Dogs and Pups at the Clinic

Finding a companion animal for adoption on Isla Mujeres could never be easier. At any given time there are an average of 20 animals that are fully vetted and waiting to go to their forever home. You can make arrangements to meet them personally by contacting us by clicking here.

  Animals can travel with their new owners as long as the airline permits. (Except to England or Ireland where a 6 month quarantine is required.) It is so easy, just follow the steps below. For a more detailed explanation, see the bottom of this page.  
  1. Call your airline to be sure they will let you travel with a pet.
  2. Obtain health Certificate by contacting Alison or a local vet.
  3. Buy a kennel in Cancun for transport. You can also borrow one of ours if the right size is available. You can bring this back on your next visit, or donate it to your local animal shelter. We always appreciate a donation, if possible, for the use of the kennel.
  4. Hit the road, or rather fly away, with your new loved one!
We have sent animals from Isla Mujeres all over the world!

Current Dogs and Pups

  • Name: Stevie Wonder
  • Approx. Birthdate: March 30, 2017, aprox.
  • Status: Learning to eat and gaining strength.
  • Vaccinations: One vaccination.
  • Sex: Male.

Comments:
Stevie is blind. A woman wrote me and said that someone had given this pup to a friend of hers. I told her to take him to Arturo's clinic, which she did. Sadly his blindness cannot be corrected but he is gaining strength otherwise. One of his problems is that he doesn't know how to eat and must be hand fed. But Arturo is working with him.

  • Name: Wolfie
  • Approx. Birthdate: March 20, 2017 aprox.
  • Status: In recovery.
  • Vaccinations: One vaccination.
  • Sex: Male

Comments:
Wolfie was found by the side of the road. He was probably hours from death. His recovery has been a miracle but he still has a lot of catching up to do. His biggest issue write now is a low immune system which is slowing the healing of his skin issues which are fungus and mange. However, this little guy is the happiest sweetest puppy, almost as if he knew how close he came.

Julie came to us with 8 puppies. Someone had taken her off the streets when she was pregnant and kept her until her puppies were 1 month old and then didn't want her or the pups. We took them all. Julie was a wonderful mother and is a wonderful dog. She's gentle, sweet, loves people and is slowly learning to play.

  • Status: Available for adoption.
  • Vaccinations: Two vaccinations and a rabies shot.
  • Sex: Male, neutered.

These pups were in the Guatalupana, a poor section of Isla Mujeres. They were not being properly cared for so the neighbors called us and asked for help. Somebody must have been doing something right because all three pups are sweet and good with people and dogs.

  • Status: Adopted.
  • Vaccinations: Two vaccination and a rabies shot.
  • Sex: Male, neutered.

Comments:
This little guy was found alone in the jungle and brought to us. He is such a character. He loves to play with the older dogs. He and Chabella are best friends. Ash keeps barking at my old chihuahua because I think he just can't imagine any dog or human that doesn't want to play with him.

  • Name: Chabella
  • Approx. Birthdate: January 2014
  • Status: Adopted.
  • Vaccinations: Two vaccinations and a rabies shot.
  • Sex: Female spayed.

Comments:
We took Chabella from a Rescue on the mainland that was closing and we're so lucky that we did. She is a treat. She is friendly trained, good with people and dogs. She's had a few litters and has a nasty scar by one hip. Apparently she came from a bad owner who didn't feed her or let her into the house. But she's safe now and just a great dog.

  • Approx. Birthdate: May 2016

  • Vaccinations: Has two vaccinations and a rabies shot.

Comments:
Julie was found in the street when she was pregnant. Someone took her in and she had her pups but they couldn't keep her. She is such a great mom, her pups are so healthy. She looks like a border collie mix. She won't be ready to go any where for a while.

  • Approx. Birthdate: October 1, 2017
  • Status: Adopted.
  • Vaccinations: Has two vaccinations and a rabies shot.
  • Sex: Male, neutered.

Comments:
Esteban was tied to a friends door. I'm pretty sure that he's had a home. He walks perfectly on a leash, he's house trained, he's great with other dogs and loves people. He also loves to play and cuddle once he decides you're his friend.

  • Name: Pancho
  • Approx. Birthdate: We think around 2010.
  • Status: Available for adoption but we are happy to keep him as our clinic dog.
  • Vaccinations: Two vaccines and a rabies shot.
  • Sex: Male, neutered.

Comments:
This little old guy is from the streets of Rancho Viejo. When he was found he was skin and bones. We tested him for everything and he is negative for parvo, distemper and heartworm. He's just middle aged and neglected. He's friendly with the other dogs but doesn't want to play with them. He just wants to sit next to a person who loves dogs and he can trust. He's very handsome.

  • Name: Mico
  • Approx. Birthdate: March 2015
  • Status: Adopted.
  • Vaccinations: Two vaccinations and a rabies shot.
  • Sex: Male, neutered.

Comments:
A woman asked me to take a dachshund that she had on her roof - so I went to her house to check it out. When I arrived - all I could see on the roof was the head of a dachshund barring his teeth and growling like Kujo. I told her I couldn't take such an aggressive dog. She told me she had another one up there and all I could think of was that I had to get that poor dog off the roof. That was Mico. He was so shy, we could hardly touch him. But once again I'm amazed what the environment at our clinic does for these dogs. They know they are loved, the other dogs teach them to play and everything is all about them. He's coming around very well.

  • Name: Rosie
  • Approx. Birthdate: Feb. 2016
  • Status: Adopted.
  • Vaccinations: Two vaccinations and Rabies.
  • Sex: Female, spayed.

Comments:
Rosie was abandoned in Rancho Viejo with four pups. She is a black dachshund with a lab face and very very sweet. When we got her she was healthy and then broke with some skin issues that we are working on. She gets along with people, dogs, walks on a leash and is paper trained. Rosie is now here with me at the house, she is the best dog, loves to play but also loves to sit quietly at your feet.

  • Name: Tulsa
  • Approx. Birthdate: April 2016
  • Status: Adopted.
  • Vaccinations: Has two vaccinations and a rabies shot.
  • Sex: Female, spayed

Comments:
Tusla was brought to us by a family who couldn't keep her. They had good reasons and we're happy to find her a new home. She was shy at first but I took her home with me and she's the best. Loves to play, house trained, leash trained and well behaved. She plays hard but knows when enough is enough. She is great with other dogs and just an all around pleasure to have around,

  • Name: Yoyo
  • Approx. Birthdate: Feb. 2, 2017
  • Status: Adopted.
  • Vaccinations: Two Vaccines.
  • Sex: Female, spayed.

Comments:
Yoyo is the only survivor of her litter. We put her in foster care since she didn't have any vaccines but she tested negative for both Parvo and Distemper. She's been getting bigger and better everyday. And she has attitude. Very cute.

  • Name: Fire pup - Greta.
  • Approx. Birthdate: Janurary 4, 2017.
  • Status: Adopted.
  • Vaccinations: Two vaccines.
  • Sex: Female, spayed.

Comments:
There was an area in Rancho Viejo inhabited by squatters. It had been there for years. The owner had been trying to reclaim his land for years and finally bulldozed and burned the homes. The people had to relocate but this was a very poor neighborhood and most of them were forced to leave their animals behind. All the rescues in this area came together to help. We took a litter of six, but sadly only three survived. And that they survived was a miracle and only due to the expertise of our Vet - Dr. Arturo. They're so much better now but still battling skin issues. Gidget is small but doing well.

  • Name: Ella

  • Status: Gone to Wyoming.
  • Vaccinations: Three vaccinations and a rabies.
  • Sex: Female, spayed

Comments:
Ella is such a shy pup. She came from Punta Sam where the car ferry dock is. She's had huge skin problems but is almost healed and she is coming around to people and dogs alike. It really is amazing how they adjust.

  • Name: Geena
  • Approx. Birthdate: August 1, 2016
  • Status: Gone to Wyoming
  • Vaccinations: Three vaccinations and a rabies.
  • Sex: Female, spayed.

Comments:
Geena came from Punta Sam. Some tourists sent me pictures of a mom and pups that were at the car ferry next to their hotel. They were in rough shape and scared of people but would eat the food we left them. We went to get them and could only get two, Geena and Ella. Geena has adjusted to people and is doing very well. Ella has bad skin and a ways to go.

  • Vaccinations: Two vaccination and a rabies shot.
  • Sex: Male, neutered.

Comments:
Chester was brought in by a man on the island who said that he'd had him for two days. Chester had been hanging out in the street. We're amazed at how young he is for his size. He's going to be a big boy and he's shy and sweet. No idea what breed but he's three times the size of other pups that we have of the same age.

  • Name: Chester
  • Approx. Birthdate: January 2013
  • Status: In Wyoming
  • Vaccinations: Two vaccines and a Rabies shot.

  • Vaccinations: Third vaccine and rabies shot.
  • Sex: Female, spayed.

Comments:
Victoria is very special. She has been tied up most of her life and is so excited to walk on her leash, smell everything and she loves the water as all labs do. She is beautiful and without doing a test I would say she's pretty much all black lab. Very sweet. She had a litter of puppies but that was before we met her. She's spayed now. Poor Victoria tested positive for heart-worm. We will start her treatment on Thursday. Other than that she is very healthy and up to 24 Kg.

  • Name: Champ, family of 8.
  • Approx. Birthdate: November, 2016.
  • Status: Gone to Safe Hands in MN
  • Vaccinations: Has two vaccinations.
  • Sex: Male, neutered.

Comments:
This litter of pups is from Rancho Viejo. One of the people who I work with there heard that the owner of the mom was going out of town and intended to leave the mother and and pups to fend for themselves. The area was not fenced and as the puppies got older there is no doubt that they would have ventured further. So we found a foster and took them in. They're all doing so well. I never saw the mom but she must have been smaller than average because these are not big pups.

  • Status: Our poor moma didn't make it, she had heartworm and other issues and it was too much.
  • Vaccinations: Has one vaccination.
  • Sex: Female, spayed.

Comments:
I saw this nursing mother going through the garbage on the side of the road. As usual I followed her and found out where she lives. She had 7 pups and the owners were delighted to save all of them for me. In the mean time the little runt didn't make it and the others, including the mom, were covered in fleas. I checked on them weekly until the owners said they didn't want the mom either, so I took them all. At first Tara was very scared but came around in a day when she knew she was safe. It was wonderful. Unfortunately she has tested positive for heartworm and we can't treat her until she stops nursing which is happening this week. She's so skinny but just a love. I know that she is going to be fine.

  • Approx. Birthdate: Feb. 22, 2017
  • Status: adotped.

This shy little guy was abandoned at our Nov. spay and neuter clinic in Rancho Viejo. He had a severe eye infection in his right eye. Dr. Arturo tried to save it but the eye was too damaged so we removed it and he has adjusted well. Dr. Arturo kept Copper for two months to watch the eye heal and make sure that he was healthy. Copper came to the clinic a few weeks ago and has adjusted beautifully. He's a sweetheart.

Gustoff came from the streets of Rancho Viejo. His skin was terrible, he was skinny but still friendly. We knew he was going to be so handsome with a fully body of hair. It is already improving and he's gaining weight. He's just great with the other dogs and loves people.

  • Name: Bella
  • Approx. Birthdate: January 2015
  • Status: Adopted.
  • Vaccinations: Has two vaccinations.
  • Sex: Female, spayed.

Comments:
Bella was found by the big grocery store on the island. She was absolutely terrified, very matted and skinny. Isabele is holding her in the picture because Bella trusts her more than any one else. But she's getting used to other people, walks well with different volunteers and is starting to play with the other dogs. We think that she's some kind of grey hound whippet mix. She has some skin wounds that need to heal and a little more adjusting to do. But she's a lovely dog. If someone wants a dog that is all theirs, Bella is the one.

Trina and I found Biscuits and Gravy at a carpenters house. We are always on the look out for nursing mothers and then we follow them. This mom had 10 puppies. Sadly, she only has room to feed eight and if one or two pups start to get weak than they don't get any food and that's what happened to these two pups. When we found them they were so dehydrated that we don't think they would have lasted another 24 hours. But luckily we were in time and gave them sub Q. fluids and mushed food and miraculously they have survived. Their mom is a lab boxer mix with short legs, so you decide all the breeds in this family.

An old friend called me and said that a friend of hers was feeding a mom and three puppies who were living in the streets. She asked me if I could help. Which of course I said yes, but sadly by the time the people brought her over all the pups were gone. Momma was pretty depressed when she arrived. She had bad skin and sad eyes. That was a while ago. She has come around - looks beautiful - plays with the other dogs and love to walk off leash with any dogs that are being walked.

Jack is one of the two junkyard pups we picked up. The junkyard is on the way to Rancho Viejo and I have taken dogs from there before. They have 30 all together and were happy to give me the two little ones. The owner is good with the dogs but doesn't handle them very much and as always there is a shortage of food for them. I'm going to take them some on our next trip to the mainland.

Peanut is a doll, he was abandoned at the clinic. He's staying with me and is no trouble at all. He just wants food and peace and quiet. He's much friendlier now that he's in a loving environment. At first he was pretty shut down. We think he is actually 14 years old and he has tested positive for heartworm so he may just stay with us.

This little guy was found on the side walk by a teenage boy. He was covered with fleas, skinny and scared. I have kept him at my house because he's so young but soon discovered that he's also blind. He may see some shadows or maybe he just feels the air move, I've never had a blind dog so I'm not expert. But he's healthy and happy and has a perky little step. April 24, update, he seems to see better every day, it may have been bad nutrition but he's definitely not totally blind.

Flaco has no skin issues, his nails have been trimmed, he is negative for heartworm and he loves people so who knows the story behind this one but he will be a gift to someone.

We have a sad situation on the island. Five fisherman went out one morning and have been lost at sea for 10 days. Eileen has been helping to deliver food and supplies to the fishermen who are searching everyday. When we were at the dock they gave us two puppies and this lovely poodle mix. She was so covered with knots that it was irritating her skin. We've shaved her, not our best job as we are definitely not groomers and given her vaccines and de wormer. She's just a sweet heart which always amazes me after they have been so neglected.

This is a sad story. We first saw Tiki and Miel when we were checking on a nursing mom with seven pups. It seemed like a lot of dogs for one small house but we were concentrating on talking the owners into keeping the babies with their mom for at least six weeks. We took Tiki and Miel to the clinic to clean the up, vaccinate and de-worm them and then the owner wanted them back. But 10 days ago we found them at the same house dehydrated and undernourished so we have them now and they are both doing very well.

This is one of the unfortunate roof pups who starved and had no water unless a kind neighbor intervened. He tested a light positive for heart worm so we're treating him with heart guard. This will kill the eggs in his blood stream and the worms in his heart will die of old age. He's great with people, doesn't pay attention to cats but is still getting used to other dogs since he's been isolated on a roof his entire life. He isn't aggressive with other dogs, he just isn't just crazy to play with them.

Corrie was found on the street and brought to one of our spay days. She was fearful at first but has come around so fast. Our clinic - full of people and dogs is the best training for any dog that has had a rough start. She loves toys and will grab every one of them to put in her crate, it is too cute. She is also very smart and energetic and will be a great companion for someone used to Jack russel mixes.

This is a sad story. The owner of this dog is a 14 year old boy. He lives in an apartment building and the landlord had decided to fix up the gardens and Marla, dug them up all the time. So he was forced to bring Marla to us. He comes to visit her every day. She is a beautiful yellow lab mix, healthy and well adjusted. And loyal, when Samuel, the boy shows up, she is beside herself happy to see him.

We found Gus in the streets. Maria Jose who takes care of many dogs in the area has been giving the family food for all their dogs. This little guy was sitting outside his gate when we drove up. He needs so many things before he is ready for adoption but we are on it and we are so glad to have him.

Comments:
This beautiful dog was adopted out locally as a pup. The owners were so negligent that they never loosened her puppy collar. It cut into her neck as she grew until it was 1 1/2 deep. This was reported and Franny was picked up. The collar was surgically removed and she has healed very well. She is high energy, very smart and very sweet.

This little guy was found dodging cars and terrified downtown. Someone picked him up and took him to Eileens. He's in pretty good shape but needs all his shots and to be neutered and fully de-wormed. He is so adorable and friendly and easy I have had him here with me. He sleeps on a pillow by my bed and never makes a sound. He's already leash trained and he's sweet sweet sweet with a little spunk mixed in.

We picked up these beautiful littermates to be spayed and neutered. When I took them back I told the owner how lovely I thought they were and she said she wanted me to have them. She already had 2 other dogs. These two are sweet, gentle loving dogs. They are like miniature golden retrievers and weigh only 8 and 10 kilos. They are just starting to play with toys, walk well on a leash and would be a gift to any dog lover.

Comments:
Felice was dropped off by a family that didn't want her anymore. She cried as she watched them drive away. We can not figure out why anyone would give up this sweet cuddly dog. She prefers humans to other dogs and would be happy to sit in someones lap for ever, although she does love to run.

Homer walked into the clinic on a spay day and volunteered for surgery. WE have let him out a few times expecting him to go home but he stays. He is handsome but skinny and has a scar between his eyes. He has been with a family at some time but definitely prefers life with us. He's a charmer.

  • Name: Jungle Pup - Jane
  • Approx. Birthdate: February 2015.
  • Status: Adopted.
  • Vaccinations: Two vaccinations.
  • Sex: Female, spayed.

Comments:
This pup was found in the jungle and we're convinced that she's part of the beach litter that we picked up last spring. The stupid guys on the beach dumped them all in the jungle so they wouldn't bother tourists and we never found all of them. When she arrived she was very shy and afraid. But our friend Brenda came over one day and brought her out of her shell. She's been a hugging, playing happy pup ever since.

This dog loves people. She's great on a leash and off, she will stay right with you. She gets along with every dog at the clinic and is a pleasure to have around. She really wants her own person. The only thing that she doesn't like is pesky little puppies when they try to climb on her.

Mary Louis is full of beans. She loves to run, comes when she's called and is leash trained. And she loves other dogs. She is a treat.


Detailed Adoption Process

The first and most important thing is finding out if your airline takes animals. Most charter flights do not take animals. Most major airlines usually do. There are temperature restrictions but these are usually a problem in July and August, and in January and February. Some airlines don’t worry about it at all. Most people think that animals from Mexico need to be quarantined, not true. The animal needs a certificate of health from a vet issued within a week of departure. They also need a certificate proving they have been vaccinated for rabies at least 30 days before departure. We supply a booklet with the official stickers taken off the vaccine bottles. Once all of that has been obtained you need a crate. It has to be big enough for the animal to stand up and turn around in. Some airlines are pickier then others about this but it’s better to be prepared. We have many crates that we are happy to offer for transportation for a donation if possible. On the day of departure one can take the dog or cat across to the mainland on the ferry if they are in a crate. We have an excellent van company that will transport people with animals to the airport. They need to be reserved in advance and are always very helpful. One should arrive 3 hours before departure. The papers already mentioned are all you need to check into your flight with your pet. We can also supply someone (for a small fee) who’s very familiar with the process to escorts travelers to the airport and stay with them until the dog or cat has been checked in just in case there’s a problem, he can bring the animal back to the island. When you reach your destination, they will bring your animal to you at the special cargo part of the baggage claim area; it’s usually in the same room. You simply go through customs and show them your papers, it usually goes very smoothly. Sometimes they ask a few extra questions but mostly it’s a breeze. Next you take your forever grateful pet home and love it as much as you can.
