A BIG THANK YOU TO ALL THAT HELPED AND TO MAYOR ALEJANDRO ZAPEDA MUNRO, JOSE SANTOS AND DR. SOCORRO RUIZ VILLAREAL. THE CITY ALSO PRESENTED NANCY PHELAN WITH RECOGNITION FOR HER SPONSORSHIP AND HELP WITH THE ANIMALS OF ROCKY POINT.
The city has scheduled an adoption day on the 23rd of December with all the puppies that are being surrendered to the city. A few days ago the city brought 10 puppies to the Animal Adoption Center of Rocky Point to be cared for until the adoption event.
We are showing many of the animals that are at the center. Please come visit and adopt or sponsor a dog or cat for 2012. $100usd will provide medical care , food and a bed for one animal.
Lucky, our Alpha male, is still here at the center and watching over his four little girls – Sky, Chichi, Nicki and Brownie pictured here. If you are interested in the adoption one of these tiny girls please give me a call at (011-52-638) 383-1012. All the dogs for adoption have been spayed/neutered and have all their vacinnes.
A BIG THANK YOU TO SCHWEBEL, GOETZ AND SIEBEN LAW FIRM A PROMINENT LAW FIRM IN MINNEAPOLIS FOR THEIR VERY GENEROUS DONATION OF $1,000.00. JIM AND MARY SCHWEBEL OF MINNEAPOLIS ALSO DONATED $1,000.00 IN DECEMBER. A BIG PAWS UP TO THE SCHWEBELS!
It has been a struggle to maintain the center with expenses of over $3000.00 per month and more, depending on the medical bills. Speaking of medical bills, there was a little dog being spayed at the clinic that needs surgery to remove shells from her intestines. AACORP has offered to pay for her surgery. We now have to wait until April for the next clinic and will need funds for the spay/neuter surgeries that will be needed.
Several of you have called or emailed AACORP regarding the German Shepherd female dog, abandonded at the Pemex station on the outskirts of town. I have been there several times looking for her to no avail, but left my business card with one of the fellows at the station. Well, today he gave the card to a couple who brought the dog to the center. I have named her Noel since she will now have a wonderful Xmas – warm, fed and cozy. Pictures next issue as the deadline is tonight for the article and many visitors are here today so my time is limited ! She looks very healthy and she is a very friendly, lovable dog. Winter has arrived and we have many needs at the center. Dog Beds – Costco has great dog beds for $20 and $25. They are nice and sturdy for the larger animals. Blankets without filling, bleach, windex, disinfectant, Downy, laudry soap, puppy and kitten dry food., paper towels, small and medium collars, baby wipes and, of course, dog and cat food. We try to keep the dogs at the center on Kirkland or Purina, but we are feeding over 100 dogs in the city depending on the donations that we receive. We are in need of an SUV to transport the animals and supplies. If you can volunteer to take a dog for the day, to walk on the beach, they would appreciate it. I am only one person and my time is limited. There is not enough time in the day to do all that is needed, so baths and walks are the last on my list.
I hope all of our wonderful animal friends have a Happy New Year and may all you wishes come true in 2012.
Nancy & “The Gang”
