The City of Merida and local volunteers are helping to sterilize animals in south Merida this weekend. Read how this came about, what will be happening and how you can participate…now, or in the future.

By Jill Benson, Volunteer

So many times, we will see an animal being abused or neglected and feel powerless to do anything because we just cannot adopt one more, or because the animal belongs to someone else. Now, there IS something you can do… and here’s how!

This week, read the second in a series of stories about local animals, hoping that we can help our readers understand the plight of the animals at our shelters and the importance of considering adopting vs. buying a pet. If, after reading these, you want to help, contact one of the organizations. Also, what to do when you see an animal mistreated?

By Working Gringos

This week, we feature two dogs ready for new homes: Mecanico was found on the streets, and is now healthy and ready to love and be loved. Nacho has had a good home but his former owners cannot keep him…
