What A Wonderful Community - The spay & neuter clinic this past weekend was a huge success thanks most of all to the kind, generous, tireless vets and vet techs who came from Aspen. They were on their feet operating for three days - the last day for ten hours and finished by lamplight. Close to 200 animals were operated on over the three-day period.

Thank you to those who volunteered their time, those who brought food, drinks, snacks, fruit and supplies. Thank you to those who helped their Mexican friends and neighbors bring in their dogs and cats. And a huge thank you to Barbara Perkins for once again providing the space. And this community needs to know that without Angelique Schorenstein and Susan McPherson none of this would happen. They both deserve sainthood. - Maryann
