Remember Gober… he was dragging his back legs (presumably hit by a car)… well he is in a foster home with his rescuers now. With physical therapy he is starting to walk again!!! We don’t have him in our care, but we are super grateful to have helped him on his journey (via a hospital stay / evalution w/ specialist). xoxoxoox
Thinking of getting an apartment close to vets office in chetumal 🤔 Kika had a follow up yesterday. Her platelets are up to 72 from ZERO 🙌 We we’re worried about Frida’s lack of energy, but her blood came back pretty normal. She may just be a mellow kid… so… awesome! We did learn that her tail is broken. It has never wagged. The vet checked it out and she has no feeling in it at all. Probably the result of getting run over 😫 Thinking of them on the street just kills me. But they are safe now 💛
Two weeks, 2 vet visits, 6 new cases of ehrlichia for a total of 8, one new case of heartworm for a total of 2, an ear infection, some warts & 2 spay surgeries requiring hospitalization. Lots and lots of blood work. We may have also taken in another dog named Shadow 🤷♀️ These kids are basically existing on antibiotics and vitamin gel. If you’d like to support us as we drown in vet bills 😆

Mimi checking in to show off her Canadian winter wear ❤️ This is the kind of life every dog deserves. We are so grateful to all of our supporters. Because of you Mimi did not become a statistic on the street. Instead she is loved beyond measure by her new family. Congrats baby girl!!!!!!
This is a pic from a vacation we took to Costa Maya a few years before we moved here. We rented a remote off-grid house, and this dog hung out with us for the whole week. On our last day I left a big bag of food with the caretakers of the property. They told me it wasn’t their dog and seemed super confused about why someone would bother to feed a dog. Except for a few fishing camps there were no houses around for miles.
In that moment I realized that dogs in this part of the world were often very much on their own. I left Mexico with a knot in my stomach that I couldn’t shake. I don’t know what happened to this sweet animal but I am sure she wasn’t long for this world. These dogs deserved better.
The work we do here is in honor of every homeless dog we’ve ever come across. We can’t save them all, so we’ve made it our mission to help prevent the suffering of countless pups through our spay/neuter programs.
Last weekend we sponsored s/n surgeries for 18 dogs. Three of those surgeries were in Nicholas Bravo (the small town where we found Nico) and 15 were in Bacalar.
2019 has been an incredible year. We have learned so much. We have laughed at our dogs and at our lives. We have cried the happiest and saddest tears possible. Thank you to each and every one of our supporters for your endless devotion to animal welfare. We exist because of your kindness ❤️
Total dogs off the street and in homes: 72
Total dogs living w/ us: 18
Total s/n to date: 888 and counting…
Over the last couple days Nicholas really struggled. Matteo took him to the vet. But his pain couldn’t be managed. Matteo spoiled him with a last meal of chicken nuggets and ice cream and he left this world peacefully tonight.
Nicholas was rescued from the streets by Heather of Costa Maya Beach Dog Rescue. He had suffered a horrific injury two months before. He was left without the use of his back legs and dragged himself over concrete tearing up his legs. She got him the vetting he needed and then fostered him.
Nico moved to Playa del Carmen recently to live with Matteo. We hoped that Matteo could work his magic and help Nico walk again. Sadly his body had suffered too much damage to recover.
He didn’t care he couldn’t walk anymore because he knew he would never be abused again. He had dog friends. He had a soft bed to lie on. He was safe. Most importantly, Nicholas knew love until the end.
Thank you to everyone who supported Nicholas and loved him from afar. There will be a bright star shining in the sky tonight.

Thank you to Pilar Lozano, Ingrid Angelina Lopez & Adriana Arcos Arcos for rushing to find him on the street after we saw the facebook post of a struggling dog. To Medicalvetcenter Hospital De Especialidades Veterinarias for the loving attention and care you provided. To Adasa de Moreset for giving Nico a loving temporary home. To every single person who supported us – your kindness will always be remembered. I believe with my whole heart that he knew how much he was loved ❤️
This senior Boxer was dumped at the fire station in Mahahual. He was found tied up out back. Our vet has already been there to check him out. He has an old leg injury but otherwise seems ok. The firemen are happy to take care of him but they need our help with food. Including this guy they are now caring for 3 rescued dogs. Help us to support them ♥️
