One Dog X Six Years = 67,000 More Dogs - One cat X seven years = 420,000 more cats. Those are real numbers. The only answer is spay and neuter - the ONLY answer.

The fund to assist local Mexican residents of Todos Santos with these surgeries is almost bone dry. We have many more months before we can expect another clinic - which means many more unwanted dogs and cats. Our local vets give a discount but they must be paid for their work. Can you help? Any donation, no matter how small, will help. Tax deductible donations can be made on our web site through PayPal - bajarescue.org and Kate at El Tecolote book store will accept payments in cash or by check. Thank you for helping to make Todos Santos a community with animals who are loved and wanted. -- Amigos de Los Animales de Todos Santos bajakitties [- at -] yahoo.com, www.bajarescue.org, 145-0250

Hey! Where's My Ad??? - Out of consideration for our other readers and paid sponsors, we do not reprint free ads or articles for the same individual, subject, item, event or business more frequently than once every 14 days. If we did not have this policy, each issue of the Baja Western Onion would quickly fill up with repeat information and become less readable and useful to our readers. It would also be unfair to our sponsors who pay for the privilege to be included in each issue. If you resubmit a free ad before our 14-day limit, it will most likely be deleted without notice.

We do recognize that frequent advertising in the Baja Western Onion is a most cost-effective way to sell an item or promote your business. We do offer paid sponsorship opportunities that allow you to advertise in each issue of the Baja Western Onion, and we would be happy to welcome you as a new sponsor with us. Non-profits are entitled to receive a 50% discount off our standard, commercial rates. Your paid ad will be sent out twice a week to over 3,900 4,000 subscribers.
