|CLÍNICA EN EL TUITO|
Alas, I missed the clinic in el Tuito. Kai Doyle, chief organizer, sent me photos. Volunteers went to Barrio Pobre in an attempt to bring back cats and dogs to the clinic. At the first home they visited, there were ten aggressive dogs, none sterilized and most of them chained. The owner wasn´t willing to have any of them fixed, but agreed to let Kai take the gentle female, whose eleven puppies were nestled in the hollow of a tree.

Unfortunately this dog could not be spayed because she still had too much milk. The next-door neighbor agreed to have his two dogs sterilized, but the man with so many dogs is contributing to a serious overpopulation of unwanted pets. Back at the clinic, Paulina joined Don Luis in singinga sweet, old Mexican children´s song to his dogs as they were succumbing to the anesthesia.

ADOPTED: “Rocco” spent just a few days in a foster home in Edmonton before he was adopted by a loving family.

“Katie,” formerly called “Canela,” who was found on the street with Rocco, flew to Oregon with Troy Valens on March 30th. On the way from the airport to his home, a drunk driver ran into Troy´s and Ron Thomas´vehicle and totaled it.

As Canela was bounced around, Troy took her to the vet for x-rays. No broken bones, only bruises. Troy slept on the downstairs couch with Canela the first few nights because she was in too much pain to walk up the stairs. He reports that she is fitting in with all the other dogs beautifully.
|PURO GATO – ADOPTADO|
Shannon Beston, regular cat and kitten rescuer, primarily from the Isla Cuale, sent me a photo of one of the kittens I had found there and delivered to her offices. From there, the four beautiful male kittens went to Puro Gato, where the one in the photograph was adopted.

RESCUED AND NEEDS HOME: Ruth Hazlewood in Bucerias found a disoriented female Doberman mix in the middle of the highway walking in circles. Ruth took her to a vet for a check-up, where the dog was found to have very little eye sight left and a leg that was broken long ago. The dog runs very well on three legs, is disease free, and though she at least ten-years old, is described by Ruth as having “plenty of life left in her.” This is a very friendly dog and needs a home. Please contact Ruth if you can help: [email protected]
