Dpigs and cats can be our faithful companions, but without supervision and care, their populations can quickly spiral out of control. A single unspayed female and her puppies can produce 67,000 puppies in just six years, says Street Dog Hero, a Bend-based nonprofit, with a single unspayed female cat and her kittens capable of producing 420,000 kittens.

In addition to its work finding homes for dogs around the world, Street Dog Hero recently completed a free spaying and neutering clinic for some 415 cats and dogs in Chetumal, the state capital of Quintana Roo, on Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula. The two-day clinic allowed residents to bring in their pets for neutering, as well as serve street dogs and cats. The clinic also handled other animal needs, including flea and tick removal, nail trimming and wound care. Street Dog Hero plans to return to other communities in Mexico throughout 2022 to provide more free neutering, neutering and wellness services.
