EVERY ANIMAL DESERVES KINDNESS
HELPING PAWS ACROSS BORDERS
A Non-profit Mash-Style
On September 30th 12 HPAB members leave for Roatan, an island in the Caribbean not far from Honduras. As beautiful as it is there HPAB won’t be snorkeling on the coral reefs or fishing the bright blue seas. Rather they will be tending to the more than 500 dogs that were locked in a shelter and left to die, save for the local angels who have stepped in for now to feed them.
While we can’t reveal the details of who has caused this tragedy we can, as hpab always does, come to the rescue and fly down to Roatan to perform surgeries, medical treatment, behavior assessments, and, as you might imagine there will be dogs that can’t be saved, euthanasias. There are several dogs with debilitating conditions, like paralysis, we are hoping to help also so they can live with a quality of life you and I would expect.
This is an emergency trip that we didn’t plan to do but we are answering their plea to help. We have been provided flight and accommodations, but we need to raise money to purchase the medicines and other supplies that we will bring with us to care for these dogs. Can you help by donating to us via PayPal or Venmo? No amount is too small. Put Roatan in the memo field of your donation so we make sure it’s used just for that reason.

Local NM Vaccine Clinics
HPAB is now doing a local, low cost vaccine clinic at Simply Diegos in ABQ every few months.
We were there in May and August 2023 and may be looking at a date in November.
Typically we are offering, when supplies allow:
rabies (1 yr and 3yr)
a feline combo (includes feline distemper, rhinotracheitis, and calicivirus)
a canine combo (Canine Distemper Virus, Adenovirus-2 and Parvovirus (DAPP), +/- Parainfluenza Virus)
bordetella (kennel cough)
We accept cash and credit cards
No appointments are taken. Just come during the appointed hours and a veterinarian will be present to give shots. Techs are available to trim nails. Remember, every animal deserves kindness!
