Welcome to the Baja Animal Sanctuary web site, and thank you for your interest in this special organization.

The Baja Animal elfbc5000kz Sanctuary, which resides in Rosarito Beach, Mexico, just 25 miles south of the San Ysidro border, was founded in March of 1997 by American Sunny Benedict. Sunny, working in Real Estate in Rosarito Beach at the time, would see the local animals, mangy and starving, roaming the streets in search of a kind stranger who might pat them on the head, or toss them a morsel of food. She knew that she had to do something! BAS was the result. With $180.00 in initial donations she began the Baja Animal Sanctuary.

The sanctuary, the only no-kill shelter in northern Mexico, provides a safe haven for dogs and cats in need. They receive food, medical care, and love for as long as they need. The sanctuary averages close to 400 canine residents and 75 feline residents at any given time. Because we are a no-kill facility, animals that can not be adopted are allowed to stay. Dogs and cats are euthanized only in cases of extreme illness.

BAS was officially incorporated in the year 2000 and is recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3), not-for-profit corporation qualified to receive tax-deductible contributions. BAS receives no assistance from the Mexican government. We survive entirely from contributions from concerned animal lovers.
