The Fiesta at Figaro's benefitting spaying and neutering of dogs and cats was a huge success! Muchas Gracias to Pino who offered his restaurant and Simone and Mike who played their fabulous music! I really appreciate all of you who came out in support of the goal of helping the animals. When I first got here in November, it was brought to my attention by Joanne K. that the dogs at Figaro's needed spaying, so she, Brenda & Dottie funded the first 3 dogs (Coco, Rosie and Zuma) to be spayed by Beto. Joanne T., Brenda, Pino and myself transported them. Contact with Pro Animal Melaque resulted in authorization of the next 4 dogs that we took to Beto. Lisa, Mayan, and Laura assisted in transporting them. The next step was forming a committee with the goal of fundraiser and spay as many more as possible in the month of February. Lauren, Jeanne and Lisa offered their assistance. Now that we've raised the funds the work begins and we have had great response from folks offering to drive to the vets in Barra and Melaque as well as surgical support. So now the work begins. Jeanne, I congratulate you on a job well done. You were an awesome emcee last evening! Thank you. You will see Jeanne volunteering her talents at the Valentine's Day event as well as the Bare Bones Theatre. Lauren, Lisa and I are will be working on the next phase and are moving forward on this. I'd like to thank the ticket takers: Paula, Isaura, and Valentin. Food organizers: Jo Anna H Set up: Neal and Sue Flowers by Lisa's daughter Photographer: Laura Bar Tenderesses: Josie and Patti. Thanks to Karen Taylor of Pro Animal Melaque for speaking of the goals of Pro Animal Melaque and Christine who has been my mentor these past few months. And words of aupport here in La Manzanilla from Julie, Pam and Marsha of Cisco's Amigos. Carell has offered to be our book keeper to keep all the money transparent I know there are many others and please let me know if I forgot you.
Now begins accomplishing the vision of an easier life for these La Manzanilla Lovedogs!
