|Baja Dogs La Paz, Inc. was formed in 2008 as a 501(c)(3) charity to support a Mexican dog refuge that operated in La Paz by the same name. This Mexican dog refuge was incorporated in Mexico - so the distinguishing characteristic in its name was the "A.C." at the end instead of the "Inc." While both organizations were legally separate entities under completely separate governments, they had the same name to show that they worked together seamlessly for the benefit of U.S. donors as well as the Mexican community. It didn't matter that the public thought of them as one entity because both organizations existed solely for the purpose of rescuing stray/abandoned dogs and rehabilitating them at the La Paz shelter.|
|The benefit to having a U.S. charity was that donors filing a U.S. return could receive a tax deduction. Several years ago, the Mexican refuge (Baja Dogs La Paz, A.C.) closed its doors. However, the U.S. charity (Baja Dogs La Paz, Inc.) opted to continue operating with the goal of helping address the problem of stray/abandoned dogs in and around the city of La Paz, BCS, Mexico.|
|It continues to operate today as a funding arm for Mexican charities and projects. So while many people still think of the local La Paz shelter when they hear the name Baja Dogs La Paz, its mission and purpose has grown and expanded well beyond that into an organization that seeks to address the overpopulation of dogs through a more wholistic approach that encompasses education, sterilization, community support programs to prevent abandonment, as well as rescue efforts.|
|It is run by a U.S. board of directors who all spend a significant amount of time in La Paz furthering the important work here.|
