TODOS SANTOS - Spay/Neuter Clinic


Please Help Keep Unwanted Dogs and Cats Off Our Streets
Source: Baja Western Onion

The annual Spay/Neuter Clinic will take place Nov. 17, 18, and 19 at La Canada del Diablo. Four vets from the U.S. along with several vet techs will join our local vets in a volunteer effort to reduce the overpopulation of dogs and cats in our neighborhoods. This service is provided at greatly reduced or free of charge to those in the local Mexican community who could not afford otherwise to have their animals neutered.

This is a reminder that this special, volunteer Clinic is NOT INTENDED for the general community who can and should pay for their own spay and neuter services, which most likely includes all of the readers of the Baja Western Onion. If you show up with your own pets intending to get free services meant for others less fortunate, you will be turned away. However, if you know of a truly needy Mexican household that cannot afford these sevices then please refer them to this event.

While the vets, both local and U.S. donate their services, there are still many expenses involved. The funds raised at the Fur Ball help offset these costs but there is never quite enough. If you have a shopping trip coming up and could help with a few purchases, the following items are essential:

paper towels
syringes 3 ml
alcohol
trash bags
rubber gloves
And let's not forget those hungry, thirsty vets and volunteers who so appreciate drinking water, sodas and snacks. Please mark the dates on your calendar!
