How Can You Resist Puppies?

Remember the other day how I posted about Helping Cancun’s Animals? Well, I went over to the RAP facility last week and took photos of some of the puppies they have up for adoption now.

I couldn’t talk to RAP’s director, Maria Alicia, because at the time of our visit she was out saving the life of a pregnant dog that had just been hit by a car.

When I was there they had about 20 puppies in all sizes and colors. They also had something in the range of 45 to 50 adult dogs (and I didn’t meet a single one that I didn’t like).

These two are part of a litter of 9 pups that were dropped off while I was there helping out one day. They are beyond cute.

The sole purpose of this post is to nag my friends and readers to help find good homes for the puppies and dogs currently at RAP. RAP needs to get their dogs adopted so that they can free up space to rescue more of the starving and injured dogs we all see everyday in Cancun.

Here’s one of their brothers, another cute one.

This little guy almost came home with me, I just love those eyes. But I need more land before I get more dogs.

These guys were really hard to photograph because they wouldn’t stop playing! Most of my photos of them are just a blur of cute puppy fur.

Ok, have I pulled enough heart-strings yet? Please do what you can to help. You know you want a doggie!

This little guy was at the bottom of the pile of puppies, I finally got a photo of him when he managed to get out from under his siblings.

You can contact Maria Alicia to make an appointment to meet all the dogs and puppies she has up for adoption. Her number is (998) 206-0056 and she is fluent in both English and Spanish.

    Wow, too cute. I just had a chat with hubby about how we should get a little dog and name him “Grande” so we have the big black lab named “Chico” and the little lap dog named “Grande.” He wasn’t nearly as excited about it as I was… we’ll see how the year progresses.

    I do have to say that the dogs here are really cute. There’s one street dog that everyone here in Playa knows- he’s white with a curled tail and a reddish nose and light brown eyes. Really cute. Some friends tried to take him in and he totally turned down the chicken soup they offered him (it was all they had).

    Mexpat – Yes, cute is the point. I’m really hoping I can generate some adoptions for RAP. They have too many dogs and not enough resources.

    I’ve seen street dogs turn their nose up at would-be rescuers. It can be very frustrating, but what can you do?

    I just came home from vacationing in Cancun, Mexico and while there I saw a dog that was so malnurished and dirty. I fed him 2 Johnny Rocket burgers and 2 big bottles of water, while 10 workers on a job site in front of a Hotel laughed and teased me because they knew I didn’t speak spanish. They just stood by while the dog was seeking the smallest bit of shade that he could find. He is very skinny, dirty, and dying of the heat and is in need of some serious medical attention. I want to take him back to New York, where I live. If I came back to Mexico and found him, where could I take him to get medical attention before bringing him on a plane?

    Kelly – We can help you find a vet to give you the papers to get the dog back to the U.S. No big deal. Maria Alicia at RAP Cancun (see above in my post) can help you or I could help. Finding the dog is the problem.
