ALSO Need Help in Kanasin January 26

We still need some meals for Sunday, 26 January. It can be simple as sandwiches, or as elaborate as you want, but needs to be easy to eat, there is no sit down table service, everyone eats on the go.
We need snacks; fruit, granola bars, pretzels, etc. for both days
A couple loaves of meat and/or cheese sandwiches for each day would be nice
I have a large bag of candy
We need sodas, and water

We need people to help transport the Out of Town Vets to and from Kanasin.

REGISTRATION (AFAD), a volunteer checks to ensure animals are pre-registered. If the animal is not recorded/ registered place them on the waiting list, if indeed they have an appointment. Volunteers assist in filling out the forms and assigned folio.
We still need help for RECOVERY, both dogs and cats. Owners and Recovery Volunteers will monitor and assist the animals coming out of recovery from anesthesia, always keeping the animals folio close at hand. Once the Vet Tech says it is okay to release the animal, you direct the owner to pick up their medications and point them to the check out area.

Contact AFAD at + 52 (99) 9920 5019 / 0449999476319 or at if you can help at any time!

Thank You all so much for your volunteer efforts... everyone really does make a difference!

    In 2012, I was visiting the Yucatan for the first time. As dog lovers, we wanted to check out the Chicxulub Spay ‘n Neuter Clinic. I took some great photos of the volunteers, pets and pet owners (with their permission). You can see them in my blog post "Dog Days of Mexico" This is a great cause!
