A Word from our Board:Rescatistas-de-La-Paz

2015 was a year of change. Not a day goes by that we aren’t thankful for the tremendous support we receive from our local La Paz community and our donors from the US and Canada. Every donor, every adopter and every volunteer share the same goal – to give animals of B.C.S. a chance to not only survive, but live a happy, healthy life. The funds we receive through your generous support goes:

  • To help our adopters by facilitating the transport of healthy dogs to their forever home.
  • To address the plight of animals in the La Paz area we promote cultural change that increase animal rights in Baja Sur.
  • To reduce the number of unwanted puppies we partner local with organizations who conduct spay and neuter programs.
  • To support the local rescuers with medical, food and transportation costs
    All in our common quest to save the animals.

In 2015 we had the opportunity to partner with Jeff and Diana Hall on their Save the Baja34 project. Their efforts involved the rescue and placement of over 70 dogs and cats from a local beach. Enabling others to create impact in Baja California Sur is very important to us at Baja Dogs La Paz. We were honored to assist in the Baja34 rescue mission.

Moving into 2016, we adjusted our focus. The ever changing landscape of dog rescue requires us to adapt so we continue to represent our donors and adopt the most effective way to save animals. Our recent communications, spoke to our focus on supporting local fosters, facilitating adoptions both locally and in the US and Canada and lastly partnering with local organizations to conduct monthly Spay & Neuter community clinics.
