|Ayuda a Los Animals Caring Crate Program|
Laura Gelezunas - PVNN
Ayuda a Los Animals, a non-profit organization, is part of the PEACE charity association. They are gearing up for another season of spay and neuter clinics, and there's an easy way for you to lend a paw if you are planning a trip to the Bay of Banderas.

High-volume spay and neuter clinics use an immense amount of supplies, everything from surgical gloves to stethoscopes and operating tables to hair clippers.
Over the last five years Ayuda a Los Animals has saved millions, yes, millions of unwanted cats and dogs from being born through their aggressive campaign in Nayarit.
"We've grown so much in Nayarit and have been looking for the right people to work with in Jalisco for a long time," says Molly Fisher, PEACE Director, "So we're really excited about more spay and neuter clinics happening there."
To start a Jalisco, high-volume spay and neuter campaign all the supplies for a mobile animal surgical hospital are needed. And a great way to assist is to bring down a new or used pet crate. Small, medium and large sizes are needed. These can be filled with old sheets or comforters, and old towels. Flea and tick collars, water and food dishes, plus new and/or used collars for dogs and cats, plus leashes and slip leads are needed.
Once the crate is full, tape it up and check it as a piece of luggage. Include a duffel bag for items to take home. This is a super easy way to help in the humane efforts of animal population control in the Bay of Banderas.
