Veterinarios Internacionales Dedicados a Animales Sanos
International Veterinarians Dedicated to Animal Health
ViDAS is a non-profit organization that assembles teams of veterinarians, veterinary technicians, veterinary students, and animal–loving volunteers to travel internationally and provide free spay and neuter services for dogs and cats. Our mission is to provide these services in areas of need as a means of combating pet overpopulation. We strive to work together with the local community to provide education to people and aid to local veterinary groups to spark positive and sustainable change.
Our Current Missions
The Spayathon for Puerto Rico
The Spayathon for Puerto Rico is a coalition of 26 organizations that have been brought together by the Humane Society of the United States to champion an island-wide spay and neuter campaign in Puerto Rico. As a collective group, we were able to safely spay and neuter over 30,000 dogs and cats through four free, high-quality,high-volume spay and neuter clinics held between June 2018 and May 2019. Now, we are continuing our efforts in Puerto Rico through the summer of 2021 and hope to help even more animals!
Round 1 – June 3-9, 2018 (5,294 animals safely spayed/neutered and vaccinated)
Round 2 – November 3-9, 2018 (7,722 animals safely spayed/neutered and vaccinated)
Round 3 – February 3-9, 2019 (8,428 animals safely spayed/neutered and vaccinated)
Round 4 – May 3-9, 2019 (8,644 animals safely spayed/neutered and vaccinated)
Round 5 – November 2-7, 2019 (7,194 animals safely spayed/neutered and vaccinated)
Round 6 – February 21-26, 2020 (8,298 animals safely spayed/neutered and vaccinated)
**Our May 2020 clinic was unfortunately canceled due to health concerns related to COVID-19**
We will continue to update our website as further decisions are made about upcoming Spayathon for Puerto Rico clinics.
