Mishu’s Answer: Well, I’m an immigrant from Guatemala to the USA and I don’t think I changed my bark when I moved, so I would say there is one barking language! (Thanks to animalaware.org for rescuing me from the streets of Guatemala!)
Animal Aware is one of Latin America’s leading animal welfare organizations. Located in San Lucas, Guatemala, it rescues hundreds of dogs, cats, and other animals every year. There, with volunteer vets, it vaccinates, cares for, and spays/neuters the animals it rescues, and works to get them adopted. Animals that are not adopted are kept at Animal Aware.
Volunteers from all over the world come to Animal Aware and help care for the rescued animals. Mishu was one of them. She was found tied to the gate of animal aware as a small puppy — very skinny, alone, and afraid. They nursed her back to health and prepared her for adoption, while a sister group in San Francisco transported her to the United States along with three other puppies. We’ll be forever grateful to Animal Aware for what they did for Mishu!
