Arenal Report

February 19, 2010

The latest spay and neuter clinic for Arenal dogs and cats will be this Sunday, Feb. 21, in Tilarán, in the salón comunal in Barrio El Carmen. Appointments can be made with the bilingual Dr. Ana Cristina Rojas at El Colono Veterinaria (8824-7576). The cost per cat or dog, male or female, is ¢10,000 ($18).

Organizer Judy Reisman writes that G-PAW (Guanacaste Province Animal Welfare) is also looking for sponsors to help cover the cost of surgery for a number of street animals that will be brought in, as well as animals from indigent families. While ¢10,000 will cover the entire cost of one animal, donations of any amount are welcome.

The new president of Fuentes Verdes Ecological Association is Patricia Brenes, longtime Tilarán activist, arts maven and entrepreneur. In a future report, we’ll write about her ideas for the year ahead and also announce the other new officers.
