Happy Dogs in Cuenca (HDiC) volunteers worked hard in cooperation with ARCA at this past weekend’s El Vecino clinic. Completely free spay and neuter surgeries were performed on 124 dogs and cats. While HDiC normally funds these surgeries, those performed this weekend were paid for by the Municipality under its recently enacted sterilization campaign. HDiC is proud to provide many of the volunteers needed at these Municipality clinics.
When the Municipality-funded clinics end, HDiC will continue holding and funding clinics through 2015. Subsequent HDiC clinics will depend on donations. Each two day event presently costs between $2,500 and $3,000 and with the veterinarians becoming faster with every clinic — enabling us to do more surgeries — more surgeries means more expenses.
If your heart twists every time you see a starving, frightened dog in the street, and wish you could do SOMEthing, please consider supporting HDiC’s efforts with a cash donation to keep these free sterilization clinics going. Thanks much!
