The monthly mobile vet clinic conducted by Dr. Cruz and his staff took place on Monday, Feb. 22 (surgeries) and Tuesday, Feb. 23, 2016 (vaccines and consults). We thank Jim and Barbara Peterson for providing their residence as the venue for all the fury patients.
The February clinic saw 26 cats and 3 dogs neutered/sterilized. 24 animals were seen for consultation and vaccines. FCA sponsors the TNR (Trap Neuter Release) program for Culebra's feral cats. FCA also sponsors a Foster program for cats and dogs that are in need of finding permanent loving forever homes.
We cannot thank Dr. Cruz and his staff enough for coming over on the ferry every month to set up and conduct his much needed clinic. A big thank you to all, including the volunteers, for their tremendous efforts in providing hard work before, during, and after each monthly clinic. For lack of recent photos we include one from a previous clinic...Cruz Veterinary Services...doing wonders for Culebra and its animals :)
Please pop over to our "success stories" tab and read about Dewey, the Cat (rescued from Culebra Beach Villas) and Nariz, the Dog (rescued from Tamarindo Beach). It will warm your heart to know that they are living happily in their loving forever homes in the States. Thank you to our Friends of Culebra Animals community, to all who volunteer their time and talents and to all who donate money to make sad stories turn into success stories :)
We are in the process of updating info on our website/blog here. The "BLOG" tab is the one where our readers will find the blog posts about our monthly activities.

Cruz Veterinary Services -- June 2015
Friends of Culebra Animals sponsored its 4th straight month of veterinary clinics with Dr. Cruz, Rosarita, Dr. Sammy and Alvaris. We had a great turnout again. Over 50 animals were tended to during the 2-day clinic, including emergency cases.
There is a great deal of preparation for the mobile vet clinic that comes from Fajardo, PR, and for Friends of Culebra Animals. Dr. Cruz works the night shift in a San Juan Animal Emergency Clinic. Following his shift, he prepares his mobile unit for several hours for Culebra. Cruz Veterinary Services puts in 2 intense days here, working almost non-stop to cater to our animals.
There are many people who you may never see working behind the scenes to make these monthly vet clinics happen. Our pets and feral animals are indebted to their dedication. Every time. At every clinic.
Here are photo captures of Dr. Cruz Mobile Vet Clinic from 2015. We are so fortunate to have Dr. Cruz and his team coming over to Culebra every month to hold the clinics. FCA sponsors part of the clinics...including our TNR (trap-neuter-release) program. Many volunteers also help to make it happen. And of course our Culebrense community needs a special mention for taking the time to attend the clinics with their pets in order to give them a healthy and happy life. Thank you to all :)
Thank you for spending some time with Friends of Culebra Animals, formerly known as Animal Welfare of Culebra. Whether you are a resident, tourist, or someone simply interested in helping animals and the organizations behind animal welfare, we look forward to your support and ideas.
