Some sights just break your heart. This is Maya. Another new mom who is trying her best to keep her babies safe on the street. A nice family built a little dog house on the sidewalk to give them some protection from traffic, sun and rain. Our partners, Ingrid and Adriana, saw the families post on fb and rushed to help. Maya appears to have tvt and mange. She was just taken to our vet. The family who made the enclosure will bottle feed the 3 babies and keep them inside their home. The important thing is that this family is off the street. Something about moms trying to care for their babies on the street just hurts my heart. Will update soon. Xoxo

Ojitos (little eyes) was rescued from a life of neglect last September by an independent rescuer. We have no way of knowing if she was born on the street or she was once a family pet who outgrew her usefulness to her “owners”.  After her rescuer treated her transmissible venereal tumor with chemo, it was time to treat her heartworm. However the meds to treat heartworm are not available in Mexico. Without it dogs will die. I was able to order some recently from the US, so I donated it to help Ojitos. It is a series of two injections 24 hours apart. We hope she will make a full recovery and go on to live a beautiful life ♥️ Thank you to our supporters who donate so we can do awesome stuff like this 💗

This tiny little family was living on the street. That means exactly how it sounds. Mama is a street dog and gave birth outside. Only 2 of her babies survived. Luckily a family took them in and brought them to Dra. Claudia to look after. The babies are just over a week old ❤️ We want to support them with food and vaccines. Could you lend us a hand? One month of food is approx $45 and a full course of vaccines is approx $70 usd. PayPal – [email protected] Thank you from the heart ♥️

My dream has always been a huge space for dogs (and cats and goats and cows and chickens and pigs and whoever else needs rescue) 🐮 🐷 🐶🐔 🐐 🐱 Today we looked at a small farm for sale. I haven’t been very active on fb lately because I have been obsessed with finding a place. A place for all the street animals in mexico to live. Yes all of them ♥️ I don’t know what or how or when but I feel like it’s time to do something bigger.

Spaying and neutering isn’t dramatic or exciting. It isn’t a sexy date that makes your head spin. Spaying and neutering is the rescue equivalent of paying bills in your pajamas on a Saturday night. It’s the hard work rescuers, vets and volunteers put into something that isn’t immediately visible. You can’t quantify it. There is no “after” photo. It is the ongoing dedication of animal lovers who pour their hearts and souls into something most will never see. We are grateful to be a part of a community trying go make a better tomorrow for animals.

With a generous donation from our friends at Compassion Sans Borders, we sponsored 30 s/n surgeries in Bacalar last weekend. Little by little we are changing the world.

Xpujil is a small town a few hours from our rescue. We pass it driving back and forth to the US. Like most other towns in Mexico the homeless pet population there is heartbreaking. Huellitas Calakmul Respete Rescate Adopte Protege brings low-cost spay/neuter campaigns to the town as often as they can. Last weekend we donated the cost of 20 surgeries (110 to date). Many pet owners understand the benefits of s/n but struggle to afford it. Unwanted litters of puppies and kittens often end up dumped on the street. We are committed to trying to change that. Thank you Compassion Sans Borders for the grant that allowed us to help support this campaign. We are forever grateful to you and to everyone who supports us on the journey ❤️
