About Us

The Humane Society of Cozumel Mexico is about working to help the animals in our community and we have been doing just that since 1996. Our clinic/shelter, which opened in April 1996, began with two rooms, no electricity, 24 kennels, one vet and one kennel worker. Today, we have 14 employees and care for over 300 animals per month, either found astray or given up by their owners for a variety of reasons. We do our best to care for them and place them in good, loving homes.

What you need to know about us! Our goal is to fully change the approach towards dog and cat overpopulation with an aggressive spay/neuter program both at the clinic and by utilizing mobile clinics. By finding loving homes for pets and providing education to the community, we can create responsible pet-people relationships and improve the welfare of animals.

Our work is made possible by many wonderful humans who contribute their time, talents and/or money to the cause for which we are immensely grateful.

Volunteers are a crucial part of our operation. They foster animals in need, escort them to their new homes, assist in fundraising, coordinate adoptions..and much more! If you are the type of person that enjoys hands-on work with the animals at the shelter, we can always use help walking and bathing dogs, playing with the dogs or cats, socializing those with special needs, etc. Being a volunteer is a great way to get to know about some of our shelter pets as well as make new friends with other volunteers!
