Shelter Update

In past years, we’ve had several hurricanes in October. This year we’ve been fortunate to have none…… but it’s been HOT!!! Mexican officials issued warnings about the unusual heat wave affecting much of this coast of Mexico for the last few weeks. We have ceiling fans in the casitas for those cats, but the yard cats look for cool places in the heat of the day….often on the cooler tiles of the ranch house porch. Combined with the high humidity, it’s tough on our staff and volunteers but that’s life in the tropics!

The PuRR Nursery

The nursery continues to be very full with over 50 kittens in line for adoption. Dr. Alberto continues to help Dra. Eva by coming one day a week to help catch up on spay/neuters. We only had fourteen kittens dumped at the shelter in October but we also had only three adoptions. One step forward and two steps back!! Every available casita and the clinic is being used for them.

Our masked kitten kuddler volunteers come on Thursday to give playtime to the little ones and help Dra. Eva in the clinic. All new cats and kittens get tested, bathed, dewormed and given some good kitten chow and a safe place to rest. Then they are given vaccinations if they are old enough. Mama Camilla accepted two new tiny orphans and is now nursing them plus her four!


Adoptions have been very disappointing the last two months. We had fourteen in August with the help of the special Kitten Adoption Event at PetCo. We are hoping to organize another one for a weekend later in November and will announce it on Facebook……please follow us! We bring a variety of beautiful, sweet kitties to the PetCo Adoption Center every Saturday morning for the weekend. So come check us out if you are looking for the purr-fect furry companion.
