While you’re staying in Cozumel, don’t miss the opportunity to help out animals in need of love, affection, adoption and even transportation to their ‘furever’ homes. There are SO many animals that are neglected, abused and unwanted.
When we are on the island, my son and I ALWAYS spend time at the shelter playing with the animals and bringing supplies. Yes, it’s hard to see those precious animals in a shelter environment. Yes, we always want to take all of our new four legged friends home with us. Yes, we always feel like we made a difference in those animals lives when we leave. It’s worth it. 🙂
Volunteer at the shelter. It is so important for the dogs and cats to get individual attention. You may walk the dogs or play with the puppies and cats everyday 11am to 1pm and 3pm to 4:30pm. Children must come with a responsible grown up.
Donate money or items. Find out what the Humane Society needs and bring those items to the shelter. Sometimes, they need things that are trash to us (old newspapers and towels). Sometimes they need dog food, cat toys, pet carriers or collars. Just give them a call to see what would be most useful. If you’re short on time, you may always donate money via their website.
Be a travel ambassador. Sometimes people in Canada or the United States will adopt a pet on the island and those guys need help getting to their new ‘furever’ home. You may assist by traveling with a pet back to your area. The new ‘parents’ will meet you at the airport and pick up their new ‘fur baby’. All paperwork is completed for you and there is no cost to you.
Adopt. If you fall in love with a new fur animal, the shelter will make sure you have all the paperwork in order for easy travel back to your country. There is NO quarantine time.
