When we were in Mexico we had met some really great people. There were so many of them. Today I want to talk about two people that I think are fantastic. Andy and Jen run the animal shelter in Playa del Carmen,Mexico. We had met them at the big Halloween party and arrange to go to the shelter and have a look and take some pictures. Well we didn’t know what to expect. Andy picked us up in his truck and I must say it was big compared to all the smaller vehicles in the town. I guess a full size pick-up truck does stick out a bit. We got to the shelter if you can call it that. It’s actually their home. All fenced in and dogs of all sizes and ages running around having a great time. We were greeted by a herd of puppies! I could see that they had their hands full. We sat and talked for a while and enjoyed watching the dogs play and chase each other till they were worn out and flopped down anywhere they felt was a comfy spot, which seemed to be a rubber mat that they all wanted to be on at the same time.
After a while another couple showed up. We sat and talked some more. We fell in love with every single dog, but if we could of, we would of taken Sophie home with us. Oh heck! We wanted them all! Even smelly George! We finally were ready to head back into town. Yes we smelled like George, but that was fine. I understand that Andy and Jen are working from donations and no real help from any government office as of yet. I think there is something in the works. So any help that can be given to them would help a lot.
Here is the link to the website they have…..clicky Please take a look and click on the ads so that they can make some money and if you feel that you can donate a few bucks please do! They really need all the help they can get.
They also need dog supplies like collars and leashes even toys. If you are planning on heading down there for a holiday please bring things with and let them know you want to donate. I know they would be very grateful.
