Baja Dogs La Paz Mutt Strut

The Baja Dogs La Paz First Annual Mutt Strut was a huge success! We would like to thank all of those who supported us. Many in the community donated raffle and silent auction items and the event was attended by a sold out crowd of over 120 people. We raised just over $3,700 USD or $70,000 MXN. This covers approximately 2 months of our expenses which includes food, clinic, and training and many other costs for the dogs up for adoption. Here are some of the highlights in pictures and video of the event.
