  • Description


    Hi and Hola ! we are a non-profit Animal Welfare foundation operating in Guerrero, Mexico.

    Our life revolves around our rescues and community projects .

    We are looking for active fit people who want to do something special and worthwhile.

    We rescue animals that have been abused, neglected, abandoned and give them safety, love and comfort in our fenced open air sanctuary, while looking for permanent homes.

    We take care of dogs , cats, occasionally horses. We have over 100 animals in our care .

    We organize free and low cost mass spay and neuter clinics, night teams set traps to catch and spay and neuter feral and street cats, we go to local schools with classes on animal welfare , summer camps for children, and education for adults.
