Friends of HSTJ sponsored the major part of a spay and neuter event that was held on 11 June 2017 in Downtown Tijuana and in support of Bastet Cat Rescue. The event was a mobile clinic to spay and neuter dogs and cats. It was open to the public with limited income and targeted the pet owners and rescuers in some of Tijuana’s poorest areas: Colonias Zona Norte, Linda Vista, Infonavit, Loma de Porvenir, Guerrero, Herrera and Anexa Herrera. It was a well attended event. See more information below.

The animals were brought to the clinic by local rescuers, individual pet owners and persons who just took in an animal to provide it with a forever home. Three long-time rescuers brought a total of 18 animals recently rescued from the streets of Tijuana

A total of 180 animals were brought to the event sponsored by 
FHSTJ and Bastet Cat Rescue.During this event, FHSTJ was responsible of the spay or neuter of 95 {53%} of the animals: 33 female cats, 24 male cats, 
24 female dogs and 14 male dogs.
 A large number of people from Zona Norte attended the clinic. Several kind hearted individuals from this very poor area of the city take in animals from the street but do not have resources to afford the cost of a spay and neuter. 

This is Malala, a precious 9-month old mix breed who was rescued a few months ago. She was "removed" from a person who had her chained to a wall on a few feet of chain. She had been beaten and was just skin and bones. Look at her now!! (Read on)

This loving couple is giving MALALA a forever home. It is obvious from MALALA’s behavior that she feels the security and love of her new family.

This is CLEO.  He is a young, 1.5 year old mix breed rescue and his story is somewhat unusual. CLEO had the good fortune to be ¨rescued¨ by a young girl who knew that her family could not take care of him. She solicited help, looking for someone who could give CLEO a forever home rather than abandon him in a vacant lot or public square as many do when they do not have resources to care for unwanted kittens or puppies. The young person’s responsible act gives us encouragement. It is an example of a cultural change that FHSTJ has been promoting since its inception. CLEO was accepted and then adopted by the responsible and caring person who is holding him so lovingly. The proud look on CLEO’s pet parent says it all.

May 2017 Itchy Scratchy Clinic

Your Donations At Work

We are happy to report that we held a major parasite & mange treatment event on May 27th, 2017, in Colonia Nueva Aurora, one of the poorest colonias here in Tijuana. Most of the animals brought to the event had never even had any prior veterinary care.
It is important to use these events to educate the public and we try to capture the attention of young people, hoping to instill a sense of responsibility for pet ownership 
as well as compassion for the street animals.

We're sure you'll agree that to share our limited resources with these rescued street animals is a noble thing. We just wish we could help more people take in the more than 7000 animals still roaming the streets in Tijuana.

We treated 6 cats & 139 dogs at this clinic.  That makes a total of 1,321 animals so far this year, that we were able to rid of pain and suffering because of mange, fleas, ticks, etc.

So, THANK YOU goes to our beloved donors!

Thank you for making all of this possible!

This is Elote...
A few months ago, ELOTE was found with two other 2-month-old  puppies in a cemetery of the neighborhood of Nueva Aurora.  Unfortunately it is a practice in many areas of this city to abandon unwanted kittens and puppies in a common community local and leave them to fend for themselves among the local population.  Most live a life of misery. The fortunate ones are those like ELOTE and his two sisters CANICA and PALETA. ELOTE was adopted by Gisela and the other two by Gisela's mother in Tecate. ELOTE has his forever home with Gisela and is a guardian and companion for her and her children. ELOTE is now 7 months old. Gisela is waiting for the next spay & neuter clinic to have ELOTE neutered. FHSTJ supports both the street Itchy-Scratchy clinics and spay and neuter clinics. ELOTE was treated at the May 27, 2017 Itchy-Scratchy event in Nueva Aurora along with 139 dog and 6 cats that were treated for parasites and mange. This event also served as a public education opportunity where people were given information about pet care and the need for spay and neuter.



We have had the opportunity to distribute your donations in some wonderful ways in the month of June.  
It has truly been a busy month!
It started out with a Spay & Neuter Clinic in 
Colonia Flores Magon.
We were able to Spay & Neuter 19 dogs & 21 cats!
Here are just a few of the photos from the site:
