Defensa y Rescate Animal

Defensa y Rescate Animal (Animal Defense and Rescue) is a non-profit group in Ixtapa, Mexico.  Like Surfers for Strays, they seek to develop a culture of responsibility and respect for animals. Together we work to create awareness for responsible ownership. This includes sterilization campaigns for pets and education for care and compassion. We strive to put an end to overpopulation, neglect and abuse of domestic animals and teach respect for the life of wild animals. We value and are committed to our partnership with Defensa y Rescate Animal. 

The impact of our partnership goes beyond helping stray animals. We participate in joint programs involving the local branches of government to bring education and improved health, safety and sanitation to the communities most in need. Education programs targeting students will bring change to society by affecting families and future generations. Health, safety and sanitation are improved as the numbers of stray animals are decreased.

Dr. Sheddy -  Vet Tails

Vet Tails was established aboard the sail boat SV Chuffed, with a mission to improve animal welfare and health. Dr. Sheddy needed a break from boat work and found Surfers for Strays,  a dream volunteer position located near her dream wave! Since then Dr. Sheddy, along with sailing veterinary technician Michelle, have helped Surfers for Strays improve their medical programs, host spay and neuter campaigns, and treat animals in the Troncones Region. Check out the blog Dr. Sheddy wrote about her work at the Rescue Center. Dr. Sheddy also produced three videos about her time in Troncones at the Rescue Center and her work helping during a local spay and neuter campaign. Check them out below!
