I had a really wonderful email last night from a woman named Ingrid. She and her husband volunteer with APAC – Varadero, an animal protection and welfare group in Matanzas, Cuba. They do sterilization clinics and education in Cuba, where the stray animal population is quite similar to Mexico. They partner with CANDi (one of the Cancun clinic organizers) and rescue groups in Canada. I was so touched that she took the time to write to me, and I wanted to share their efforts with you. You can check out their blog here, or their Facebook page here.
It’s pretty amazing how many people are out there doing great work, and I’m humbled that my images might play a part in bringing some of us together and creating awareness. People are realizing how far-reaching these problems are, they’re spreading the word, making donations and getting inspired to do what they can to help. If I ever get a chance to go to Cuba, you can bet I’ll be giving Ingrid a call.
Here’s a few more favorites from the Mexico trip, for your viewing enjoyment:
