There are different way to adopt a PuRR Project cat

Adopt a cat or kitten

At our “Adoption Day” booths in Puerto Vallarta:

  • PLAZA MARINA: Year-Round on Friday from 11:00 to 2:00 in the rotunda in front of Comercial Mexicana.
  • DAIQUIRI DICKS: November through March on Saturday from 10:00 to 1:00.

Are you ready to adopt a cat?

  • Are all of the people who live in my house in agreement with adopting this cat?
  • Does anyone have allergies?
  • Am I financially prepared? (vet bills for vaccinations or if kitty gets sick? And to purchase quality cat food appropriate for it’s age, etc…?)
  • Do I have a Litter box, Litter, pooper scooper, a carrier for vet visits, food and water bowls?
  • Who will take care of my cat if I travel?
  • Cats need to live either exclusively indoors – or – indoors and outdoors. Am I prepared for this?

We ask for a minimum donation of $300 pesos (about $15 dollars) per kitty.

Our actual cost is about $100 USD per kitten to get it prepared for adoption, including testing for FIV/Leukemia, deworming, vaccinations, spay or neuter and quality Kitten Development food.

Virtually adopt

If you are not able to physically adopt a cat and take it home with you, but would like to help, you can also “virtually” adopt!
