We all hope that once this pandemic passes, the world can be a better place, and people can continue to try harder, to pollute less, to focus on families, to love their pets, and to help those in need.

Happy Tuesday! Today, we wanted to share a bit about one of our rescue partners! The Dog-Go Project (formerly operated as Backstreet Dogs) is in Puebla, Mexico (a few hours outside of Mexico City). It’s a large city, but feels a bit like a town, with great food, architecture and rich in culture. It’s about 7000 feet above see level, which is great for the dogs, as it’s mosquito and tick free there. Gabiria runs the Dog-Go Project and is a woman that can’t be described. If we had to try, words that come to mind are determined, persistent, fierce, determined (yes, we know we said it twice: it’s warranted). At times we ask Gabi an impossible ask, and she will say “You are crazy” and then 10 minutes later, she will say “Ok, I’m thinking about it” and within a day, she will have an answer, or have it done. She knows that DIBS has high standards and she strives for perfection with all of her rescue partners (in addition to DIBS, she works with many other groups across Ontario and BC) and has developed some really amazing relationships with so many rescue warriors. While saving thousands of lives a year, Gabi has also seen the hardships other countries have and she has jumped in to help others, that have even less resources than she does.
With the effects of COVID resulting in lost lives of so many dogs in Mexico (and other countries), Gabiria continues to plan. She is contacting airlines to see what can be done, and she is planning for the worst. She expect that her main shelter will need to double in capacity from holding 200 dogs to 400 dogs (and when that is full, no idea what to do!) If you want to help Gabi out, she always has something on the go. She is working with Meals for Mutts to have people sponsor food for just one day at the shelter. She runs spay/neuter clinics (all on hold during pandemic) and right now, she is trying to get facilities to expand capacity in the shelter. if you want to donate, you can via this link: https://chuffed.org/…/we-need-to-built-more-cages-and-insol… (Or donate to email@example.com and make a note for us to pass your funds along.
