We are Beach Dog Rescue of Costa Maya, Mexico, a small rescue and sanctuary located near Mahahual - 5 hours south of Cancun.
Street dogs and cats were in a sad situation before Covid-19. Now the situation is desperate.
There are no tourists. There are no jobs. Local people who once fed street dogs have no money to even feed themselves. People are abandoning dogs to the street more than ever before. We are seeing an increase in violence against animals.
Pregnant dogs and cats give birth in abandoned lots. Starving animals spend days searching for food and water. When it rains, dogs and cats take shelter under cars.
How we are helping:
On June 20-21 we are sponsoring 50 spay/neuter surgeries for homeless and animals in low-income situations. It is the only solution to homelessness. Total S/N to date: 1,019
We donate dog food, medicine and vet care to low-income owners and to indepdent rescuers.
We sponsor emergency vet care for injured street animals and pay to have them stay in doggy day care until responsible homes are found.
There are no shelters or government resources for animals. The situation for us is overwhelming. Every day someone asks for our help. Our services cover animals in Mahahual, Bacalar and Chetumal. It's a huge area. We can't say no, so we struggle to find ways to pay our bills.
The situation is beyond critical, and we can't do it alone.
Please check out our Facebook page to see all the dogs and cats we've helped. And a ton more PHOTOS too!
We are an IRS registered 501(c)(3) non profit organization.
Love from Mexico,
