Whether you help by adopting, volunteering, or donating items or cash, your generosity is greatly appreciated!






Thank you! Your generous donations help provide lifesaving support for homeless dogs and cats. We rely on solely supporters like you to be able to continue this valuable work.


The happiest days at the shelter are when our precious animals walk out the door with their Forever Families – a real cause for celebration. 

The adoption process at Amigos de los Animales is quite simple. The fee for adopting a dog or puppy is $650 pesos; for a cat or kitten it is $450 pesos. This payment covers the cost of spaying or neutering, deworming and first vaccinations. 


Our community of volunteers is essential for running a successful shelter. All volunteer jobs require a time commitment of only 3 – 4 hours per week. Here are some ways you can help: 

  • Walk dogs;

  • Cuddle and socialize cats;

  • Plan, organize and execute a fund raising event;

  • Pick-up donated items;

  • Wash / groom dogs;
