Type of Organization
Situated in Mazatlan, Mexico, Amigos de los Animales is a group of dedicated individuals providing a much needed service to the community. Their goal is to create an environment free of homeless dogs and cats.
Acting as a refuge for all unwanted animals, Amigos de los Animales believes that every animal in need deserves a chance at survival and a forever home. They will accept any dog or cat brought to their doorstep during hours of operation. Strictly non-profit and operating solely on donations, fundraisers and adoptions, they make every possible effort to treat the homeless, sick and injured animals that cross their path as well but are limited due to funding and resources.
Their focus is to promote the humane treatment of domestic animals through education, pet population control (spay/neuter), rescue and adoption. Since their debut in June of 1996, the organization has helped hundreds of animalsfind homes and treatment. They have also also designed and implemented a successful catch, spay/neuter and release program for feral cats.
