Every year, Dr. Kupkee and Lynn volunteer their time at a spay/neuter clinic in rural Costa Rica. The clinic represents the joint efforts of local educators, volunteers, and both local and foreign veterinary professionals. This community project has helped to greatly reduce the street dog population, as well as provide spays and neuters for pets owned by low income families.
If you would like to help, contributions of money, medications, and surgical supplies are always needed. Expired products are welcome. Please contact us for more information and enjoy the photographs!

It turned out I had spayed a dog belonging to one of the employees at our favorite restaurant. Our dinner ended with this sweet surprise!
