ENCINITAS, Calif. — Eighteen dogs, including seven puppies, are being cared for in Encinitas after they were rescued from the streets of Mexico.

Rancho Coastal Humane Society shared photos of some of the pups on social media Saturday. A spokesperson said another organization, Rescue Fenix, rescued the animals from the Mexican state of Sonora.

Rescue Fenix fed the dogs and gave them preliminary care before they were transferred to Escondido for a night, then to Rancho Coastal Humane Society for care. RCHS medical staff gave the dogs initial exams then got them settled into new kennels with food and water.

The dogs include mixes of terriers, hounds, Labrador Retrievers, Chihuahuas, shepherds and pit bulls. RCHS President Judi Sanzo said several have orthopedic issues ranging from a crooked jaw to hip and leg problems.

Sanzo said each dog will get more extensive exams, vaccinations, medical treatment including spay or neuter, and surgery, if necessary. People who want to help are encouraged to make donations to Rancho Coastal Humane Society’s medical fund.

1/13/17: The official bulletin has been published stating the grant, approved just recently by the government officials of Sonora, Mexico, will carry out Massy free programs such as spaying and neutering of street dogs and cats, and those belonging to low-income families. This is to help control the over population of these animals, their health issues and well being, as well as their environment.

Congress in Sonora, Mexico were in negotiations on 11/28/2016, related to free campaigns for canines and feline neutering programs to avoid the over population of dogs and cats to minimize violence against them, and some other problems like diseases.
