Wendy Alvarez - Founder
Through contacts in various areas of Tijuana, Wendy is notified about animals in need of rescue. As you can imagine it is like trying to empty a river with a spoon. If she is unable to pick the animals up personally she pays for transport so we can get them any needed medical care and into safe homes. She also pay foster families to keep some of the dogs, cats, kittens and puppies until they are adopted. She has many pets of her own but some rescues needing extra attention may stay by her side as needed. It is heartbreaking because some do not make it. Everyday is an emotional and financial drain to say the least. Wendy lives for the happy outcomes and is often assisted by her fiance and young daughter. She spends much of her own money to further the cause, including money set aside for her wedding.
