Jaco Beach: Non Profit Animal Care, McKee Project Jaco
The McKee Project Jaco, located in Jaco Beach, Costa Rica, is a comprehensive, cost efficient, socially responsible and humane solution for street animals. Its goal is to relieve pain and suffering through a national spay and neuter program, while simultaneously creating responsible owners and responsive communities through education. The companion animals are kept in their communities. Latin American countries such as Costa Rica don't have the resources for shelters. And pets will not lead better lives if communities are not part of the solution. Community education on pet care is essential.
We successfully we're able to spay/neuter more than 1190 animals in December 2006. Both strays and pets from low income families we're treated in the Jaco Beach area. After they've been treated, we found new homes for over 290 dogs and cats. McKee Jaco also helps with other medical services, such as treatment of mange, ehrlichia, recuperation after accidents, and more.
Asociación Pro Bienestar Animal is a member of The McKee Project in Costa Rica. Our group (McKee Jaco) began back in June 2003, to help our community address the issue of the countless stray animals roaming the streets, as well as offer help with animal health care and adoption.
McKee Jaco is a non-profit organization which operates with no outside help of any kind. It survives thanks to the support of individuals who wish to help stray animals, and families who simply cannot afford to take proper care of their pets.
McKee’s mission in Costa Rica is "To End Pain and Suffering of All Companion Animals in Latin America". McKee Costa Rica accomplishes this by effectively eliminating the numbers of unwanted and abandoned animals through aggressive companion animal population control campaigns. Basic medical care through the McKee Associate Veterinary Network are: vaccines, nutrition support, and critical emergency care. Education and Participation of Communities: Making responsible and responsive communities — Education & Participation — Everyone has a role.
Replacing shelter “solutions”, by constructing better Companion Animal Homes: Building responsible owners & good homes through education in schools and McKee Community Centers. These components are done hand in hand, through in-place networks. The solutions are easy & cheap, and are delivered community by community, throughout the country. more
