I’ve fostered over 50 dogs in Sayulita through SayulitAnimals. Somewhere along the line, I’ve lost count of the exact number, but in the last two years, my house has been a revolving door of foster dogs. It all started with Conchita, a beautiful, pot-bellied puppy that was barely larger than my hand.

Hola, my name is Mota. My family went to a shopping mall and I followed them. I waited for three days, but they never came out. My rescuer told me that my family left the building through another door so I wouldn't see them leave. They wanted to get rid of me! Now I need a new home. I'm mellow, friendly, and loving. I'm being fostered with 4 other dogs and 10 cats. I sometimes bark at other dogs who I don't know, but I'm not aggressive. I'd love to find a new family who assures me that I will be safe with them for the rest of my life! Statistics statistics for the last 30 days
