    Mascotas de La Paz

Mascotas de La Paz is a newly formed, non-profit and volunteer organization composed of Mexicans and Americans living in La Paz, Baja California Sur, Mexico. The following information is taken from the front page of the Mascotas website at

"Our purpose is to reduce the number of stray dogs and cats in the City of La Paz. We want to help these animals by finding them good homes, providing veterinary services, and educating the community on proper animal care. We want to spay and neuter as many animals as possible in La Paz, and also provide injections for parvovirus (disease of the intestine), distemper, and worms. Free rabies vaccinations are provided by the government. Several veterinarians are part of the organization and will be donating their services. More are needed.

We also need your help in the form of donations. Donations will go for pet food, medicine, boarding stray animals, and other materials related to the cost of spaying and neutering. If you would like to help, please send checks or money orders to:

Mascotas de la Paz
c/o K. M. Mitton,
2314 Carriage Circle,
Oceanside, CA 92056-3604.

If you would like to contact us directly, please email us at

Poochas Gracias."
