So after taking care of 28 dogs since 5:50 this morning I was finally sitting down to enjoy some quiet time… full moon… cool breezes… doors to beach open when Floofers started SCREAMING and running around like she was dying! Poor puppy had a crab attached to her lip. Apparently it’s a thing here to dig up the yard and torment crabs. Since this happened last month with Piru I know the easiest way to get them to let go is to run them under warm water. After 10 short minutes of waterboarding a very angry puppy the crab is back in the sand. I have no doubt that Floofers did not learn a lesson from this.
Until last month he was struggling to survive on the street. People walked past him every day. They ignored the ribs showing through his skin. They ignored his sad face desperate for a hand to help. Fortunately a new friend of mine noticed him. She took him in but her stay here wasn’t permanent and she couldn’t keep him. There was no way we were letting him go back to he street. Welcome to your new beginning baby boy 😊
A few weeks ago our rescue friends in Chetumal found this girl on the street surrounded by male dogs. They scooped her up, had her spayed and fostered her for as long as hey could. Dominica seems to have been born with a birth defect that has her skin wrapped around her legs in such a way that she can extend them to stand 😥 We will get her to our vet specialist this week to see how we can help her live a better life. She is a kiss monster and beyond happy to be off the street. We love her already.
In the town of Bacalar there are homeless dogs. Everywhere. Literally everywhere. It’s truly shocking how many dogs are in the street. My new friend Gustavo Ramos has been doing spay/neuter campaigns there for many years and also takes in a ton of street dogs and cats. Last month I got to tour his place and meet all his animals. There are about 12 dogs and cats, cats, cats! They are happy, fed & loved. It’s beautiful. They are the lucky ones. The unlucky ones are truly some of the saddest dogs I have ever seen. This weekend we are sponsoring our 3rd campaign with Gustavo and have committed to paying for 25 more animals. That’s 75 street dogs/cats in 3 months! The reason we are able to help is because of YOU our supporters. You make the dream possible. Thank you ❤️
