Help Sanctuary Evolución feed and care for rescued dogs waiting for their forever homes!
You can see abandoned animals walking the streets of Yucatán, Mexico every day. Sanctuary Evolución, located in San Lorenzo outside Merida, Yucatán, houses more than 170 abused or abandoned dogs waiting for their forever homes. While at the sanctuary these dogs have a safe haven, including basic medical and preventative care, and food to ensure they don't go to sleep hungry.
Although adoption rates are improving, for every dog that finds a loving home, there are four or more left outside the shelter gates or rescued from the streets. To help stem this tide, the sanctuary also runs free clinics for low income families who otherwise could not afford to have their pets spayed or neutered.
You can help. $15 cares for a shelter dog for a month; $30 cares for two shelter dogs for a month. Thank you for your kindness toward these dogs in need!
How Your Donations Are Helping
December 2012 from Sanctuary Evolución
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for caring. The shelter is run by volunteers, but the need is great and our resources are limited so your support is very much appreciated.
Since 2005, Evolución has been a member of the Consejo Consultivo de Proteccion a la Fauna del Municipio de Merida. This council worked to reform the Law for the Protection of Animals of the Yucatan and at the end of August 2012, the new Regulations for the Protection of Animals of Merida was approved! There is a way to go, but we continue to work with our authorities and other local organizations to achieve our goals.
Here are some of Evolución's dogs at play!
Sanctuary Evolución is a volunteer-run organization working to protect animals from abuse and neglect. While Evolución exists as a dog sanctuary, the organization focuses on educating the public about responsible pet ownership, provides no charge spay/neuter clinics to low income families, and conducts anti-violence and environmental awareness campaigns.
