Helping Cancun’s Animals

I want to spread the word a bit about two charities that are working together here in Cancun to rescue animals and help animals find good adoptive homes. The first is Respeta, Ayuda y Protege, which in English means respect, help and protect (it’s called RAP for short). And the second is called CANDi, which stands for Cats and Dogs International.

The two groups have teamed up recently on a campaign called Project Cancun under which they will be starting a spay and neuter clinic among other things. In the mean time the two groups are busy getting their new facility up and running. And they are also caring for more than 60 dogs they have rescued from the streets of Cancun.

Here are their web sites:

I will be writing more about these groups and this project in the future. In the mean time please send them lots and lots of money and volunteer to help them if you can.

    I’m so happy to know about these groups, and even happier to know that you are getting the word out!

    I swear, I cry every time you post pictures of that beautiful boy you took into your home.

    I’ve never been to the perrera in Cancun, and don’t think I could…even thinking of the babies there makes me feel like weeping.

    There are a lot of people here working to help animals. But from what I can see RAP and CANDi are making a real difference.

    We went to RAP today to take photos of the puppies they’ve got up for adoption. I’ll be blogging about that soon.

    Thanks for you comment.

    HI,this horrible cause of killing animals is horrible because the animals are part of the earth,and the earth is ours and animals plus plants too.Even GOD said:frutify and reproduce the birds from the sky,and and every little thing that is in the floor.And as humans we need to ddo that as GOD said so!
