September: Virtual Adoption Month

September is the month we celebrate our Virtual Adoption cats!

These are usually older cats who have little hope of finding a Forever Home.

Many are very people-friendly and would make great companions. Others are feral or have a disability such as one eye or are deaf.

YOU can “Virtually Adopt” one of these felines for yourself or as a gift to a feline-loving friend for $120 a year (or $10 a month) and help us continue to give these adult cats a safe home and medical care for life.

You can learn how to virtually adopt and also meet all the candidates by going to our website at VIRTUAL ADOPTION or write us at

Photos: Gulliver is a big furry orange Tabby rescued from the Isla Cuale. Mama Big Eyes came with four tiny babies who have been adopted. Maybelline is a sweet calico with mascara marks around her eyes. Bianca is blind in her right eye from a cataract and is a bit shy.

Simona’s Senior Center

We are so happy to report that the goal to build a new casita for some of our aging felines has been met and exceeded!!

We broke ground on August 5th and expect to have the construction completed by mid-September.

With the extra pesos we can also tile and paint the three little isolation bungalows to make them more sanitary and easier to keep clean.

The PuRR Nursery

Last month we reported that we had almost 30 kittens in the PuRR Project Nursery.

As of today, it is over 40!

Crowding is going to become a big problem if adoptions continue to be very slow. (We may have to start another campaign to build a bigger nursery!!)

Part of the adoption problem is that there are so many kittens out there that need homes….with the shelters, vets and private citizens all begging for help.

The only long-term solution is SPAY/NEUTER!

Contact Linda at if you would like to give a FuRR-ever home to one of these sweet kittens.

Isla Cuale Free Clinic

The FREE Spay-Neuter Clinic on the Isla Cuale is still being held the first Sunday of each month.

PuRR Project will sponsor their next one on October 2nd. Being a sponsor means paying the vets $150 pesos for each animal……that’s the easy part!!

Actually volunteering your TIME to work these clinics is the hard (but very satisfying) part. Thank you to the PuRR folks who are always there to help out.

As of the August clinic, 372 cats and dogs have been sterilized in this new campaign!!

Gracis! Thanks! Merci!

Thanks to Marilyn Khan and Mundo de Azulejos for this great sign!

We want to thank the people who contributed to the Senior Center GoFundMe drive and the many others who sent money through PayPal or directly to PuRR Project USA.

Your amazing support has put a big smile on our faces!!

We especially want to say THANKS to the Richard Reed Foundation, Marty & Sharon Weber, Terri Levy, Charles and Carol McCullough, Trish Aljoe, Nina & Nosh Vellani and Richard Robertson for their generous contributions.
