  5. 2006 SAYULITA SPAY & NEUTER CLINIC MARCH 15, 16, 17 &18 - 2006 Dear Friends and Animal Lovers, We are pleased to announce that the annual Spay & Neuter Clinic will be held again this year in Sayulita! We are presented with another opportunity to truly make a difference in our lives and the lives of others. Each year, since it began in 1999, the Sayulita Spay & Neuter Clinic has succeeded in directly benefiting our entire community. Thanks to Dr. Dawn Mehan, Dr. Robert Pierce & our local Vet Dr. Jose Guadalupe Gonzalez for all their help in previous clinics. Also, thanks to everyone who has contributed to help make the clinics a success. We greatly appreciate your generosity of time, resources, and finances. More than 365 dogs and cats have been sterilized to date, and with your continued support we anticipate that this year with 2 doctors 4 days, our goal is to get to 520 animals. Whether you are a compassionate animal lover or not, the Spay & Neuter clinics are a practical endeavor in promoting the overall health of our growing community. Three essential reasons why the sterilization of local street animals is valuable to our entire community: 1. Diminishing the population of “street” dogs and cats, who present problems of sanitation and disease, is a proactive effort in maintaining and promoting public health. 2. Limiting the population of stray animals reduces unnecessary predators of wildlife, including local birds and already diminishing iguana species. 3. Reducing the population of unwanted stray animals prevents the cruel treatment of animals, which may otherwise be killed after birth in inhumane ways such as through suffocation and/or drowning or abandonment in the wild. Unwanted animals who are not killed often become ill and must survive by eating rotten or contaminated food by scavenging through garbage, frequently resulting in disease. Currently we are hosting the next clinic for four consecutive days, March 15, 16,17, and 18, 2006 with the support of La Fundación Antonio Haghenbeck y de la Lama, A.C. The Antonio Haghenbeck y de la Lama Association from Mexico City, is providing the veterinarians and will help us to reduce the clinic’s operating costs. The operating cost for a veterinarian to treat each animal in Puerto Vallarta goes from $500 to $900 pesos. With the help of this association will be only $130 pesos/per animal. Additional expenses are posed by supplies and materials. At this time we ask that everyone recognize the overall benefit of The Spay & Neuter Clinic, and donate whatever resources of money, volunteer time, and supplies that they can. Attached is more information on ways to be of service. Thank you very much. Sincerely, Upi Viteri The Sayulita Spay & Neuter Clinic upiviteri@prodigy.net.mx Volunteer Information These are 3 primary areas where help is needed.
