EL TUITO.  Located in a tiny valley in a mountainous area, El Tuito  takes its name from the words “teotl” (“god”) and “tuil,” “tuitlán,” (“place of god or place of beauty”).  Driving south along highway 200, which is a partially serpentine,  two-lane road, one leaves sea level after Boca de Tomatán and heads inland.  Ascending into the foothills of the Sierra Madres,  the trees change from palms to pines, cedars and oaks.  After an hour of beauty, one arrives at this quiet and clean, cobbled town, whose outskirts are home to maize, sesame, sorghum and coffee crops and breeding livestock.  Very typically Mexican, the center of town consists of a central plaza and a tile-roofed bandstand.  At the foot of a grant María tree is a ceramic plaque certifying el Tuito as a “healthy community.”
The clinic took place in the patio of a private home two blocks from the square and in back of a colorfully painted mission-style church.  On Wednesday, our first day, Dona M. Carmen,  a woman in her seventies had pushed a wheelbarrow with her four dogs in gunnysacks three miles to the clinic. Because she lived in the high hills, volunteers drove Señora Carmen back to her home, where they saw more puppies.   After convincing her that she didn´t need more dogs, Kai Doyle and Vicky Mason returned the next day to drive the puppies down to the clinic and then back home in the afternoon.

El Tuito . Situado en un pequeño valle en una zona montañosa , El Tuito toma su nombre de las palabras ” teotl ” (” Dios”) y ” Tuil “, ” tuitlán , ” ( “lugar del dios o lugar de belleza ” ) . Conduciendo hacia el sur por la carretera 200 , que es un camino de dos carriles parcialmente serpentino, uno deja el nivel del mar después de Boca de Tomatán y se dirigeal oeste. Ascendiendo a las estribaciones de las Sierra Madre s, los árboles cambian de las palmeras a los pinos , cedros y robles. Después de una hora de belleza , se llega a esta tranquila y limpia la ciudad empedrada , cuya periferia tiene cultivados demaíz, ajonjolí, sorgo y cultivos café y la cría de ganado . Muy típicamente mexicano , el centro de la ciudad consiste en una plaza central y un quiósco de música.  Al lado del quiósco es un árbol María que tiene una placa de cerámica que certifique el Tuito como una “comunidad saludable”.

La clínica tuvo lugar en el patio de una casa particular a dos cuadras de la plaza y trasera de una iglesia de estilo misión pintada de colores felizes . El miércoles, el primer día , Dona M. Carmen,  una señora de unos setenta años,  había empujado a una carretilla con sus cuatro perros en bolsas tres millas hasta la clínica. Debido a que ella vivía en las altas colinas , unas voluntarias la llevaron de vuelta a su casa con sus perros, donde vieron a más cachorros . Después de convencer a la Sra. Carmen de que ella no necesitaba más perros , Kai Doyle y Vicky Mason regresaron al día siguiente para recoger a los cachorros a traerlos a la clínica y luego los regresaron a su casa en la tarde.
