Lost Dog Foundation is a non-profit organization devoted to improving the lives of homeless and abandoned animals living on the streets in Mexico and to finding them loving forever homes…we concentrate efforts in Tulum, Quintana Roo, Mexico but we work with and assist grass-roots animal welfare organizations such as Tierra de Animales, Coco’s Cat Rescue and Isla Animals other cities who rescue, sterilize and rehabilitate animals. Starvation, disease, abuse and neglect are daily crises for dogs and cats on the streets. The conditions of many dogs who are lucky enough to be rescued are dire, and only the strongest will survive. It is critical that local rescues receive help to be able to care for these animals, as Mexico has no organized or official SPCA or humane society that helps animals at all. Lost Dog Foundation is actively organizing and conducting spay and neuter clinics whenever possible, as it is the humane and smart solution to being able to diminish the size of the homeless animal population. Frequently, LDF personally transports puppies and dogs from Mexico to the US to find forever homes, or delivers them to their waiting adoptive families in the US. We also sponsor the flights for others either in our care or with other partner organizations to make it to forever homes. Donations help with the medical costs and general needs for dogs who come to the US under our foster care. Lost Dog Foundation is based in Virginia, USA, but focuses efforts on areas in the Yucatan of Mexico where problems are rampant with street dog and cat overpopulation, disease and abandonment. LDF has successfully placed more than 400 dogs and puppies in wonderful homes in hte US and Canada in just a few years…saving lives and changing lives!
In the Richmond, VA area, Lost Dog Foundation is part of a network of volunteers who transport rescued dogs from high kill shelters in the South Carolina and Georgia to foster and rescue destinations in the North. Assisting in transporting dogs allows them to make it out of a death sentence and be able to find new lives in areas where they have much better chances of adoption. We are also committed to reducing the feral cat population and work actively to trap, neuter and return (TNR) cats as much as possible. Lost Dog Foundation is a registered 501 (3)c charity and all donations for donors in the US are 100% tax deductible.
