VIVA’s second spay clinic ,”La Gran Campana de Esterilizacion”, was held August 1-4 Over 120 surgeries were performed by Dr. Joaquin Villasenor. This was double the surgeries performed in the first clinic and a record by Dr. Villasenor who stayed an extra day to accommodate extra appointments. Spay clinics will be planned every 3 months throughout the year. The next clinic is planned for October. Please support VIVA’s ongoing efforts to raise funds for these affordable clinics by supporting their “Spay Is the Way” spay and neuter campaign.
With the success of the spay clinic and its outreach to the local Mexican community, respect for VIVA’s animal assistance efforts are resonating throughout the community. A volunteer shares: “I love to be able to drive through town with my head up (instead of looking out windows). SF has come a long, long way in 35 years… thanks to a whole lot of wonderful, caring people… and I am happy to be part of VIVA.”
Proudly, San Felipe is the home of many retired health professionals who eagerly share their medical knowledge at the clinics. With the outpouring of support, Dr. Joaquin Villasenor, who travels Mexico to champion spay and neutering, says that San Felipe can be the town that wins the battle over animal overpopulation. “San Felipe can do it.”
