Donations Needed for Tierra de Animales Animal Rescue
Many visitors to the Riviera Maya contact us to ask what they might bring down from the United States or Canada to help the efforts of local animal rescue groups. Tierra de Animales, an organization we featured in our 2011 12 Days/12 Ways campaign, has published a wishlist of needed items that can be purchased up north at a fraction of the cost charged in Mexico.
Cash donations for medical supplies to be purchased by Tierra de
Animales volunteers in the US and Canada are also appreciated. Most
items are much less expensive in the US and easy for volunteers to bring
down. Ongoing monetary donations are also needed for food and the
purchase of airline approved dog kennels/carriers to transport adopted
dogs to their new homes and families!! Thank you!
Please contact Lisa Edwards at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can donate any of the following:
*Collars, new or very gently used, only the snap kind please, and no metal chokers
*Plastic kennels/crates for airline travel, med-large sizes!!!!
*Medicines: doxycycline, amoxicillin, any antibiotics, any pain medications, topical wound care (Veterycin or similar)
