News and Events, Questions and Answers

All Okay In Your Barrio? - Things going the way you would like? Are you having lack of water issues? Is garbage pick up reliable or available at all? Are your neighbors respecting local zoning ordinances? Is there a general sense of respect for the environment? Do you feel safe and secure with our local fire and police protection? How is the condition of the roads in your neighborhood?

We all felt like we found paradise coming to live in Todos Santos. But our community continues to grow and we need help in order to maintain its beauty and integrity. How can we get this help, and what can we do to help ourselves?

It is time to come together as a community and see what we can accomplish. Los Colonos Homeowners Association, a community organization, is an established, legally-recognized Mexican non-profit corporation. But we need you the members to give it strength. We need to hear from you.

Please visit our web site www.LCHOA.mx to learn more or write to secretary [- at -] lchoa.mx. - LCHOA

Glasses Need Transporting - Need help getting a new pair of prescription sunglasses to Pescadero. I can have them mailed to you in the U.S. if you are coming to Todos Santos or Pescardero in the near future. If you can help, please give me a call at 612-147-0434 - Sandy, sandytelgren [- at -] yahoo.com, 612-147-0434, Pescadero

Release of Turtle Info Sought - Heard there is some info of where, when and how of the releasing of turtles in our area of Todos Santos right now. I personally can't find any info. If you know of anything/specifics, please emails me at tamigirltruck [- at -] hotmail.com as we would love to be apart of this. Thank you so much - Tamara, tamigirltruck [- at -] hotmail.com
Editor's note: The recent Onion article listed a website, www.todostortugueros.org, to visit for maps and directions. Perhaps it will contain any other information you may need.

Need Land For Animal Sanctuary - We would like to establish a farm animal sanctuary to rescue several animals being held in deplorable conditions in Pescadero. In order to do this, we first need a piece of land nearby where these animals can be taken. Any unused property ~1/3 acre and up in Pescadero would be ideal.
  • Do you have land that you are not planning to use for a couple of years? Maybe 2 or 3?
  • Would you be willing to let us care for some animals there?
If your property is already fenced, that would be excellent, otherwise, we will make that improvement ourselves. By lending your property, you will enable us to move quickly forward with our planned rescue. We hope not only to create a sanctuary to rescue farm animals being abused, but eventually to open up the sanctuary to the public for educational purposes, a place where people can come and meet the animals and get to know them, not as commodities but as the special creatures they really are.

Eventually, we hope to build a kiosk to prepare and sell vegan hot dogs, hamburgers, ensaladas, soy and coconut milk ice creams and sodas at the same location so that when tourists come to meet the animals, they can also enjoy a cruelty free picnic. (Who wants to eat pork sausage while bonding with a pig?)

Any revenue we obtain will pay for food and water for the animals and the other expenses of running the sanctuary. We will start small: A journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step. ... But ultimately become an important part of the cultural, tourist and educational offerings of the area. If you can help with land or want to get involved in other ways, please contact me. - Cheryl Hugle, allinharmony [- at -] gmail.com, allinharmony.org, Todos Santos

Please Help Me - My precious dog disappeared from my home in Canada Honda (north/west of Last Tunas) She was last seen on Monday, Oct. 31. She ran away with my other dog who has since been found in la Poza. Maya is a female, cafe-colored, medium size Todos Santos ranch dog, approximately 20 kilos with a short tail, a collar but no tag. $50 U.S. reward for her return. - Olivia Sandoval, oliviasandovalojeda [- at -] yahoo.com.mx, , 612-161-6151

Sweetheart Cat Needs Home - Lovable, affectionate, friendly and well mannered. This "street cat" has been spayed, is young but not too, probably around a year old. She's been given flea treatment, fed well for a few weeks and in good shape now. But we are leaving for the states at the end of November and she needs to find a permanent home. - Colleen Ray, 805-712-1664, Todos Santos

Found Puppy - I found a small, tan, female puppy with a green collar Saturday afternoon in front of Caffe Todos Santos. She seems to be 2-4 months old perhaps, very clean, and very healthy. I assumed her owner was close by but nobody knew anything about her. We later believed she may have gone missing the night prior because our dogs were barking at a small animal that night. She's being taken care of at the Old Charles Stewart home (Obregon & Centenario, next to Caffe Todos Santos) if the owner happens to find this ad. - Janine Wall, coneyislandgreen [- at -] yahoo.com, 612-152-4499, Todos Santos

Dogs and Cabo Airport - Courtesy Baja Pony Express - Just returned with our dog and discovered a new procedure upon arrival regarding dogs. You must take your dog to the Agricultural office, show the official the Original rabies and health certificate and have the dog inspected. They give you two inspection certificates with official stamps. You need one stamped certificate to leave with the dog if you plan to return by air to the US. Our delay getting out of the airport: one hour! - Bob And Karen Porter

Can You Adopt Alex's Dog? - The late Alejandro "Alex" Manjarrez Zuniga leaves behind a beautiful 2-year-old male pointer-mix. Very well behaved, street wise and great with kids. Those interested please contact. - Rick Plaia, rickplaia [- at -] hotmail.com, 612-178-0000, Todos Santos
