Owners Jeff and Diana Hall of Camp Bow Wow Doggy Day Camp in Burnsville, Minnesota were enjoying some well deserved time off from their business in La Paz, Mexico when they came upon a pack of 27 dogs and 7 cats all living together homeless on the beach. While most vacationers would have walked right by them, this pair sacrificed their vacation to assure the pets had proper care.
On the beach, the dogs and cats were visibly malnourished, the majority of their food coming from a homeless man that shared all the food he could spare with the pack. When the Hall's discovered the animals, they opened a GoFundMe account and teamed up with local shelters, K9 Rancho Del Perro and Baja Dogs La Paz, to create the brand new Baja 34 Rescue Project.
The aim of this rescue project is to raise money for the veterinary care that these animals need. Once they are healthy again, they will be sent to Minnesota where the Hall's will adopt them out to loving homes. This is not just limited to the pets that live on the beach, but aims to do the same with animals in local shelters in the area as well. Mexico has an estimated of 10,000 stray dogs alone with shelters at capacity, by finding good homes for these animals, it helps to free up the funds and space to help others strays in need.
This is certain to be a happy ending to these pets in need. Jeff and Diana Hall hope that their story will inspire other people who see pets in need to take the initiative. Not only have they saved the lives of a handful of loving strays, but they have made on heck of a good vacation story for themselves.
