Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Here's the latest news from Purr Project, a non-profit, no-kill feline shelter located just north of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, that provides homeless cats and kittens a recuperative stay with the ultimate goal of adopting them out to loving homes sterilized, vaccinated and disease free.
Simona's Senior Center is finally done! A group of volunteers went out to check out the finished building and were very impressed. It is so airy and also easy to keep clean with the tiles walls and floors. We are now in the process of getting a quote to update the Nursery building... which a generous donor has offered to underwrite! More on that later.
