Over 85 humans and 45 dogs enjoyed the great Mexi-Can Vet Project Dog Reunion in Victoria, BC on Sunday, September 8, 2013. This has turned into an annual event organized by Dr. Malcolm Macartney’s crew from McKenzie Veterinary Service.
(above) JBAR volunteers Deb Tomlinson and Sarah Walker greet Max the Dog, whom they rescued and personally nourished back to health last season. Harley the Great Dane, was the next in line to say hello to his loving rescuers.
This event was a chance to see some of the Jaltemba Bay Animal Rescue (JBAR) Spay & Neuter Clinic grads with their new families. This year, they decided to charge $5 CDN per person at the door. Sandee Legh, McKenzie Veterinary Services’s Pet Nutritionist, not only offered her backyard for the function, but she also put together a Silent Auction featuring over 30 items donated by local businesses and restaurants. It was a great success with over $2,000 CDN raised toward JBAR’s next Spay & Neuter Clinic scheduled for November 13-16 in Rincón de Guayabitos.

The sun provided great weather and a good time was had by all. Thanks to Malcolm and his team for organizing this event!
