How we work
We have launched this project in Catamarca, Argentina and are working closely with the local government, the public sterilization center Zoonosis, local vets and protectionists to figure out a productive solution for the street dogs here.
Worldwide, we have our first partner in Portugal and we are looking to partner with groups and veterinarians who share our vision for a world where all dogs are loved.
Trap • Sterilize • Release
Our TSR program is in its infant stages. The current scope of this program is as follows:
- Identify in-need street dogs (fertile females and non-aggressive males).
- Feed the dogs and introduce ourselves to the owners to confirm that we can take the dogs for surgery.
- “Trap” the dog in question and bring him to a local veterinarian or clinic.
- The sterilization is completed and he is given up to a day to recover.
- Release the dog back into his neighborhood with a pamphlet and antibiotics for the owners, outlining basic post-op care.
A generous donation has allowed us to purchase a motorcycle trailer with 2 attached cages. This will ensure more efficient pick-up / drop-off.
A successful TSR program will result in:
- Slowing the growth of the street dog population.
- Less diseased, starving, and dying street dogs.
- Education for locals in poorer communities.
- Safer streets for humans and their domestic pets.
- Fewer animal-caused automobile accidents.
- Cleaner streets; street dogs currently tear apart garbage to survive on scraps.
For a TNR program to be effective, 70-90% of dogs must be sterilized in a specific area.
One unsterilized female and her offspring can produce 67,000 puppies in just 6 years.
There is a worldwide shortage of vets and funds to deal with the current problem.
Non-surgical alternatives are available and need to be used to help.
Our Mission is To enhance the quality of life for unloved dogs.
This project launched in May of 2017 and was approved by the IRS in July 2017. Our goal is to reach street dogs around the world and we are collecting data through our pilot program in Argentina.

Curious about non-surgical alternatives? So were we. We have been in contact with many groups and veterinarians and have exciting news to share.
Through our travels we have come across a remarkable network of sanctuaries and rescues around the world - find out more about them here.
