Mexican strays fly to Calgary

Non-profit finding foreign dogs a home


A company called Pawsitive Match is flying stray Mexican dogs to Calgary for adoption. About 15 pups arrive every month from La Paz, Mexico, part of an area of the country where there are up to 10,000 strays. “They’re beaten, they’re kicked, they’re thrown out of cars there,” says Mirella Montgomery, head of Pawsitive Match. However, the Calgary humane society, which is full with about 130 dogs ready to be adopted, is urging people to rescue local pets before turning to other countries.
