Colonia Palmar de Haramara is a very nice neighborhood located just southeast of the cruise ship terminal with leafy green parks, tree-lined cobbled streets, and like most neighborhoods, has lots of cats and dogs. Candace Shaw, who generously donated her charming home for the clinic, said people were at her door with their pets at 6:30 AM on the first day and kept arriving that early for the remainder of the surgery week.
One woman traveled by bus from Bucerias with her six cats in a box. Because the clinic was already full, Candace let the cats overnight so they would be insured a space the following morning.
Another woman had taken three dogs belonging to a neighbor and had been turned away twice at the Valle Dorado clinic and at 7 AM, was too late to get a space for them.
Again, Candace let the animals do an overnight. Because people were turned away every day of the clinic, Candace offered to host a second one the week after next.
