PetSmart Adoptions CenterOur cats are for adoption at the Vista, California PetSmart store and are housed full-time in the store’s adoption center – just inside the store and to the right. Volunteers are always needed to come in and clean the adoption room, feed and water the the kitties, and to play with them! If you love cats this is a great place to spend some time!Kathleen Paymard:(760) [email protected]
Fostering AnimalsAfter and adoption event, any animals that have not been adopted are generally placed in a loving foster home until the next adoption event. This way the animals don’t have to be driven back to Mexico, and then back up again for the next event. Loving foster homes are needed for both dogs and cats. If you have room in your house and in your heart to provide a temporary home for one our our animals let us know!Sandra Simpson(619) [email protected]
Volunteering At The SanctuaryBecause the Baja Animal Sanctuary resides in Mexico, volunteers must be able to drive to Rosarito Beach, Mexico in order to volunteer. Extra help is always needed at the sanctuary! Volunteers spend the day bathing animals, cleaning cages and corrals, playing with the dogs and cats, and, if medically trained (Pre-Vet, Vet Techs, etc) help is always needed to evaluate the animals, and administer medications and vaccines, etc. Hotels are located close by in town for volunteers who want to help out for more than one day.Call from the US Dial:Sunny Benedict011 52 661 612 [email protected]
