November 6, 2017

Donations and fund raising events are the only source of financing to provide food, shelter and veterinary care for the 150 + cats and kittens at PuRR Project, a no-kill shelter located just north of Puerto Vallarta.

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Here's what's happening this month at 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.

Upcoming PuRR Project Events

Adoption Booth

PuRR Project volunteers returned to Daiquiri Dick's on Saturday, November 4 and will be there every Saturday through the season (except for the weekend of the Garage Sale, November 11th) with adorable kitties for adoption and lots of Logo T-shirts, 2018 Calendars and other goodies... including the new PuRR Project Shot Glasses, all of which make great Christmas gifts.


High Season is here and time for Kitty BINGO! The November dates are the 15th and 29th and then every other Wednesday through March. Cards go on sale at 4:30 at Margarita Grill (on the corner of Basilio Badillo and Piño Suarez in Old Town) and games start at 5:00. It's still only $100 pesos to play for lots of fun prizes when you get a BINGO and yell "MEOW!!" Plus Margarita Grill's special drink and snack menu just for us BINGO players!
