About Tijuana Paws & Whiskers Rescue (TJPAW)
TJPAW Rescue is a very small, grass roots pet rescue. Through contacts in various areas of Tijuana, I am notified about animals in need of rescue. As you can imagine it is like trying to empty a river with a spoon. If I am unable to pick the animals up personally I pay for transport so we can get them any needed medical care and into safe homes. I also pay foster families to keep some of the dogs, cats, kittens and puppies until they are adopted. I have many pets of my own but some rescues needing extra attention may stay by my side as needed. It is heartbreaking because some do not make it. Everyday is an emotional and financial drain to say the least. I live for the happy outcomes! We cover the cost of all medical treatments and vet bills. Currently this is primarily done with personal funds and some donations that come through. I do this alone with my 13 year old daughter and am working on forming a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit. My dream is a shelter to house the rescues so we can help more pets in need. If you can find it in your heart to donate funds to help cover vet bills or donate food, anything would be greatly appreciated. Also, foster homes are very much needed. I am reminded daily of the raw cruelty of some and pure kindness of others. I hope you will be a part of the solution and help us rescue those we can. Having to turn animals in need away and leave them on the streets is gut wrenching. Thank you so much for your support. I am available anytime to answer rescue related questions if you need to learn more about this project.
