'A love for dogs inspired a young man to pursue a project in Oaxaca city to ensure that animals living on the street have something to eat and drink.

Jonathan Tonatiuh Hernández Eslava, a 24-year-old México state native, paints and installs PVC tubing which functions as feeding stations for street dogs and other domestic animals that don’t have a home.'
'Brightly painted PVC tubing keeps street dogs fed'

Sadly the priest was filmed removing it.
Would this be an option in Ajijic?

What say you?

I have mixed feelings about it. As we know, in nature an increase in food supply leads to an increase in the number of animals. Unless there is a sterilization program in a city, providing food will only lead to more stray dogs in the streets.

I used to know a veterinarian who had a RV who only provided service to low income people. He sterilized male cats and dogs for free. Rabies was $5.00 and of course he accepted other people after the low income people went first.

Sadly her retired at the age of 80.

We have a free clinic in my hometown in Texas and occasionally I go in to volunteer. They appreciate me coming in but I believe I get the most benefit out of it.

Back on topic, I agree with increased birthrates.

Maybe do both, free sterilization and rabies vaccinations.

The local vets could rotate monthly stations in the plazas.

Also I'm sure the animal lovers would be happy to donate food.

They have the same tubes occasionally outside the butcher store in the Ajijic plaza. One has food the other has water.

I know occasionally there were free vaccinations on the S.side of the lake.

The health department also gave out little mesh bags of stuff to put in your tinaco and checked for standing water.

I use the stuff here and in Texas.

'These briquets can be used in virtually any standing water site where mosquito larvae grow. As the briquets float, BTI (or bacillus thuringiensis israelensis, a natural mosquito-killing biocontrol agent) is slowly released at the water’s surface and gradually settles in the water where it is consumed mosquito larvae.'

'IS THIS PRODUCT SAFE FOR OTHER ANIMALS TO DRINK LIKE CATS, SQUIRELS AND VARIOUS BIRDS?
A shopper on Jun 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I use the bti in a small pond that contain goldfish. Haven’t had a fish die in the 5 years Since using it. Along with that, everything in the neighborhood drinks from it as well and they return day after day unharmed. Birds, squirrels, frogs and toads, snakes, woodchuck, skunks and raccoons. Use the bti to make traps. Fill a bucket with a little water, put some grass clippings in and put a bti dunk in. The mosquito will lay its eggs. They will die in the larvae stage'

Apparently there still is because a person I know had her 3 dogs vaccinated yesterday on the south side of the lake in this manner.

Operación Amor runs free spay and neuter clinics all over our area. My friend is one of the people who runs them. Unfortunately there is never a shortage of animals.

I know one time I was home and a nurse with a black doctors bag asked if my vaccinations were current, they were not, she gave me a tetanus shot.

She was with the health department vaccinating for measles, mumps for sure.

Does the health department still do human vaccinations door to door? This was on the S. Side.

There is also a feeding/water station outside the bakery/cafe on Juarez, just north of Hidalgo in Ajijic.

Of course the only problem with this is once the number of street dogs becomes critical out comes the poison...........

This project, developing an anti -conception pill for dogs and cats is worth supporting. Delivered through dog biscuits or injections. Some stunning numbers about how many animals can be produced in a dog's or cat's sexual lifetime.

Just imagine the number of animals there would be without that wonderful program.
