SEPTEMBER – VIRTUAL ADOPTION MONTH!

PuRR Project - Caliope

Thanks to her virtual parents, Charlie & Carol McCullough, Caliope was able to have dental surgery and is now gaining weight!

September is the month we celebrate our Virtual Adoption cats! These are usually older cats who have little hope of finding a Forever Home. Many are very people-friendly and would make great companions. Others are feral or have a disability such as one eye or are deaf. YOU can “Virtually Adopt” one of these felines for yourself or as a gift to a feline-loving friend for $120 a year (or $10 a month) and help us continue to give these adult cats a safe home and medical care for life. You can learn how to virtually adopt and also meet all the candidates by going to our website at http://www.purrproject.com/virtual-adoption or write us at adopt@purrproject.com.

FEATURED FELINE: SAHARA

PuRR Project - SarahThis beautiful lady with the big blue eyes was abandoned by her family when they moved from their condo. Because she was declawed and could not defend herself, she suffered some serious injuries. Under Dra. Eva’s care she is completely healed and now lives in the Senior Center with Simona and Caliope…..but we hold out hope that she will one day find her Forever Home!! Contact Linda at adopt@purrproject.com in you are interested in adopting or Virtually Adopting one of our senior felines.

ISLA CUALE FREE CLINIC

PuRR Project - Cuale clinic

Kittens are weighed to make sure they have at least one kilo.

PuRR Project will be sponsoring the monthly FREE Spay Neuter Clinic on Sunday, October 1st. Sponsored by different animal organizations and individuals, an average of 75 dogs and cats are spayed each month, saving thousands of unwanted births each year. It’s a lot of work and very satisfying!! If YOU are interested in volunteering your time, materials or pesos, contact Glenda at gbland101@gmail.com for information. We always need animals carriers for the day plus cardboard boxes, dog collars & leashes, bottled water, snacks, hand sanitizer or soap and paper towels.

PuRR Project - Jill tour group

Jill Goldstein, founder of Pause 4 Paws in Minnesota, visited the PuRR shelter last month along with her friends Laura Uecker, Andrea Burch Taryn Fischbach, Kathy Mollers and Suzanna Persa. They toured the and met all the cats & kittens in the clinic, the Senior Center, Nursery and other casitas. All were impressed with the improvements to the casitas and the living conditions of the cats fortunate enough to be housed in them.

PuRR Project - Pause catsBut they were really drawn to some of the older cats living in the yard and surprised us when they decided to take five of them back to Minnesota! Four will go to the Angel of Hope Animal Rescue which found homes for over 1,100 felines last year!!!!! The fifth, Max, was adopted on the spot by Taryn. (Pause 4 Paws is the group that transported and re-homed 76 Vallarta cats last Spring with their “Gotta Getta Gatto” campaign. WOW and MEOW!!)
