When the owners of a dog day care and boarding service were on vacation in Mexico, they saw a large pack of stray dogs and made it their mission to help the neglected animals.
Jeff and Diana Hall, who own Camp Bow Wow Burnsville, counted 34 puppies, dogs and cats living together on the beach in La Paz, Mexico, back in February, and after noticing they needed medical care, they began working to get the "Baja 34 Pack" some help, their GoFundMe Page says.
They reached out to shelters in Mexico, but because the country has an overpopulation of dogs, they were full. So, the Halls began a fundraising page, as well as a GoFundMe page and a Facebook page, to help the animals currently in the shelter get adopted in order to make room for the "Baja 34 Pack," according to the fundraising page.
The Halls have also been working with Minnesota-based rescue Last Hope to bring some of the animals to Minnesota in order to find them loving forever homes, the page notes.
The first group of animals arrived in Minnesota over the weekend, Sun This Week reports.
Since the Halls first saw the animals, the pack has grown to more than 60 because puppies and kittens were born before the pack could be rescued, Sun This Week adds.
So far, $50,000 has been raised for the "Baja 34 Pack," KARE 11 notes.
