Pets at Our Rescue Group:
Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:Currently, we can arrange transportation to most major cities in Texas. We will also fly a dog anywhere in the continental United States and parts of Canada.
About Our Rescue Group:Save A Mexican Mutt, or SAMM, was started in 2003 by Kelly and Jim Karger after they witnessed the needless suffering of homeless and neglected dogs on the streets of San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, Mexico. Then they found out that dogs and cats are euthanized by electrocution and drowning in nearly all parts of Mexico.
Since its inception, over 500 dogs have been transported to their forever homes in the United States, Canada and some have been adopted locally.
We work in conjunction with highly qualified and ethical "no-kill" rescue organizations and shelters in Texas, New Mexico and do direct adoptions.
Prior to transport, all dogs are spayed or neutered, temperament tested, tested for heartworm, are current on their vaccinations, and arrive with a health certificate dated within three days of crossing the Mexico/U.S. border.
SAMM has received approval from the IRS as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Your donations are U.S. tax deductible and are necessary to expand our efforts to help more dogs find their forever homes. Donations can be made at our website: www.saveamexicanmutt.org.
And, SAMM is always grateful for volunteers willing to provide transportation to the United States and Canada for adopted dogs and puppies. If you are in San Miguel and plan to drive or fly (via American Airlines) to the U.S.A. and you would be interested in facilitating transportation please contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Come Meet our Pets:We are an all foster organization. Videos are available on most of the adoptable dogs.
Our Adoption Process:If you are considering adopting a Mexican Mutt please go to our website for our online adoption application - http://saveamexicanmutt.org/adopt-application-form.php.
We work very hard to match dog to family. So, be prepared to fill out this lengthy but straightforward application.
These dogs have had a rough life. So, it is necessary to make sure they will have a home and family they can forever call their own.
Your application will be thoroughly reviewed and you will have a telephone interview. In most cases, we will arrange a home visit. It is the goal of SAMM to ensure the animal you adopt fits your lifestyle and that of your family.
