We got some tough news this week. Raicilla needs an operation for her hip because of avascular necrosis of the femoral head. The vet is going to do everything possible to help keep the costs down, but we expect a $1,000 to $1,300 bill for this surgery. If you would consider making a donation for Raicilla's surgery or participating in any MexPup fundraiser, we would really appreciate it. She needs our help and we want to be there for her.
Status changes deserve to be celebrated. Tobi - adoption pending, Chester - Adopted, Parche - adopted......yes, you read that correctly. We found some wonderful forever homes for some amazing pups. Thank you to the rescuers/PV foster moms, Marcella, Angeles & Sara, and to the Canada foster moms Janna, Diana & Cat, and to everyone that shared, supported, donated or did whatever they could. Don't you love happy endings!
Diana - airport greeter, pup welcoming committee extraordinaire - has completed her work and handed off Stanley & Tobi to Stephanie for their ferry ride to Vancouver Island. Thank you to all that make this possible. It takes contributions from so many people & we are always grateful for your support. YOU - if you are reading this, then you helped to make this happen. Stanley & Tobi are now proud Canadians and will never have to fear again. They will be valued members of a family.......don't we all love happy endings.
Our first blog post..... MexPup was officially launched in June of 2011. Since that time, we have rescued and placed 26 abused, abandoned and unwanted dogs, so as you can understand, we have spent the first few months running. We are barely staying stay ahead of the need and still trying to get better organized so that we can do more. There always are more dogs in need, but we have been blessed with the amount of support that we have received, and we continue to make a difference. We were hopeful in the beginning, but we didn’t have any idea just how many people cared & were willing to help us to make a difference for the street animals of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. MexPup is the sum of all of you that care, share our page, donate, volunteer, stop to help animals and do what you can to make a difference. I have met the most wonderful people in the past few months & know that I will continue to meet more. Humans that care about animal rescue are amazing, wonderful, caring, thoughtful, funny & interesting people. We are grateful for everyone’s support & continue to hope for a world with no homeless animals.
