in 2013 Stasya Briggs and Mike Heiner bought and rebuilt a beautiful bed and breakfast in Barra de Potosi, Gro, Mexico, - Hacienda la Rusa. The property's purpose started to alter when Stasya and Mike rescued abandoned newly born kittens.

Inspired by the example of Playa Blanca residents, Donna & Shelley Juss and LaRae, who have been helping animals for a few years;
Stasya and Mike have started an animal welfare project Amigos de Animales of Barra de Potosi. from 2013 till 1016 Mike's and Stasya's hard work resulted in 700 animals sterilized and dozens and dozens rescued , fostered and adopted.
in 2016 Shelley Juss joined Amigos de Animales and ever since, two passionate ladies Shelley and Stasya have been tirelessly working on rescue, sterilizations and education

what Shelley and Stasya do :

* we pick up dogs & cats, take them to a local vet or SPAZ, pay for sterilization, return them back home or street
* we organize and pay for low cost or free spay and neuter programs and clinic
* we rescue, foster, treat, feed and vaccinate stray, hurt, abandoned animals
* we take animals we cant save to be euthanized and we stand by their side, providing last comfort
* we look for ways to transport animals up north where they have better chances to find a loving home

what you can do:

* donate, donate, donate - this project is supported by Stasya , Shelley and Mike and kindness of your donations
* organize a fundraiser or event of any kind to raise money to support the project
* foster or adopt or transport an animal up north, believe me, its easy!
