Great News For Hogar Del Niño Donations! - We've had many requests in the past for an easy way to make donations to Hogar del Niño from the US and for the ability to get a US tax deduction for donations. Thanks to the excellent work of a new community supporter, we now have the ability to do both. For instructions on how to make donations in this manner contact Nancy Serfas at Nancyserfas [- at -] aol.com or Nancy Naigle at nnaigle [- at -] att.net, and we'll provide the details. The summer months have been very lean for the Hogar, and food supplies are very low. An influx of donations soon will be of great help! - Nancy Naigle

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
