Sep 30, 2009

As this month of September winds down we celebrate a milestone of accomplishment.

We are declaring the Las Cavernas area to be in a state of stabilization.

Tux at 7 weeks  28-Sep-09

Tux at 7 weeks 28-Sep-09

All females in the area have either been sterilized or are secure and scheduled for very close dates.

All homeless males in the area have been sterilized, and others have been adopted and are scheduled for very close dates.

All dogs of both sexes in the area have been vaccinated for Rabies, Parvo, Distemper, and other local deadly diseases.

Toffee at 7 weeks  28-Sep-09

Toffee at 7 weeks 28-Sep-09


And all homeless puppies have been adopted, except for Tux and Toffee.   All ready for a healthy life with human companions, we hope to find homes for these adorable little boys very soon.  Until then, they are waiting in a volunteer’s foster home.

Las Cavernas will continue to be a daily Ayuda feeding station, including support from the local merchants and workers.  New arrivals to the area will be surveyed and planned for necessary treatments according to their needs and conditions.

Visibility: Everyone
