MexPup has rescued over 450 sick, abused and/or abandoned street dogs in Puerto Vallarta since it began as a Mexican-Canadian charity four years ago. The typical rescue dog requires 2-3 months of intensive veterinarian intervention, and care by a local foster family before it is flown to British Columbia by a volunteer. There it stays with another foster family one to two weeks before it is adopted to an approved family. MexPup follows up with each of these adopted pets to ensure that it remains in a loving and capable home.
“MexPup charges an adoption fee to help defray expenses, however it’s the fundraising activities in both Canada and Puerto Vallarta that sustains our all-volunteer group and allows us to make a difference.” said Patty Marchak, President of MexPup.
MexPup will be hosting its 4th annual fundraiser at the Spanish Experience Center, Republica de Chile #182, Cinco de Diciembre Puerto Vallarta, on Wednesday, January 21st from 6:30 to 10 PM. The event will feature delicious pork tacos (Tacos al Pastor), entertainment, raffles and a silent auction. The $200 peso entry fee includes all the tacos you can eat plus entertainment. A cash beverage and dessert bar will also be available. All proceeds go to MexPup so that it can continue to help the sick street dogs “one woof at a time”!
Tickets can be purchased at El Arrayan Restaurant, Cassandra Shaw Jewelry, and the Spanish Experience Center. A limited number will be available at the door.
