- a substantial increase in the number of spays/neuters and adoptions;
- a breakthrough in legal action against animal cruelty;
- the establishment of a fixed site clinic for rescuers working in the Tijuana area;
- an expansion of the use of public, family community centers throughout the Tijuana area where we set up monthly mobile spay/neuter clinics;
- the expansion of neighbor sites for the Itchy-Scratchy parasite and mange control clinics; and
- the establishment of an animal advocate legal fund to promote the enforcement of those city regulations that we fought so hard to establish.
performed 803 low cost and free spay/neuter surgeries; provided free services for 3396 pets of the poor and street animals by treating them for parasites, mange and malnutrition; supported individual rescuers having a collective daily census of 200 animals with free food, basic medication and spay/neuter surgeries; distributed 75,000 pounds of pet food at clinics and among rescuers and facilitated 107 pet adoptions in Mexico. FHSTJ placed 43 hardcore rescues in permanent homes in the San Diego area. FHSTJ continues to provide support for HSTJ’s role as a recognized organization advocating the enforcement of city animal welfare regulations through its work with the city and state government to reform dog pound conditions and the prohibition of minors at bull fights . This was accomplished with a corps of 40 volunteers who supplement the corps of 32 Mexican volunteers. These programs continue to benefit communities on both sides of the American and Mexican border through efforts to control animal disease and animal overpopulation.”Animal Advocate Legal Fund
Fixed Site Clinic
We continue to encourage individual rescuers to form rescue groups like those that exist in our sister city of San Diego.
On behalf of the animals, I extend a sincere THANK YOU.
