In September 2021 Hurricane Nora wreaked havoc on our shelter.
Yet it could have been worse. Thanks to the valiant efforts of our board, employees and volunteers, every last one of the 56 dogs and 10 cats we had in residence was saved! Sadly however, one feral cat was impossible to catch and lost.
Thanks to a Mexican government disaster-relief fund, monies sufficient to put fencing around the perimeter of property were provided. Also, Conagua was able to reclaim approximately five meters of land along the river bank, restoring at least some of the lost property.
With the land more protected from future storms, we have been able to shift our focus to rebuilding the facilities.
The shelter’s original architect Jose Luis Niño, generously provided plans for the new construction required to fully reopen and allow us to help more of the animals in need in Puerto Vallarta.
