Target: Angelique Schornstein, President of The Amigos de los Animales de Todos Santos
Goal: Thank Ms. Schornstein for saving stray animals from unnecessary death.
In Todos Santos, Baja, Mexico, stray dogs and cats were shot as a form of animal control. This all changed thanks to one woman, Angelique Schornstein. When Schornstein first moved to the neighborhood, she was shocked to hear the gunfire. Once she understood why there was gunfire, she decided to take matters into her own hands.
Schornstein set up free spay and neuter clinics with the help of friends, which is now called The Amigos de los Animales de Todos Santos. These clinics have been going on for some years now and the results are very impressive. In the most recent clinic, 151 animals were spayed and neutered including 82 female dogs, 37 male dogs, 16 females cats and 16 male cats. This is a huge difference compared to the first clinic when Schornstein rounded up 16 cats herself to be spayed and neutered. The amount of stray animals has dropped drastically and the health of the animals has improved. The town no longer shoots strays due to the great success of the spay and neuter clinics.
Sign the petition below to thank Schornstein for all her hard work and dedication with the Amigos de los Animales de Todos Santos, and for helping to save the lives of countless animals.
Dear Ms. Schornstein,
When you first moved to Todos Santos, Baja, Mexico, you were shocked to learn that your neighbors’ way of population control was to shoot stray dogs and cats. Instead of turning a blind eye to this, you decided to take action.
Throughout the years your organization has grown into a huge success. The number of strays has dropped so drastically that the town no longer shoots the homeless animals. In addition to this, veterinarians that work for your organizations have noticed a great improvement in the animals’ health.
It is amazing to see all the good one person can do. You have saved countless lives with your spay and neuter program. Hopefully more towns will take your lead and set up spay and neuter clinics. Thank you for all the hard work and dedication that you have put into this program.
[Your Name Here]
