Puerto Vallarta, Mexico – The latest news from PuRR Project, a non-profit, no-kill feline shelter 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.
GARAGE SALE: Saturday, December 2 from 9:00 – 2:00 at Gaviotas 143 in Marina Vallarta. We’ve got lots of good “stuff” including men’s and women’s clothing, snorkel fins and masks, toaster ovens, ice maker, Christmas decorations, printers, shoes, covered cat litter boxes, cat beds, carriers and lots more!!
KITTY BINGO: We’re back at Nacho Daddy every other Wednesday so this month will be December 6 and 20. Cards go on sale at 3:30 and games start at 4:00. Special drink and snack prices for BINGO players plus you can win great prizes when you get a BINGO and shout “MEOW”! And win cash in the 50/50 Raffle! So grab a friend and come on down for a fun way to support the shelter.
SATURDAY MARKET: We won’t be at our usual spot outside Daiquiri Dick’s on December 2, but we’ll be back there every Saturday after that! It’s a great place to find Christmas gifts for your cat-loving friends (or yourself!). We’ve got our 2024 calendars, logo T-shirts in many colors and styles, PuRR coffee mugs, PuRR caps, drink holders and cat dish towels. So come by between 10:00 and 1:00 and check us out!
Work to repair the damage from Hurricane Lidia is finally almost complete! All fallen trees have been cut down and roofs have been repaired. There is still debris to be hauled away but we are so relieved that we have much needed nursery space back in use, especially since 44 kittens were abandoned there just since the hurricane.
People often ask what we spend on an average month. It’s about $100,000 pesos. With so many kittens and so many litter boxes, we spend a LOT of money on kitty litter, about $115,000 pesos so far this year! Jose prefers the Scoop Away from COSTCO, but a shortage often means there is none available or there is a limit of two per customer. That means multiple trips to COSTCO or other places to find the weekly supply. Your donations also pay for food, medicines, vet care, staff salaries, electricity, cleaning supplies and regular maintenance.
We’ve got so many kitties that need a home right now! Welcoming a new furry best friend into your home for Christmas would be such a wonderful gift to yourself and your family. We bring adoptable kittens to the PetCo Adoption Center on Avenida Fluvial in Puerto Vallarta every weekend from 10:00am-6:00pm on Saturday and 10:00am-4:00pm on Sunday. You can check our FaceBook page every Friday for photos.
Giving a “Virtual” kitty is a unique way to say Merry Christmas or Happy Birthday to a loved one. Just go to our website and choose your kitty. It’s only $120 and you can use the PayPal button on the site. Let us know your choice and who the gift is for and we’ll send a notice and photo!
