My story

***Currently located in Guerrero, Mexico***

Meet Bobby, Male

Approx. DOB:  6/14/2021

Helloooo!!  

I am so excited to have my very own introduction!! My name is Bobby and I wish I could tell you how sweet and lovely I am without sounding arrogant haha! I try to be as kind as I can to all living creatures – I wouldn't hurt a fly. Or a cat. Or another dog. Or a human. I just love everybody!

When I first meet people I can be a little bit timid.  However I will still come up to you right away, but will check you out before I give you my full heart and trust 

As you can see in some pictures, I am still recovering from a parasite, which made me lose my fur in round patches. The fur is growing back already, but you can still see the patches, which makes me look kinda funny! The humans here say I look beautiful reguardless and I believe them! They tell me that I have the sweetest and most loyal look on my face – I don't even know what to do with all the compliments! 

Here at the shelter I am friends with everybody and I like to hang out with my dog friends the same as I like to get some affection from the caretakers! They always have sweet words for me and I try to give them back as much love and affection as I can!

I am already crate trained which makes travel to my future home will be super easy! A life with me as your fellow fur-bear would be great and full of kindness, joy, and love!

Sending you tons of hugs and kisses!!
Your Bobby

Additional adoption info

You can apply to foster, adopt, or foster-to-adopt our pups. If a family isn't ready for the lifetime commitment of adoption, fostering is a shorter term commitment and helps save lives. If you are pretty sure about the dog you want, but would like a trial period, you should fill out the Adoption Application and select Foster-to-Adopt.

More about this rescue

Surfers for Strays was started in January of 2017 by Isabel Velasco and Natalie Ritenour when they rescued 7 puppies and their mother, who had been abandoned at a local hot springs in Lagunillas, Guerrero, Mexico. The puppies were being eaten alive by parasites and their mother was severely malnourished. Working together the women devised a plan to house and care for the animals and raise funds and more importantly, raise awareness to sterilize pets. They gained enough support in the local community to start helping “callajeros”, street animals in the villages of Troncones, Los Llanos, La Saladita and surrounding regions. With the help of local veterinarians and citizens, they organized spay and neuter clinics and a program to educate children on how to treat and care for animals. Surfers and other travelers began volunteering and growing the network to foster and adopt animals in the US and Canada. With that momentum and the love and support of key volunteers, Surfers for Strays Inc. was founded in August of 2019 to cover more ground and help more animals escape the cycle of neglect, abuse and abandonment. From 2020-2021, Surfers for Strays adopted out more than 250 dogs and cats to fur-ever homes in North America and paid for more than 3,150 dogs and cats to be spayed and neutered in local communities in Mexico. Your donations support our programs to sterilize, rehabilitate, find fosters and adopters for animals in need. Your donations also support education programs for the humane treatment of animals in underserved communities. Together we are saving animals and sharing the Mucho Aloha spirit.
