A thank-you from Michele Gawenka and Helene WirtToday we held a spay/neuter clinic in Bajo Tejares, a very poor Nicaraguan barrio in San Ramon with our $500 SASY grant. Forty dogs and cats were spayed or neutered.Thank you for making this possible!!! Here is the blog with photos that we posted on our website and two Facebook pages (Community Action Alliance and Animal Welfare San Ramon).
Alajuelita was the location for a clinic organized by Teresita on July 27th. (33) people showed up with their pets for a low cost spay or neuter. Alajuelita is a highly populated area outside of SJO and many clinics are held here. The dog below is considered one of the stronger breeds and it’s very important that owners realize that castration will make them a better pet. There were several at this clinic in July. Many children showed up with their dogs and cats. They were very proud to be there.
Santa Rosa was the location for on May 4th for a spay and neuter clinic. The total amount of dogs and cats attended were 36.
In Barreal de Heredia on May 9th a total of 13 were castrated.
In Alajuelita on May 25th, 38 dogs and cats were spayed and neutered.
Just a quick note to send along the report from our clinic in La Palma on the peninsula. We castrated 21 animals in all.
We have a very motivated young lady named Janina in Puerto Jimenez helping with adoptions and abandoned animals. She came to the clinic to help and brought a volunteer as well. I think she will be instrumental in helping us plan clinics closer to Jimenez. She even has a FB page called Adopciones Peninsula de Osa.Our next clinic is scheduled for April 13 – at our house. We want to do one near us but there’s only about 10 animals so keeping it simple.
(24) dogs were spayed and neutered in Heredia on April 5th. This is another clinic hosted by Teresita. She also had a clinic in Tibas on April 11th and (26) dogs were attended to.
