Welcome to Planned Pethood International

“Making a world of difference in companion animal welfare.”

PPI truly needs your support to achieve its simple mission: “The reduction of companion animal overpopulation throughout the world.” At first glance a seemingly daunting task, but with a truly simple solution: Put effort into spay/neuter campaigns, train veterinarians to continue the work, and develop culturally relevant educational materials to help influence future societal concepts.  No one group is committed to these goals more than PPI, and with your tax deductible donation you can be a part of companion animal history.  The use of limited resources to warehouse a large number of animals is not a solution to companion animal overpopulation.  Only the reduction in population will elevate the status of these animals and ensure their safety and wellbeing.

PPI has provided training services to veterinarians from around the world. PPI, through Dr. Jeff Young, has made presentations and conducted sterilization campaigns in Slovakia, India, Panama, Hungary, Mexico, Poland, Turkey, and on numerous Native American Reservations in the US. Currently, PPI is active in hospitals located in Bratislava, Slovakia and Merida (Mexico). 100% of all contributions and fundraising money have gone directly to reducing companion animal overpopulation, training veterinarians in safe and efficient spay/neuter techniques, or helping abused & abandoned animals.

PPI Goals

  • Build a state of the art hospital in Asia emphasizing spay/neuter while working closely with local veterinarians & animal welfare groups.
  • Continue to work placing emphasis on resolving the problem of companion animal overpopulation through education, legislation, and spay/neuter programs, NOT BY WAREHOUSING ANIMALS.
  • Continue to invest the money from our active adoption program and donation to provide training & equipment for veterinarians who want the opportunity to advance the condition of companion animals around the world.
  • To reduce companion animal overpopulation throughout the world while elevating the status of our companion animal friends.
  • Continue to support our established hospitals in Bratislava, Slovakia, Merida, and our newest international training center in Puerto Morales in the state of Yucatan Mexico.
  • At PPI we have never charged any veterinarians in the program for the training that they receive at our hospitals and we always provide them with room and board during their training.
  • PPI also believes that in the 21st Century it is no longer enough to just Spay and Neuter.  We feel strongly that it is necessary to provide low-cost full service veterinary care to everyone, especially those who don't have the means to have a furry family member.

    This is a truly humane organization dedicated to animal welfare. I've done animal rescue for over 30 years and can't think of another group that does so much to spay and neuter to reduce animal suffering and abuse.

    I love it that the animals are taken care of by Dr. Jeff
