Purr Project Launches Fundraising Campaign

If you’re one of the hundreds of people who have visited the Purr Project shelter in Puerto Vallarta, chances are you’ve been introduced to some of their ‘senior citizens’—their older cat population. Some arrived at the shelter as feral cats, unadoptable for one reason or another, or simply because they have failed to find a permanent home. This has resulted in an aging population with very special needs.

As such, the Purr Project, a no-kill feline rescue shelter, has identified the urgent need to construct a new building specifically for older and special needs cats, which will allow them to live their lives in a safe, stress-free environment. The covered structure will be designed to provide shelter from the region’s unrelenting summer heat and torrential rains. It will also allow their medical staff to better supervise their ongoing care without having to cage them in the clinic.

The new structure will be named ‘Simona’s Senior Center’ in honor of one of their oldest and most popular cats at the ranch—Simona was born with crossed-eyes and bowed forelegs which require daily medication, but neither affliction has slowed her down one bit.

Folks interested in helping this project come to fruition can click on this link to visit the Purr Project’s Go Fund Me campaign and make a donation using a credit or debit card. If you prefer, you may send a check to their US address:

“In a meeting that we had with the magazine’s founder, he told us about his dream of making a quality and luxury publication because he was convinced that Puerto Vallarta needed that. For that reason, we have advertised in Vallarta Lifestyles since its beginnings. These days, our brand is very well positioned thanks to the strategic distribution of the magazine, as it helps us reach more potential customers which is a great benefit for us.”

“Vallarta Lifestyles is a platform that allows us to reach the kind of market that we’re looking for. I think that, since its beginnings, 30 years ago, it has been the best publication of the destination. There’s no doubt that part of our success is for the advertising that we have in the magazine.”

“Vallarta Lifestyles speaks for itself, it’s a good quality publication with great image, that’s why we have advertised since we started our business. Without any doubt, it is the most read magazine. Its articles and advertising are target to the audience we’re looking for. Vallarta Lifestyles has grown the same way Puerto Vallarta has.”
