ABOUT

Dogs kept on hot cement roofs without shade and water or tied up on short chains, others left to roam the street foraging for food, injured by cars, beaten, neglected and/or abandoned by their owners are a common sight.

Founded in 2008, Perros en Puerto (PEP) has made it its mission to help, rescue, provide safe refuge and care for those dogs and to create a community that is more compassion towards animal needs. The association is led by Annette who is supported by dedicated local and foreign volunteers.

Perros en Puerto is a registered non-profit organization funded solely through donations and Annette’s personal savings. Located in Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca it is the only dog rescue and shelter in Puerto and surrounding area.

HOW YOU CAN HELP

PEP receives no government funding and relies solely on donations. With 60 to 70 dogs in the shelter at any given time PEP needs volunteer help with the daily work such as feeding and walking, maintaining the shelters and finding loving forever homes for our dogs. We are also often in need of local foster homes for small puppies or dogs recovering from illness and surgery.

You can volunteer to be a flight escort and help one of our lucky dogs get to their forever home outside of Mexico. Or simply spread the word about the work we do at PEP.

DONATE OR SPONSOR
