Juntos continues outreach work in the Barrio Lucila Franco

Posted in: Clinics and Workshops

Continuing with our community outreach work, Juntos in conjunction with REDES, the department of family services once again visited Lucila Franco. And once again Dra. Andrea Kaufman along with her assistant Cris Velazquez offered their services. Cats, dogs, horses and even a goat were evaluated by the veterinarian who administered free vaccines and worm medicine.
Meanwhile we held an activity for the children. They were asked to think about a crucial difference between wild animals and domesticated animals. They learned that their pets are dependent on them not only for food, water and shelter but for love and compassion as well. The activity culminated with the creation of a “Circle of Compassion” poster depicting all that the children care about and desire to help : animals, people and the environment.
Lucia Franco is a colorful community with many, many animals. The community has expressed a readiness to have their pets sterilized as they understand that this will add to the health and happiness of their pet while it will also very importantly_dsc7801 _dsc7812 _dsc7822 _dsc7840 serve to decrease the number of unwanted animals. Juntos plans to find a way to make this happen. It is time to close the circle of caring not only by providing education but also by offering the means!_dsc7780_dsc7806_dsc7768
