Baja Dogs La Paz is Evolving.
Baja Dogs La Paz, Inc., is retiring and will cease to operate as a registered nonprofit as of September 1, 2023. Our current group of amazing volunteers will continue our mission of providing free sterilization services to underserved communities in La Paz, BCS, Mexico. To support them, please visit:
Since our inception in 2008 Baja Dogs La Paz, Inc., has dedicated its mission to improving the welfare of dogs in La Paz, Baja California Sur, Mexico. For many years, we focused our efforts on helping local rescuers find loving, permanent homes for their foster dogs. While the people involved have changed over the years, we never lost sight of our mission to improve the welfare and situation of La Paz’s most vulnerable pets.
SHIFTING OUR FOCUS TO STERILIZATION
In November of 2021, we shifted our focus from rescue and adoption to providing free sterilization services to underserved communities throughout La Paz, BCS, Mexico. With an estimated 50,000 or more stray dogs throughout La Paz, we recognized that, unless we addressed the problem at the source, those numbers would only continue to grow. Our volunteers on the ground have done a great job these past two years and have sterilized over 3900 dogs! These sterilization campaigns will now go forward as Baja Dogs Sterilizations.
Now, Baja Dogs is going through another transition. Our board members, who have given years of dedication to our cause, are retiring, and we have decided that the time has come to pass the torch to other nonprofit organizations who align with our mission. While Baja Dogs La Paz, Inc., will cease operations this year, the following organizations are registered nonprofits that have demonstrated their commitment to carrying on this important work.

Together, we made a huge difference in the lives of so many wonderful dogs and families. As a 100% volunteer organization, we literally could not have done it without you. THANK YOU!!
