Volunteer With Us

Come and volunteer at any time!

If you have been following the news, you may’ve seen we are being evicted from the space we used for 8 years as a shelter in Mundaca. This spot was a safe heaven for the dogs and very easy to find.

We have come up with a temporary and immediate solution to be able to continue due the work that we love and helping all the dogs we possibly can. However, our new location is a house and poorly adapted to have so many visitors. We haven’t decided yet how we are going to organize this in order to have you come meet our doggies, we are working on it!

  • Help with the animals, there is always a need for walking dogs, socializing puppies, bathing and grooming, cleaning and repairs etc.
  • With office work/research/grant writing (this can even be done from home)
  • During spay/neuter clinics we need help with trapping, check-in and paperwork, recovery, organizing and cleaning, plus pick up and return of animals.
  • You can volunteer whatever amount of time you can afford and you’ll have a vacation experience that will be fun and fulfilling.

Escorts Needed!

We always need help getting adopted puppies and dogs to their forever home. There is absolutely no cost for you – we take care of everything. Please contact us directly at: info@islaanimals.org for all of the details. THIS PROGRAM IS STILL HAPPENING AS WE ARE STILL RESCUING AND REHOMING DOGS!!!!!

Walk a Dog!

We always need dog walkers… our dogs enjoy walking whenever healthy enough to do so…. Please check with the stuff if that’s an option! Just wear clothes you don’t mind getting dirty. Children under 15 must be accompanied by an adult at all times.

Clinic Days!

We always need help on our clinic day when we provide free or reduced cost vet services and vaccinations. Check-in and paper work, recovery, organizing and cleaning, etc. Every Thursday from 10am – 4pm. During Covid you need to book a spot. WE ARE NOT PROVIDING FREE SPAY AND NEUTER CAMPAIGNS UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

We welcome drop-in volunteers every day from 10am – 4pm.

We are not receiving volunteers at the moment due to the eviction of the shelter space. We will be soon open again to the public, please drop a line if you’re interested inc coming and see us!

Thank you for your interest!


Our shelter is located mid-island on Isla Mujeres in La Gloria nestled into the Hacienda Mundaca Parque. You can’t miss it – there is a HUGE thatched palapa roof over an open space.

You can tell any taxi driver, “Hacienda Mundaca Palapa” and they will bring you right to us.

Our temporary location is located in the neighborhood called METEREOLOGICO, it’s just a block from Rosa Sirena, Casa Bella, and… locals would recognize more as being in front of Karenpool (a little supermarket).

We are located now on a one-way street in a very residential neighborhood. We have no parking here. So please wait for instructions on where is best to park as we want to remain respectful towards our neighbors!
