Please book your pets in as early as possible by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Let us know how many animals with brief descriptions and tell us what services you need. The vets will be spaying, neutering, giving vaccinations, offering small surgical procedures like cherry eye or lump removals, treatment of ear and eye infections as well as skin treatments and flea/tick treatments. If you are planning to take your animals off island, chips can be done as well. If you haven’t booked your pet in, we suggest you arrive early!
Services are provided for a donation (except for chips). The more donations, the more care we can provide and keep the momentum going and have more clinics.
Want to volunteer? If you love animals, and you want to help please let us know! We will need help checking in animals, after care, assistance with translation, transportation and other services. Please contact us if you would like to help.

Who is MIOAW?
MIOAW (Marshall Islands Organization for Animal Welfare) is an NGO, located in Majuro, Marshall Islands. We are here to help prevent cruelty and inhumane treatment of animals, and to help educate the citizens of the RMI on the benefits of routine animal care, and the importance of spaying and neutering dogs and cats. As a non-profit animal welfare organization we rely on the generosity of our members to continue our vital work for animals in distress. Please stand with us in our struggle to end the suffering of dogs and cats on Majuro.
Currently, there is no veterinarian in the Marshall Islands; MIOAW’s first priority is to establish veterinarian clinics three times a year, with a long-term goal for a full-time veterinary practice to be established on Majuro. With your help, we will fight to make this island a better place by being a voice for those who cannot speak.
On behalf of our furry friends,
MIOAW and Kommol tata,
