Snickers was found in the trash as a young puppy, but after being adopted is a happy and healthy pup! Snickers wants you to sign up so we can all help save strays!

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.

Our 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
