If you are lucky enough to visit La Paz in Baja California Sur, Mexico you will be enchanted by the warm, friendly people and the unsurpassed beauty of the setting on the Bay of La Paz. But one thing you won’t be able to ignore is the unbelievable number of street dogs. Most female street dogs are pregnant, some dogs are starving, many are infested with ticks and mange, and others are treated poorly by some locals who barely have enough to feed their own families and children
It is estimated there are over 10,000 strays in the state of Baja California Sur alone, and too many are neglected, starving, injured or abused. We’re dedicated to stopping this mistreatment as well as to healing and finding new homes for these dogs.
In 2005 La Paz got it’s first refugio (dog shelter) to help the abused, homeless and sick dogs of La Paz. It has been a long, hard, seemingly endless road that brought the shelter to where it is today. The shelter has been working hard to educate children on how to take care of their pets and prevent communicable canine diseases. They also stress the importance of reducing the number of stray dogs through an aggressive spay and neuter program – which is completely free to those in need. The refuge provides food, shelter and medical care for the homeless street dogs.
100% of our funding comes from the donations of generous, caring people like you. All donations go directly to the care of the dogs. We urge you to help if you can. Any amount will make a tremendous difference.
