Our latest rescues here

About us

It all starts in the streets of Tijuana. One puppy / kitten at a time.

The number of stray dogs and cats have increased quite a bit on the streets of Tijuana, mostly in the Zona Norte area and where the arch is located on First and Revolucion - probably because those are the best places to get food from tourists and the trash left on the curbside each night for garbage collection.

These are not feral strays birthed in the pavement and asphalt but grown, domesticated animals. Many are friendly, and hungry. THEY ARE ABANDONED PETS.


On behalf of all the abandoned dogs and cats in Tijuana, we’d like to extend to you a warm “thank you” for your support of We Saved A Puppy. Our mission of rescuing and adopting out homeless pets would be impossible without your financial support. We document the life saving impact of all funds received on our social media platforms and invite you to browse all adoptable pets in our virtual adoption shelter.
