As an active member of the Spanky Project, a Not for Profit Organization, Dr Belovich is involved in the organizing of humanitarian veterinary projects in Cuba.

Cuba and Canada have a growing friendship and nowhere is that more evident than the historical visit to Havana by three Ontario Veterinarians. November 29th to December 6th 2010 marked the first Cuban Canadian Veterinary Cooperation Week. With special Cooperation Visas in hand Drs. Michele Travers, Linda Pallett and Michael Belovich along with organizer Terry Shewcuk of the Spanky Project (spankyproject.blogspot.com) flew to Havana from Pearson Airport on Air Cubana, stumbling into the Plaza Hotel at 4 am Sunday November 29th after having becoming rather too well acquainted with customs officials at the José Martín International Airport!
