Update


A lot more has been going on... Several puppies has been rescued too.
There was an explosion last week at the Caribbean Petroleum Co. As a security measure all refineries were guarded by the police. The Shell plant is close to the beach so I wasn't allowed to enter during that time. The dogs were whithout food for several days and some of them moved to other places. Some are missing including Darlene who has cancer. Alison and Pete disappeared the week before. I was told that Animal Control went there a couple of weeks ago...
I'm not doing updates as frequently as before because my computer is dead. I'm using a computer at the school.

Update on the 9 puppies



One more of the these 9 died of parvo. Apparently 2 of the Rottie-like puppies were the ones who died. The other 7 are ok. Five of them are in foster care right now--I think they are ready for adoption.

Of those I was fostering Katya amd Maia and I'm keeping them (pictures: Katya--brown and Maya--black and white).

Update



I haven’t much time to update the blog lately but a lot has been going on.  A thousands  of people have been fired by the new government in the last few months and a result a lot of people are abandoning their pets (that’s not an excuse for being cruel, of course but…) and there are more pets wandering the streets than ever.

First of all, the 9 puppies were rescued by Maritza Rodriguez from All Sato Rescue, Will Divney and some friends. I have 2 of the puppies at home (I may keep them both) and the other 7 were taken to the vet for boarding. Unfortunately one of them died this weekend (I still don’t have the info on which one, but I was told it was one of the smaller ones).

Other 8 puppies were dumped immediately after the group of nine was rescued, including 2 one week old  puppies—unable to feed by themselves. Fortunately for them Maritza is taking care of those 2. The other 6 remained at the beach for lack of foster homes, but someone took the only male, so there are 5 now.I have found Madison’s puppies, the dog that was abandoned  last month--pregnant and with 2 older pups. I think there are 6 puppies of nearly a month old.
