Sadly there are several dog (and cat) poisonings: at the arroyo and near the Crucero. Charcoal is a first defense and I will research further options. Talking to the hardware store about customers requesting rat poison is another route to go. If any one is interested in talking to them, please do so and express your concerns that it is not only being used for rats and it is against the law in Mexico to kill dogs!
This year there is a huge number of cats and I hope there will be an effort to take some in when Pro Animal Melaque has the state of Jalisco vets come in April. If I didn't have 4 dogs that need to go to Canada in a couple of weeks, I would be involved.
There are a couple of lovely medium sized dogs that need homes. A black one on the beach who I am taking in for spaying on Saturday. I noticed a medium sized pet carrier (for dogs up to 50#) at Walmart in Manzanillo yesterday for 1190 pesos. I will be going again soon and could bring it on the bus if anyone needs one!
