The severe overpopulation problem of unwanted dogs and cats in this world is unimaginable. The Serengeti team knew that more had to be done, and we wanted to start from the source of the issue. By spaying, neutering, and vaccinating both owned and homeless animals, we would be nipping the problem in the bud. In just six years, it has been estimated that one unspayed female dog, her mate, and their offspring could produce around 67,000 unwanted puppies. The number is almost doubled for a female cat.

In rural areas with limited resources, hundreds of thousands of puppies and kittens are born into a world unfit to care for them. Most end up passing away from the elements, predators, and diseases. By vaccinating the animals already brought into this world, we will be able to get ahead of those diseases that are causing the suffering of so many. With all of this knowledge, we decided to create this project.

Now, every month, a Veterinary team skilled specifically in efficient, high volume spay and neuter heads out to some of the most rural, in need areas of the country to provide completely free Veterinary services. The Parker Project’s mobile surgical unit will be the life saving machine that is so needed for so many. In the years to come, we only hope to increase the amount of work we are able to do. There is so much work to be done, and we couldn’t do it without the continuous support from donors, volunteers, and collaborators. Let’s do great things!

    Could you tell me what areas the Parker Project covers?

      Hi Suzanne, The Parker Project is focused primarily (right now) in the Four Corners Region of the USA, though we do assist with global spay & neuter projects. In time, we hope to head north to assist with Canada’s First Nations communities and other regions without Veterinary support.

MY QUESTION IS, CAN YOU HELP ME TO RECEIVED THOSE BEAUTIFUL CATS? THANK YOU VERY MUCH

      Hi George, Thank you for reaching out and helping those seven cats. Unfortunately, we would have no way to know where they ended up, but we do hope they are safe and happy. Spaying & neutering is the best thing we can do to help keep the numbers down. Hopefully, there won’t be any more homeless litters in that area. Thank you for trying!
