Daiquiri Dick's 8th Annual Puerto Vallarta Pet Picnic

November 6, 2013

Daiquiri Dick's 8th Annual Pet Picnic on December 7th will include a costume contest, a raffle and all sorts of tail wagging surprises. All monies raised will be donated to PEACE Animals.

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - There's nothing better than a day at the beach with your best friend and if that best friend has four legs, that cannot be beat. Share a special afternoon with that buddy at the 8th Annual Pet Picnic in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

Daiquiri Dick's Restaurant will host this event. Join the fun on Saturday, December 7th starting at 11 am. There will be a costume contest, raffle and other surprises. The event will wrap up by 2 pm, with the costume contest starting at noon, so be prompt. Tickets cost $275 pesos in advance or $300 at the door. They can be bought at the restaurant, which is located at Olas Altas 314 on Los Muertos Beach on Vallarta's South side.

The price includes a boxed lunch with choice of sandwich and a doggie bag, beverages are extra. This event has grown over the years, so get your tickets early. Last year there were around 40 dogs with about double that amount for humans. The Pet Picnic was the first event in Banderas Bay that included all four-legged friends. It's worth seeing even if you do not have a dog. It is a great way to meet other animal lovers.

All proceeds will be donated to PEACE Animals. They have high volume, mobile, spay and neuter clinics in Jalisco and Nayarit. This program is grass roots and reaches out to those that cannot afford to go to the vet, and the service is free. PEACE Animals typically set up the clinics at homes, businesses, or government buildings in Banderas Bay area colonias. The clinics run three to four days and the vets can sterilize up to 25 companion animals per day. There are two vets performing the surgeries and one vet tech to assist, plus volunteers. They have performed around 4000 operations so far in 2013.

The mobile spay and neuter clinics prevent unwanted births, and reduce the number of dogs and cats on the streets hit by cars, poisoned, diseased or starving. Spaying and neutering also reduces or can eliminate many health problems and injuries that are difficult and/or expensive to treat. Additionally, the amount of male dog and cat fights are radically reduced. Humans are less likely to be injured by cats and dogs and communities are cleaner and safer. Many animal shelters in Mexico are not operating due to a lack of government funds, even though shelters are required by Mexican law.
