June 2016 - Mobile Itchy-Scratchy Clinics



In June 2016 we’ve had 5 Mobile Itchy-Scratchy clinics. Three of them at Plaza Civica Salvatierra.
The dates are as follows:

1. On June 4, 2016 we treated 39 Dogs and 5 Cats, for a total of 44 animals.

2. On June 9, 2016 we treated 80 Dogs and 4 Cats, for a total of 84 animals.

3. On June 18, 2016 we were at Colonia Nueva Aurora and treated 170 Dogs and 8 Cats, for a total of 178 pets.

4. On June 19, 2016 another team was at Colonia El Tecolote and was able to treat 69 Dogs and 12 Cats, for a total of 81 animals!

5. On June 23, 2016 we were once again in Plaza Civica Salvatierra (where the local Health Fair was also taking place). We were able to treat 159 Dogs and 12 Cats, for a total of 171 animals!
One of the volunteers writes:
"It was amazing to see people who were just going to the fair for their own benefit... run back home, bring their pets, and take the time to wait for their turn. Even though it was a very hot day and we didn’t have a shade for them to rest from the sun, they waited. Some took turns waiting under the building or under a big tree that was there. We were so busy attending the people that we couldn't take many pictures. [This program] had a lot of success there."

This gives us a total of 517 Dogs and 41 cats treated during the month of June 2016, which amounts to 558 animals that are now living a better and more comfortable life.
