Tips To Stay Cool During Summer - Thought this might be helpful to have for your readers and for those of us that stay here year round:
Thanks Costco ! - Ann and I make weekly trips to Todos Santos to support Hogar del Nino, a home for 24 children, aged 4 to 14. Costco was gracious enough to offer 80 kilos of roasted turkey slices (damn flavourful!) and the children and staff appreciated it. Just like to say they are hounded by Cabo charities and helping Hogar del Nino out is a positive step for equality in charity. Anyone with clothing or dry goods can contact us and we will gladly deliver it to them on our regular trips. - Erwin Lapschies, erwinecosmart [- at -] gmail.com, 624-166-9473

Baja Dogs And The Rain - In the last 2 weeks we had a lot more rain than we are used to at the refuge. Unfortunately, most of the tarps used to protect our outside dogs were destroyed. Please consider making a donation of used (or new) tarps, or any other material you think can be used to provide shade and shelter to the dogs in the corrales. We also need dog food and used crates to evacuate the smaller dogs in case of a bigger storm. We have 54 dogs at the moment and at least half of them would have to be taken out of the refuge during a storm.
And again, like every year, we´ll need temporary homes for the smaller dogs, so if you can help us take care of a puppy or 2 in case of a weather emergency for 3-4 days, please send an email to voluntarios [- at -] bajadogslapaz.org. We´ll provide food and a crate and we understand if the dog has to be kept in the crate most of the time, what´s inportant is to keep them safe and above water. If you live downtown or can´t get things to the refuge (the road isnt in great condition at the moment) you can drop off your donations at "Cafe Papanayo" on Isabel La Católica and 3 buildings before 16 de septiembre from 11 am to 11 pm everyday (We highly recommend their pizzas). Or you can email us and we´ll pick up.
Dhorea is out of town at the moment so, if you want more information regarding this you can email me [- at -] maggiechac [- at -] yahoo.com or call 612 155 8948 (Vet Carlos, refuge number) or 612 152 8433 Maggie. Or Claudia lostdogs [- at -] bajadogsla
