Sterilisation & Identification Campaign for Pets: Save Lives, Sterilise!

We are happy to announce to the animal lovers of Lanzarote that the Animal Shelter Sara is launching a Sterilisation and Identification Campaign together with the local authorities to offer these at... half price!!! Yes, you read it right: 50% discount!!!


Sara has been meeting over a period of time with the island’s local authorities to negotiate subsidies for residents and their efforts are coming to light in the shape of the "Save Lifes, Sterilise!" Campaign.

There is a limited number of subsidies available and they will be granted on a strict first come fist served basis, so if you had been thinking of sterilising your pet but didn't have the funds to do it, don't miss your chance.

Currently there are only 3 participating municipalities: Arrecife, Haría and San Bartolomé .

But do not despair if you don't live in any of these, as other town halls have showed interest in adhering to this campaign too. We will  read more »
