Why is this a problem, James? I think you can tell that Duck & some of the other people from PPS have taken over! Please explain what harm comes from one charity using a common user name? Obviously, they are, in unison, trying to help abandoned animals & have no other agenda!

Arnie, I do not post under "our animals" but, thanks for your concern This situation has been worked out with James and everything is No problemo ! Just to clarify: PAR is continuing the tradition started by Andy & Jen with the PPS and that is ... to continue saving the street dogs of Playa Del Carmen and find them their "forever home". Before Andy "retired" from the PPS he asked Aussie G. if he would like to carry on what they started and that's what has happened. The mission continues .............

What an absolute RIOT everyone had playing TRIVIA ! even the POKER PLAYERS stopped playing poker to donate to PAR and join in on the fun ! Many HUGE THANK YOU's to EVERYONE for taking time and coming down on a rainy night to help with donations & bags of food for the doggies ! We met alot of old friends and made NEW friends as well !! As well as the TRIVIA game went over, I think there is a possibility that we could start doing this maybe TWICE a month ???

Your feedback on a TRIVIA game would be most encouraging, For those of you that were there and for those of you that WISH you were there, please leave us some feedback on our Playa Animal Rescue thread and we'll see what we can do ! We could do a "trivia night" and have just the trivia game or maybe even toss in the 50-50 raffle as well .... we did alot of extras for this one as ideas came to mind but, this could be simple as well ! We could also spread this game all around town too ! have it 1 time at 1 bar then a different one the next time ! Give us your imput ! Personally, I would like us to do this EVERY WEEK ! This kind of thing would mean soooo much and go soooo far with helping us feed the doggies as well as paying for meds that they need to stay healthy for their forever homes ! Libra and Lucinda were such sweet babies all night, the kisses were flowing from the doggies so much it made ME want to bring 2 more home !

< Just in case you didn't see this on the fundraiser thread > .... What do ya think peeps ???? we NEED imput ! This was a HUGE success and "Trivia" is such a fun game for all ! We could do BIGGER and better 1st place prizes as time goes on .... but we need your participation in order to do this ! WE LOVE YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT !!

Would love to do a trivia night when we're down Dec 25th to Jan 1st! Don't know how much Craig would contribute(except for Sports), but we'd be game for it!

We should do a trivia fundraiser! Not exactly sure how we could work this out, but we have some time to figure it out!

Trivia night was so much fun and wasn't hard to put together A person could even have a themed trivia night...such as sports..."how well do you know Playa"....etc... Anything to help the pups & dogs

Not James's issues, just site policies, which have been in place forever. We have to adhere to policies so it's fair for all charities and individuals, no matter who they are. Since its inception, Playa.info has been an important venue for area charities to raise funds and promote their causes.

The lucky puppies at PAR's Puppy House, are getting a new roof over their pens! There will be plenty of cool shade, and protection from the rain. We'll have pictures as soon as it is completed.
Projects like this can not be completed without the donations from our generous supporters. Please consider becoming a monthly sponsor to one of our animals.
