Raulerson Trust Donates $55k to GAIN Spay/Neuter Clinic to Honor Late UOG Professor
(YIGO, GU) – Guam Animals In Need (GAIN) announces that the Lynn Raulerson Trust is donating $55,000 to support its animal shelter and new Spay/Neuter Clinic. In honor of her memory, beginning Friday the clinic will be named the “Dr. Lynn Raulerson Spay/Neuter Clinic at GAIN.”
The late Dr. Lynn Raulerson was a Professor of Biology at the University of Guam (UOG) and a huge supporter of GAIN and the island’s animals. Well known for her dedication to UOG as a Professor of Biology for over 40 years, she was also responsible for the identification and documentation of much of Guam’s flora as well as the creation of the UOG Herbarium.
As a Biologist, she had a strong love for flora and fauna including the island’s dogs and cats. Dr. Raulerson had always been a big supporter for GAIN and, even in her absence, continues to provide the only animal shelter on island with much needed resources to continue functioning and providing services to the island community and its pets.
On Friday, June 9, GAIN dedicated its Spay and Neuter Clinic to Dr. Lynn Raulerson. “Dr. Raulerson loved animals, and her legacy continues to improve the lives of Guam’s animals,” says GAIN Board of Directors President, Cyrus Luhr. He continued, “Thanks to her generosity and vision, we’re now able to expand our spay/neuter services island-wide.”
If you are interested in having your pet spayed or neutered, please contact the Raulerson Spay/Neuter Clinic at GAIN at 653-6717 to schedule an appointment or to get more information.

“We’re proud of the work done by our skilled veterinarians and staff, as well as the many medical professionals from both on base and off who volunteer their time with us,” said Alison Hadley, Executive Director of GAIN.
