Two Brothers' Baja Dog Rescue Finds Loving Homes for Street Dogs

Life for the numerous street dogs in in Baja California is not very good, except for the lucky ones who eventually get a responsible owner. And because these homeless animals are not neutered, the problem grows.

Brothers Adam and Josh Prater were inspired to try to make a difference for the street dogs of Baja. They found a 50,000-square-foot space in Tijuana and started Baja Dog Rescue in 2008, building a nonprofit organization dedicated to rescuing and finding loving homes for homeless dogs.

Although they mostly rescue Baja dogs, they also take animals from the American side of the border. So far they have rescued more than 6,500 dogs.

Both brothers work day jobs. Josh is a chemical engineer and Adam works as an administrator helping people with government programs. But the rest of their time is dedicated to their growing rescue organization.

Their organization has a full time hospital and medical center that is open seven days a week to care for both rescued dogs and animals brought in by owners. It is a no-kill facility that is often referred to as “The Sanctuary”.

The Praters have treated over 500 dogs for Parvo with a 90-to-95 percent success rate and have a 75 percent success rate in treating distemper. They have helped many dogs with various ailments and diseases and even manufacture their own flea, tick, and worm medications.
