The Humane Society of Cozumel Island has lost an Angel.  Irene Apple Applegate, owner of Dive Paradise, was a supporter from the beginning.  Her involvement started with her own personal rescues, Saborine & Manchas and continued with her support of dogs at the HSCI who were in the worst possible condition.  She would regularly look over the HSCI FB page to find a story that would pull at her heart.  Having the HSCI President as her friend & neighbor made it easy for her to sponsor a dog in need.  She took on the worst cases of abuse, neglect, disease and abandonment.  She made it financially possible to treat and rehabilitate each dog from day one of arrival to its day of adoption.  She kept up with every dog she sponsored and we shared the photos of them in their

In honor of our dear Apple we have set up a fund to help finance two upcoming 3 day Spay & Neuter Campaigns.   Your name will be posted on the campaign banner for both campaigns. Here are two ways you can help the HSCI in memory of Apple.

La Sociedad Humana de la Isla de Cozumel honra a “Apple”

Así es como las donaciones a la HSCI se pueden hacer para honrar un icono de Cozumel

La Sociedad Humanitaria de Cozumel ha perdido un ángel. Irene Apple Applegate, dueña de Dive Paradise, fue una patrocinadora de la Sociedad Humanitaria desde el comienzo. Su involucración comenzó con sus propios perros rescatados: Manchas & Saborine y continuo patrocinando a los perros en las peores condiciones. Por lo regular, Apple dedicaba su tiempo en la página de Facebook de la Sociedad Humanitaria de Cozumel y leía las historias de los perros rescatados. Buscaba y encontraba las historias que más le llegaran al corazón y encontró a varios que necesitaban de su ayuda. Teniendo a la presienta de la sociedad humanitaria de amiga y vecina, ayudo mucho a que Apple haga lo que quiso siempre hacer: ayudar a los animales. Se ocupaba de los perros que necesitaran más amor, ya sea por abuso, lesionados, o los más afectados de cualquier enfermedad. Ella se encargaba siempre de proporcionar financieramente la rehabilitación de los perros y que puedan ser adoptados. Lo que la hacía plenamente alegre, Apple hacia seguimientos de los perros que patrocinaba y compartía las fotos de sus nuevos hogares, felices y sanos al fin.

En honor a nuestra querida Apple, hemos creado una cuenta para ayudar dos campañas de esterilización de la Sociedad Humanitaria de Cozumel. Los nombres de los donadores serán escritos en la lona de las dos campañas. Esto es una manera de ayudar a la Sociedad Humanitaria en memoria de Apple.
