July Spay and Neuter Clinic.

Rosa , a long time volunteer with Mayan Families holds a little puppy that she found the previous night. We were able to arrange to have the puppy fostered and hope that she will be able to find a home. She was so thin and scared.
  This little puppy felt much better after getting some food and affection.
  Many children brought their pets to be spayed and neutered .
This is one of the 10 dogs that we brought down from San Andres.

We held our monthly free and low cost Spay and Neuter clinic on Saturday 25th. The clinics are free to everyone who cannot afford to pay and we ask whatever donation people can afford to pay. We receive very few donations and we need to subsidize these operations by donations, usually from the U.S. or Canada.
We had four doctors and three students come to help from San Juan University. Also there was a visiting veterinarian from Spain who helped out and a representative from the McKee foundation, Edgar. He is very anxious to try and get more spay and neuter clinics happening and he was pleased to see how ours was so well responded to by the general public.

If anyone has visited Guatemala and has a heart for animals, they will have been appalled and horrified by how dogs and cats have to suffer. We are trying the best way we know how to relieve this suffering, we spay and neuter as many dogs and cats we can to help reduce the unwanted population of animals. We also run feeding stations in the street to feed unwanted and homeless dogs.

We beg you, if you have a heart for animals, please consider donating $20 US to be able to cover the spay or neuter of one dog or cat.
