Spay And Neuter Clinics 2010


Spay and Neuter clinic with Heike Müller

07/30 - 08/06/2010

Of course we wanted to send also in 2010 agains vets from Germany to the Caribbean. To advertise this we designed an exposé about our work including the spay and neuter clinics we had so far participated in, either through financial support or by sending doctors, and send it in the beginning of 2010 to many German veterinaries and animal clinics. Heike Müler, veterinary from the animal hospital Bergstrasse, was the first to follow our call. Her employer, befriended colleagues and pharmacies were incredibly generous and donated medicaments, instruments, suture, drapes and bandages worth 900 Euro. Heike Müller flew to Puerto Plata with 61 kilos of medical supplies. Between July 30th and August 6th Heike Müller spayed and neutered 36 animals, 17 bitches, 9 males, 6 queens and 2 toms.

Wolfgang, Judy's German boxfriend, who took the same plane as Heike Müller, took care that the recreational part wasn't nglected during Heike's stay. On her way back Heike was accompanied by little Bonita, a puppy which had been rescued by the German tourist Marcus Speh in January 2010 at Bonita Beach near Las Terrenas. Marcus, being in love with his puppy, wouldn't giver her up for no reason in the world and asked us for help to get Bonita to Germany. This was our first encounter with the difficult procedures of importing a dog from outside the EU. After having spent half a year at Judy's Pet Lodge and having passed all the necessary tests, Bonita could finally fly to Germany with Heike and was met at the airport by Marcus who was at that moment the happiest man in the world…

Bonita has now her own homepage http://bonitas.hunde-homepage.com/, where we can follow her progress. Heike will come back. Next time her mum wants to come along for a vacation after having heard all the wonderful stories about the Dominican Republic…
