Our Story

Who we are

CANIMX is an animal rescue and healthcare facility operating out of the city of La Paz in Baja, Mexico, with a full staff including veterinary doctors, caretakers and rescue personnel, as well as a social media and public relations department. Our facilities include a full veterinary clinic and animal hospital, complete with ambulances and rescue vehicles which are fully sanctioned by the local authorities. The main complex includes a kennel area for animal reception and healthcare prep, as well as different pens and enclosures for varying levels of canine and feline recovery. CANIMX’s Medical facilities are equipped for every level of animal healthcare, from vaccination to trauma treatment to major surgery and recovery.

Animal suffering is unfortunately common in a third world country like Mexico, especially in rural communities, where canine and feline overpopulation has become the common denominator that, when added to growing levels of poverty and scarce household income in these communities, results in large numbers of these creatures ending up homeless, starving, disease ridden and mistreated. Thus CANIMX operates under the premise that every animal attended, whether checked in or rescued must be sterilized, and that the population must be made aware of the fact that controlling the proliferation of these creatures not only prevents future suffering of cats and dogs, but benefits the community as well.

Veterinary Services

CANIMX operates under the belief that affordable healthcare for pets is the only option for this goal to be reached. In Mexico, where a middle class barely exists and household income has dropped over the past decade, the elevated fees of veterinary clinics become cost-prohibitive for many pet owners, who in turn end up abandoning their pets to their fates by either opting for euthanasia, or simply turning the animals out to the street to fend for themselves.

Values

We at CANIMX love animals, pure and simple.

We feel empathy towards them and their plight, especially since we believe that animal overpopulation is not difficult to eradicate. WE KNOW that with the proper method, one that we have devised and used in the past, we can quickly spay and neuter every single pet and stray animal in any given community at a very low cost and that we can provide affordable healthcare to ailing animals, whether they be brought in by owners or rescued off the street, and not only save many lives, but provide hope and new homes for these animals who, we believe, deserve a better quality of life.

Mission Statement

  • We provide prompt, affordable medical treatment for pets and rescued animals.
  • Our veterinarians staff a fully equipped hospital and mobile units, and conduct educational programs.
  • We operate an adoption program designed to place rescued animals in the best possible homes locally.
  • We work with the community and authorities to end canine and feline overpopulation through our door-to-door Spay / Neuter program.
  • Our goal is to become self-sustainable in the short-term and to spread our operation to other cities in Mexico and to the United States.
