The South African Mass Animal Sterilisation Trust (SAMAST) establishment the first ever permanent "sterilisations only" animal clinic in South Africa.
Managing your pet's health
"Each time a community member has their cat or dog sterilised they are empowered because they now have a far more manageable task of care-giving. They no longer have to deal with the hopelessness of litter after litter of unwanted dead and dying kittens and puppies. I have seen how this (sterilisation) impacts very positively on the level of care their animals receive, and the fewer diseased and sick animals with mange and ringworm for example, the healthier the human population is too because they are less at risk in contracting scabies or being covered in ringworm," says Nel.
