Caring For God's other Critters on Utila

The island of Utila, off the north coast of Honduras, is different from the rest of the country.  Almost an island paradise, many American and European expatriates call it home after their retirement.   Dr. Loretta Potts, DVM left her practice in California for Utila.  She has begun a small practice on the island serving all the people and their animals.   Utila Animal Rescue and Pet Care offers free neutering and care for the many animals on the island.  The clinic is funded by Dr. Loretta and many generous residents, as well as people in the US.   Recently, an Alabama veterinarian arranged for delivery of hundreds of rabies vaccine doses obtained through the state of Alabama.  An AHMEN team delivered the vaccine and other supplies and equipment to Utila.   Visit their Web Page to learn more about Dr. Potts and this mission to help God’s other critters.
