Health Insurance Options Available To Non-mexican Citizens - If you are a non-Mexican interested or concerned about the possibility of needing health care in or around the Todos Santos area, I have written an article about my positive experience with the St. Luke’s Medical Clinic located in Todos Santos.

Not only did they save my husband’s life but Mario educated me on the options that non-citizens have for health insurance while visiting or residing here. He has graciously offered to host an educational evening for anyone who would like to know more about these options and I am hosting the event in order to spread the word to those in need.

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 -

Do You Know Her? - Jan. 10 this lovely female Shepard came into our yard (right by the road leading to La Poza) hoping for a kind human touch and an invitation to dinner. She's in excellent condition, very well-behaved and obedient - learning immediately to give our cat her space. She is very smart and responds immediately to any kindness! She had an extremely heavy clip on her weathered collar indicating that she may have been tied - possibly over an extended period as her collar shows much stress and is cut away underneath this clip - obviously from straining to get free. I cannot keep this dog even for one more week. If she is yours - claim her now - or if you would like to consider this beautiful girl as your own faithful companion - the time is NOW. Call Linda Stobbe at 145-0377. - Linda Stobbe, lsstobbe [- at -] yahoo.com, 145-0377, Todos Santos

<<<- Lost Dog "Chaco" Reward! - Lost my dog at San Pedrito beach. I'm at the north end of beach white house on bluff, "Osprey House". My dog Chaco ran off Tuesday morning, if you have seen him, please contact. Short hair, black back, brown legs, pointed ears, like a little shepherd. Medium weight,about 30lbs. Red collar with tags. If you have any information call Russell 612-168-6810 - Russell Sutter, bajaosprey [- at -] gmail.com, www.bajaosprey.com, 612-168-6810, Pescadero

Stray Puppy Needs Good Home ->>> - I am a stray that was rescued in La Paz at a Christmas Eve party, I am extremely skinny and would like to find a good home. The nice girl that rescued me is willing to foster me for a while and have me fixed as soon as I gain a bit of weight, but I will need a good home because it is a little crowded at her house and just not possible for me to stay here forever. - Eva Torres, eva_lepine [- at -] hotmail.com, 612-108-8447, La Paz

Stray Dog Needs Ride To Cabo Humane Society - During the fireworks a dog showed up at my casa. A brindle pit bull, skinny, scared, humble. I can't keep him and have no way to take him to Cabo to the Humane Society. Can you help? I live in Todos Santos, in the otro lado. 612-118-7393 - Anne Marie Maurier, l.maurier [- at -] yahoo.com, 612-118-7393

<<<- Help Us Find a Home for This Little Guy - Someone left us this little "gift in the night" We cannot keep him. We have tried the usual refuge places to no avail. Our only alternative is to put him to sleep. He is litter box trained and has been treated for fleas. He is very well-behaved and is on the rebound from near starvation. Please help him. We live in Todos Santos in the Las Brisas Barrio. - Leo, 612-103-9576

Looking For A Better Life - We Ran Away From Home - Hi, Our names are Gus & Scout and we're brothers. We left home because there were 11 of us and we just didn't all get along very well. And, a dog had recently killed one of our brothers and later attacked our sister. It was getting scary.

We're 18 months old, fixed, and can be friendly. I have gray and black stripes with white feet and am big for my age. Gus is totally black, green eyes, and average size. Our owners miss us a lot and just want people in Pescadero (just north of the Tequila Factory by the beach) or there about -- to know that we're cool cats and could use a little love and food if you see us hanging around. We're outdoor cats and can fend for ourselves but... Thanks for reading about us and please be nice to us if we stop by for a visit :-) - Bonnie, bajapeacewear [- at -] hotmail.com, Pescadero

Home For The Holidays? ->>> - Sweet Lobo was brought from Punto Lobos to the spay and neuter clinic, where everyone fell in love with him.

Lobo has house manners, has been neutered, vaccinated and with his pedicure and bubble bath he is a beautiful dog ready for his forever home. To make Lobo's holiday wish for a home come true, please contact - Connie Mical, conan [- at -] frontiernet.net, 178-0081, Todos Santos

Lost Golden Retriever - Lost GR in North Pescadero area 3 weeks ago. Was sick with weepy eyes and caretakers let her go. Am home now and heartbroken. If you have seen her(Layla), please call Barbara Chick at 612-154- 5983. Reward - Barbara Chick, 612-154-5983

<<<- Have You Seen Leyla?? - Attention Pescadero Residents - Please help! I've just returned from a trip to find out that my beautiful (very blonde!) "golden retriever" mix, "Leyla" - my faithful companion for more than three years - "went missing" around the 10th of December. The people that I'd paid to care for her are clueless - and I am truly beyond heartsick! She left from my yard in north Pescadero - right by the Huerta Huizapol - a few blocks (on the right-hand side) before the Pemex if you're coming in from Todos Santos. I'm offering a generous reward for your help in returning Leyla to her home! She's very people-friendly and loves car rides. Please call me if you have any information and can help. - Barbara Chick, 044-612-154-5983, Pescadero
