Maryel Santos May 

Maryel is the main vet at the shelter. She was born in Mérida, Yucatán in 1988. Since she was small, she’s wanted to be veterinarian, just like her parents. At the age of six she began rescue orphaned puppies and kittens from the streets  along with her mother. Since then it has not been easy losing some battles and that is how she understood that it is not just about rescuing animals but also spaying and neutering them too so many animals don´t suffer in the future by being abandoned and badly treated.
She graduated from the Universidad Autónoma de Yucatán in 2012. She completed her training on Clinical practice on Planned Pethood México, along with a warm family of doctors and veterinary students. Planned Pethood México are pioneers in macrocampaigns of spay/neuter in dogs and cats. Since November of 2014 she is making her dream come true, working in a shelter and helping animals as a vet.
