Gull Bay & White Sands, Ontario - Sept. 2016
On September 19th, The GAAP Canada (Dr. Lechten, Natalie, and Melissa) along with Dr.’s Hauer and Poon joined The Northern Spay Neuter Program for two spay/neuter and vaccine clinics. They flew into Thunder Bay and then drove 2.5 hours north to their first clinic in Gull Bay First Nation. The first day they visited a local elementary school and did a presentation about pet care for the local children. The next two days that followed kept the team busy spaying, neutering, and vaccinating the Indigenous community’s pets. From there, they packed up all their supplies and gear and travelled another hour north to Whitesand First Nation. They spent two long days there running another spay/neuter and vaccine clinic. They are proud to say that they saw 80 dogs in four days! They were also able to foster out one pregnant dog that had 10 puppies. Mom is doing well and will be returning home soon. The team made it back on Sunday September 25th and were back to work on Monday. Way to go team, you make us proud!
