PATA Manzanillo has been asked to get the word out to the Manzanillo foreign community interested in sending donations to the "four legged furry victims" of the Tabasco and Chiapas floods that have left 400,000 people homeless. |
A Mexican national coalition of 53 animal welfare groups from around Mexico, called Asociacion Protectoras de Animales de Mexico (APASDEM), has been coordinating relief efforts by gathering supplies of food and medication to send to the local animal group, Asociacion Protectora de Animales de Tabacso (APAT), that lost its shelter in the disaster.
For Spanish speakers, the link to the APASDEM relief efforts is: [www.apasdemexico.org]
HELPING WITHIN MEXICO:
A drop off station is now open in Manzanillo at Radio K-liente in the Soriana parking lot (in front of the movie theater). Please consider dropping off jumbo sized dog and cat food dry food (wrapped in water-resistent garbage bags to prevent spoiling), tinned wet food, medication, rolls of tear-easy garbage backs (to make throwable packages to toss to animals stranded on roof tops) and other pet supplies.
Donations should have the following clear lable afixed to the outside:
DESTINO: ASOCIACIÓN PROTECTORA DE ANIMALES DE TABASCO A.C. (APAT)
Y/O LILIANA TODD SALGADO Y/O BRENDA RODRÍGUEZ AGUILAR"
**All donations will be sent to the Asociacion Protectora de Animales de Tabasco (APAT) as their shelters were completely destroyed and it is near impossible to find food for people, let alone animals.**
Cash deposits are being channeled to the proper animal groups associated with "ground zero" operations:
