A while back I joined a group of animal conscious individuals in a group called YAPA
(Yucatan Ayuda Para Animales)
What we do is support several animal care interests here in Merida. We cater to English speakers and serve as a bridge between them and the Spanish speaking founders of these shelters/albergues, etc.
We have been providing support staff and volunteers for several of the events of these animal care facilities.
I am adding the link to their blog to my side bar, but you can get to them right here!
Please check them out, and if you want to help out just send an email, you can do that here!
