|“CORY” RESCUED AND ADOPTED|
ADOPTIONS: Janice and Terry Parker, visiting from Victoria, B.C. intended to not only volunteer at a PEACEAnimals clinic, but to adopt one or two small dogs, preferably Chihuahuas. As our vet team, Pets for Life, is now in Oaxaca for two weeks, Janice and Terry spent a half-day volunteering at the Acopio. I was able to give them leads on two rescued male Chihuahuas, “Cory” and “Axel.” Dr. Tamayo had been caring for eight-month old Cory, and Laura Gelezunas had rescued and fostered Axel, an almost blind, ten-year old. I put the Parkers in touch with Patty Marchak of Mexpup. The Parkers will fly home on November 23rd with the two Chihuahuas plus two rescued Mexpups dogs. Stars in heaven for the Parkers.
