Pet of the Week – Camelia

Meet Camelia

Camelia is a medium-sized, 7-month old, mixed breed, female puppy that was found on the campus of CAM school in Colonia El Toreo.  Camelia was very fearful and shied away from the students.  The school could not keep her so they asked to bring her to the shelter.  When Camelia first arrived she was fearful and nipped people.  As she settled into her new space, she became calmer and the biting diminished.  She is now quite playful and active.  Camelia does not require any medication or special food.  She has been spayed and is ready to find a loving Forever Home with a family that will work to calm her fear of strangers.



Adoptions – Chiquito, Niebla, Sol

This week 2 of our dogs and 1 cat found their Forever Homes.


Chiquito was adopted by a man who wanted a quiet dog that would travel in the car with him and would keep him company.  He was happy to adopt an older dog.  Lucky Chiquito.


Niebla – which translates to Fog – was adopted by a family with an older son.  They already have a dog and two cats in their home.  Niebla will be a friend to dogs, cats and humans alike.

Sol (Sun) was adopted by a woman who has a kitten at home.  Sol is an older cat who will be good company for the kitten so it will not have to spend so much time alone.





Huellita con Causa IAP – Free Sterilization Clinic, Training and Certification

This past Wednesday through Friday, Huellita con Causa IAP held free sterilization clinics and training sessions for veterinarian professionals from Mazatlán, Rosario and Escuinapa.  These sessions were held at the Lions Club, which donated its facility for the program.  Thanks to the EXHAUSTIVE WORK of all involved, 334 dogs, puppies, cats and kittens were sterilized.  The funding for the sterilization training and certification program for the city’s veterinarians was provided by the state government of Sinaloa, Ministry of Health. Teachers from Culiacan and Sonora came to certify the veterinarians in a minimally invasive sterilization technique that is faster and less traumatic for the animals.  Volunteers from Amigos de los Animales helped organize and participated in the event.  Dogs and cats from the shelter were transported to the clinics and operated on all three days.  Thanks to all who donated their time and efforts to this program.  Pet sterilization is the key to controlling the ongoing problem of overpopulation.

What We Need Most Urgently

The animal shelter is still in need of kibble for our animals.  In order to reduce the possibility of intestinal problems caused by a change in food, the preferred pet food brand is Purina Dog Chow and Purina Cat Chow.
