and cats, both males and females, which helps control the overpopulation crisis which results in otherwise healthy animalsbeing unnecessarily euthanized each year.  Sterilization also helps protect Palau’s unique biodiversity and promotes human health via improved animal health.Animals that are spayed (female) and neutered (male), will live a longer, healthier life – no complications from pregnancy and males won’t roam!

Throughout the month of February, PAWS is offering a Valentine’s special “Love your PetS” at our clinic in Topside (behind PIDC store and next to Remax). During the special spay and neuter services will be available for only $5 per pet. Call 775-PAWS (7297) for an appointment.

PAWS wants to organize more mobile clinics bringing spay and neuter services close to people and their pets. Pleases call us to plan a clinic in your state or hamlet.
