The Baja Western Onion - News For The Left Coast of Baja California Sur

News and Events, Questions and Answers


What's New At The Library - Did you know that the library has quite an extensive collection of cook books? Maybe it's a good time to sit under a tree and plan your fall/winter entertaining. Just to wet your appetite here are a few examples:

Mary Blair's Hors D'oeuvre Cook Book - "A complete guide to hors d'oeuvre cookery and festive menus."
The California Seafood Cook Book "A cook's guide to the fish and shellfish of California, the Pacific coast and beyond."
The New Vegetarian Epicure "Menus with 325 all-new recipes for family and friends."
The library at the Palapa Center is located on Calle Obregon in Todos Santos and is open Mon-Wed and Fri from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. info [-at-] palapasociety.org, www.palapasociety.org, 145-0299

Publisher's Note: Because of the limited community resources available for stray dogs and cats, we thought this information was significant enough to include it in the News and Events section instead of the Pet Corner. We'll keep you updated as we get more information on this facility, and hope our community can find ways to support their efforts. Please consider sponsoring these strays by providing food. -

Hwy 1 from La Paz headed toward Todos Santos [-at-] km 194 just before San Pedro. I took a stray dog there today & got the following information: They DO NOT accept monetary donations, PERIOD. They DO accept donations of dog food. If you take a dog or cat in, please take food for that animal. No food taken in, they feed the animal for 7 days & if the animal is not adopted by day seven & no food is brought in for that specific animal, it is put to sleep.

They will keep an animal for adoption beyond 7 days only if food is provided. It is a nice new bare-bones facility on the left side of the highway on the outskirts of San Pedro, there is a large white sign on a chain link fence that says something like El Centro Municipal de Atencia Canina(CMAC). It's a complex of several small governmental agencies right along the highway, take a right just inside the gate & follow the dirt road about 1/8th mile, the road will curve to the left, just follow it around until it curves to the left again into a paved driveway & that's it!

They do not have a website yet & no phone yet, but there's some information about them on the internet:

http://noticabos.org/2010/05/11/siguen-sacrificando-perros-en-la-perrer\ a-municipal-de-la-paz
BUT the km is wrong - the website says km 19 - it's really km 194. If an animal is adopted, they spay or neuter it at no charge; they give it all the necessary vaccinations before they release it to an adoptive family. There is NO CHARGE to adopt an animal either. Anyone can take a pet in there for free vaccinations, spay or neutering from 8AM - 3 PM Monday - Friday.

Not knowing any of these details when I took the stray in, I headed back towards town & stopped at a feed & seed store & bought two 50 pound bags of adult dog food & one bag of puppy food for the 8 new puppies that someone brought in with no food, that'll give the dog I took in a month more of life hoping for adoption, the puppies at least a month & several other dogs on death row a little longer to hopefully be adopted. Needless to say, I did not go in the back to look at all the little faces!! If you are a dog lover & want to help, please take dog food out whether you can adopt a pet or not. -
