Help us help the children in need this Christmas

As you know, Coco's Animal Welfare's focus has always been on rescued cats and dogs, with reduction of reproduction being our key goal. However, we cannot turn our backs on the humans, where there are adults and children with no clean water, not enough food, dirty old clothing and no shoes or toys.

Over the last 18 months we have been helping the animals in a small community on the outskirts of Playa. It is of course a boon to them to stop the reproduction of pets, which strains their ability to care for the pets and each other however we have decided we want to do more which is why we are announcing our latest event that will take place on the 6th of January.

In Mexico this day is celebrated as the day of the 3 kings. It is Mexican tradition to eat a special bread on this day. It is also tradition for the kids to wake up to a gift from the 3 kings(similar to santa). On this day we will travel to this community and give out donations of toys, clothes and shoes. We will also serve drinks and make sure everyone has some special bread.

Last year we gave out gifts to around 300 children as well as shoes, clothes and even had a Doctor give free consults as well as giving out vitamins and much needed medications.

These people are in desperate need of help and we hope this year will also be a big success.

We invite local residents and visitors to drop off to Coco’s for collection and distribution. If you’d like to donate for this cause now, simply send a note with your Paypal donation to saying “Outreach for People” or deposit to our SCOTIABANK account. Every donation helps!!
