Ana & Brent of Cat Impi have been at sea for 8 years now and have sailed more than halfway around the world.

Those who follow Cat Impi will know of their involvement with animal welfare and care solutions in New Caledonia, the project having been started as a result of their followers on You Tube funding the medical costs to help 'Moose', the abandoned island dog.


“Operation Dog" is a program to help control the dog population on the islands in a humane manner”.

Of all the places Brent & Ana have visited in their travels they say that the islands of New Caledonia are the jewel in the crown of the best islands to be found anywhere in the world and we support their sentiments.

Sadly however these islands are not always paradise for the dogs and cats who cal them home.

"Operation Dog" is about providing the funding needed to provide medical assistance for these animals.

OPERATION DOG: We sail to the LOYALTY ISLAND called Ouvea where our followers have helped sponsor the DOG STERILIZATION PROGRAM. Guy Kane, the flying vet has loaded all his gear onto our beloved catamaran called IMPI and we become a mobile home, storage facility and restaurant for this amazing vet.

Operation Dog" is a program to help control the dog population in a humane manner.
