Annual Spay/Neuter Campaign Donations
In 2019, we completed our 7th Annual Spay / Neuter Campaign in Rancho Viejo with a total of 1,847 animals that no longer are reproducing! In 2021, we did a smaller campaing in May, where we spayed and neuter 851 cats and dogs. We are currently preparing our 2021 November campaing where we have a goal of over 1,000 animals.
We cannot do this without your generous donations and support. Click here for more information and to make a donation. Together we can make a BIG DIFFERENCE!
One Time & Monthly Donations
Isla Animals is a 501C3 organization founded in 2001. We are 100% funded by donations and the generosity of unpaid volunteers. We have rescued over 6,000+ dogs since 2001 and are dedicated to decreasing the unwanted pet population on Isla Mujeres through on-going spay/neuter programs, education, vaccinations, and adoption.
Only with your help can this wonderful work continue.
Please consider a monthly donation, it’s easy to set up and Isla Animals has a pressing need for a budget that they can depend on.

You can also make a secure one-time donation by leaving the boxed unchecked.
We are always in need of basic supplies such as flea and tick medication & shampoo, collars, leashes, food, bowls, toys, etc. Medical supplies are in great demand as well as they lower our operating costs greatly thereby increasing the number of animals we can reach. See the list below for medical and non medical supplies we can use.
