Amigos de los Animales de Todos Santos (AATS) has been
working to improve the lives of our four-legged friends
in the Todos Santos area for nearly 27 years. In 2009,
we obtained our sanction from the Mexican
government as a true non-profit organization.
Historically, most of our effort has been aimed
at effective animal population control through
spay and neuter work. Being a rural area
in Baja California Sur, sterilization of pets
has not been common practice. Over the
years, we have been very successful in
working with local and foreign residents
to change this mindset.
Since we started keeping statistics on our
sterilization clinics in 1997, we have spayed and
neutered close to 4000 animals - and that is just at
the clinics! Our year round efforts that include reduced cost
and free sterilizations have resulted in an additional 3000 animals
spayed or neutered, 7000 in total!!!
In addition to sterilization programs, we are very active in
animal rescue and sheltering. From kittens left on our
doorsteps and lost doggies to abused animals, we
continually strive to care for those in need of a
helping hand. In 2005, we opened Kitty Heaven
as one of the few feline only animal shelters
in the Baja where we can keep comfortable
around twenty five or so kitties while they
And we could not have done all of this
without the help of great folks like you!
