YOUR DONATIONS AT WORK

The neighborhood rescue efforts of Enrique and Beatriz

For years, Enrique & Beatriz have been doing street rescues in their neighborhood in the hills above the colonia of la Gloria in the South of Tijuana—an extremely poor area.  We have done stories on them in the past, so we thought you would enjoy this update.

These loving people , who live very modestly , share their home and space with street rescues, many of whom are not candidates for adoption. This is due to these animals having lived on the streets and among packs for so long that they do not adjust well to living without them. Enrique, Beatriz and their children provide a home for these dogs that would otherwise have to remain on the streets, hungry, diseased and fearful.

FHSTJ has been supplying food and veterinary care for this neighborhood rescue operation since 2008. Once again, we are happy to be able to share an update. Every month we deliver several hundred pounds of dog food to feed the entire group of current rescues which averages a daily census of 25. FHSTJ also provides veterinary care and spay and neuter services. 

As you can see , everyone comes to the food shed when the monthly food delivery arrives. It is obvious that these animals and the children share a strong bond
