However, we have now had three noise complaints from neighbors, and the municipality is telling us we must remove the dogs, or they will remove them for us. Our new shelter is 8-10 weeks away from completion, so the timing is bad. We have no options, we are going to have to move all of the dogs to the ranch in Akumal temporarily. We will have someone at the ranch with the dogs on a daily basis, working to keep them safe and well during the completion of the build out of the new shelter. We hope to have all the dogs safely in the new shelter within 8 to 10 weeks.
Now more than ever we need help with adoptions and fostering. We will do all that we can to keep the dogs safe in Akumal, but it is not the ideal spot for them. Do you have room in your heart and your home to take one of our dogs for adoption or foster. They are all lovely dogs that will make a loving pet. Please help us to help these dogs.

So glad to see all the shelters working together for the better of the animals. Way to go everyone!!!
Really sorry to hear about having to move all the dogs from the puppy house. It looks like the new shelter is coming along well, though.
We wish we were there to help with the fostering, etc., too. But since we can't we just added a little extra to our sponsorship donation to help with your costs. Wish we could do more.
Good luck and keep up the great work!
