Jaltemba Bay Animal Rescue (JBAR) just wrapped up another great Spay and Neuter Clinic, held April 10-13 at Sue and Del Moss’ Hacienda del Mar in Rincón de Guayabitos. A total of 226 animals were registered, with 208 being sterilized. The total number of adopted animals hit 10 (6 cats and 4 dogs), so many families and animals will be getting to know each other over the next days and weeks.

Dr. Malcolm Macartney of McKenzie Veterinary Services, and Dr. Carolyn Buxton and Dr. Carmen Carter of South Burnaby Veterinary Clinic also provided some great talent to help bring in these great numbers. We were able to perform more dental surgeries with the work of tech Karin (shown here) and our local dentist Dra. Adriana Flores. La Peñita’s local vet medicos Dr. Aldo Barba and Dr. Daniel Cuevas also took part as their busy schedules allowed. Backing up this talented team was the PEACE Mexico group and many JBAR volunteers.
Mark your calendars! As rumour has it, we are trying to book the Fall 2013 JBAR Spay and Neuter Clinic for November 13-16, 2013, again at the luxurious Hacienda del Mar.
