(At I.S. clinics trained volunteers administer deworming medication, flea/tick medicine, clean eyes/ears, clip nails if needed, and tend to minor cuts. Special cases are screened and referred to our HSTJ Vet clinic for free treatment. This is done to prepare the animals for surgery in the coming week. All of this is free, and dog/cat food is distributed when we have sufficient donations.)
We now wish extend a very special and heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone over at AMC Vet on Telegrapgh Canyon Rd. because without their generous donation of supplies this Itchy-Scratchy clinic would definitely not have been possible. Their response to our plea came at the most opportune time. Please know that your help touched the lives of all those animals, plus many more to come. THANK YOU!!!
During the entire PANAMERICANO project, Cristina and 5 other new volunteers learned the ropes. We are very happy to welcome these six people as new active HSTJ volunteers:
Cristina Marin, Lupita Diggs, Jairo Tovar Atreaga, Noe Martinez, and Alvaro & Imelda Marin.
Dr. Gayle Roberts, Dr. Dulce Velazquez, Dr. Mike Constantine, Dr. Herlendi López Morales, Dr. Jose Manuel Gomez, and Dr. Ernesto Quevedo.
The remaining animals will be sterilized at a follow-up event, and those with means of transportation were referred to the HSTJ Center for free immediate sterilization. (At locations such as this, we set up a mobile clinic in an adequate location, such as a community center or a school. All medical supplies, materials and equipment are transported to and from clinic sites by local Mexican HSTJ volunteers.)
