Arno K. Naumann, the founder and long time leader of Amigos de Animales passed away yesterday, October 20, 2021. Arno founded Amigos de Animales in 2001 and worked tirelessly to develop and grow programs designed to reduce the suffering of cats and dogs in San Miguel de Allende. Our mission, to reduce cat and dog overpopulation and suffering through sterilization was at the heart of Arno’s vision. We are proud that through Arno’s dedication we have sterilized more than 23,000 cats and dogs in our 20 years of operation.
Our board of directors takes its inspiration from Arno and will continue to advocate for our mission. Our gratitude to Arno for his work for the animals of San Miguel de Allende will always remain.
