ComeDog (Food for Dogs) is a program that provides food and water for street dogs and cats through public dispensers in Mexico. The program arrived in Mexico last year, and now has a presence in several states.
The 1.2-meter-high galvanized metal containers hold up to 22 kilograms of food and four liters of water. Animals that use the dispensers would become possible candidates for sterilization and adoption.
Which Lakeside animal charity will be the first to sponsor this program—maybe in conjunction with local government? The Lake Chapala Reporter will gladly assist with publicity and fundraisers.

By simply spaying and neutering one male and one female cat, more than 2,000 unwanted births can be prevented in just four years, and more than 2 million in 8.
The Lake Chapala area is very pet-friendly. If you don’t bring your beloved friends with you, there are many opportunities here to adopt a very deserving and wonderful dog or cat.
