RÍO CUALE

The skies are often cloudy and grey, but it doesn´t rain.

Water temperatures in the bay are in the low 80´s, matching the air temperature, and the río Cuale running slowly down from the foothills of the Sierra Madres is warmer than it was in winter .  Children splash in the river and ride their bicycles along the new, serpentine sidewalk

on the south side.   Locals set up white plastic tables and chairs for outside dining.  

BREEZY BUCERIAS

To cool off, we drive forty minutes north to breezy Bucerias for lunch at Karen´s Place. It is an early summer.

20 MINUTES FURTHER NORTH OF BUCERIAS –  NUTS AND CANDIES FOR SALE IN LA CRUZ

Pets for Life, the vet team PEACEAnimals contracts with, held a clinic this past week in Peñita/Guayabitos in the state of Nayarit.    Normally there would not be a blog written if there is not a PEACEAnimals clinic, but as I receive daily requests for help, am making space now for some of these animals as well as the appropriate organizations to contact. There are many kind, loving and generous individuals helping with rescues and many organizations that try to help and often are able to.  With all the sad stories we hear and see, it is always a thrill and surprise to know that there have been so many rescues and adoptions.

The rescue groups have FB pages, and these are the best locations to advertise lost/found/rescued/for adoption/wanted for adoption/financial help for sick or injured cats and dogs, etc. These groups are listed on our website under the “resource” tab. The focus of PEACEAnimals and this blog is to promote the need for spay/neuter.  

Below is a list of the groups – there may be more that I don´t know about.

Vicky Boyd – lunches for vet staff of three at San Vicente clinic on April 30th.  Vicky will also be one of the volunteers that day.

ADOPTIONS: “Rayitas,” who had been at the Centro de Acopio (pound) for almost two years.


“COYUL”  DE LA ISLA CUALEADOPTADO

“Coyul”, a kitten rescued from the Isla Cuale that had been fostered at Puro Gato. She was adopted at the Acopio´s adoption day at the former city hall location on Saturday.  There were no other adoptions there that day.

RESCUED AND NEED HOMES:  Mónica Díaz emailed with a request for help for four dogs.  They have all been cared for by Dr. Manel Peña and are all sterilized, treated for fleas, ticks and parasites and received their six-fold vaccines.  All these dogs were abandoned by their owners.  Descriptions below supplied by Mónica:

Rummy – Female Mexican-mix – initially shy, but energetic and gets along with other dogs.

“LULU” BUSCA HOGAR

Lulu – Boxer-mix being boarded at Tibet Canino.  Gets along with other dogs.

“MIMI” BUSCA HOGAR
Mimi – 100% Boxer.  Very quiet and sweet and gets along with other dogs.

“RUMMY” Y “PANCHITO” PARA ADOPCIÓN
“PANCHITO” AT TIME OF RESCUE

Panchito – A gentle Lab-mix who requires hip surgery.  He is being boarded at Tibet Canino while waiting for the 4,500 pesos to be raised for his operation at Dr. Peña´s clinic.  If you can help, please take donations there and earmark them for Panchito.

If interested in meeting any of the above dogs, or for more information,  please contact Mónica:  tabaqueriadelhotel @yahoo.com.mx
A beautiful green-eyed, glossy black cat with white paws, white chest and a white stripe down his nose.  Abandoned near our home, he was neutered at the Colina clinic on Saturday and taken afterwards to Soroya of Puro Gato at the Acopio adoptions.  He is young and extremely affectionate.  Please contact Puro Gato via FB.

HERMOSOS Y CARIÑOSO GATO BUSCA HOGAR

I heard loud cries one day last week coming from the abandoned house near us of kittens that were no longer tiny.  There is no way for kittens to jump up to the window and out to the street.  The two tame and sterilized adult cats that I feed there twice a day can do that.  The mama cat can do that.  The owner of the house lives in Guadalajara and there is no way to get into the house.  Sadly, the kittens have probably starved to death by now.

SORAYA OF PURO GATO

Dogs at the Centro de Acopio are only walked twice a week by volunteers organized by Friends of Puerto Vallarta Animals. 
Food is always needed. The government contributes two weeks of food annually.
FOSTER HOMES ARE NEEDED FOR CATS AND DOGS.  PLEASE CONTACT THE ANIMAL RESCUE ORGANIZATIONS ON OUR WEBSITE IF YOU CAN HELP.

FRIENDS OF PV ANIMALS AT THE CENTRO DE ACOPIO- PUPPIES, KITTENS, CATS AND DOGS NEED HOMES

SOS!!!  NEED RESCUING:  From Greg Barsalu:  “There are currently 17 pups of ages between 6 and 8 weeks there, far too many for us to deal with.  We are doing our best going up daily to help clean, vaccinate and feed them.   But as you know, there is never enough labour or money!   The medical care is being funded out of our personal funds,  not the Friends or the Acopio.   Three of the pups are currently in my condo getting ready to travel to Canada at the end of next week.   If we can get the others out of the Acopio into foster until they are ready to be spade/neutered, then at least they have a chance.  I would imagine this to be one to two months at the most.”

IMPROVEMENTS AT THE CENTRO DE ACOPIO (POUND)

The puppies are all vaccinated and healthy.  If you can help, please contact Deb and Greg Barsalu: gbarsalou @shaw.ca

Nicole Beaupre emailed to say that when she went to the dump today, Sunday,  to feed the homeless dogs, there were four males and two females.  One of the females is injured, unable to walk and ready to give birth.  Can someone help?  Contact:  [email protected]
