Avenue Dogs is committed to providing educational information and resources for dog owners across the globe. While our site is designed for everyone, everywhere, we decided to highlight some really great organizations in Mexico. These organizations do a ton for local communities often with limited resources.
This time, we’re going to feature a Mexican dog rescue doing some great things in CDMX – Indie Foster Network. We got a chance to chat with Amy Marjoram about this local organization. Amy is an Australian indie rescuer living in CDMX. She’s rescued countless street dogs both independently and through the foster network.
If you’d like to volunteer or donate to CDMX Indie Foster Network while in Mexico City, Mexico, you can contact them directly via Instagram. We’ll drop that info below;
CDMX Indie Foster Care is located in Mexico City, Mexico. They’re often in need of donations, flight angles, and foster parents. If you’re in the area, we highly recommend checking out some of the awesome things they’re doing for the local community.
Avenue Dogs (AD): Hi Amy! Give Us A Quick Rundown of What Your Organization Does!
Amy: We are a network of foster carers living in CDMX – we do direct rescue, fostercare, health protocol, followed by local CDMX and international adoptions. We also try to promote responsible adoption practices and provide information and support to independent rescuers (like people who are first time rescuing a stray dog or dumped puppy they have found) and people looking to adopt within the city.
AD: How Can People Help/Donate to CDMX Indie Foster Network?
Amy: We appreciate new and secondhand donations of all dog items including, dog beds, toys, food, travel crates, eash-wash blankets and towels. If you are interested in fostering in CDMX please contact us!
AD: Do You Have Any Advice for People Wanting to Adopt Dogs in Mexico?
Amy: Always think first about your lifestyle and what you can offer a dog and then reach out to groups to ask them if they have dogs that could be suitable. Rescuers know the temperaments of dogs and can really help find the right dog for you. It is rare that we have people approach in this way, rather than being interested in a specific dog, but it often results in the best outcome!
AD: Awesome! Anything Else You’d Like to Share?
Amy: I just wanted to share that black coloured dogs and brindle dogs are not as popular in Mexico and can be incredibly difficult to find homes for. So please always consider them when adopting!
AD: Do You Have Any Other Dog Rescues You Work with/Recommend?
Yes! I work closely with Rocco’s Relief Foundation (in Morelos, Mexico).
CDMX Indie Foster Network is one of our featured organizations in Mexico. They work closely with locals to find the pur-fect home for animals in need by promoting responsible adoption practices. The foster network offers numerous resources for indie rescuers too!
