News and Events, Questions and Answers


Please Help Keep Unwanted Dogs and Cats Off Our Streets - The annual Spay/Neuter Clinic will take place Nov. 17, 18, and 19 at La Canada del Diablo. Four vets from the U.S. along with several vet techs will join our local vets in a volunteer effort to reduce the overpopulation of dogs and cats in our neighborhoods. This service is provided at greatly reduced or free of charge to those in the local Mexican community who could not afford otherwise to have their animals neutered.

This is a reminder that this special, volunteer Clinic is NOT INTENDED for the general community who can and should pay for their own spay and neuter services, which most likely includes all of the readers of the Baja Western Onion. If you show up with your own pets intending to get free services meant for others less fortunate, you will be turned away. However, if you know of a truly needy Mexican household that cannot afford these sevices then please refer them to this event.

While the vets, both local and U.S. donate their services, there are still many expenses involved. The funds raised at the Fur Ball help offset these costs but there is never quite enough. If you have a shopping trip coming up and could help with a few purchases, the following items are essential:

  1. paper towels
  2. syringes 3 ml
  3. alcohol
  4. trash bags
  5. rubber gloves
And let's not forget those hungry, thirsty vets and volunteers who so appreciate drinking water, sodas and snacks. Please mark the dates on your calendar! For more information or to volunteer please contact Angelique at BajaKitties [ - a t - ] Yahoo.com. Thank you. - Amigos de los Animales de Todos Santos A.C. - bajakitties [ - a t - ] yahoo.com

Lord Of The Wind - Courtesy Baja Pony Express - What started out as a personal rivalry has turned into the richest purse event for windsurfing, kiting and stand up paddle boarding in North America. As the event founders and owners we, Chris Rogers and Dan Holbrook were inspired to make this a world class competition. The International Lord of the Wind Showdown is on for its second year. Our mission is to promote the sports of windsurfing, kiteboarding and stand up paddling while showcasing the beautiful town of Los Barriles, Baja, Mexico.

We will share the profits from this event with the needs of our local school systems. Our goal is to make this an annual event coveted by athletes and spectators from all walks of life. We are proud to offer media exposure in print and televised entities. TELEVISA aired a half hour specials on our 2011 event twice throughout all Mexico. Justin Wolff Productions has produced a one hour special which airs 17 times through Comcast Sports Network. Please see our website for airtimes. The LOW 2012 media distribution strategy is specific and targeted bringing in teams of award winning professional photographers, videographers and writers. Led by Erin Calmes of Keta Films, this coverage will include increased TV production and international print distribution.

The only tri-sport event to be streamed live, Epic Sessions TV worked their cameras diligently and are back for 2012 in HD format with live interviews. We have partnered with the following magazines which continue to run advertisements and editorials in both their print and on line outlets: Kiteworld Magazine which distributes to kite destinations across the entire world, Kiteboarding and Windsurfing, Windsport, and Kitesurfing magazines are found all across North America, and covering Europe our advertisements are found in Kitesurf and Windsurf magazines. We are offering partnership opportunities ranging from title sponsorship to a variety of other donations. Fully detailed sponsorship packets are available for your review at www.lordofthewindbaja.com. Thank you. - Chris Rogers and Dan Holbrook, Founders and owners of Lord of the Wind Showdown, , Facebook www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Lord-of-the-Wind-Showdown/142026572492055, sponsorinfo [ - a t - ] lordofthewindbaja.com, Los Barriles

Kitty Heaven is the only cat refuge in Todos Santos and is funded solely through donation. No proceeds from the Fur Ball are ever allocated to Kitty Heaven.
