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.
September is Virtual Adoption Month
Featured Feline: Sahara
This beautiful lady with the big blue eyes was abandoned by her family when they moved from their condo. Because she was declawed and could not defend herself, she suffered some serious injuries. Under Dra. Eva's care she is completely healed and now lives in the Senior Center with Simona and Caliope... but we hold out hope that she will one day find her Forever Home! Contact Linda at adopt(at)purrproject.com if you are interested in adopting or Virtually Adopting one of our senior felines.
2018 Purr Project Calendar
This year it's the Kitten Edition and the cover features Mía Flora (My Flower) which is appropriate as it is filled with beautiful flowers... and kittens! It makes a Purr-fect holiday gift for your cat-loving friends and family, so don't wait to order. If you are in Vallarta, you can get yours at our Saturday Adoption Booth at Daiquiri Dick's starting in November.
Isla Cuale Free Clinic
PuRR Project will be sponsoring the monthly FREE Spay Neuter Clinic on Sunday, October 1st. Sponsored by different animal organizations and individuals, an average of 75 dogs and cats are spayed each month, saving thousands of unwanted births each year. It's a lot of work and very satisfying! If you are interested in volunteering your time, materials or pesos, contact Glenda at gbland101(at)gmail.com for information. We always need animals carriers for the day plus cardboard boxes, dog collars & leashes, bottled water, snacks, hand sanitizer or soap & paper towels.

If you are planning to be in Vallarta this year, mark your calendar and come join us for a couple of hours of fun, prizes and GREAT margaritas!
SHELTER TOURS: Escorted tours to the PuRR Project Shelter will begin on Wednesday, November 22 and continue every-other Wednesday through March. The schedule will soon be posted on our website where you can get all the information on times and Shelter Tour pick-up points... and also make your reservation and pay through PayPal!

Gracias! Thanks! Merci! Danke! Arigato!
But they were really drawn to some of the older cats living in the yard and surprised us when they decided to take 5 of them back to Minnesota. Four will go to the Angel of Hope Animal Rescue, which found homes for over 1,100 felines last year. The fifth, Max, was adopted on the spot by Taryn. (Pause 4 Paws is the group that transported and re-homed 76 Vallarta cats last Spring with their "Gotta Getta Gato" campaign. WOW and MEOW!)
