Registration. People arrive with their pets, who are operated on in the order they arrive. Dr. Jaime Martinez Castro, DVM, the Director of CCF, is on the right.
Prep for surgery. This sweet dog has already had a mild tranquilizer, and Marissa is administering the final anesthesia before the surgery.
Surgery. Yep, the veterinarians are young and very skilled, and we are outside in a park. As you can see, the free spay/neuter is for cats as well as dogs.
Recovery time. We didn't have a lot of space, so we set up a double decker system. Each animal is monitored for temperature and heart rate until they are fully awake and can leave with their owners.
This owner is sitting with her dog while she wakes up. The young vet is giving her a shot of antibiotics.
We had fun taking photos today. The sign says, "I'm sterilized. Are you?"
Happy owners! We love that they bring in their pets. They love that the vets do a GREAT job, and that it's all free!
A little joke. The sign says, "I'm almost sterilized. Are you?"
Another happy owner!
Here are some of the team of volunteers!
Thanks for joining us today! We have four more days of FREE spay/neuters this week. I don't know if there will be time to post photos every day, but I'll be back when I can. Hugs to you all, and have a totally wonderful week! Please leave comments if you wish! I'll answer as quickly as I can!
