|Magic Light Time ~ Winter|
At the end of the yard, the bay was molten gold. A sea of gold. Take that, Midas.
Magic light time doesn't last long, scarce minutes. It changes everything it touches, which is everything. You can bathe in it.
It fades, it flees slowly, and poof. It's gone.
|Cwim plays rock the balance beam waiting for me to come up from the dock. Surely it is dinner time.|
The Mayor needs to respond, ACDEC needs to respond. The breaking point has been reached. The helpers need help. Now. Please add your voices to Animal Welfare of Culebra. Get on the phone, encourage the powers that be to use that power, for the good of the animals, for the good of Culebra. Thank you, Helena. Thank you, volunteers. Thank you, people willing to act. Thank you in advance, Mayor Solis and the government of Culebra.
Thousands of dogs wander the streets and beaches of Puerto Rico every day because they have nobody to care for them. We have the same situation in Culebra.
Packs of abandoned animals search for food, water and human compassion. Many of them are un-neutered, malnourished discarded pets that breed. There is a whole new generation of wild dogs living at the dump site above Tamarindo. They frequent Flamenco Beach, and often in search of food, kill feral cats who live there.
Animal Welfare of Culebra is doing all it can to rescue abandoned animals, often in desperate need of veterinary service. A few dedicated volunteers can only do so much. We don’t have a resident vet on Culebra so volunteers are making several trips to Fajardo every single week to help rescued animals.
If Flamenco beach is Culebra’s pride and joy as well as island’s bread and butter that attracts numerous tourists every year, what will happen if tourists and locals alike get attacked by hungry packs of animals? Do we actually need to wait for a child to get bitten by a wild animal before we actually do something about it?
We need a sustainable and humane Animal Welfare program to be fully supported by Culebra’s local government. Please help! Take a minute, have friends and family call Mayor Ivan’s office as.
The more of us call, the greater are our chances for help.
