A Plea For Someone Who Likes Children And Wants Feel Good Project - The Internado of Todos Santos, Alberque Fscol Ar.#3, Prof. Francisco Cota M. needs someone to spend a little time representing their needs to the community. The Internado is a place where children, who live on the ranchos too far to commute to school daily, stay Monday through Friday afternoon and attend the local TS schools. Although the children have families they are often poor and the cost of uniforms and school supplies when having several children in school is a financial strain. The Internado is woefully under funded by the government and the devoted staff is constantly looking for ways to provide better meals and ways to keep the children productively occupied after school.
You may remember the successful drive to provide 84 new beds and mattresses. This is the kind of worthwhile challenge you can enjoy. Also working with Profe. Rudolfo and staff is pure pleasure and the children a joy. Please contact me if you wish to help. - Scotty Mclemore, scottybcs [- at -] hotmail.com, 612 10 05872

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

<<<- 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
