With currently over 100 dogs PEP needs a lot of help with the daily work, such as feeding and walking, maintaining the shelters and finding new loving homes for our dogs.

Descrizione della recensione

Perros en Puerto is a registered non-profit organization located in Puerto Escondido, a lovely chill surfer town on Mexico’s Pacific coast in the state of Oaxaca. There is a large community of foreigners living and visiting this part of Mexico. 

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. 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. The association is led by Annette who is supported by dedicated local and foreign volunteers.

Most of the funds come from Annette’s (founder) savings and donations. She is supported by volunteers to accomplish taking care of the facilities, rescuing, sterilizing, vet appointments, look for or be a foster home and/or get adopted.

The shelter and dog enclosures are thought out and build for dogs to be in good mental and physical health. Our pups are happy and may stay at the shelter until they are adopted, fostered or pass away.

If you LOVE dogs, have good animal and people skills, are committed and confident and think you have something to offer to our shelter dogs and/or the community, come and join us.

Perros en Puerto is an incredible place to volunteer. The dog shelter is one the best ones I've seen. They understand the importance of a well balance life for dogs. Plus, being in Puerto Escondido makes it even better. It is a beautiful chill costal city in Mexico. ..

Initially I would stay for three weeks, but I extended it to six because I loved it. The work is a steady routine and not difficult. Aside from cleaning and feeding, there is plenty of time to hang out with the dogs and to fall in love with them. The woman who runs it, Annette, is very kind and a ...

This was my first volunteering experience and I absolutely loved it. It was so refreshing to see how happy and well-kept the dogs are. The owner, Annette, is an absolute hero who has devoted so much time and has given so much to each and every dog. The dogs (95% of the time!) follow a strict ...

I have had a wonderful time at Perros en Puerto. The shelter is run by a German lady named Annette and she is very friendly and accomodating. She makes sure that you understand all the things needed to take care of the +- 90 dogs that are in the shelter. Activities consist out of feeding, cleaning, ...

I am one of Perros en Puertos longterm volunteers. It started with just wanting to go once or twice but once I got to know the place I could not help coming back all the time. You just cant help falling in love with all the dogs and all their special personalities. But also a huge factor is the ...

Annette, who runs the shelter is there for all of them 24/7 and the volunteers are made welcome and their time and effort appreciated. Every cent given to the shelter is used to run the place and ...
