If there’s one thing we know at SayulitAnimals, it’s how powerful the combination of human kindness paired with proven therapeutic techniques can be, in rehabilitating even the worst cases of animal abuse, disease or injury. Although we often see animals faced with insurmountable odds for survival, we have learned that they have capacities beyond our wildest expectations, so we never give up hope! Ready to be inspired? Below is just one of our amazing success stories…
Nino was found walking along the highway just outside of Bucerias, Nayarit. Emaciated, dehydrated and covered in painful sores, ticks and mange, he was initially wary when first approached by Sara Briner. Ever persistent, Sara continued to coax him closer and closer, until finally, Nino allowed himself to be helped…
Provided with expert veterinarian direction and the loving, dedicated care of the SayulitAnimals team, Nino slowly recovered. Homemade dog food of liver, vegetables and oatmeal, as well as exfoliating skin treatments helped him to both gain weight and regrow his coat.
A mere two months after Nino was found near death on the highway, he was well enough to be placed with Faith, his foster mother, in California. And a short time after that, he was adopted by Joan and Paul into their loving home near Lake Tahoe; the life he deserved all along.
Sadly, Nino passed away only a few months later after a short battle with cancer. Far from his horrific past, Nino’s last months were spent in comfort – he was safe, well fed and very loved. A loving, forgiving and gentle soul, Nino touched many hearts; he lives on in the memories of those fortunate enough to have known him. His story is proof that the actions of a compassionate few can truly change the world.
In May 2014, I travelled with my Mom from the Pacific Northwest to Sayulita. Our entire motivation for visiting was rest, relaxation, and beach time. My mom, ever the fitness buff, discovered MexiFit, and suggested we give it a try.
We arrived ready to sweat at MexiFit, not really knowing what to expect. Shelly Yogev (Mexifit owner and head of the Medical Aid For Street Animals program at SayulitAnimals) and Reina -– a tiny, struggling street dog, greeted us.
