Animal suffering is a problem around the world. Just $20 U.S. will go a long way towards improving one dog's quality of life in Chile, and also help make sure that future generations of dogs are wanted and cared for.

In south-central Chile, the majority of dogs are uncontained, unsterilized, and unvaccinated against common canine diseases. With each litter born on the streets, canine overpopulation worsens, leading to malnutrition, untreated injuries, and the spread of diseases, including rabies. Many dog bite victims are small children, bitten on or near the face, and occasionally these attacks are fatal.

All of these problems stem from a common cause: Allowing dogs to live and die on the streets. It's a problem that can only addressed through a two-pronged strategy of community education and providing care to the dogs who are suffering needlessly.

Veterinarians without Borders has been working in Valdivia, Chile for over a year. Their comprehensive program includes organizing community workshops, conducting household surveys, data analysis, initiating vaccination and spay/neuter campaigns and developing an education outreach program for school-aged children. No other similar services for street animals exist in the area.

You can help Veterinarians without Borders in its vital work. This Gift That Gives More™ vaccinates and spays/neuters a street dog in Valdivia, Chile.


Veterinarians without Borders is a charity guided by the philosophy that the health and wellbeing of animals, people and the environment are inextricably linked. Its programs develop on-the-ground strategies to promote and maintain public and animal health around the world.
