SUNSET ON THE MALECÓN  –  PUESTA DEL SOL

EL MALECÓN EN PUERTO VALLARTA

There are so many people and places and animals and things that need saving. There are many times when I wish I were somewhere else, trying to help save something else more important than cats and dogs.   They are not in danger of becoming extinct.  Quite the opposite.  They keep being born to suffer.  But I am here in this astonishingly beautiful place and see the misery of the animals on the street and want the suffering to eventually end.  Thank you to those individuals and groups that are committed to making things better for all things everywhere.  Small actions matter.

CALLE 8 DE MAYO – COAPINOLE

I took a 25-minute taxi ride to Coapinole on Saturday, as our car was still in the shop.  We drove north through the very lively municipality of Pitillal and then east towards the foothills.  As we passed a small green lake in the middle of a grassy area, the driver said that it was very mysterious how the level of the water never rose or fell.  There are apparently no crocodiles in the lake, but it is completely fenced in with no access to it.  Three dusty blocks east of the little lake in an empty concrete house is where the clinic took place.

OTRA VISTA DE LA CALLE 8 DE MAYO – COAPINOLE

When I arrived shortly before nine,  the clinic was already at capacity, as Saturday is half-day.  Cats and dogs were already registered and in kennels.  Although some pet owners had arrived as early as seven,  there was still a small group of people waiting with pets, hoping the vets would take more.   A quiet, slender teen-age boy with a baseball cap on

RESCATADA Y ESTERILIZADA – COAPINOLE

backwards brought in three eight-week old puppies that he had found in the street.  He had taken them for their first shots and said they had all been spoken for.  The boy told me that he had recently rescued a total of twelve kittens and had taken them to be fixed and then found homes for all of them.  An attractive plump woman in levi shorts and a turquoise t-shirt brought in a neighbor´s male brindle dog with a rope tied around his neck.  The owner of the dog had found it stuck to a female dog and had forcefully pulled him off, causing injuries to the male dog.  That forceful action may have injured the female dog, but no one brought her in.   A pretty, dark-haired young woman was waiting with a large cardboard box holding a mama cat and three kittens.  The cats weren´t hers, but she had wanted to help a friend.  Five extra animals over the Saturday limit were accepted, in part because there was a volunteer vet helping –  the young Jesús Isidro Pacheco Ponce.  The mama cat was spayed, but unfortunately her kittens and a few other cats and dogs had to be turned away.  We will return to this colonia soon.

CLÍNICA MUY LLENA EN COAPINOLE

STERILIZATIONS IN COLONIA COAPINOLE – May 20-23

Male dogs- 23; Female dogs – 45; Male cats – 31; Female cats – 43

TOTAL:  142 cats and dogs – an astonishing number accomplished by a extremely remarkable vet team.

This clinic was paid for in part by the generous grant of $5,000 USD by the Marchig Animal Welfare Trust, which is headquartered in Scotland.  At a cost of $1,800 USD per clinic week, the Marchig Animal Welfare Trust sponsored two past clinics:
San Vicente, Nayarit – April 29-May 2 =124 animals sterilized; Loma Bonita – May 6- 9 = 124 animals.  With a $1,400 balance remaining, 78% of a third clinic is paid for = approximately 110 cats and dogs sterilized.  TOTAL NUMBER OF ANIMALS STERILIZED THANKS TO THE MARCHIG ANIMAL WELFARE TRUST= 330.  
All pet registration forms with signatures of owners or rescuers are submitted by Dr. Poli to the local department of health, with copies to PEACEAnimals.

CATS AND KITTENS:  Shannon Beston reports that she and Adriana have seen 14 kittens dropped on the isla Cuale in the last 10 days that they have been able to collect. And there are always adult cats taken there, pets that someone no longer is able to keep or wants to keep. Some cats on the island are pregnant.   Wildlife suffers.  Soraya and Almendra of Puro Gato have a total of 35 abandoned kittens they´re fostering and need to find homes for.  I don´t know the numbers of all the other cats in other feline rescue organizations – AngeliCAT; Paraiso Felino; PurrProject – but it is in the hundreds, with thousands more living on the streets of Puerto Vallarta.
