‘Animals come into our lives as gifts from God, for companionship, to teach us,

and to heal us. They deserve our very best efforts in caring for them’

…Dr. Ihor Basko, DVM

A big month for rescue in March. Eight little one day old pups found in the street in a box. I fed them for one night and after an hour s sleep I called Penelope the next day. Penelope met me in Ajo and took the eight pups back to Phoenix. She has been bottle feeding them now since March 26th when they were just a day old. The pups are getting huge and drinking a 5 pound bag of Esbilac every week. I just ordered three bags that were delivered just in time but we know how fast that will go. It is about $55 for a 5 pound bag if I order from Revival Animal Health otherwise it is $30 for a one pound bag at the local pet stores !!!!!!!! We could really use help with the cost of the milk replacement. You can donate through our web-site at: www.rpaac.org/donate.

Paypal is a very safe and easy method to help the animals. A big thank you to all that help.

A BIG thank you to all that help the animals.

I am usually busy in the morning with feeding and giving medicine, so it is best to stop by afternoon or call to let me know you are coming. You can also drop donations at any time over the fence under the sign, as I check often. We thank all who are helping with donations for the animals. We try to feed and help as many of the locals as we can with veterinarian services.

You can bring supplies to the center or call Nancy for pick up at 383-1012 or from the USA (602) 412-3932. We can also pick up donations in Arizona. Just call Nancy at (602) 412-3932 for locations. We are also going to take a trip to Hermosillo to purchase Kirkland dog food at Costco there. Kirkland food at Costco Mexico is made in the USA and distributed in Mexico. I have not been able to find any pet food here in town that is not all cereal and the prices are double what they are in the States.

We are in need of dry cat, kitten, dog and puppy food. Canned cat and dog food, cat litter (non-clumping) laundry detergent, trash bags – white draw string, brushes for cleaning, Downy, waterless hand soap, disinfectant and any cleaning products. With so many puppies we need lots of paper towels! Costco dog beds and baby size or small blankets for the babies. Donations for the animals can be dropped off at Guiseppis restaurant on Freemont and they have a great $5 breakfast!


Four dogs were left alone in a yard for over a year. They have been neglected and possible abused. I did receive three from this same littler, socialized them and found them good homes. But they were only 3 months old when I took them in. If anyone has advice on how to socialize these very large older dogs please let me know. You can call me at (011-52-638) 383-1012 or from Phoenix at (602) 412-3932. We are in need of dog food here at the center. And cat and puppy dry food, A big thank you for your help.

If you can drop off dog and cat food in Phoenix please call me for location sites as we have ways to get the food here to the center. We are also making trip to Costco, Mexico to purchase Kirkland dog and puppy food that is made in the USA and distributed throughout Mexico. The dog food here is mostly cereal and is twice the price as the USA. Please donate if you can.
