An Early Christmas Present San Pancho Animales
AN EARLY CHRISTMAS PRESENT
Last week San Pancho Animales gave me one of the best Christmas presents that I have ever received.
They allowed me the pleasure of working with them during their annual spay and neuter clinic.
This was the first time that my wife Sharon and I had volunteered at the clinic and we had no idea what to expect. We were welcomed with open arms and treated like old friends--- and then put to work.
In four days time the Veterinarians from Pets For Life, Dr. Poly Lopez, Dr. Jesus Pacheco, Dr. Anthony Garcia, along with Veterinary technician Leslie Caratachea performed 92 spay and neuter operations. Volunteers did everything else. The set up, the clean up, the post op recovery and monitoring the animals from reception to discharge. Each dog and cat not only got sterilized but also got nails clipped, ears cleaned, ticks removed, and a dose of flea prevention at no charge to the owner.
The work was not easy and, once the surgeries began, very fast paced. My wife and I went home each day exhausted. What a great feeling!!
The people that we met from San Pancho Animales Spay & Neuter Clinic—both on the front line and behind the scene---are dedicated to making life better for the animals of San Pancho and it was a great pleasure to meet and work with them all.
The work that San Pancho Animales does is year round. Please visit sanpanchoanimales.org to see all the great work they do and give them an early Christmas present in the form of a donation.
