Millions of dogs and cats roam the streets of Mexico, looking for shelter, food, and a kind human to save them from life on the streets. While rescuing and rehoming every homeless animal in Mexico, a country with an companion animal adoption rate of roughly 1%, is a massive project, we work alongside our many Mexican rescue partners to save one life at a time while preventing future generations of homeless animals through our spay/neuter clinics. Our 2019 goal is to provide free spay/neuter for 480 cats and dogs in Playa del Carmen, Mexico!
We know that providing spay/neuter for owned and street animals greatly improves two major animal issues in Mexico, overpopulation and homelessness! Preventing more puppies and kittens from being born to suffer and perish on the streets is our main mission in Mexico. PPR is funding clinics that offer free spay/neuter services to owners and rescuers of street animals, and providing a solution to companion animal homelessness.
When PPR started rescuing Mexico dogs in 2008, we partnered with Isla Animals on the island of Isla Mujeres. From there we grew our partnerships to include Coco’s Animal Welfare (Playa del Carmen) & Tierra de Animals (Cancun).
Our current clinic projects started in 2017 in the Cristo Rey neighborhood and in 2018 in the Inn-House neighborhood of Playa del Carmen, Mexico. Each month we provide free surgeries and vet care with the goal of fixing EVERY dog and cat in need!
In 2018 PPR created a Cancer Fund to cure dogs with TVT (Transmissible Venereal Tumor) cancer. This is the only contagious cancer and is spread by intact dogs – by spaying and neutering we can end the spread of this cancer, as well as cure afflicted dogs with just 6 weeks of chemotherapy for only $120!
