At AvenueDogs.com, we’re happy to share all things dog related we can. Our goal is to provide a useful service to dog owners and potential owners so they can enjoy their furry friend to the fullest. While anyone across the globe can benefit from the information on our site, we’ve decided to highlight some pretty impressive dog organizations throughout Mexico.
We’re always awed by what these organizations are able to do with very few resources. Today, we’re going to focus on a rescue that’s been running full speed since 2015 – Helping Street Dogs in Mexico.
Helping Street Dogs in Mexico is located in Querétaro, Mexico. If you’re ever in the area for a visit or a long-term stay, they’re always in need of flight angels, foster parents, and of course forever parents. Donations are always welcome as they are a completely non-profit organization to date.
This local rescue can be reached via Facebook, WhatsApp, or directly through their website. We’ll put that info below – just be aware, it can take up to 24-hours for them to get back to you as they’re always busy with animals.

Using their own funding and donations, this rescue helps dogs with vet care, vaccines, training, sterilization, and rehoming. They work directly with Fundación DAR. We spoke with the humble Monique Woolaoctt to learn more about this organization that does so much for the local community.
Hi Monique! Can You Give Us A Quick Rundown of What Your Organization Does?
Sure. We pick up dogs and cats from the street, give all vet care needed, rehabilitation therapy, sterilization clinics, training and finding homes for our animals as well as public education.
So, How Can People Help/Donate to Helping Street Dogs in Mexico?
We take money through our refuge (Fundacion DAR) via Paypal. We also always need crates, blankets, leashes, coats for winter. We are always looking for flight angels and rescue groups willing to take our dogs and adopt them out for us in the USA and Canada.
Awesome. Do You Have Any Advice for People Wanting to Adopt Dogs in Mexico?
Dogs in central Mexico are healthier than dogs from the beach. Ensure the group you adopt from has provided all the correct medical care and vaccinations, including sterilization. Ask for a thorough evaluation of the dog’s overall behavior. In fact, just ask a lot of questions!
Good Advice! Is There Anything Else You’d Like to Share?
What we do is difficult and stressful. Be aware that we may not get back to you the same day because we may be out rescuing animals all day. We have a 24 hour policy of getting back to all questions. We have information we can send to answer many questions before adoption… for example: Step By Step How To Ship Your Dog.
Do You Have Any Other Dog Rescues You Work with/Recommend?
We do! Here in Mexico, we work directly with Fundación DAR. Our refuge is still being built. We have an area for a vet clinic but no vet yet, a dog hotel to raise money to help our dogs, a large grass area for dog training and exercise, a dirt exercise yard with agility stuff, and are building isolation areas now for the really sick dogs.
And Finally, Tell Us Your Favorite Dog/Rescue Joke!
King size bed, one rescue dog, 12″ at the edge of the bed is where you get to sleep! No kidding.
Helping Street Dogs in Mexico is one of our featured rescues. They go above and beyond to rehabilitate and rehome as many dogs as they can. Unadoptable dogs that have medical issues, behavioral problems, or are simply too old for adoption are kept by the couple for life. Learn more about this fantastic shelter, and how you can help here.
Have a dog foster or rescue success story? We’d love to hear that too! Tell us your pup’s heartwarming tale of how you met, the challenges you faced, and of course what your furry friend is up to now! Success stories are a great way to encourage others to choose to rescue!
