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
