We just love to report news about local heroes.
As Guatemalan Independence Day draws near, there has been a sharp increase in the launching of recreational boats.
The other day our friend Mer checked in on some of the Las Cavernas puppies and the boat yard workers expressed concern about the safety of the pups with all the holiday traffic.
In response, Mer gave them some money and asked if they would go buy materials and construct something temporary but secure.
Young men Enrique and Manuel quickly went to work. The new public dog house will have a dry roof and a soft floor. Mama will be able to come and go but the pups will be confined until they’re more grown and the immediate hazzards have passed.
We proudly salute Mer, Enrique, Manuel, and Gerardo for their care and help to homeless animals in their communities.
