Yvonneka Foundation is a dog’s best friend.

The dog on the road that has been hit and left to die will have care from Yvonneka Foundation.

The dog that lived in a house and that has been thrown on the street will have a home at Yvonneka Foundation.

The dog that no other rescuer or organization can keep will have a home at Yvonneka Foundation.

The dog that lives in the home as a family — we will do everything to make its owners responsible pet parents.

Yvonneka Foundation operates a shelter.

Dogs go out of a shelter only in two ways — they get adopted or they die.

Yvonneka Foundation is a home.

Dogs that come to us come to live a fulfilling life.

They will want for nothing — food, shelter, care and company.

Creating the resources to make that happen is the responsibility of each person who works at Yvonneka Foundation.

Everyone’s bills get paid after the dogs’ bills get paid.

If someone can’t put their weight behind the Yvonneka Foundation dogs they have no reason to be in Yvonneka Foundation.

Yvonneka Foundation believes that all dogs should be neutered — that includes all pet dogs and stray dogs.

Yvonneka Foundation is pro-life on mothers.

If a female dog is pregnant she will not be aborted.

If she has delivered, her babies are our babies.

Yvonneka Foundation will not euthanize a dog because we have no space, no resources, or not enough care.

NO veterinarian will ever make that decision for any Yvonneka Foundation dog. Ever.

The only valid reason to let a dog go is if that the dog is in insufferable pain AND has reached a point of no return.

For no other reason.

And that decision will ultimately be taken by the Yvonneka Foundation Founder until such time that the decision is deferred to someone else.

All decisions that Yvonneka Foundation makes — about raising funds, creating an organization, hiring people, hiring vendors and using technology has one single purpose — how do we make the lives of Mexican dogs better.

At the very centre of any decision are the dogs in our care.
Any decision that endangers them in the short term, and that does not provide them with a better long term future, is invalid.

Yvonneka Foundation does not exist to run businesses and make money to enrich shareholders.

Yvonneka Foundation and Yvonneka Foundation’s business exist to create the best ecosystem and infrastructure for Mexico’s dogs.

Yvonneka Foundation will always be a non-profit that runs these legitimate enterprises to create the resources available for Mexico’s dogs.

Yvonneka Foundation will always have the best canine talent in the country and internationally available for us to create these enterprises and deliver care for Mexico’s dogs.
