Adorable Kittens Seek Loving Home(s) - We were abandoned before our eyes were open (around 10 days) and a big brown dog found us. She is our rescue dog and her owner has given us a foster home to raise us up to be charming kittens. He spends lots of time with us and we love all the affection and give it right back. We are about 8 weeks old now and ready for our permanent homes! We are litter trained. We've had our first check-up at the vets and he proclaimed us healthy and ready for adoption. Won't you please adopt me or one of my sisters? Give Jaime a call or write Deborah an email if you’d like to meet us! That would be purrrrrrrrrrrfectly wonderful! - Jaime Wood, deborahhorn [-a t-] hotmail.com, 612-132-8893, Todos Santos

Dog Urgently Needs Your Help. - A good-tempered, sweet dog needs temporary immediate assistance and adoption. Present needs: A contained enclosure to manage shampoo bath every 3 days for 2 weeks, Flea/tick preventive med application, renew rabies shot. She has had care for over a year to bring her to good health but she can no longer remain on our commercial property. If no one steps forward to assistance by June 30, I have no choice but the unspeakable. - Lady, macnmoli [-a t-] yahoo.com, 612-118-3423, Pescadero
Lost Dog Seen At La Posa - A small white/cream-colored dog was seen running and hiding in the tall rushes at the north end of La Posa lagoon. It is similar to a poodle, with long floppy ears, wearing a pink and black dog-dress. Do you know of anyone who dresses their dog like that? Thanks - Serena S, brentserena [-a t-] gmail.com, 612-132-8913
Take Me! - I have a female dachshund with all her shots and I have her paper work. I really love her but I am having a baby this month; I can't take the risk of tripping over her and hurting my baby. Please, if you know of anybody who wants her, let me know. Thank you. - Taylor Daniels, taylor210210 [-a t-] hotmail.com, 612-104-8209
Beautiful Dog Needs Home - We fostered a female dog named Onyx since she was 8 weeks old. She has been at a trainer for 3 weeks. She has a lot of energy and really needs a lot of property to run on. She has been fixed, has all her shots, weighs 45 lbs. and is absolutely beautiful. Unfortunately, we couldn't foster her any more and she is at the Los Cabos Humane Society. You can contact Everesto at the shelter for more information. - Everesto, evaristoah [-a t-] hotmail.com, www.loscaboshumanesociety.com, 624-129-8346, Cabo San Lucas

"Good Dog" Needs A Ride Home To Rosarito From Guerrero Negro - Hola, It is a long story on how our dog (Einstein, he was named that from the shelter/rescue group) is still in Guerrero Negro after our car broke down 60 miles north of there almost four weeks ago. Actually, the story has a way in which the 'universe' can show a sense of humor on what one plans to do. LOL anyway - the car is still not fixed, however, it was towed to Rosarito and we are looking for the right and perfect motor (Subaru 2.5 liter engine) - if you know of one, please let me know.
