FRIENDS OF HSTJ AUGUST 2017 SPAY AND NEUTER CAMPAIGNS

Friends of HSTJ along with Foundation Pet Friends of Tijuana conducted a spay & neuter clinic on August 20, 2017.  It was an enormous success!




A total of 228 animals were registered and admitted. Friends of HSTJ was responsible for 134 surgeries, 59 female cats, 24 male cats, 34 female dogs and 17 male dogs.






The clinic started early A.M. and ended early evening. It was well attended.  The message about the needed spay & neuter is reaching the public in Tijuana thanks to public education which is one of the seven programs of Friends of Humane Society de Tijuana

Elizabeth Bajaras, titular/charge person (far right), proudly announces that 224 animals have been registered and the majority came from one of the poorest areas, Zona Norte, where the population was targeted for this clinic.


ROÑAS

This is Roñas.  She is 7 years old and rescued from the streets by Isabel in Colonia Morelos. She is pictured here with her rescuer, Isabel.  Her life is much better now.




KOBU

This is Kobu. He was abandoned at a school, along with 4 other kittens a while back in Villa del Real.  He is pictured with his rescuer, Graciela.  She has been doing rescues for 30 years.  
She also brought 2 other animals to the clinic.






CUKY & RATON

Cuky (the light beige cutie) was rescued by Adriana and became a family pet. Raton, a romeo, was a street dog coming around to be with Cuky. Adriana rescued him too. They were brought to the clinic together.




ANGELICA

Meet Angelica. She is a rescuer with 20 animals at her home shelter.  She brought in 8 dogs and 2 cats, her latest rescues, to this spay & neuter clinic. Angelica is dedicated and will continue to get support.





MOLLY

This is Molly. She is 4 years old.
She was adopted by Karla when her former owner had to leave the area & couldn't care for her.
She was fortunate to have Carla come to her rescue because many dogs like Molly are left in public areas or on the streets to fend for themselves.



BULLY



This is Bully. She had 3 previous litters of 10-12 pups!  The owner regrets that she had to wait this long for to have her spayed. She expressed her gratitude so that Bully could have a better life.




We also sponsored a

AUGUST ADOPTIONS

YOUR DONATIONS AT WORK

As you can see from the photos below, these animals were being kept in horrendous conditions! 

The neighbor took action, took one of the dogs who was pregnant and called the authorities who removed all of the animals accept 2 that were fixed, so no more puppies.
Two of our rescuers, Patty & Juan, took in 4 dogs and the 3 puppies (that were then 3 days old).  The neighbors also ended up giving them several dogs that belonged to their family members.
We are pleased to announce that all of these animals have now been adopted, including the two little doxy's  (puppies of the pregnant mother mentioned above). They were adopted at Petco by a wonderful family, and as you can see, they are now happy beach-goers!
We also want to introduce you to some of our rescuers.  
These wonderful people work hard to help animals such as these pictured Doxy's, nurturing and caring for them until they're ready for their forever home. 
So hats off to Vicky, Rebecca, Juan, Consuelo, Patty & Nilsa!

SEPTEMBER'S ANIMAL OF THE MONTH

YOUR DONATIONS AT WORK

COQUETA & CHICHARO
Karen Sanchez is a rescuer that has depended on FHSTJ support for many years and she always attends the FHSTJ supported Tijuana Animal Project events so she can prepare her rescues for adoption. Karen's animals were treated for parasites and skin conditions and arrangements were made to give a FHSTJ spay and neuter certificate to attend to the animals in a timely manner instead of having to wait for the next spay and neuter mobile clinic


 COQUETA is a chihuahua mix. She and her puppy CHICHARO (sweet pea) were found abandoned in an alley. When first approached, COQUETA was defensive and crawled into a hiding place with CHICHARO.  Fortunately, Karen is a rescuer with a lot of experience and she gained the trust of COQUETA which is not easy because we are talking about a street Chihuahua.   Karen took the risk because she knew they would not survive without care and protection. After a bath and several days of delicious meals COQUETA and CHICHARO adjusted well and remain very content.  Now Karen and her family have become attached to them and instead of putting them up for adoption, Karen has decided to keep them.
