OUR WORK IN THE SALT RIVER PIMA-MARICOPA INDIAN COMMUNITY (SRPMIC)
Since the Nagi Foundation began it’s work in the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community in October 2015 we have made a positive impact on over 400 people.
From October 2015 to July 2016 we have done over 10 animal health clinics. During this time the Nagi Foundation has positively impacted the lives of over 400 animals and over 500 people who live in the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community and our work is just getting started.
During our clinics we not only spay/ neuter and vaccinate dogs, cats and rabbits but we also perform other life saving surgeries and treat a variety of medical illnesses. Our goal is to not only reduce the population but raise the overall health and awareness of the animals in the community. We see our programs part of a comprehensive long term programs to improve the health of the animals and prevent the spread of vectors to the people.
Grooming and dog training services are also available at each of our clinics in keeping with our mission to encourage and make responsible animal care easily accessible.

WHY OUR WORK MATTERS
One other key component of our medical treatment program involves epidemiology, data collection and animal population tracking. The collection of this data is vital as it will shape the future of our medical treatment initiative by assisting us in determining the scope and frequency of treatment needed in the community. As we know, the disease and health of the animal populations can tremendously affect human populations. Our research and data collection will help determine the risk factors for disease impacting community members and assist the community in determining targets for preventative healthcare
