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

News and Events, Questions and Answers


Please Help Reduce The Number Of Unwanted Dogs And Cats Todos Santos - All who live in Todos Santos have, at one time or another, witnessed unwanted dogs and cats roaming the streets. No matter whether you are an animal lover or not, we all agree that we need to keep this unwanted and unloved population to a minimum. And here is an opportunity to help. There will be a spay and neuter clinic at La Canada del Diablo on November 11, 12 and 13 and your help is needed. If you are not comfortable being with the dogs and cats, you could prepare lunch for the many volunteers, including the vets who donate their time and air fare to come here. There is always a lot of laundry to be done, could you do a couple of loads of wash? Flyers need to be distributed throughout our community. Or perhaps you could you come to the clinic for a few hours and lend a hand to these incredible vets who give us this gift. Please call Angelique at 145-0250 or Maryann at 145-0791 to offer your help. - , bajakitties [ -at- ] yahoo.com, 145-0250
