Partners and Sponsors
We partner with local vets; Dr. Jorge, Dr. Salvador, and Dr. Carla who provide medical care and have been involved with Surfers for Strays' Spay and Neuter Campaigns.
Sociedad Protectora de Animales Zihuatanejo (SPAZ)
SPAZ is the local humane society. They are our mentors and they spay and neuter the dogs at the Rescue Center between campaigns. Surfers for Strays provides sterilization surgeries free of cost for the locals in Troncones who take their dogs and cats to SPAZ.
Dr. Sheddy - Vet Tails
Vet Tails was established aboard the sail boat SV Chuffed, with a mission to improve animal welfare and health. Dr. Sheddy needed a break from boat work and found Surfers for Strays, a dream volunteer position located near her dream wave! Since then Dr. Sheddy, along with sailing veterinary technician Michelle, have helped Surfers for Strays improve their medical programs, host spay and neuter campaigns, and treat animals in the Troncones Region. Check out the blog Dr. Sheddy wrote about her work at the Rescue Center. Dr. Sheddy also produced three videos about her time in Troncones at the Rescue Center and her work helping during a local spay and neuter campaign. Check them out below!
