About us

Save A Mexican Mutt, or SAMM, is a dog rescue and adoption organization in San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, Mexico. Dogs are rescued from the streets, local kill shelters and pounds where they’ve suffered from neglect, abuse, starvation and illness. They are placed in loving foster homes, fully vetted, and brought back to good health.
Once they are completely healthy, these lucky dogs are then placed for adoption on our website and multiple networking websites. Some SAMM dogs are adopted locally in Mexico, but most are adopted in the U.S. and Canada. Some are transferred to other rescue organizations or ‘no kill’ shelters in the U.S. that help find them excellent homes.

All SAMM dogs are sterilized, temperament tested, given all mandatory vaccinations, and if they are being transported are examined by a veterinarian and receive a certificate of health within three days of their transport to the U.S. from Mexico.

OK. Get yourself a Martini and a cigarette, turn off cell phones, lock doors and settle back for an amazing story you could not imagine, nor could I describe in adequate words yet feel compelled to share the misadventures and miracles of this memorable day.
