Bandit wandered into the bus stop bookstore coffee shop this week. The regular customers quickly realized that this puppy was all alone and looking for sanctuary so they called Ayuda.
With a mangey face, and perhaps his very first day away from his mother, Bandit was carried through the closest neighborhoods where residents were asked if they knew this puppy. Although he had been seen by the neighbors, no one knew where this little chow had originated. The popular suspicion is that he was probably dropped off from a passing bus.
The neighbors were made aware that Ayuda was taking him to Zoo Mascota for treatments, and that he would then go to a temporary foster home while he recovers.
Bandit is about 9 or 10 weeks old and we think we may have already found a nice family of humans for him. But first he will complete his mange treatments, become sterilized, and receive our standard series of vaccinations.
Despite our daily efforts to control the dog population, we still have a continuous supply of puppy adoption opportunities. Please Contact Us if you are interested in helping to find homes for homeless animals. Our supplies of basic medications for Bandit and others like him continue to become painfully reduced. In order to rebuild our inventory of supplies we desperately require cash and/or in-kind donations. We ask for support from local residents, visitors, and people like you who care about the plight of helpless animals.
