Camila has been rescued!
The city of Cancun came through, Camila, the abused dog which inspired the march for animal rights, has been removed from her torturous home. The dog catcher picked her up yesterday (an event not without its own scandal, but that's for another day) and Camila is waiting in the pound to be adopted. Anyone interested in taking the last step in ensuring her future happiness can apply with the municipal pound for her adoption. Cancunenses, step up, help this poor pup who has had such a miserable life thus far! She is apparently a black Labrador (or mix with Lab) and is about nine months old. Applications for her adoption are being taken at the following location:
Av Nichupte Region 99 Mz. 70 lote 1B
This poor animal would have continued to suffer if it were not for the efforts of Maria Alicia and her volunteers at the RAP Cancun Animal Rescue. I want to personally thank her for her great efforts in helping all the animals of Cancun. As great as it is to know that Camila has been helped, she is but one of thousands of animals in similar or worse situations in Cancun. If you can help RAP in anyway, step up and be heard, volunteer your time or adopt a dog, let's all make Cancun a better place for all.
Here's a short video of Sunday's march, spread the good word!
Thanks for your kind attention to this important matter, I appreciate all the nice comments and emails. The RAP website is having trouble with their Paypal, if you would like to donate to the cause, please send me an email and I will put you in touch with someone who can help you out.
