A spay/ neuter clinic is scheduled to take place January 11- 14, 2017. It will be at the same location as last year, Calle 16 Septiembre #48 (former BBCC location).
Free spay/neuter surgeries will be done on those 4 days, and all animals are also examined and treated for parasites and other medical issues (as possible).
The clinic is being organized by a group of ex-pat residents including Rachel Meza of Bahia Fitness, Margo McKenzie, Sue Fornoff and Harold Sokolove.
Animals should be brought in by 8:30 in the morning and need to have had no food or water after midnight. Since the number of surgeries each day is limited, animals are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.
The actual veterinary team is Pets4Life, an organization specializing in conducting clinics.
Although the clinic is free to people bringing pets for neutering, of course there is a cost to have it in Bucerias! Donations are needed to help fund this and future clinics. Last year more than 150 surgeries were done over the 4 day clinic and organizers hope to be able to have that many again this year.
For more information about the clinic, making a donation or volunteering please contact Sue Fornoff at [email protected] or 322-151-1233 or Rachel Meza at Bahia Fitness in Bucerias.
