The McKee Project and the Jacó library have organized creative afternoons for children ages 7-14 through the month of January. The subject is animals – both pets and wildlife. Ángela María, well known to the kids in Jacó, will be working with the children. If you would like to volunteer at the library, contact Liana Robinson at corner email@example.com.
Last year, McKee welcomed Dr. José Manuel Jiménez to its spay-neuter program. With the help of Leo Hogan and Doris Schluckebier, Dr. Jiménez and Dr. Wendy Villalobos provide low-cost castrations for McKee’s rescues, as well as for pets belonging to low-income families that cannot afford the regular price. McKee’s goal for 2012 is to average 70 spayed or neutered animals per month. The group is looking for sponsors for upcoming spay days. Sponsors since December have included Myra Weiger, Hotel Mar de Luz, Sylvia van Baekel, Wishbone restaurant, Hotel Tortuga del Mar, Judy Witt, Simone Reitano, Karen Huss, Leo Plumley and Liz from Taco Bar. If you would like to be a sponsor, contact Katja Bader at firstname.lastname@example.org or 2643-4012.
