This website is designed to provide an in-depth look into FOMAW’s animal welfare projects and describe how you can help.
The FOMAW News page provides links to our FOMAW newsletters. Subscribers receive the latest news about our animal welfare activities in their email inbox.
Visit Our Clinic, the page for information about the Alianza Animal Manzanillo (Alianza) sterilization clinic that FOMAW operates in Manzanillo, Colima, Mexico. Alianza is a subsidiary of FOMAW and a registered Mexican Civil Association.
The Vet Training page describes FOMAW’s educational collaboration with International Veterinary Consultants (IVC) to provide surgical training and continuing education for Mexican veterinarians. The courses help vets in the field solidify their medical skills and bring like-minded veterinarians together to share their experiences working in spay/neuter clinics with the goal to establish a professional veterinary network throughout Mexico.
Visit the Outreach page to learn how FOMAW promotes animal welfare via our street animal outreach organization, Animal Angels of Manzanillo, which provides free sterilizations and treatment for common medical conditions such as mange and Transmissible Venereal Tumors (TVT) for animals without caretakers.
The Other Projects page explains how FOMAW donors help support the work of other Mexican groups. Many grassroots animal welfare projects survive solely through private donations. If requested, FOMAW can distribute donated funds to projects that support nature preserves, sterilization clinics, rescue programs and shelters.
Visit our Donate page to learn how you can help by donating to FOMAW. Your U.S. tax-deductible donations help support Alianza Animal Manzanillo‘s spay/neuter clinic, FOMAW‘s follow-on vet training, animal outreach and much more. FOMAW also provides other Mexican organizations access to funding otherwise unavailable to them. It’s you, our donors, who are our lifeblood and who keep the animal welfare programs that we all believe in alive and well.
