PuRR Project is a non-profit, no-kill feline shelter located just north of Puerto Vallarta 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.
Like most of the world, we are still in a state of shock at recent events and trying our best to figure out things on a day-to-day basis. The governor of Jalisco ordered a state-wide “Stay at Home” mandate on March 21, along with restrictions on bars, restaurants, theaters and other places where crowds can gather, and schools have been closed for several weeks.
Regardless, we still have to purchase and deliver supplies to the shelter each week. So far, there has been no shortage of kibble, litter and basic cleaning supplies at COSTCO. But there’s NO hand sanitizer, alcohol, Lysol spray or Clorox wipes to be found.
We do have SOME good news! A grant was received from Terri and Gray Levy to update and expand the little isolation bungalows to include a fourth and larger maternity bungalow. A donation from Fred Marshall to honor his late wife has allowed us to begin total renovation of the old Acclimation building and “Linda’s Welcome Casita” will soon be finished. We’ll have more on this story and photos to share of both projects by next month. We are thankful for these generous donors!
In view of the current situation, there are no upcoming events planned. We had to cancel the last two Shelter Tours, Kitty BINGO and a planned Cinco de Mayo Fiesta at Daiquiri Dick’s.
With fund raising events cancelled, donations are the only source of funding to provide food, shelter and veterinary care for the 200+ cats & kittens in residence at PuRR Project. Any donation, large or small, will be welcomed to help us get through what will be a difficult summer. Click HERE to make a donation today. For more Kitty News, please visit PurrProject.com.
