Amigos Dog Walk

If this doesn't bring a smile to everyone's face........ Amigos de Los Animales organized a doggy walk (parade) yesterday to raise awareness. Prizes were given, and it's clear some folks spent a lot of time on designing their precious dog's costume. :-)

Amigos de los Animales was organized by North of the Border folks in Mazatlan.

From these photos it certainly appears that the local residents were well represented in this fundraiser.

This is good to see.

Things have come a long way since the early days of Amigos de Los Animales. The staff (locals) work tirelessly to educate on animal care. They go on radio, TV, schools, colleges, and put on various events like this one. We see more and more people walking dogs on leashes, and the vet offices are extremely busy with caring for animals. It continues to get better and better, thanks to the hard work and combined effort of many people. The website outlining what they do is:

Posting information about amigos delosanimales is relevant to this travel site as this organization does some good things that tourists may want to participate in. The chat room banter that was the source of all this discourse on the other closed thread was simply a blog. As a traveler to Mazatlan and an animal lover I would be very interested in contributing in some small way to this fine organization's efforts. Thanks for posting this Mazzi and I will note that Mazzi in no way contributed to the fracas on the other thread.
