Animals are periodically collected from the streets by dog catchers known as Zoonosis. The animals are not fed for 5 days. If no one comes for them, they are given food laced with poison. It is a hard life and a painful death for so many dogs and cats.
Sterilization is the best long-term solution to reducing the number of homeless animals.
TAP Animal Project seeks to eliminate the suffering of Cuban animals through mass sterilization campaigns, public education, and the promotion of animal health care.
Annually, ~5,000 animals are sterilized--preventing about 25,000 new unwanted animals each year. Currently, TAP supplies ANIPLANT, and ANIPLANT provides on-the-scene assistance to Cuban animals.
TAP Animal Project is committed to expanding spay-neuter programs in Cuba. Please join us to help the dogs/cats of Cuba.
Note our name changed!

If you've been to Cuba, you know the helpless heartache of seeing painfully thin and sick dogs and cats on the streets. And while Cuba is a highly educated, healthy and empathetic population, their lack of resources is a tremendous problem. People simply may not have the means to properly care for their pets. Veterinarians often do not have the medicines or supplies they need to treat animals.
As a result, many dogs and cats are not spayed/ neutered and unwanted animals roam the streets in search of food, shelter and kindness.
