HSTJ's January 2010 Itchy Scratchy Clinics

This past weekend, January 30th and the 31st, HSTJ performed back to back Itchy Scratchy Clinics in the Colonias of Nueva Aurora and Salvatierra. A total of 277 animals were treated this weekend for fleas, ticks, worms and mange.

On Saturday the 30th, the clinic was held at Nueva Aurora treating 94 animals, 86 dogs and 8 cats.

And on Sunday the 31st at Salvatierra, 186 animals were treated,  180 dogs and 6 cats.

A HUGE thank you goes out to volunteers, Enrique, Maria, Jesus, and Clemente who helped make this enourmous clinic possible!

Itchy Scratchy Clinics are open to the public. HSTJ provides free parasite treatment, and asks for a donation form those that are able to make one. At these clinics, the public is also educated about humane treatment, proper nutrition and the importance of sterilization. Each individual is encouraged to return with their animal to our next sterilization clinic.

HSTJ's January 24, 2010 Sterilization Clinic in Colonia Los Pinos

On Sunday, January 24, 2010, we visited the home of Adela, an elementary school teacher in the Colonia Los Pinos. Adela lives modestly and uses all of her resources to rescue animals in her area. She has a network of fosters who care for many of the animals to find them homes in Tijuana.

HSTJ performed a clinic at Adela's home spaying and neutering 26 of her animals, 20 dogs and 6 cats. As part of HSTJ's mission, we assist people who resuce animals, in addition to the sterilization clinic, we were able to leave hundreds of pounds of food for Adela and her network of volunteers, food that was genersouly donated by a distributor in Carlsbad and a vendor in Ohio. Thank you so much for your generosity!
