current number of animals without it.
In order to provide rescuers with timely support, FHSTJ instituted a certificate program whereby animals receive immediate veterinary care, including spay and neuter if ready. This encourages more grassroots/neighborhood rescue groups to help the street animals. The goal is rescue, spay/neuter, and then adoption.
FHSTJ undertakes other programs as well. We offer adoptions at various San Diego Petco and Petsmart locations. We present public education programs in Tijuana and make teaching materials available to the city and individual rescuers. We distribute tons of pet food to rescuers as well as individuals attending clinics.

ON A PERSONAL NOTE
As you can see from this report, your continued support has allowed us to serve many more animals than we initially anticipated.
FHSTJ's priority is to keep grassroots rescue groups viable via direct support. It is more efficient than running a shelter which can only keep a few animals at a time. By supporting rescuers and neighborhood groups, more animals are cared for and more mass spay/ neuter clinics take place in areas most in need. The greater

The first event was held on the 28th of October. FHSTJ supported a spay and neuter event organized by volunteers of Por Amor a Tobby which was held in the very poor neighborhood of Divina Providencia. FHSTJ provided 1000 lbs. of pet food for the 80 rescuers and individuals who brought animals and also paid the additional vet costs for those animals which the organization did not have funds. Two dogs near the event were found in the street, starving and ill. FHSTJ immediately provided certificates to rescuers to take them for veterinary care. Rescuers will continue receiving support throughout their rehabilitation. The photo history of one of the rescues follows.
The second event was held on 29 Oct 17 in the neighborhood Viente de Noviembre in Tijuana. It was organized by volunteers
