Bassett hound.

Yesterday, we rescued a 4 yr old male Bassett Hound that had been in a cage that was too small for him to turn around. He had been in this cage for more than 2 months.
He was in a pet store in Chimalatenango. His cage had two other wire cages above him full of dogs . All the urine and feces came down on top of him.

Unfortunately, we had to purchase this dog to get him out of such a horrible situation. Not something that we like to do but several people were able to put in money to rescue him and we found him a good home to go to.

We have had an animal activist group go to the pet store, they took photos and they are now hoping that they will be able to take some legal action against the pet store.

We are also picking up three kittens from this store, nobody wants them and we at least will be able to spay and neuter them before we find homes for them.

Our next spay and neuter clinic will be held on the last Saturday of this month, August 29th.
We hope to be able to spay and neuter at least 35 dogs and cats. Please help us with even the smallest donation, it will make a great difference to be able to keep this program running.

It is the only action we can take to help relieve the suffering of the animals here. This and education but education will take some time. We are working on that. Every week we are holding Humane Education classes in the schools. But we need to be able to take immediate action to help the enormous suffering of the animals here. Spaying and neutering is an immediate solution to reduce the overpopulation of animals.
