Tune in Tuesday, October 31st at 9 a.m. for an amazing story of animal rescue.
Your host Marylin Milano sits down with Alison Sawyer, who was born in Canada and is now a resident in the US. She moved to Isla Mujeres, Mexico in 2000. What she found there was an island overrun by sad, wounded, starving dogs so she started to take them in and the 501C3 Isla Animals was born. The rescue is still working hard to save, vaccinate, spay and neuter, rehome as many animals as possible. She wrote a book about the experience called The Dog Lady of Mexico.
The government of the Island provided a space for the rescue for the last 8 years. Sadly, this year the present people in power are evicting her from that space. Alison believes that Isla Animals has done their job too well and that the present administration has not witnessed the actual problem. Past Island authorities saw the problem and honored her for her work 8 years ago. Now this administration has never seen what happens if there are no free services and education for the people.
