It was a great day............
At our usual brainstorming sessions, we came to believe that some of the less well off on our little island, may be too timid or were otherwise unable to bring their dogs to us, so we decided to take the Clinic 'On the Road'. Debbie made us a bunch of signs and we loaded up with medicine, vaccinations, heartworm meds, treats, collars, and all of our volunteers. It was a beatiful day, and we all got sunburned! Last thing we thought to remember was sunblock!
So - off we went to the Bahia area first, and met with lots of people, dogs, cats, and the local kids helped us work out where the owners were and with our unfluent spanish where we needed it! We gave the dogs vaccines, helped with information on caring for their animals, gave out worming and heartworm meds.
We nearly lost a few older carts in the mud! The lower ones such as those on the right, were not really that good at getting through the mulch and some careful driving and a little bit of pushing helped us through. Thankfully the other golf carts were a little higher with the larger wheels and could slosh through about everything.
After that we went to the neighbourhood to the west of Back Street. Here we managed to get around everyone and went back to the clinic to clean up and unload with only one Vaccine left, no wormer, one heartworm and no collars! A GREAT DAY!
It probably does not need saying, but the estimated cost of this to the CCHS was around $1000bz. On our rounds one lovely lady came to find us to donate $200 bz (Holly Philp) and we could not have been more grateful! The more the merrier please!
We were also able to get a list together of owners who would willingly let us Spay or Neuter their dogs. Another big thumbs up!
Many thanks to all our volunteers, Debbie, Jessie, Doris, Amanda, Sara, Val, Heather, Bobbi, Monique, Lennie, Hilda, Susan and Ashley, Becky and of course Dr Zeke.
