Bandidos Still Available - My short story collection "Bandidos" got a generous write-up by Camilla Ford in the latest Gringo Gazette. It's a thoughtful and well-written review, though uncertain about where to find the book, published in 2004. In Todos Santos, the Hotel California Emporio still has a few copies; in San Jose and on-line, Baja Books And Maps, www.bajabooksandmaps.com. - Michael Mercer, barkingdogbooks [- at -] yahoo.com, www.michaelmercer.com/index-old.htm

Annual Spay/Neuter Clinic Starts Tomorrow - The three-day event will start Thursday and continue thru Saturday at La Canada del Diablo, Todos Santos. Four vets from the U.S. along with several vet techs are joining 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. For more information, please contact Angelique at bajakitties [- at -] yahoo.com. Thank you. - Amigos de los Animales de Todos Santos A.C. -

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

Pet Corner (Lost and Found pet articles will run for two weeks)

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


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

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.
