After a week in Guantanamo Bay, our team is excited to report that Project KTMO was a great success! Our nonprofit coalition, composed of Operation Git-Meow and Army Veterinary resources, worked tirelessly to enhance animal conditions and prevent the spread of animal-borne illnesses such as rabies. And we could not have asked for a better turnout. We provided essential veterinary care to 179 animals during the free, five-day clinic! But this project wasn’t just about treating animals; the team also took the time to educate kids from 6th to 12th grade on the importance of safe handling of animals, spaying and neutering, and responsible pet ownership. We were also able to share with them everything our military support programs have to offer and how it could help them and their beloved pets.
We are so thankful to everyone involved in this project and are thrilled to be able to support the health and safety of this tight-knit military community.
