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.
