WHAT WE DO
Of course there are parts of the world where people are fortunate enough to have easy access to veterinary care. Sadly there are also many groups of people to whom such a privilege is completely alien. All over the globe there are animals in need of help and professional care. Green Paw Project goes where veterinary care is needed most and set up a temporary, free veterinary clinic for all local wild and domestic animals. In fact we aim to set up various clinics and visit each project site once or twice a year, with the objective of setting up permanent clinics. Additionally, we also offer free veterinary care to established animal shelters, conservation organisations, and local veterinary surgeries.
The problem of stray animals is worsening all over the world. Quite often these animals are unloved or unwanted and left to fend for themselves in an unnatural environment. There are a number of serious issues posed by stray animals. One simple solution is to introduce spaying/neutering programmes with awareness campaigns within local communities. In time this service will decrease the number of stray animals and, in turn, also help to minimise the suffering that is so commonplace for strays.
Spaying/neutering prevents the inevitable suffering that these animals will go through; it also ensures they’ll pose less of a threat to endangered species, whilst reducing the likelihood of transmissible diseases like rabies and leptospirosis. The problem with strays is not the animals themselves; it’s how resource-deprived local communities react to the problem. In the case of developing countries it is often the case that the local populace doesn’t have the means to tackle the issue. Rather than culling the animals we can intervene and lay the groundwork for gradual and positive change. Spaying/neutering programmes are just one of the ways we help to lessen the suffering that disowned animals would otherwise endure
Green Paw Project is ready and willing to handle any domestic or wild animal emergencies. In the event of an emergency the animal will swiftly be rescued, taken to our clinic and then cared for by a team of skilled vets and volunteers.
Community project, awareness and education
One of our priorities is to connect directly with the local population and convey a strong message of animal welfare and environmental care. Granted this is no small feat and yet we aim to achieve it through local stalls, talks, music, and also inviting the locals to join in with the projects.
Our Future Goals
In the coming decade Green Paw Project will be setting up an animal welfare rescue shelter and education centre in the North West of the UK. We will also be expanding into other sectors, such as the pet and animal trade, battery farming industry, agriculture and effects, and long-term animal rehabilitation programs.
