Spay and Neuter: Amigos de Los Animales de Todos Santos (AATS)

In any animal welfare organization, spay and neuter is always the
primary focus – and it is no different with AATS. The fewer unwanted
and feral cats and dogs in the area, the smaller the problem these
animals will pose both to themselves and the local residents. Spay
and neuter provides the best means to control the animal population
for the greater good.

Since 1997, our spay and neuter clinics, held throughout the year, plus
our other sterilization efforts have accounted for well in excess of 7000
spays or neuters. This fact has led to a marked decrease in the overall
animal population in the Todos Santos and Pescadero areas, resulting
in happier, healthier and better cared for animals. However, the effort
is continuous, seemingly endless, and we are always looking for folks
to volunteer at our clinics.

Volunteers for short-term fostering are desperately needed to perhaps
bottle feed a dumped baby (or litter), for post-op care and for someone
awaiting adoption.

Humble Beginings
Our first clinic back in the early 90’s.
There was a good deal of "make do"
going on, but we managed to spay
and neuter over 250 animals in five
days. Not bad, considering what we
know now that we didn’t know then!
Recent Clinics
We now have multiple clinics per year.
Shown is one of our guest Vets from
the States. Where else do you get
to operate with a straw hat on? Only
in the Baja.
The New Stuff
Over the years, we have received
donations of medical equipment like
stainless operating tables and better
surgical tools. Here is a local Vet
putting these donations to good
use. Thank You, Donor!
With so much going on that these
events, we always need volunteers,
be they Vets, Vet Techs, folks to help
with the animals or people to set up
or tear down. Send us a message via
our contact page for more info.
Sleepy Puppy
And of course the reason that we do
what we do. Our continued spay and
neuter efforts, both at the clinics and
through additional efforts, have led
to greatly reduced feral cat and dog
populations in greater Todos Santos.
