  1. Hit and Run

    Good idea, I thought of that, but would they turn a customer in???
  2. Hit and Run

    A late model silver Honda SUV driven by a male ex-pat with an S & S Auto sales decal, sidewiped my car on the corner of Marco Castellanos and Emiliano Carranza today around 11:30 am. It has some of the paint from my beige Chevy Aveo on it. A friend saw him do it and speed away. If you know anyone who has a car of this description, pls ask him to contact me or if you see a car of this description pls pm me. I just bought my car and it didn't have a scratch or a dent on it.
  3. advice for TV service

    The head of Izzy was gunned down in the state of Mexico a few days ago....
  4. That is the same area where about 4 dogs were poisoned last year. Did Ecologia make a report?
  5. Someone asked me to post this. 12 year old basenji who is deaf and needs medication.
  6. Today’s paper. 8 animals, cats and dogs, poisoned on Hidalgo in Ajijic last week. The owner of the Thai restaurant’s dog is dead and several others. Please Share and be alert.
  7. Alert

    From Milenio (well-respected newspaper) from 2013 it states 200 a month are killed in Zapopan http://m.milenio.com/region/mes-animales-sacrificados-Zapopan_0_209379106.html From Universidad de Guadalajara tv more than 21,000 killed in the last 3 years. They are kept by animal control for 72 hours, then killed. http://udgtv.com/noticias/jalisco/en-tres-anos-sacrifican-mas-de-21-mil-perros-en-guadalajara-y-zapopan/amp/
  8. Alert

    Please do your own research. http://www.eltesorodelajumentud.info/perrsind.html 3500 dogs and cats are picked up a month in Guadalajara and 500 are 'sacrificed'.
  9. Alert

    All of the gringos that I know keep their dogs inside and wouldn't notice if street dogs were missing. This report is from several people who have been missing their dogs (10 already) and reports of an official vehicle catching dogs has been made. Chapala doesn't have an official dog-catcher or euthanasia facility, so it is not so far-fetched to believe that Guadalajara, which rounds up and kills many dogs a month, would lend theirs to Chapala.
  10. Crackdown on Golf Carts

    To report shake downs: https://semov.jalisco.gob.mx/denuncias/policias-viales
  11. I am reposting this from a Mexican PRo-animal group. After the dog poisonings and the fact that the poisoner was a government employee who stills works for the local government, maybe this is the next step in getting rid of strays and street dogs to become a Pueblo Mágico. I don't know any details, but I think we have to be alert and report any official looking van picking up dogs . 10/18/17, 19:46:10: Dear colleagues, before posting this in Face Book I want to inform you that this afternoon, when I went out to walk my dogs a merchant from Ajijic told me that they are coming from the Kennel of Guadalajara to take dogs from here, I commented that they come in an official vehicle and they took like 10! We all know what it means, they're going to kill them! I ask for answers from whoever it is since they do not come alone without an invitation, I know that we have problems with some dogs but this nobody was told and it is not right!
  12. Crackdown on Golf Carts

    Tránsito cop with mustache and large belly caught in camera shaking down a 74 year old woman for 5000 for driving a golf cart. When she said she didn't have it he told her to get into his truck to go to the bank. The two witnesses told her that it was kidnapping and not to get in. His name is Camarena.
  13. I was just told that someone picked him up today, so I hope he will be ok.
  14. The owners of a school in Riberas that closed.
  15. From a friend Hope you can pass on this email re a pretty spectacular big male dog who is getting skinny since being left behind a few weeks ago in Riberas near Puritan Poultry. He has a beautiful brindle coat with white chest blaze and is relaxed and quite affectionate. Mostly great Dane with a bit of mastiff judging by his head. We'll try to get him food and water daily, but this would be a great dog for someone who appreciates a big pet and great security. We would take him in a heartbeat if we didn't already have an oversized male+2 females (full house). If anyone is interested, call Don or Ian at 766 4990 or email us iandavid81@gmail.com or dfraserhouse@yahoo.com
