News and Events, Questions and Answers

Annual Spay/Neuter Clinic Next Week - Please help keep unwanted dogs and cats off our streets. The three-day event will take place this coming Thursday, Nov. 17 thru Saturday, Nov. 19 at La Canada del Diablo, Todos Santos. 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 community who could not otherwise afford 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 in your Chevy Surburban 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 household that cannot afford these sevices then please refer or even help transport 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: Paper Towels, 3 Ml Syringes, Alcohol, Trash Bags, Rubber Gloves. And let's not forget those hungry, thirsty vets who volunteers and so appreciate drinking water, sodas and snacks. For more information or to volunteer please contact Angelique at bajakitties [- at -] yahoo.com. Thank you. - Amigos de los Animales de Todos Santos A.C. -

The New Todos Santos Philosophical Society - Lectures, discussions and field trips pertaining to natural science and ecology of this part of the world. The first meeting will be an overview of the aquifer and water systems of the Todos Santos river valley on Wednesday, Nov. 16, at 7 p.m. at Casa Bentley - Calle Pilar, around the corner from La Arca. On the first field trip we will visit the pumping system at Punto Lobos and various reserviour sites. Meet at Casa Bentley on Sunday, Nov. 20, at 1:30 p.m. - Eileen Brophy, eileen_brophy [- at -] yahoo.com, 612- 143-9245

"The Play's The Thing" - Hamlet, Act 2, Scene 2: "Thespian" George has recently moved to Todos Santos. For many years he worked in all the major theaters throughout Canada, including the Shaw Festival. and the best part is that he has expressed a willingness to bring together a few fellow actors - or would-be actors - to form an ensemble giving the community a taste of legitimate theater. To get started he needs to hear from any of you who would like to participate. (Think Shakespeare, Noel Coward, George Bernard Shaw or ???) The vision is of a small troupe to put on one or two one-act plays that could perhaps raise a little money to help care for the homeless dogs of Punto Lobos while having a real theater experience. If you are interested, email George at gefrda [- at -] yahoo.ca.

Looking For Michael and Carol Selby - We are staying at the Hacienda del Mar in Cabo del Sol. You can contact us through El Tecolote 145-0295 and they can put us in touch with each other. - Warren Steiner, wasteiner [- at -] gmail.com, 145-0295, Todos Santos

Help Needed to Bring Down Door - I need a small freezer door, 19"x9"x2" and about 1lb, for my trailer in Pescadero. Part is in Chino, CA, and can be shipped to you anywhere in the USA. If you are driving down in the next week or two and can bring it down, the beer or whatever is on me. I'll be happy to pick up the door anywhere from La Paz south. - Lars, uptheblackcreek(at)yahoo.com, 612-153-seven six zero three, Pescadero

PadrinoProject.com - Please join us at PadrinoProject.com to support the Hogar del Nino (children's home) located in Todos Santos near the Pemex on the road to La Paz. Children ages 5-14 come to the home through DIF but receive NO support from the local, state, or federal government. There are currently 22-25 kids living with an all volunteer staff. They are completely dependant on your generosity and they desperately need your support! - nancyserfas [- at -] aol.com, Todos Santos

Attention All Bakers! - I am looking for bakers to donate baked goods to the bake sale at the 5th Annual Palapa Society Tiangus to be held on Satuday, Nov. 26, at the Ejido building across from Lizarraga. Profits from your donations benefit the BECA (educational scholarship) program. Donations should be dropped off between 9:30 and 10 a.m. If you want to drop them off the day before, you can do so at my house or I can pick them up. - nancyserfas [- at -] aol.com

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

South Dakota Plates - Regarding importing or changing plates on a vehicle for the folks who live here, I received a full explanation and will pass on the website address on to those interested (see below). It seems that Canadians can get S. Dakota plates after all and the same business also supplies a USA address and pertinent necesities. Here is the info: southdakotalicenseplates.com. The phone numbers are: Cabo, 624-129-9237; and in the U.S., 845-790-1110. I do not know the cost. - Gillian Herbert, gillyndolly [- at -] hotmail.com, 612-045-0359

Let us know if you find or place your pet so we can remove your ad -

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.

Our delay getting out of the airport: one hour! - Bob and Karen Porter
