Poor boy in Solola.

This dog is a street dog that was spotted by a Mayan Families staff member. They brought him to the vet. It looks like someone has hit him with a machete. A common injury for animals unfortunately in Guatemala.
We had him treated with medications and had to release him back to the streets. There was a family nearby that liked him and we hope that he wil find a loving home.

So many great dogs and so few homes. It is one of the reasons that we continue our monthly spay and neuter clinics in the hopes that less dogs will have to suffer in the future.

Your donations to our animal project " Hope for the Animals" enables us to treat dogs like this one and so many more.

Three little kittens in Guatemala.

This is what I have been doing in my spare time! These three little kittens were thrown into a trash can when they were probably a day old. A kind woman found them in the trash can, wrapped them in fabric , put them in a box and brought them to us.

I had little hope that they would survive but now 2 weeks later they are all still alive and putting on weight.

Thanks to Caroline Tiffin for bringing baby kitten bottles and kitten formula to us from the U.S. has made a huge difference to them.

They are not out of the woods yet but they now have their eyes open, they purr as soon as I pick them up to feed them.

We have tried not to become attached to them but they are so sweet! We hope that we will be able to find good homes for them.

Anyone want to take a cat home with them ?
