2018 PuRR CALENDAR
It’s not too late to get YOUR 2018 PuRR Calendar, this year featuring the kittens from the PuRR Nursery! You can pick one up at our Saturday Adoption Post from 10:00 to 1:00 at Daiquiri Dick’s…..or any day at the hostess desk at DD’s. It’s only $250 pesos and makes the perfect holiday gift for your cat-loving family and friends!! We also have a supply of our new “I’m Purr-fect” logo T-shirts at the booth. So come on by on Saturday and say Hello!!
The shelter “Greeter cats” were thrilled with our first tour of this season on November 22. Visitors brought treats and toys and spent some quality time hugging kitties and all agreed it was a day to remember. First time visitors are always impressed with how so many cats can live together peacefully (most of the time!) and how clean it is (thanks to Jose and Carlos!) If you live in Vallarta or plan to visit in the next few months, you can find all the info on making a reservation at our website: SHELTER VISITS
Upcoming tour dates: Dec 6 & 20, JAN 3, 17 & 31, FEB 14 & 28, MAR 14 & 28.
THE PURR NURSERY
The shelter took in 24 kittens and one Mama cat in the last couple of months, so the PuRR Nursery is always full! Adoptions have been slow so we have many kittens and “teenagers” who really need to find their Furr-ever homes…. we have boys & girls in all colors and sizes. Come check out a selection any Friday at Plaza Marina from 11:00 -2:00!
DONATING TO PuRR
Making a donation in the name of a cat-loving friend or family member is a great gift for birthdays or Christmas!! And that’s exactly what several people did for Presley Sullivan’s 6th birthday in November!! Her mother Heather reports:
“This week’s festivities started with a surprise animal show in Presley’s Kindergarten class and finally a fairy-themed craft party. Presley’s classmates and friends crafted, painted treasure boxes and earned their fairy wings. In lieu of gifts, many of Presley’s guests donated to the PuRR Project, where two of our three Mexican rescues have come from.”

NOVEMBER GARAGE SALE
The 4th Annual PuRR Garage Sale was a HUGE hit this year, thanks to all the generous folks who donated sale items and all the people who came to shop!! By the end of October, funds are always at a critical point and this year we earned enough pesos to fund the shelter for five weeks! Un-sold books were donated to Los Mangos Library and the other items donated to Corazon de Nino for their bazaar. (Hint: We may do another one in April!)
GRACIAS! THANKS! MERCI! DANKE! ARIGATO!
We are so thankful to our monthly donors….the shelter could not survive without you: Gary Phillips, Charlie & Carol McCullough, Sharon & Ken Rose, Heather Sullivan, Larry Sherwood, Kristen Wilmsen and Kris Gilstrap.
The kitties are also grateful for recent generous donations by Dawn Darling, Malka & Steve Sekey, Marc Serrano, Pam & Milt Tanora, Beth & Mike Fiorino and Ken Lieberman!! We were able to take advantage of a sale at COSTCO and stock up on cat food. MEOW!!
