Spay/Neuter clinics are the number one priority and the only solution to control over population of dogs and cats. We see a huge improvement in the amount of new babies in the city, thanks to the City of Puerto Peñasco. Monthly clinics are held in various parts of the city, and several times a year larger clinics are held where several hundred surgeries are performed.
MARK YOUR CALENDAR – MAY 28TH AND MAY 29TH will be the dates for our next free clinic to be held at the Shrimp Park at Blvd. Fremont and the main boulevard, Blvd. BenitoJuarez. Call the city at (011-52-638) 388-5152 for more information. To date we have seven Mexican veterinarians scheduled to volunteer their services. If you are an American or Canadian veterinarian and would like to volunteer either for one day or both please call Nancy at (011-52-638) 383-1012. We would love your participation.
Many local residents do not have transportation to get their pets to these events. Please, if you have neighbor dogs that need surgery, pick them up and bring them to the clinic.
A big thank you to our Mayor Alejandro Zepeda Munro, Dr. Socorro Ruiz, Mario Lopez and of course Dr. Marco Hernandez, veterinarian for the city. Dr. Hernandez can be reached at (011-521-638) 105-0122 or (011-52-638) 102-0122 for his services. The city does surgeries Monday through Thursday between the hours of 8AM and 3PM for only $200 pesos.
Animal Adoption Center of Rocky Point will have an adoption booth at the event. If you are looking for a new addition to your family, please stop by our booth. If you would like to volunteer to help at the clinic or adoption booth please call Nancy at (011-52-638) 383-1012.
Today is April 9th but we anticipate a good response at our”Adoption Day” which is schedulrd for April 30th in conjunction with the City at the stadium and hopefully many of our babies will be adopted into good homes. We still have many dogs that need medical care:
Daisy – chemotherapy treatment for her cancer
Buddy the Dancer – chemotherapy for his cancer
Buster for his broken leg
and of course Sandy our Malamute. I am taking Sandy to Arizona this week to see an eye specialist regarding his glaucoma and what treatment will be best to alleviate any pain he may have.
Jim Schwebel of Minneapolis, Tucson and Las Conchas is paying for Sandy’s initial visit – thank you Jim. Jim has been very instrumental over the years, and even helped start AACORP many years ago. His law firm in Minneapolis has been given many awards over the years but we have a special recognition for Jim and Mary for their real concern for animals. Jim and Mary stopped by the center last month and took an interest in Sandy and his situation. Jim emailed me a week later and offered to pay for my trip to Arizona and the diagnosis for Sandy to see what can be done. Dogs suffering from glaucoma may also have persistent migraine headaches from the pressure behind the eyes. We want to make sure the Sandy does not suffer and can live without pain. He seems to get along just fine with the other dogs and manages to find his way. I am working with a clicker to train him to recognize where I am to calm him down. It can get a little exciting with the many dogs at the center.
Summer is just around the corner and we are in need of children’s plastic swimming pools for the dogs at the center.
Other needs are :
Money for the Center expenses which are over $3,000usd per month, medical expenses and supplies. (I do not take a salary – quite the opposite as I use my income to maintain the center.)
Airtight food containers – large size for 40 lb. +.
Dry dog, puppy, cat food – Kirkland brand from Costco
Canned cat and kitten food ***
Canned dog food
Dry kitten food ***
Cat liter – non-clumping ****
Liter pan liners
Cleaning supplies including paper towels, bleach, disinfectant, laundry detergent and Downy softener
Cat and dog beds and toys
Towels and blankets
Flea and Tick spray and collars
Albon and Panacur

A big thank you to all that are helping the animals. It was a long hard winter. We used many space heaters and blankets but made it through without any major health issues this winter.
Please bring all supplies and donations to the center – just follow the map to the right. We do not receive donations that are left in other locations. We are just behind and to the left (north) of the mission which was the old Villa Granada Hotel. A very popular 50’s dance spot years ago !
Please remember that I am only one person and it may take me a few minutes to get to the front gate. I may be on the computer , in the cat house or in the back with Sam and Rosie. Many times when I get to the gate people are driving off. Of course it is best if I know when you are coming but otherwise please give me time to respond !!!! The best time to visit the center to see the animals is Monday and Thursday afternoon when Antonio is here helping and we are more prepared.
