It was a very successful fundraiser. We raised over 30,000 pesos! One of the sweet members retired as she has other committments with Valentines Day and Barebones. So that left the 3 of us. I managed to get one third of the funds released which I am donating to Pro Animal Melaque to spay and neuter La Manzanilla dogs. As explained by Karen Taylor at the fundraiser, they have a great relationship with the vets in Melaque and Barra de Navidad and get great discounts. They authorize each surgery, so there is a real transparency. Another committee member is most likely going to do this as well. Not sure what the third person who lives here year round has in mind. I am only here for a month and determined to accomplish the goal of using this 10,000 pesos for as many spay and neuters as possible. Pro Animal has the best discounts as a result of a long going relationship with the vets. So any of you who have supported, please do not give any more money. Tomorrow I am going to the school with Maestro Miguel to sign up dogs of the students. I will start the spaying on Friday taking 2 to Beto and the following week several more trips with a big day on Feb. 12 with 20 small animals. And those of you who so kindly offered to drive, please get in touch with me.
