Laurie and Cathy arrived early with their camera to interview team members and observe surgeries and vaccinations. It was an incredibly humid day, with quite a few frustrating circumstances, including the sad news that one of Kenny's cats was attacked by a dog last night and killed.
Volunteers attempted to capture Bambi, a stray female dog in heat. When this proved too difficult, they decided they would round up the posse of male strays after her and neuter as many of them as possible.
"I'm exhausted," said Jackie. "We did a lot of surgeries today."
A partial eye enucleation was undertaken on one of Kenny's cats, as well as a number of pregnant spays, which is always hard for the team to do. Our largest number of surgeries to date was completed today, including 7 cat spays, 2 cat neuters, 1 dog spay, 4 dog neuters, and a tooth extraction on a feline.
The team was kept busy with surgeries, working past sunset into the darkness, and finishing up well after 6pm.
