Spay and Neuter Campaigns
Surfers for Strays provides monthly spay and neuter clinics to local communities in Guerrero, in partnership with Defensa y Rescate Animal. Since 2020 we have raised enough to spay and neuter over 3,000 dogs and cats. Learn more about our partnership with Defensa y Rescate Animal here. Sponsor a campaign today!
Surfers for Strays was started in 2017 by Natalie Ritenour and Isabel Velasco when they rescued seven puppies and the puppies' mother who had been abandoned and left to suffer from malnourishment and parasites. With the support of their community, their work grew and two years later Surfers for Strays became an official organization with programs that supported the adoption of abandoned dogs, youth education, and free spay and neuter program for underserved communities.
