In addition to that, we want to extend a special thank you to Dr. Traversi from the Sunset Cliffs Animal Hospital located in the U.S.
Their assistance with seven free sterilizations of rescued animals. This is extremely valuable to us, and a huge step towards placing rescued animals in permanent homes.
Mini Sterilization Clinic - June 2015
10 female dogs
7 male dogs
5 female cats
1 male cat
TOTAL: 23 animals, spayed/neutered
*We chose to hold a mini clinic due to a shortage of volunteer vets during the month of June. If you are a licensed veterinarian in the U.S., live in or around the San Diego area, and would consider dedicating a full Sunday to perform cat/dog sterilizations in Tijuana, please contact email@example.com.

HSTJ Itchy-Scratchy Clinics - June 2015
The total animals treated at our street clinics during the month of June were 346 cats and dogs.
THE CLINICS WERE HELD IN:
DIF (Family Community Center) at Granjas Familiares
Colonia Rial de San Francisco
Colonia Valle Verde
Colonia El Pipila
Please consider volunteering at one of our MASH Sterilization Clinics, held once a month, usually on Sundays; or at one of our Itchy-Scratchy clinics, held weekly, usually on Saturdays.
Also, a small monetary donation goes a long way to help the suffering animals in Mexico. To help us continue with these and many other programs we run year-round in Tijuana, we rely on donations from people who wish to help. We also welcome unopened bags of fresh dog/cat food, as well as grooming supplies, flea/tick treatment, and deworming medications.
