Eamon and I have been lucky enough to travel to Mexico in our van since 2018 and we've always been so sad to see the struggling stray dogs and puppies on the streets. We even fostered a sick puppy from Baja in 2019 and drove him back up to Canada where he's happily lived in his furever home for the last 4 years. So, when we met Alex and he said it was his dream to start a dog rescue here in Baja we knew we needed to help! 🐶 🐕 🐩

WOW the heart and passion that went into this is amazing. ❤🐶 I know first hand how much energy this takes physically and emotionally and can't say enough how awesome you all are. Thank you everyone involved in this and keep up the great work 💪
I absolutely love your rescue work as well. You and your wife are such an inspiration!
If you have Rockys big vouch - - You are going places !!! I see other big names going viral for this !!
@Heidi we got the same name!
I love it
Thank you so much for taking the time to check in on our project Rocky! Big love to you and all you do 💜
I almost stopped watching this episode because I was crying about those poor puppies, but I thought “wait a minute, this is Eamon & Bec, it’s bound to have a happy ending” and you did not disappoint. What a wonderful project!! Cheers to a successful CBD!
As a fellow mexican my country is beautiful but we lack empathy for animals so thank you from the bottom of my heart❤️
I don't like to look at it as a lack of empathy, but instead as a lack of education on the needs for the animals
Yes ! Mexico has the most stray dogs, is it good to see more people helping them
@Michelle Chavarria There are a lot in South America and India, and of course many other places.
This was just amazing guys.
To turn all of that around in 30 days - we were rooting for you! 🎉
Your hearts are so SO big. It’s one of the main things we love about you. Couldn’t help but she’d a little tear when you opened. We’re so proud of you AND your incredible team! - each and everyone of you - You’ve saved those dogs lives and many many more to come. THANK YOU ❤
Yesss! I agree! Just as you guys do!❤
@Tamara Kelli excellent!
Is this not the truest meaning of --
Congrats, good luck, and God bless.
You're wonderful humans. I've spent a lot of time in Baja and the sick and injured strays are heartbreaking. It's amazing, not only to see how much you're helping the dogs, but to see you bring together others from the community, to accomplish a shared dream. We need more of this in our world :)
As a fellow Canadian, I am so proud of you guys! I rarely comment on these types of forums, but the effect of building a dog shelter in a poor community is so tangible and the effects long term and lasting, it just has to be applauded! Well done to you all and to all who contributed to the planning, building, etc.!
Led me to think
So amazing to see this work being put in.
when bec was getting emotional opening up the gates made me so emotional! this makes me so proud of this community I can’t even describe it x
How many times have I cried with you, Bec? But this time! So much joy and gratitude! ❤❤❤❤❤❤ Fantastic work, Eamon and crew!
I needed this video from you guys. As I’m stuck in the hospital as I almost died from a flesh eating bacteria. Laying here in the hospital feeling dejected, I needed you guys so thank you. I feel a connection to Bec, I’ve also beat cancer(kidney). You guys energy and love are helping pulling me back in. Thank you and I love you guys
Hang in there Shawn!!
Feel better ❤
Send you so much love and good healing energy Shawn 💜 !!!!
You’ve got this
Feel better soon!
This is so amazing!! It‘s one of our dreams saving and helping animals sometimes like you did it! Thank you so much 🙏🏼
The audacity that other people think that they get to message you and tell you how you should serve. Don't worry about those people... I'm willing to bet they aren't doing anything for anyone. But THANK YOU for taking care of these pups. It truly warms my heart! 😊
I dont understand how anyone can be angry about you guys establishing a dog shelter, they are in such vulnerable conditions. Thank you for contributing. ❤️Take care
The dog shelter is not upsetting. What boggles my mind is that outsiders think it’s okay to come in and establish themselves and not care about the consequences. I was thrilled even donated because Mexico needs dogs shelters but when I saw overnight oats were prices at 170 I found that upsetting. How are you going to charge 170 pesos when daily min wage is 200 pesos. I get it if you can’t afford it don’t buy there but that’s what is making Mexico as expensive as in the US. 170 pesos is close to $10 in Mexico?! Come on.
I got fired for needing a night off to bury my dog in January. My boss said dogs aren't human and I shouldn't care.
Some people just simply aren't human.
Saving the animals saves us all!
If you cannot afford a days pay then don't adopt one because then you'll never be able to afford food and vet care.
I sat on my couch with my 5 month old puppy asleep on my chest SOBBING through this whole thing. I immediately went to buy a shirt and they're sold out (which makes me so happy!) Thank you for being the beautiful humans you are and for doing something so beautiful and selfless for those pups ❤
Eamon and Bec, I cannot even explain how happy you guys make me. Your videos, combined with your dedication and determination makes for amazingly content. You guys are truly gifts from heaven! Thank you for everything you do ❤
Thank you guys for taking such good care of the dogs AND the people in this video. I'm sorry you're getting some people saying hurtful things. I think it is ABUNDANTLY clear how much you care about people and ALL other creatures. ❤
I work at a homeless shelter for kids, and I love what you guys are doing for the doggies. Everyone has their calling. Pick one. There are many. Not everyone has to do what I do, and I don't have to rescue puppies. Just do good!
Thank you for taking care of those without a voice, and bringing laughter and love to those of us that watch your channel! You are not just a lover of dogs, you are clearly invested in helping your audience as well by sharing your joy, struggles, coping mechanisms and tools for enriching your lives. I am thankful for you both! Big hugs to the team!
Girl! Do not listen to all of the negatives because there will always be those out there that try to tear you down. In helping the puppies you are helping those that cannot help themselves, if other people cannot see that then that says A LOT the type of human beings they are. I love that you are doing this and supporting Alex in getting this off the ground!
Exactly!!!! You said it❤️❤️❤️❤️
You couldn’t have said it any better 😊 honestly people are so mean. I hope you know it makes me and many others so happy when you help animals!❤️
The world needs more people like you that are willing to step in and help when they see something so sad. Thank you.
SO BEAUTIFUL!! love seeing humans get together, have fun and help animals!!
This literally made me cry so much. I’m currently in High School stuck at home with covid doing my Vet Science Certification so I can be a vet and I just passed it. Congratulations to you guys and me:) much love ❤️
Its great to see you helping strays, what wonderful people🐕🐶
As a Mexican it breaks my heart everytime i see stray dogs!! You guys are amazing people and keep doing what you’re doing❤️❤️ orgullosa de ustedes!!
Smiled ear to ear throughout the whole video! This is such an amazing project & you can tell it’s so special for everyone involved 🙌🏼 Sooo worth all the hard work and long days!
Thank you all for doing this 💛 This is the type of content Clip-Share should be pushing to the masses.
Can’t wait to rock my Cerritos dog beach shirt 💁🏻♂️
Another doggy van lover and yourtuber !!! YAAS
AWE thanks Maxy!! Means so much to us both (actually to all of us!!). There is no greater job than getting to the cafe each morning and saying hello to all our puppies! can't wait for you to come visit sometime so soon!!!
I don’t think you guys will ever see this… but I’ve been watching since the very beginning and I just want to tell you guys how unbelievably proud I am of you guys💗 the smiles you bring to everyone, the compassion you have for others and how extremely generous you guys are🥰 you guys did amazing and brought tears to my eyes, great job!! thank you for always making me smile thru your videos 💗
Such a cool video ! I love that you guys are taking care of animals who desperately need the help.
You guys made this 70 year-old cry like a baby (pure tears of joy and love). I love your enthusiasm, your humanity and you are probably the two most positive people I’ve ever seen. I wish you the best success, and if I could have a puppy I would adopt one for sure. Keep going and growing. ❤❤
Projects like these heal the human heart in ways the world can not touch, from the people that volunteer to build the project to the people that get to adopt the little joy full souls you rescue. Believe me u are doing more for humanity that any finger gangster can understand. Love u guys so much💗
So many smiles in this one vid.. Thanks a lot E&B!.. now my face hurts. We adopted 9 y/o Magpie, who needed a forever home, almost three years ago. We were worried about how old she was, but she is easily one of greatest things to happen to our family. It was the height of the fear of that stupid virus, and my wife was sent home to work. We had recently lost our boy Louie (in my channel pic) after 12 years, so she was stuck at home alone, in her spare bedroom-basement-office, all day. She was not thriving, to say the least. We may have adopted her, but Magpie saved US. We may only have her for a short while, but the level of sweetness and fun, and joy and love that she brings is immeasurable. Don't be afraid of adopting an older dog, y'all... (what the h, I never say "y'all"-??) you will never regret it. If you're thinking about it...Do it. P&L, D
Aside from Bec announcing she was cancer free; this is the most emotional and best video you have produced. The dogs are so precious, the community support, the beautiful cafe. WOW! You guys have out done yourselves. Oh, and a shout out to Bob, it was great seeing you. I hope to see more of you in future videos!
Street dogs aren't "precious". People! People are precious.
@Chirpy Mike All animals are "precious"
@Queen Panduh people are more precious than animals. This virtue signaling BS won't do one bit of difference, other than make these 2 feel better. Prove me wrong.
@Chirpy Mike please change your name from chirpy to negative mike!
Good Luck with your very positive project ❤
I cried like a baby watching this to see the love of the community coming together for such a cause is beautiful. Eamon and Bec thank yall for being such amazing people catalyzing change around the world and bringing us along. I truly wanna be like yall when u grow up.❤❤❤
Yalls videos always make me smile. I was losing faith in humanity but this was such a beautiful example that people care and other will support you. Thank you, and thank you for helping these pups have a better life
WOOOOW, as a vet tech this hits hard ! Just LOVE to see you guys working this hard for a project you are passionate about and all these pups getting good care ! Sad tough that I could'nt get myself a T-Shirt, please put more up for sale soon *fingers crossed*
The fact that there are people who have an issue with what you guys are doing or who you are doing it for, says more about them & the lack of kindness they may have endured in their life. Every living being deserves love & compassion! You guys are AWESOME, COMPASSIONATE & INSPIRING people! Keep up the amazing work!
Thank you for helping all these babies. I have a soft spot for animals and the hard part about travelling is seeing so many stray, sick or hungry ones I can't help. This small act of kindness can change their lives in a big way. Good on you for being so kind for those who don't have a voice
The people telling you you should “care more for people” or whatever are the ones who could be doing something to help people themselves. This is so awesome what you guys are doing , such a need to help the dogs in MX. ❤️
EXACTLY. They can't solve every problem in every factor of life. They have a passion for animals and this is something they feel they can do! I'm sure with Bec's medical journey this past year, they have also done things to help people who were going through similar things. Anything you can do is great! I'm so happy to see you making a difference for these poor innocent animals.
I love what you guys are doing. Unfortunately, I have seen some people (not you guys). Bond with animals such as the family pet, while at the same time being neglectful and or abusive to the people in their lives. That’s hard to watch too, BUT, you don’t fix that problem by neglecting the pets as well!?!?? You guys follow your passion regardless of the naysayers. Stay positive and enjoy life!
Plus people can get jobs .. dogs can't. Duh!
Caring for animals is caring for people .. many will connect because of this
@Melissa Shannon Agreed! Greetings from Poland 🇵🇱 and my channel!
You all are true Angels from Heaven helping those furbabies. Congratulations on moving mountains in such a short time. I hope that CBD will continue to prosper and grow over the years!
Blessings to you!
What a beautiful heart project! Not only are you helping the stray dogs in this community, but also the hearts of this community that will not be scratched and wounded with no hope. And im talking about the human fraction.
Congratulations 🎉🎈 🎊 🎉 This video made me cry happy tears. What you have achieved in short a short time is testimony to the amazing community of people who have rallied together for the love of dogs. ❤ 🐾
Wow wow wow. Definitely had a few years watching this. You guys are so incredible. How you love people, animals and the world is so beautiful. And if anyone is gonna get mad about you helping dogs then they’re the kind of people that want to pick apart anything anyone does. I get how you feel though, I’m a very emotional person so I would take those comments hard too. But we can’t take criticism from people we wouldn’t take advice from. You’re incredible people. Don’t ever let anyone make you think otherwise 💛
What an incredible achievement, I am so emotional watching this and seeing not only what you’ve created in 30 days but the hope and amazing lives you’re giving the pups! Also, don’t let anyone get you down, you’re giving helpless animals a voice and that is a truly impactful and kind thing to do 🐾❤
We just adopted a dog at four and I just want to say that you guys are doing an amazing thing for the community I hope it goes smoothly well done guys
Eamon & Bec... You guys give me so much hope for this world. Your kindness and hearts are AMAZING!!! I don't know what to say. All the love you guys give is so heart warming and contagious. Keep spreading love Bec and don't listen to all the naysayers your heart is in the right place. Sending all the love your way.
This is the first vid I have ever seen from this channel and this is absolutely amazing ❤ it is so cool that you guys saw a problem and went and helped and made it happen. So many amazing doggies are going to live good lives because of you guys❤
Hey Bob! Amazing what can happen when good people put their minds together on a common goal. Well done, people.
This is amazing. Thank you for what you are doing for those dogs. The world needs more Eamon and Bec’s👏🏻🤗❤️
Ahh thank you so much Britt! 💛💛💛
Such an awesome experience being able help out with this amazing project, wish we were able to stay in Mexico longer and help out more and meet the pups plus see the opening of the cafe/shelter . We will definitely be back to Baja next year and can't wait to stop by and visit Cerritos Beach Dog cafe! ♥
This is so inspiring. I just finished treatment for cancer too… and it’s so heartwarming and beautiful to see you THRIVING after cancer. You both are shining so bright.
Thank for building this for the dogs and sharing it with us. Sending love from Los Angeles 💜💛
I don't even know where to start, I'm just soooo proud of you both. I follow you for so long and I've seen you gone through so many experiences, hurdles, victories, struggles, joy, loss,happiness, growth. I cried tears of joy with this video, thank you for all you do. Your love gives me hope and your love makes waves expanding throughout the world. I love you both. CONGRATULATIONS! Blessings forever and ever. ❤❤❤❤
I can't imagine a better couple and group of driven people to establish this anywhere in the world. The biggest and quietest thanks you could receive is from the dogs. I'm a huge dog person. Nothing I wouldn't do for them. This my most favorite project you guys did. *LOUD APPLAUSE* Thank you!
47 minutes of video and yet I didn’t want it to end! What a beautiful thing you guys did there! Thank you for helping the dogs! ❤️❤️❤️
I didn't want it to end either. I could have watched it all day!
Love this comment!!! I feel exactly the same! Crying here at 3am
@Mandas Scents agreed! Beautiful. Hello from Poland and my channel 😊
Wow! Just wow. I love dogs and all types of animals and watching you guys struggle for the dogs is amazing. Those dogs deserve to have a home and to be loved by a loving and caring family who can look after them for as longs as they can. Thanks for everything you've gone through to help those poor animals who need your help in the roughest of times.
😢 all the poor babies getting your help and love thank goodness. YALL DID AMAZING. BE SO SUPER PROUD. so many amazing beautiful souls on this project and just doing good! proud and happy for y’all and the doggos 💗
Thank you for savings these pups! The abandoned animals situation in third world countries is so out of control... I'm from Brazil. It's incredibly sad. There aren't any kind of City or county shelters - it's all up to independent rescues like these amazing people in the video. Please consider donating to third world country rescues 🙏🏻 instant follow to you guys!
I cried so much watching this. Animals are so pure and innocent. That’s why you do what you do because these animals don’t have voices, you are their voice. Thank you so much, makes my heart melt
So beautiful to see all of this coming together. Thank you for caring for the pooches!!!
I didn't think I could love this channel anymore than I already do. You guys brought tears to my eyes!!!! This is such a huge issue in the warmer climates especially!! Thanks for always being a great example, and for continuing to spread love and joy in this very sad world.
the amount of warmth and love in this video is unreal
I love what you are doing! When I visited the Philippines for 3 months, I fed a bunch of the stray cats every day. You follow your passions and don’t let the haters get to you too much (but I totally understand how you feel Bec). You bring life to a community, and the community grows and helps each other. Love you guys ❤
So beautiful! Thank you for helping these 4 legged angels 💜
As the dog mom of a Mexi mutt from Puebla, thank you so much for what you've done 🥰 Remember to spay and neuter your pets!! And adopt, don't shop! ❤
Thank God for you, Eamon & Bec. Thank you very much for giving them a second chance at life. You both are angels on earth, there should more people like you.
God bless you both 🙏
You guys are doing great things! The cafe is a genius way to help get dogs seen and adopted! Thank you for helping animals who cannot help or speak for themselves!
Oh my tears, they just won't stop! You guys should be so so so proud of everything you do! So amazing! Now to book my flight to visit CBD
I love you guys even more now. I honestly haven’t been wanting to travel to places with homeless dogs and cats, because I would want to bring them all home 😢.
Thank you so much!!! 💜
Bob, you are awesome too!!!
I’m bummed I didn’t get here on time to buy one of those cool tshirts 😔. I’m hoping you’ll do another run……..
Oké straight up this must be the best and most uplifting video I've ever watched. It takes some special people to be willing to put in the work. Dream up this vision and wow what you have made together.... So f ing amazing. So glad others get to see the process and just how you guys operate. Have loved your guyeses videos for years. But showing the world this is going to be so inspiring to many. As it is to me too. Don't just sit around and dream. Dreaming is amazing. But just get up and do it!! So much love to you guys. And everyone involved. So cool what you've built together. I hope I can come visit one day 😍
I'm truly so grateful for this channel! It really feels like we're there with you. You guys are amazing!!
What AMAZING people you are ❤️❤️ We’ve rescued 4 dogs so far and intend to keep on rescuing until we can’t rescue any more xx love from Spain x
Not a dry eye in our house after this episode. Thank you, Thank you for being the voice for these amazing puppies and dogs. Every single one of you that helped bring this vision to fruition are heroes in our book! It truly takes a village! Love you guys! ♥️
You guys and all your amazing friends are the best of humanity. Much love to you all💜
omgosh this is so amazing! I’m in tears! Thank you guys for all your amazing work and effort!
You are amazing! Those dogs are so lucky to have you! And the community will be enhanced! bless all your hearts!
This is amazing!! Made me cry! Thank you for helping those beautiful dogs ❤
You guys are awesome. Your intentions are pure and you are putting out good into the world. That's the important piece here. Yiu cant please everyone. Keep on keeping on.... 😊
Eamon and Bec thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making the world a better place and for helping those puppers!!! Emense gratitude for you both❤️❤️❤👏
So we are all crying right? You all are amazing and so inspiring 👏🏻❤️
Oh, my heart. I love you guys so much. This is the most amazing thing any youtubers have ever done, ever. You are helping helpless strays to get healthy and find homes and that is so incredible. Wishing this rescue all the best. Big hugs.
You guys are amazing at what you do! This made me so excited and inspired to be a world changing human like y’all.
I just love you guys! It's high time someone thinks of & does something for the animals! Please do keep doing & being who you are!
What a beautiful and heartfelt video! The heart and soul put into this is absolutely glowing from everyone! ❤🙏🏼 hopefully one day I’ll be able to go visit CBD! ❤️
I cried not only for the puppies and doggies BUT BECAUSE OF THE LOVE...THE LOVE BROUGHT ME TO TEARS...then I went and donated. God bless this entire endeavor. You folks are rock stars !!! ❤❤❤
Thank you so much for your love and support! Means so much! 🥰💛🥰💛
I just want to say that not only are resources continuously expended on the people, as if we dont have hundreds of thousands helpless animals who are incapable of helping themselves the way a human can.
Thank you for sharing that, being someone who is apart of the animal industry and will forever support our rescues, it really gave insight into what the uninformed may assume.
Im glad i found you guys, i’ll be here in continuation of support 🤍 you’re doing all of the things I hope to achieve one day.
This is so amazing!! Woah but you guys are so awesome and congratulations to such an awesome accomplishment in a way! 🙂🙂
Lifetime dedicated to Animal Rescue, right here .... so I applaud each and everyone of you ❤❤❤❤❤
So awesome! That is what I want to do in Mexico. Mexico is so beautiful, but it is so hard to enjoy being there with all of the stray animals. Bravo to you!!!
This makes me SO happy and heart SO full ❤ Proud of you humans ❤ Those pups have been reborn
WOW I am truly blown away by this episode,Eamon,Becca & all the beautiful people that rallied along with you.I had tears running down my face every time I saw those dogs tails wagging & to see the change in them in just12 days.It is AMAZING what you all accomplished in such a short time.Thank you from the bottom of this dog loving girls heart for doing this and all the hard work!You both are just the most beautiful souls & I love you for it!I will definitely be ordering a t shirt!!Thank you Thank you Thank you❤ 🐾 I love you guys so much ❤
I cried throughout the whole video. First because how bad the dogs were and happy because the dog will be rescue and how happy and sweet the puppies are!
Could feel how much joy this brought to all of you! So wild, but so awesome what you all managed to pull off!
This is so amazing. Thank you for always making it about others. We all love you for that. Your passion and drive for everything you do is an inspiration. God bless you both. And what a gift it is that your recovery has started so many good things for so many others. ❤
When you don’t see the video til day three and can’t buy a shirt 😭 This work is just incredible. You two continue to be massive inspiration to us all. 💛
this is an absolutely beautiful, kindhearted story. Thank you for sharing this experience and being so kind to stop and do this. I'm thankful that there are people in this world with the freedom and the skills and the big hearts that you guys have to use that to help others
You are all epic!! May you and the dogs have many blessings in the days ahead. This is how the world changes. xo
That was one of the most inspiring videos I have ever watched. Amazing work everyone!!! I cried too many times, mostly happy tears. :) Thank you to all who created this very special rescue. And yes, good to see Bob again.
I watched this just waiting to come for vacation and I thought it was gonna be like your house video but it wasn’t, this made my heart warm up so much ❤😢. When I was on vacation so many dogs were on the street walking around and I could see there bones, when I saw this it made me cry I wish people could be this kind and do this all over the world😊
It breaks my heart seeing all these dogs being abandoned and abused in this video for me there was a lot of tears and a lot of happiness so I just want to say thank you for caring love y’all and no one I mean no one deserves to say something rude about this people need to picture themselves as the dog that is abused and abandoned and starving ❤
This is incredible! I just donated ❤ Just wondering if you’ll be providing spay/neuter for your shelter dogs, since I know that helps with the stray population overall? Thanks for doing such beautiful work!
Love what you guys are doing? So kind and generous. Heart warming!
What a beautiful and wonderful thing you are doing for our sweet and loving furry friends! Thank you for caring for them! What a huge calling! God bless! ❤
