Beach Dog Rescue of Costa Maya Mexico is an IRS-registered 501(c)(3) public charity (Federal Tax ID: 83-1586043) that rescues and rehabilitates stray dogs in Costa Maya, México and the town of Mahahual.
A few years ago, a beach dog named Pinto wandered into my yard looking for food. His bones were sticking out, and he had a sadness about him that I will never forget. I cried. A lot. He was no one's dog.
I spent the next few weeks feeding him and nursing him back to health. Since I wasn't yet living here full-time, I left food and medicine with a local couple who promised to take care of him. When I returned two months later, I learned that he had died.
I knew from the moment I met Pinto that I would start a rescue to help save others from the same horrible fate. He was a sweet, gentle soul who didn't deserve to suffer the way he had.
Since I moved here a few years ago, I have begun taking in homeless dogs. Lots of dogs. Some have literally wandered in, others I have found alone on the streets and some I have rescued from neglectful homes.
I have received many generous donations in the last few years (thank you). The money is spent on spay/neuter clinics, food & medicine for the dogs here at the rescue and outreach programs (free food and medicine) to local communities who cannot afford these things.
There is a lot of sorrow here, but one dog at a time, it's getting better.
