Isla Animals: Sixty Puppies Adopted in 3 Months
We are back up to twenty one puppies, even after sending out over sixty in the last three months. But of course, it’s wonderful news because if we keep the puppies from hitting the street and keep spaying and neutering the adults we’ll catch up with the overpopulation of cats and dogs in Mexico sooner than later.
This past weekend Dr. Pepe Vegas came to the house and spayed fourteen female pups and neutered four male pups, all in my laundry room. It was a mini clinic. He also did a tooth extraction and gave the first treatment for heartworm to Cecilia. I adopted Cecilia out to a local family around four years ago and then found her in the street last week, poor thing was bone skinny. She tested positive to both ehrlichia (a tic born disease) and heartworm. I’m sure she will fatten up when we get these things under control and she’s glad to be home.
We also had another small victory last week. There is a large white lab that guards the airport tower on the island and she has been popping out puppies for years. Last week the men that work there finally agreed to have her spayed. Yahoo. And we got her last four puppies, they are incredibly, grit your teeth, adorable.
