This story about a vacationing couple who took the time to help stray animals touched our hearts!

Jeff and Diana Hall discovered a large pack of stray dogs and cats living on the beach together on a trip to La Paz, Mexico, a few years ago. The majority of them were extremely thin and in need of medical attention, but they were incredibly friendly.

The pack included 34 animals, according to the couple who own Camp Bow Wow doggy day camp in Burnsville, MN.

There are eight puppies aged three to four weeks, five puppies aged fourteen weeks, fourteen adult dogs, and seven cats.

The Halls were aware of Mexico’s dog overpopulation and that there are an estimated 10,000 stray dogs in Baja California Sur. However, the Halls were “awestruck by the number of dogs and cats living in one pack and attempting to survive together.”

They knew they had to help the animals they dubbed the “Baja 34 Pack” right away. They soon discovered, however, that the regulations and requirements made it impossible to bring any of them back home.

That didn’t stop them from researching local rescue groups and brainstorming ways to help the dogs and cats in the long run.

While they researched rescue groups, they fed and gave water to their pack every day. The Halls were astounded by just how well the animals all got along. “We fed them as one big pack and they just dove for the food and had no food aggression – even with the cats!”

“We had some wet food and could feed them a forkful of food one at a time and they would all sit there and take turns, yes, even with the cats,” the Halls describe on their GoFundMe page.

They were polite and well-behaved. Even the most resistant little guy eventually warmed up to us. It took a while for a couple of them to trust us, but in the end they were all content to eat from our hands.

The Halls had a conversation with the neighborhood no-kill shelter, but they were regrettably oversubscribed and unable to help. Additionally, they discovered Baja Canines La Paz, a rescue organization that aids in returning dogs for adoption to the US and Canada. This organisation supports the Halls’ rescue effort and works with the shelter.

The Halls are organizing a fundraiser to support the Baja 34 Pack and pay for the animals’ neutering and spaying procedures, as well as their health examinations and immunizations. They are also working to arrange for their transport to Minnesota, where they hope to find them loving homes.

Since they started their campaign, a number of the dogs have found new homes, and the first few litters have come to Minnesota.

“Each and every one of these dogs and cats are well behaved and would make wonderful family pets,” the Halls write.

“We were astounded by their faith in us and the hope we saw in their eyes. It was clear they were also in need of affection even though they were in need of food.

The pack now has more optimism for the future thanks to the Halls!
