About Sanctuary Hostel

Sanctuary Hostel is an innovative nonprofit startup with the goal of creating an eco-hostel that supports community-based animal welfare, to address the stray animal crisis in Mexico. Our model plans to be self-sustaining in that we will not rely solely on donations and thus not be at risk of returning animals to the streets. We have the land and architectural designs, and are currently fundraising for construction of the facility. As we continue to grow, we expect to collaborate and work with other nonprofits in both Mexico and the US to achieve our mission. Visit www.sanctuaryhostel.org for more details.
