Help us spay and neuter all the street dogs!!!

ALL YA GOTTA DO IS VOTE!!!!!! It's free!!! It only takes a few seconds!!! You don't have to join anything!! You don't even have to give your email address!!!

Hola Y'all!!
Just this week we have been able to round up 7 dogs and have them spayed/neutered!! YAAAY!!!!!!!!!!!

Did you know that a female dog and her offspring can produce 67,000 puppies in just six years???? WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That's a LOT of puppies!!! And most of them will be without homes. There's just not enough homes to go around!!!!
Anyway, me and Mom did the arithmetic and with just these 7 dogs we have helped stop
469,000 street dogs from being born!!!!!

We're still competing in the petfinder/animalrescuesite shelter challenge so you folks PLEASE go vote for us every day through April 16th!!!
The prize is $1,000.00 and that will spay and neuter LOTS of street animals!!!
It will also help to buy food for the animals here in our care!!! You can check some of them out on our last post. Me and Mom did a video of the kids playing.

Just go to and click on "shelter challenge" Then type in lighthouse for the shelter name and click on Costa Rica for the country.
Click "search" and wait for our name to come up. THEN VOTE FOR US!!! Be sure to wait for your vote to be confirmed!!!!

Me and Mom Did a New Video!!

Buenos Dias Y'all!!!

We're waggin' our butts off around here at Lighthouse!! We got 6 more furbabies "fixed." yesterday!!! WHOOOO HOOOOO!!!!! That can mean THOUSANDS of unwanted puppies will not get born.
Mom says a female dog can make LOTS of babies in her lifetime...and then you have to count all the puppies her female puppies will make!! AND!!! Us boy dogs can make WAY more than that!!!! It can be in the THOUSANDS!!!
Mom says that's why there are so many street dogs. Nobody cares enough to round them up and have them "fixed."
And lots of OWNED dogs don't get spayed or neutered either!! Mom says that is where the street dogs come from. The dog gets pregnant and the owner doesn't want the responsibility of so many dogs so they dump the mama dog AND the puppies and then THEY all go make puppies!!!!!! They never even consider the fact that if they spayed the mama dog she would never make those unwanted babies.
Anyway, we're working on slowin' down the population explosion the best we can. WHEW!!!! It's a lot of work!!!

We're still needing votes in the shelter challenge. You guys have kept us in second place and that's GREAT!! There is a thousand dollar grant for 1st and 2nd place this time so even in second we'd still get a grant!!!
We're startin' to get a little worried though cause another international shelter is gaining on us!! And that mexican shelter that is in first place is WAY ahead of everybody else!! They're even in the top ten OVERALL!!!!!!!!! Man!! I wish WE could get that many votes!!! There's a chance we could win one of the TOP prizes if we could do that!!! But we'd still be thrilled to win second place in the international category!!! Mom says that would spay and neuter LOTS of dogs and cats and prevent a lot of furbabies from being homeless!!!!!

Me and Mom just put together another video!! We thought you folks might like to see it so we added it to this post!!

AND PLEASE DON'T FORGET TO VOTE!!! Go to and click on shelter challenge. Then type in lighthouse. Click on Costa Rica for country. "Search" for our name and then click VOTE then wait for the vote confirmation thing to come up so your vote will count!!
