Lillie is a homeless dog who lives in the village of San Pedro, which is situated on the opposite shores from Panajachel on Lake Atitlan.   Like so many roaming street animals in our region, Lillie has human friends who watch over and care about her.   She is only about six of seven months old and has never had a litter.

By way of a friend in La Antigua, we recently came to learn about this dog.  Her neighborhood friends in San Pedro had reported that Lillie was in heat and in the company of unkind feral males.    People who care about this homeless animal wanted to do something for her,  so Ayuda was called to see if we could help.

Arrangements to sterilize Lillie were made possible through a kind sponsor.  Lillie was brought to Panajachel on a water taxi by her friend Victoria and received the standard Ayuda treatments.  She then spent a quiet night indoors at Zoo Mascota, and the next day returned to her home base of the San Pedro community where her caring friends awaited her.   Lillie now has a fair chance at a healthier, longer, and less stressful life on the streets.

Brian Howe is a fellow avid animal lover.   And once upon a time, Brian was the lead singer of the legendary rock & roll band Bad Company.  Thanks to the Internet, Brian found Ayuda!

On a recent holiday trip to Lake Atitlan, Brian contacted us to say he was on his way and would like to help.  Once here, he presented Ayuda with a very much needed infusion of medications and supplies. These in-kind donations, which originated from Dr. Lynn, a vet in the US, will greatly help in our daily attendance of sick and needy street animals.

On behalf of many homeless and roaming dogs and cats:  Thank you Brian and Dr. Lynn!  It was a pleasure to meet you and we look forward to future opportunities to work together.

Rock On!
