The Los Cabos region of Mexico has the fastest-growing population in the country, but it has no municipal shelters or animal control, resulting in thousands of forgotten street dogs and cats.
These poor animals are at the mercy of sick people who carry out horrific abuse – the shelter has dealt with cats burned alive… dogs attacked with machetes, buried alive, and forced into dogfighting… ‘sorcery’ with animal parts; animals being burned with hot water, and (stomach-churningly) even zoophilia (if you don’t know what that is, believe us, it’s horrible!).
One shelter is saving these horrifically abused animals.
But they desperately need our help!
The Los Cabos Humane Society (LCHS) faces situations like this every day. One of the most critical needs is sterilization so that as many animals as possible can be spared this life of neglect at best, and untold torture at worst.
We desperately need to help spay and neuter as many animals as possible in Los Cabos. Please, today, will you help us to spare the animals from lives of agony and abuse?
Armando Martinez has run LCHS since 2018 and miraculously transformed it from a ‘High Kill’ to a ‘No Kill’ shelter. Before 2018, a dog with an eye infection, for example, would have been euthanized. Today, LCHS’ focus is to reduce animal overpopulation through ongoing spay and neuter campaigns and to educate local people on how to care for their animals.
The shelter receives NO government funding, and the pandemic has severely impacted their donations. We MUST help them!
During the past year, because of COVID, more and more people have been dumping their animals outside LCHS’ doors - at the moment, they get a dog a day. The shelter takes them in because if they do not, the poor creatures might wind up being tortured and killed, yet donations have plummeted by 75%. These good people are struggling to feed and find medicine to treat the sick and injured animals who arrive needing help every single day.
To give you an idea, the essential medical supplies like gloves, needles, scalpels and gauze cost more than $1,000 (£740) per month. If we can raise $6,000 (£4,400), we can start the essential spay and neuter program and prevent the dogs of Los Cabos from being born into a life of hell.
The pandemic has all but obliterated the shelter's income, but with your help, they can continue their essential work.
We would love to be able to give Armando and his team even more. They are incredibly passionate and caring people who do their very best for animals rescued from unspeakable torment. They always put the animals’ health and welfare first.
Thank you. We value your friendship and support and would be powerless to make a difference for animals without your help. The animals of Los Cabos are depending on you.
For the animals,
Brian and Gloria Davies (and Max and Flora!)
