Wet Noses Rescue

San Juan de Abajo, NAY

Our Mission

We are a rescue and shelter primarily located in Punta Mita and Sayulita Mexico with fosters in southern California, Washington, and beyond.

Our mission is to provide a safe space for all animals,
while offering resources and educational opportunities.

We vow to provide the Five Freedoms to these animals:
1. Freedom from hunger and thirst.
2. Freedom from discomfort.
3. Freedom from pain injury and disease
4. Freedom from fear and distress.
5. Freedom to express normal behaviors.

Adoption Policy

First, adopters must fill out our online application at If approved, there is a phone interview and virtual home check.

We are a shelter based in Punta de Mita, Mexico, and also operate in San Diego. We understand that it can be challenging to meet our animals in person due to the distance. However, we have a process in place to ensure a smooth adoption experience. Most of our animals are located at our shelter in Punta de Mita. We frequently arrange transportation for our animals up the West Coast of the USA (San Francisco, Seattle, etc.) and the Western Provinces of Canada (Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, etc.). To help you get a better sense of the animals, we can offer additional photos, videos, and even schedule video calls.

Please see our Google Reviews ( for some of our adoptive families' experiences. We are a volunteer run organization, and a flight angel would accompany them. This area is a touristy area, and many people like to volunteer in various ways to support the community, and especially support the neglected animals finding good homes. To secure flights, it generally takes us between 1-4 weeks once an animal is ready to go home.
