Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - MexPup has rescued over 700 sick, abused and/or abandoned street dogs in Puerto Vallarta since they began as an all-volunteer, Mexican-Canadian charity 7 years ago.
A typical MexPup rescue dog requires 2-3 months of intensive veterinarian intervention, care in a local foster home and hours of volunteer support, before it can be flown to British Columbia by a Guardian Angel. Once in Canada, the pup stays with another foster family for one to two weeks before it is adopted to an approved and loving family. MexPup follows up with each of these adopted pets to ensure they remain in a loving and responsible home for the rest of their lives.
"MexPup charges an adoption fee to offset expenses, but it's the fund raising activities in Canada and Puerto Vallarta that sustains our all-volunteer group and allows us to make a difference." said Patty Marchak, Founder & President of MexPup.
MexPup will be hosting its 7th annual fundraiser at the well-known Spanish school, The Spanish Experience Center, República de Chile #182, Col. Cinco de Diciembre, Puerto Vallarta on Wednesday, January 31 from 6:30 pm to 10:00 pm.
The event will feature tasty tacos, live music and entertainment, an instant raffle and a silent auction. The $300 pesos entry fee includes all you can eat tacos plus the live entertainment. A cash bar will also be available with all proceeds going to MexPup, so that this committed group of volunteers can continue to help the street dogs of Mexico.
Tickets can be purchased in advance for $300 pesos each at El Arrayán Restaurant, Cassandra Shaw Jewelry and the Spanish Experience Center. A limited number of tickets will be available for $350 pesos at the door.About MexPup
