Meet Dora

This precious girl was found, wrapped in a towel with a baby bottle, on the side of the road near the shelter in January of 2024. Luckily, someone saw her and brought her to the shelter. Once she could walk, she immediately began to explore her world and so she was named, Dora, the explorer. She is a feisty brave pup and plays with the big dogs without fear. She has vet protocols to complete. Learn more about her by going to our webpage.

Adoption process:

Our rescue is located near Bucerias, Mexico. We use Petfinder to reach a greater audience for our dogs and adopt the majority of our dogs to the US and Canada.

The first step is to submit an application on our website here:

Once we receive your application, we will review it and may contact you for more information or to conduct a home check. If your application is approved, we collaborate with flight companions (flight angels) flying from Puerto Vallarta to destinations close to where the dog is posted as available for adoption. Adopters can meet these flight angels at the airport and take the pup home. (More detailed information about this process is available upon request.) Before requesting adoption fees or the signing of the adoption contract, we give adopters a few days to a week to spend time with their new pup. If, for some reason, things were not to work out, we kindly ask that the adopters foster the dog until we find a suitable home for them.

A few notes about our pups:

- Most of our shelter dogs are accustomed to being outside and free-roaming, unless otherwise stated. Some may have been in homes before and could be potty trained, but in a new environment, they would need easy access to the outside and be re-acclimated to their designated potty area. We cannot guarantee a pup is potty trained unless they are with a foster or surrendered to us with noted training.

- We can send more videos/pictures of our dogs. More than likely, they'll have friends in the background. Unfortunately, we cannot do live videos at our shelter.

- Our dogs are given de-wormer, tested negative for heartworm (unless otherwise noted), are up to date on required vaccines for travel, and receive regular flea and tick treatment. They have also been evaluated by our vet, who has provided any necessary medical care upon rescue.

-Last but not least, we LOVE our dogs, and we hope you do too. They have hearts of gold, and so much love to give. Please be kind and patient with them; they are worth it! It takes time to adjust to new people and new places.

We have over 150 rescued dogs. Please consider one. The shelter is full.
