- SPAY / NEUTER NEWS
- TOGETHER WE CAN DO SO MUCH!
Many thanks go out to ALL OF THOSE THAT PARTICIPATED in the fundraising event that was held at the GREEN ROOM on June 15. Many people were involved in making it such a grand success, and our heartfelt thanks goes to each and every one of you who joined us that day. A BIG THANK YOU goes also to the band LOS CHUPACABRAS and to DJ MOUNIER, who kept us company for this special event.
The fundraiser was a big success, with over 100 people coming out to support this community event.
We were able to raise $2. 432.00 from both the sale of tickets and the raffle. This amount covered our outstanding bills with the University clinic in Heredia and the clinics in Jaco and to purchase the most necessary meds we need in our rescue and adoption program.
A special thanks also goes out to ALL THE SPONSORS OF THIS EVENT, (the list was published in Facebook and soon will be published on our website as well), to our friend and supporter TINA WALLACE, who did such a great job organizing this party, to RAQUEL and STAFF at GREEN ROOM for providing this wonderful place and offering great drinks and food and, of course, to all 100 of you who joined us at this event – THANKS!
ANOTHER SUCCESSFUL CLINIC FOR STRAYS AND PETS BELONGING TO LOW INCOME FAMILIES IN ESTERILLOS
34 companion animals were attended to by the very dedicated veterinary team: DRA. MELISSA ALVAREZ and DR. DANIEL CHAVARRIA, and their assistant ANTHONY VADO. Other major contributors to this very successful event were the organizers: JESSICA PECK and HAZEL MORA, both from Puriscal, as well as our volunteers: SHANNON PLAYFAIR, SILVINA GOREN and LEO HOGAN.
There were many other volunteers – our big THANK YOU goes to all of you who came to support us during this clinic. And a special thanks goes also to the sponsors of this campaign: JESSICA PECK, HOTEL PELICANO, DENIS LEON from PURA VIDA CHURCH, SHANNON PLAYFAIR and KAREN YOUNG from the restaurant LOS ALMENDROS, who donated to all of us (vets and volunteers) a delicious lunch.
Together with our “little spay days” at the 3 Jaco clinics: Plaza Boulevard, Dr. Wendy Villalobos and Dr. Yeimi Nuñez Herrera, we were able to spay / neuter 119 animals in the months June and July.
Thank you to DR. BERNABÉ BERROCAL, DRA. YEIMI NUÑEZ HERRERA and DRA. WENDY VILLALOBOS for performing the surgeries for us here in Jaco, and also a big thank you to all of you who sponsored all these surgeries, as without your financial help this would never be possible.
TOGETHER WE CAN DO SO MUCH!
– We can save animal lives.
– We can eliminate animal suffering.
– We can educate people who are ignorant to the responsibility of pet ownership.
– We can teach children to respect all kind of life and become better adults.
Please help us to save animal lives and make our county a better place to live.
Thank you for your time and support.
