Humane Society of Cozumel Island

Last Weeekend’s HSCI’s Massive Spay/Neuter Campaign

May 12- 13 over 200 animals were fixed….

Editors Note:  For the next several weeks, we’re going to highlight Cozumel businesses that are really part of the island community.  Now that high season is over, it’s time to support Cozumel, by shopping local, assisting charities, hosting beach cleanups, working together or even offering discounts or local promotions.  If you’d like to nominate a business please reach out to


Last weekend, on Saturday and Sunday, the Humane Society of Cozumel Island hosted another massive spay and neuter campaign.  Invited veterinarians from Cancun, Merida, Playa del Carmen and Puerto Morelos assisted along with many hard working volunteers, and our resident vets and hard-working staff.

All in all it was a total success – over 200 animals were neutered. Thanks to everyone – especially the people who brought their pets in for a no-cost procedure.  Successful events like these are the work of a village – it takes a lot of hands to pull this off.   We need supplies, lodging for our volunteer vets, food and drinks for hungry volunteers, transporters, cleaning services and more.

Local restaurants  – Margaritaville and Papa Hogs –  generously supplied a hearty lunch for hungry volunteers, and other island restaurants donated snacks, coffee water and good cheer.


We’re always looking for more people to get involved – not only with these great campaigns but as kennel sponsors, monthly donors, puppy washers, fundraiser organizers and more.  If you’d like to make a donation to the Humane Society of Cozumel Island just go to their web site

Los días sábado y domingo de la semana pasada, la Sociedad Humanitaria de la Isla de Cozumel organizó otra campaña masiva de esterilización. Diversos veterinarios invitados procedentes de Cancún, Mérida, Playa del Carmen y Puerto Morelos apoyados por muchos voluntarios que trabajaron arduamente a la par de nuestros veterinarios residentes y personal.


En general fue un gran éxito, esterilizando a más de 200 animales. Muchas gracias a todos, en especial a las personas que trajeron a sus mascotas para recibir un procedimiento gratuito. Eventos exitosos como estos requieren del trabajo de una comunidad; se necesita de muchas manos para sacar esto adelante. Requerimos de suministros, hospedaje para nuestros veterinarios voluntarios, alimentos y bebidas para voluntarios hambrientos, transportadores, servicios de limpieza y más.


Restaurantes locales como Margaritaville y Poppa Hogs amablemente suministraron una abundante comida para los voluntarios hambrientos y otros restaurantes donaron refrigerios, agua para café y mucho entusiasmo.
