Perfect Cat Needs Home - This young beauty wandered into our yard a few days ago. Our donkeys love her, but our aged cat will not tolerate her, so she needs a home. If she is lost and you are her owner, please be in touch right away. Otherwise, if you are looking for a cat, this one is top drawer. - Catanya And Robert Saltzman, azoth7 "at" gmail.com, 612-132-8890 or 612-132-9060
Did You Lose Your German Shepard Mix Dog Near Punta Lobos? - About 6 p.m. on April 4, on the dirt road to Punta Lobos (just before the water treatment plant), there was a medium-sized German Shepard "mix" dog (looking lost and confused!) standing in the middle of the road. I have permission (with much cooperation given)to operate a feeding station at the plant for abandoned dogs. While setting out clean water and food, this dog approached - but not too closely. I was unable to determine male/female - but this dog has obviously been well cared for. He/she has beautiful eyes, a fluffy coat with black/tan color mix and a fluffy tail - and was VERY hungry.
It is a huge problem for any strange dog to pass by the houses on the last block before the open road to the beach in an attempt to "go home." There is a large pack of dogs that will intimidate and attack any stray dogs. If you have any idea who's dog this is, please e-mail or call - this dog needs your help! - Cindy Murray, cindyfenix [- at -] yahoo.com, 145-0666, Todos Santos

If he might make a positive addition to your casa, contact us today! - Dylan Patti, dylanlouis [- at -] hotmail.com, Todos Santos
Gorgeous Dog To Good Home - Looking to find a new home for our all-white, purebred akita. 5 yrs. old, still thinks she's a pup! Loving family dog. Definately not a watchdog. Loves people, kids, and other dogs. Raised at Cerritos Beach and loves water. Any offer goes to our 7 yr. old daughter! Thanks! - Jordon Cameron, two40jordi [- at -] hotmail.com, 612-149-5066
Bacero Needs A New Home - The owner of this dog died on the 4 lane by Home Depot 2 weeks ago. I have photos of him and he is beautiful. His name is Bacero and he is about 35 lbs. He is around 1+ year old or so. He needs to be neutered and that can be done at the shelter for free. He has no ticks or flees and is healthy. His color is black and white. Ask me for photos. The ideal place would be with a yard or on a ranch. He needs a new loving family. He is being foster cared for now. Please email or call Sharon Armstrong at 624-145-8073 and Cell, 624-113-3959 in Cabo. He is house trained and very smart. He is available for free. He would make someone a great companion, caboflygirl [- at -] gmail.com, Cabo San Lucas
