Photo of the Week: Rescued South African Puppy

Photo of Week is a new feature that highlights the work IFAW does around the world everyday to rescue orphaned, injured, or mistreated animals. We hope this new weekly feature will give you a glimpse into this aspect of IFAW's daily operations.

CLAW's founder, Cora Bailey, recently visited IFAW headquarters in Yarmouth Port, Mass.

CLAW began ten years ago as a one-woman crusade to personally provide basic veterinary services to one South African township.  It now provides desperately needed veterinary services to dogs and cats, as well as vital animal care education to pet owners in some of the world's poorest communities.  Since its start in 1999, CLAW’s team of veterinarians and local volunteers have treated, vaccinated, and provided spay and neuter services to sterilize thousands of pets.
