Surgery days at the Caye Caulker Humane Society are a lot like parties where everyone winds up passed out at the end. The dogs play and play and play and then get anesthesia. Today was no different. Lots of playing and socializing and a few less puppies down the road. All good news! And as usual, we had lots of cute patients. Here’s just a peek at the action:
Brian is a good natured gentleman of no fixed address. He loves to meet new friends from around the world and can often be seen guiding tourists around the island, showing them the sights of Caye Caulker. I assume he makes his living in eggs scrambled in vacation cottage kitchens and restaurant left-overs. If you see him, buy him a meal and he may tell you about some of his amazing adventures.
Every Saturday morning from 9 – 11 AM the Humane Society holds a clinic for island animals. Today was a busy one! Here are some highlights:
Three sisters who had been wandering around stray were reunited. Two have been adopted by clinic volunteer Preston and his family and we have our fingers crossed on the third.
A big basket of puppies came in for their second set of shots and worming. They’re sure growing fast!
These two look like little stuffed toys but they’re real dogs. They also needed puppy shots and worming.
And Bessina got a bath and treatment for some skin problems.
Angelle can be found with her person Paulette at the Red Flower Gallery across the road from China Town market. She enthusiastically greets gallery visitors by jumping up and down with glee and yipping excitedly.
Angelle is a puppy-mill rescue dog originally from Minnesota, now enjoying the warmth of Caye Caulker life.
After a long hiatus, Dogs of Caye Caulker is back. There are lots of new dogs on the caye and some old favorites that we hope to catch up with so there’s work to do! Here’s some of what’s going on in the dog world on Caye Caulker:
The Caye Caulker Humane Society recently organized another spay / neuter event. It wasn’t quite as big a production as the big Helping Paws Beyond Borders event in October but it was a great success!
Dr. Holly Gill and vet tech Jess generously spent 2 of their precious vacation days volunteering at the CCHS clinic spaying and neutering cats and dogs and checking up injured and sick pets. We sure appreciated it since the regular vet, Dr. Zeke has been out of the country for a few months!
And finally, there was a litter of tiny puppies that Sandy is fostering that came in to be checked on by the vet. It was too hard to choose just one shot of them:
The Barrier Reef Sports bar has a new owner and the owner, Scott, has a new BFF!
Shortly after moving to Caye Caulker and taking over the Sports Bar Scott adopted Phin. Now Phin is on staff full time ready to greet you when you come in for a beer or a meal, to play trivia or listen to the Friday afternoon Jam.
You can like the Sports Bar on Facebook and send notes pressuring Scott to post more photos of the adorable Phin. And don’t forget to take a photo with him when you visit!
