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 info@saveamexicanmutt.org.

Muchas gracias!

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.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
