Help us build a place of hope and healing

Please Watch this short 2 minute video:

Our mission at Coco’s Animal Welfare (CAW)is to alleviate the suffering of animals through community education, clinic services, and fostering of homeless or unwanted cats and dogs. Through disease prevention and our highly successful animal sterilization program we continue to execute our mission in Riviera Maya and Yucatan communities.

Since our humble beginnings in 2009, we have reached many communities. Our spayed and neuter program has treated over 16,000 animals, we have worked with over 10 local rescue groups and organizations with medical services for their animals, and our volunteers have worked with us to rescue and adopt out over 1000 animals.

The demand for our services has increased exponentially since 2009. To meet the continued need in our communities we have implemented new programs that support both our mission and our communities.

With more programs. community outreach and clinic services, Coco’s Animal Welfare has a constant and overwhelming demand for animal care. Our current clinic is not reaching the demand for our services, which has led to our current expansion. A larger clinic that is centrally located in the Riviera Maya would meet the need of our communities. By increasing our space we can serve more cats and dogs, support more rescue and animal organizations, and conduct more community education that meets the demand we are currently facing.
The new clinic has been designed to go beyond today’s demands with a view to the future, allowing us to help and provide ongoing support to more animals and animal organizations while educating more families and children about animal welfare. With our new clinic services we will help over 8000 animals each year.
New Clinic Highlights:
  • Prep, surgery and recovery areas
  • Lab and kitten quarantine room
  • Two isolation rooms
  • Overnight hospital facilities for both dogs and cats
  • Large multipurpose room for training and educational courses
  • Large garden for adoption events
Through the generous support and donation of land and two foundation grants from the International Federation of Animal Welfare (IFAW) and Dog’s Trust, we are well on our way to meeting the community demand for services.

Be a Part of Our Community Animal Welfare Clinic and Education Center

Our community has been a critical part of our success. As we build the new clinic and education center block by block, we feel it is important to include opportunities for community donors, both individual and corporate partners, in our mission to support local animal welfare and clinic services in the Riviera Maya and Yucatan.

To complete the project we are faced with the challenge to raise an additional $37,000US and are counting on you, our supporters and animal advocates, to help us meet our goal.

Various donor levels highlight the community leaders who choose to support our mission and passion for the humane treatment and care of our local animals. All Community donors who participate in any of our donor levels will be invited to the opening of the new clinic facilities in addition to the donor recognition offered.

Our partnership with ViDAS enables our US donors to obtain a tax receipt for your generous contribution. To obtain your tax-deductible receipt, checks may be made payable to “ViDAS,” and mailed to P.O. Box 20246, Boulder, CO 80308-3246.

If you can help please donate to this amazing new building for Cocos Animal Welfare, They do so much for the community to alleviate the suffering of animals through community education, clinic services, and fostering of homeless or unwanted cats and dogs, and mainly sterilizing dogs and cats from the street and low income areas. They also do so much for children in community outreach.
