One Community Project:
Four Area of Focus

Sanctuary Hostel is a 501c3 nonprofit with a mission to educate people on animal welfare to reduce stray animals on the streets. We achieve our mission by following our four pillars of focus

Our Services

Eco Hostel

To raise awareness of the problem and financially support the nonprofit.

Animal Rescue

Help with the animal rescue in Mexico to rehab, re-home and teach everyone compassion toward animals.

Community Garden

A community garden to have a shared space that can provide for the community.

Education Center

To provide free classes on animal communication, training and sustainability

The Vision

We believe that animals and humans can co-exist in harmony and support each other for companionship and security within the natural environment

We will do this by combining our animal rescue in Mexico with our eco-hostel and community garden. That way we can all learn and work together

The Mission

To create a self-sustained eco-friendly sanctuary where humans, dogs, cats and any other animals in Mexico can live in peace.

Our animal rescue in Mexico will be combined with a hostel. So you can stay with us and volunteer with the animal rescue. You’ll learn about animals so enriching both your lives.

The Problem

Roughly 70% of Mexico’s 18 million dogs are abandoned and become strays, making it the worst case for pet abandonment in Latin America(1).

Animals are treated more like property than pets, and are often mistreated whether living in a home or on the street(2).

Most attempts to rescue animals often only act as a band aid, not addressing the root of this problem.

Additionally, many animal rescue operations close due to lack of long-term ongoing donations, returning animals back onto the street.

The solution

Our goal is to tackle the stray animal problem at the source and provide a long-term solution with a self-sufficient model. We plan to do this by:


• Encouraging demonstrating animal compassion to young students and surrounding communities

• Training people to better communicate with animals for a happier co-existence

• Setting up an environmentally friendly hostel and community garden to help fund the rescue, provide positive exposures for animals and people and facilitate adoptions and free educational classes

Lovely Stories

Snicker

Snickers was found in the trash as a young puppy, but after being adopted is a happy and healthy pup!

As Snicker, there are many lovely stories of dogs that had been rescued from the streets and found and a family who love them and take care of them.

Rosie

Rosie was found running in traffic in TJ, almost got hit by several cars! Picked her up and took her to the vet and got her healthy. She was adopted by a wonderful lady in North County in San Diego. Rossi learned to ring a doorbell whenever she needs to outside, gets to jump on the trampoline and takes road trips to Arizona to visit her new mama's family. She is one lucky pup!
