As we lead up to the Spanky Project’s 10th Anniversary in December we have had a flurry of activity filled with joy, disappointment and anticipation.

On the disappointment level, a late October trip to Havana has been cancelled. We did not receive all the necessary permissions in a timely manner.

Visas were in place as was the permission to enter with “donations”.

Donations being all our supplies which for this trip were valued at over $7000.00. The supplies were to be used in our four planned sterilization campañas. Also some of these supplies were to be pre-positioned for our December TNR for Cats.

This is a follow up to our highly successful TNR in October of 2012.
The missing permission needed from the 
Institute of Veterinary Medicine 
was tied up in their bureaucracy. 

We simply could not wait any longer.

In addition to the campañas we were also slated to hold a presentation ceremony at the Veterinary Faculty of the University of Havana for the two anaesthesia machines which were delivered in September.

So, our focus now turns to December.

Leading up to the December TNR we will keep you informed of our plans and related stories.

Make sure you don’t miss any of the action.
Follow us on Twitter.

There will be some great stories about our Cuban partners. 
One being Dra.Rocio . 
She, as a result of our 2012 TNR, has become known as the go to Vet in Havana for all things feline.

We are in need of your support to continue our work.
