When Minnesota couple Jeff and Diana Hall took a trip to La Paz, Mexico, they thought they were just going to have a nice vacation, dipping their toes into the surf and sipping on fruity, icy drinks in the shade. But, as avid animal lovers and owners of a doggy day camp in their hometown of Burnsville, they came across something they simply couldn”t ignore.
Homeless and hungry, a pack of 34 stray dogs and cats caught the couple”s heart.
They called the local shelter, but they were already at capacity and couldn”t take a single other animal.
After making sure they were well fed and hydrated, the Halls started a GoFundMe page in the hopes that they would find legal ways to get each and every one of the animals to a home in Minnesota.
How will they bring the 13 puppies, four dogs, and seven cats, dubbed the Baja 34, back home?
All of these animals are sweet as can be, with even the most originally standoffish pups coming around after they saw that the Halls were only there to help.
Every cent donated to the Baja 34 pack will go toward getting these animals into their forever homes…
The good news?
The not-so-good news…
The Halls are positive that each and every one of this crew will make a wonderful, loving pet, if they”re just given the chance to prove it!

The Baja 34 rescue fund is still a couple thousand dollars short of their goal, so if you”d like to help these Good Samaritans out, you can still pitch in! Even if you can”t be in Mexico to feed the animals, you can aid from afar!
What a wonderful initiative to save a group of friendly animals that would have otherwise remained homeless forever.
