Protección de Perros y Gatos, Progreso a.c., Yucatán 

(The Protection of Dogs & Cats)

AW Dog-1

This Yucatán State, México humane society organization is run by a board of locals and expats that have been working diligently, painstakingly and patiently to establish a much needed animal clinic in Rancho san Pedro, Chicxulub.  The goal and focus of the clinic is to rescue, spay and neuter, and encourage adoption of stray, abandoned, and abused companion animals that sadly are a common sight in the Yucatán.  Part of their mission also includes the institution of an animal welfare public education program. The building of the clinic is in progress, local fundraising efforts take place throughout the year, and updates are provided via the organization’s quarterly newsletter. 

The group meets regularly on an informal basis at Le St. Bonnet Restaurant on Progreso’s Malecón on the last Monday of each month at 8:00 p.m.  These gatherings are always open to the general public when all are invited to attend and share thoughts and ideas, especially in the areas of public education and fundraising.

To learn more about the organization and clinic, make specific inquiries, subscribe to the newsletter or send donations, please contact Kitty Morgan, Treasurer, at the following email address;

The mailing address is Apartado Postal #30, Progreso 97320, Yucatán, México
