Help 2 Three Legged Doggies Get To New Hampshire!

3legdogs001

Introducing: Chona and Citri.

Chona was hit by a speeding truck on Ave 65 witnessed by many citizens who called the Humane Society to help. Volunteers and vets attended the scene and brought Chona back to the Humane Society. Our vet Dr Marcelo Garcia with a keen interest in orthopedics tried very hard to rehabilitate Chona from her brachial plexus injury she suffered to her right front leg. She never did regain the use of the leg and drag it around. She had no feeling in the paw and puppies often played with her paw like it was a toy. She eventually had to be amputated.

Citri fell from the truck of her owners. Barely 3 months old, her owners rushed her into the clinic. They asked everything to be done to save her life and then they abandoned her at the shelter. Citri was treated for shock and an emergency amputation was performed. She is a playful pup and has no idea that she has any limitation and she does not. She has come on our pet parade on Sunday nights and she never tires and is the leader of the pack!

These two love to play together and they are really funny to watch. Both dogs are extremely loving and playful.

Well the good news is, our good friend and kennel sponsor Mark Grenier has a home for both in New Hampshire. Mark has taken many Cozumel dogs back with him and one is a 3 legged dog named Pi. Mark loves tripods!

We are looking to get these dogs up to Boston or any other airport that will bring them near New Hampshire. American Airlines is the preferred airline to get them there, also Mexicana, United or any airline that will take underneath (forget Continental…..cargo charges). US Airways will not work as they only take under the seat. Mark is willing to drive up to 300 miles to pick them up.

Please let us know if you can help or if you know of anybody who can help escort these lovely dogs. We will do everything: papers, bring to airport, help them get checked in and stay with you until they are boarded onto the plane. It is so easy to be an escort and you are truly helping save a dog’s life by doing so.

I understand that the dogs need to make their way to NH but where are they located now?

Great news!

We found escorts via Trip Advisor Cozumel Discussion forum. These two dogs originate from the Cozumel Humane Society of Cozumel. We are a 100% non-profit group with ZERO governemt help. We have a shelter for the unwanted and a veterinary clinic. We employ vets and have launched the first ever permanent free spay neuter campaign in all of Mexico. We hope by our efforts will set an example for other areas in Mexico to help end the endless animal suffering in this country. Our aim is to end extermination and teach that the only solution is to spay and neuter companion pets. In the mean time we due our very best to find homes, but there are just not enough good homes here in Cozumel. Please help support our cause to end the animal suffering of the animals here in Mexico. We are supporting 60 dogs and puppies at our shelter and have more than a 100 cats that many will never have a home for. Some of our dogs, especially border collie mixes have been with us for more than a year, many of our cats have been with us for years! Please visit our website:

All the org's in Mexico often depend on people willing to escort animals to their great new homes. We try very hard to adopt as many locally as possibly, but again there are just not enough good homes for every animal here.

We hope that in the next 3 years we will have addressed the replacement issue effectively enough we will one day have waiting lists for adoption.

I love hearing stories like this. If only we as humans could be so adaptable and so happy with our lives… the world would be a much different place 🙂

We are so very happy for both these dogs, both so near death when first brought to our clinic and both are now so vibrant and healthy and well adjusted to only having 3 legs. The bond between the two of them is amazing! I am kind of hoping maybe, just maybe the two dogs could be adopted together. Will post the outcome when they reach New Hampshire. The escorts are so excited to help. We are so simply thrilled they will make it to NH this quickly. Now we just really need somebody heading our way to bring their transport kennels back. They are a HUGE NEED for us. We need them to hold animals pre and post op spay and neuter and for rescues!

Thank you all for caring about these two lovelies!
