Currently, the Rescate Fenix shelter in Sonora, Mexico has to keep their rescued dogs outside. There is no paved or shaded area, so the dogs must either sit or lay on dirt ground, with neither sun nor rain protection. Flea, tick, and fly infestations, along with other skin problems caused and exacerbated by the dirt and relentless sun are common. Summer temperatures can reach 115 degrees, and during the rainy season, mud and wetness increase skin problems and medical issues in a cycle of misery.
To protect these poor dogs from extreme weather, to allow their skin ailments to heal, and to provide both desperately needed comfort and enrichment, Rescate Fenix is hoping to construct Salas, shade structures elevated from the ground. The structures will help these abandoned and abused dogs regain their health, and raising their quality of life at the shelter will help make for more adoptable dogs as well.
You can help! Each Sala allows safe, protected space for 12 dogs and costs $300 per sala. Our goal is to help build 8 Salas for the dogs of Rescate Fenix. Please help today!
