Anna Ginsky picks up animals in San Diego then drives them through the U.S.-Mexico border so pet owners can take advantage of more affordable veterinary care in Tijuana without having to navigate the Western Hemisphere's busiest border crossing.

When Ginsky started the business in 2018, it was just a side gig. But the pandemic has actually caused her business to boom.

In a new bonus episode of KPBS’ border podcast Port of Entry, Ginsky takes us along on a few of her pet journeys and talks more about her cross-border business.

In this bonus episode, meet a woman who takes people’s pets from San Diego to Tijuana for more affordable veterinary care. It’s a story about the great lengths we’ll go to for our furry friends.

These are cross-border stories that connect us. Border people often inhabit this in-between place. From KPBS and PRX, “Port of Entry” tells personal stories from this place — stories of love, hope, struggle and survival from border crossers, fronterizxs and other people whose lives are shaped by the wall. Rooted in San Diego with tendrils reaching into Tijuana. Hosted by Alan Lilienthal, produced by Kinsee Morlan and sound design by Emily Jankowski.

  • Your curated weekly guide to local arts and culture in San Diego, from Arts Calendar Editor Julia Dixon Evans, delivered to your inbox every Thursday afternoon.
