WHAT WE DO
🐾 We rescue suffering, hurt, abused and dying animals in rural Guerrero in Barra de Potosi and villages around , south of Zihuatanejo and north of Petatlan . We rehabilitate them and give them home in our shelter until the perfect permanent home is found. If no permanent home is found , we care for them for life. We adopt only to family and home we either meet personally or with great references from our Adopters, Supporters or Guaradian Angels.
🐾 We educate the public, children and adults in rural Guerrero Mexico about animal care.
- we show it’s GREAT to love your pets
- we explain it’s NOBLE to care for stray animals
- we teach how to feed and bathe and why to vaccinate and treat for fleas
- we teach what spay and neuter is and remind to bring pets and all stray animals to our Spay and Neuter clinics
- we send a message that abuse and cruelty and violence are not acceptable, neither by people, nor by God, nor by government, it’s a CRIME and will be punished by Law
🐾 We organize low cost and free Mass Spay and Neuter clinics and sterilize hundreds of dogs and cats every year. Over 3000 animals were sterilized during our clinics !
