In a video on one of the pages of the Society for Preovention of Cruelty to Animals International (SPCAI), Pierre Barnoti, President of the organizations, explains the missions if his beloved Society and what they have done for the animals across the world.
As the name says, this organization works to help animals all over the world. There first goal is to fund shelters in various countries and organize spaying and neutering initiatives. Currently, they are also helping animals in Iraq through their Operation Baghdad Pups by saving pets and sending them to protection in the United States. So far, they have helped 348 dogs, 97 cats and one donkey. Costs include emergency veterinary care, transportation within Iraq, shelter during their stay, airfare for the animal and the transporter, crate and food.
As for the shelters, the SPCAI supported 184 of them around the world since its founding in 2006. These shelters house animals while waiting to find them proper homes and offer services such as veterinary care and spaying and neutering.
There is also an initiative to spay and neuter animals that either live on the streets or come from families that cannot afford to pay for the operation. Spay Panama was the largest mission until now, performing the surgery on 1137 pets and stray animals. This service is important to help reduce the number of unwanted pets and keep from having more born right on the streets.
