Border Tails Rescue
2975 Milwaukee Ave, Northbrook, IL 60062, United States
The life of a homeless dog in Mexico is not only difficult and dangerous, it can be deadly. They are often starving, sick and injured. According to Mexico’s National Institute of Statistics and Geography, Mexico has the largest number of street dogs in Latin America with around 70 percent of Mexico’s estimated 18 million dogs living on the streets, either born as strays or abandoned by their owners. It’s estimated that 1.2 million stray dogs and cats are living in the streets of Mexico City alone. For the lucky ones that end up in one of the few shelters, the number of people looking to adopt a pet in Mexico is far lower than the amount of animals needing homes. Our mission is to decrease the homeless pet population in Mexico through education and awareness presentations discussing the need to spay and neuter, the direct connection between compassion for animals and compassion for people, as well as arranging transportation, foster homes and adoptions of the animals from our partner rescues in the Cancun area. While the primary focus of Border Tails Rescue is international pet adoptions, our compassion and commitment to animal welfare doesn’t stop at the border, we also are working to help reduce the number of homeless pets locally by accepting owner surrenders.
