Dog Rescue Support

 

Our program helps people who rescue dogs off the street.

Coco’s started this program with the intention of helping and assisting people who rescue street dogs, so that they can take responsibility of their rescue and find them permanent homes.

We must stress that this program is not available for pets. It is available only for people who rescue and for rescued dogs and puppies. Rescuers who would like to form part of this program must contact us directly and must meet certain requirements to be eligible for the program.

If you rescue dogs and puppies, here are some of the services that Coco’s can provide at our cost price:

How Coco’s Can Help You:

These services are given with an appointment and the spay/neuter surgery is mandatory.

  • General Exam for rescued dogs by Coco’s veterinarians at low cost (minimum suggested donation $100).
  • Sterilization surgery by voluntary donation. (Donations are deeply appreciated as we normally need a minimum of $500 pesos for puppies below 10 kilos and for dogs below 20 kilos $600 pesos. For dogs over 20 kilos we ask for 1200 pesos and if they are over 30 kilos $1700 to cover surgical expenses). We have a limited number of surgeries available under voluntary donations, so we ask people not to take advantage of this option as this option is only available for those who really cannot afford to make the minimum donation. The minimum donation previously mentioned only covers the cost of medication and materials used for spay & neuter surgeries. If you are able to donate more it is always helpful!
  • 1st Rabies vaccine (low cost)
  • 5 way vaccine (low cost)
  • 6 way vaccine (low cost)
  • De-worming (low cost)
  • TVT treatment (low cost)
  • Distemper test (low cost)
  • Parvovirus test (low cost)
  • Heart Worm Test (low cost)

 

puppyOur team of Medical Vets will confirm the treatment needed for your rescued dogs. The treatments are not negotiable and all payments must be made in full before treatment.

IMPORTANT: We do not offer vaccines or medical consultations to owned pets unless they have been adopted in the last 6 months or they are pets of people who have just rescued a puppy and need medical attention to protect them. This is so we do not interfere with the business and income of local veterinarians.

We encourage you to put up posters, advertising that they are healthy, spayed/neutered and vaccinated. This way we hope it is easier for you to find them homes. We also have a poster template that you are welcome to use.

Why Coco’s is Not a Shelter

When Coco’s was founded, it was on the basis that the only answer to the massive numbers of unwanted animals in our area is an ongoing, sustainable sterilization service.

Coco’s mission of spay and neuter helps solve the biggest ongoing problem – keeping unwanted animals from being born. We are not a shelter, and no shelter could ever be big enough for all the feral and street animals in Playa del Carmen. We collaborate with local stakeholders to promote responsible ownership of cats and dogs, through neighbourhood trap/neuter/return (TNR) projects, Cat Cafes at resorts and hotels and rescuing of kittens under three months, as well as our “Rescued Dog Help” program.

Due to quarantine restrictions, we are only able to take in kittens when space is available, and we are unable to take in dogs. 

We ask pet owners to pay a minimum of $350 pesos to get their cat spayed or neutered and a minimum of $500 pesos for puppies below 10 kilos and for dogs below 20 kilos $600 pesos. For dogs over 20 kilos we ask for 1200 pesos and if they are over 30 kilos $1700 to cover surgical expenses.

We have a limited number of surgeries available under voluntary donations, so we ask people not to take advantage of this option as this option is only available for those who really cannot afford to make the minimum donation. The minimum donation previously mentioned only covers the cost of medication and materials used for spay & neuter surgeries. If you are able to donate more it is always helpful!

Please help spread the word about all our services so we can help more animals!
