On Sunday April 24, Amigos de Animales spayed or neutered 175 animals, 85 dogs and 89 cats – a first to have more cats than dogs. We had four vets working.
It seemed like a slow day because our vets took time to care for some animals in distress. Among some of the problems presented, a dog who had gotten too close to a porcupine and had to be sedated while the quills were pulled from the inside of his mouth…who knew we even had porcupines here?! No matter how busy or how many animals are lined up, the vets never rush and always take the time to care for animals in need.
We had some wonderful new volunteers that we hope will continue to work with us in future clinics. I am always amazed at the caring and thoughtful people who come and give of themselves one day a month and often, many more days. We are fortunate and blessed to have people who are willing to step in and step up and work for the animals and people of this community.
As always, we thank all those who bring food to the clinics and many thanks to Jane Hampton who keeps the kitchen up and running so well.
Amigos de Animales sends its deepest condolences to Barbara Rabkin and the family of Mort Rabkin. Mort had always been a great supporter of Animales’ efforts in the community and he will be greatly missed by all.
The next clinic will be Sunday May 29. For an appointment, contact Magaly at 6563-8686 or firstname.lastname@example.org
