Our biggest fundraising event is our annual Champagne Brunch. Held the last Sunday in January, this elegant occasion is not to be missed. More than an ordinary brunch, our event features unlimited champagne and a Silent Auction with dozens of donated items for sale. Additionally, there are raffle tickets sold for two booze baskets and a 50/50 raffle lottery, where the winning prize is one-half of the value of all of the tickets sold during the event. Tickets are limited, so plan ahead to attend. All net proceeds from this fundraiser go directly to help pay the operating expenses for the shelter, including food, medicine, utility costs and cleaning supplies.
Un Dia Ayudar – A Day for Help – Giving Thanks
Each November the annual Un Dia Para Ayudar (A Day for Help) is held on the Universidad Tecmilenio campus just south of the Galerias (Liverpool) shopping center in the Marina Mazatlán area. This FREE, fun, family event is full of music and dancing. More than 30 Civil Associations and charities – including Amigos de los Animales – have booths set up to explain their missions to the public and sell their wares. Food, drink and tasty desserts are available for purchase. Add this event to your fall calendar. Visit our booth and let us tell you more about ADLA.
This year we received a huge donation from Diamond Real Estate for building new observation cages. Thank you for your support and participation!
Periodically during the year, Amigos de los Animales participates in Adoption Fairs to promote the responsible adoption of our pets into their Forever Homes. Watch for announcements on local social media sites for more information about these events.
Bazaar (Thrift Store)
Amigos de los Animales has a bazaar (thrift store) located on the second floor of the animal shelter. Our supporters donate lightly used items including furniture, small appliances, clothing, shoes, glasses, dishes, cookware, linens, decorative items and jewelry. We also have a Pet Boutique filled with collars, leashes, toys, bowls and clothing. All of the proceeds from the sales of these items go directly to help pay the operating expenses of the shelter.
Please come by the bazaar Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. for a unique shopping experience.
We receive donations in the shelter, or if you want us to collect a donation at your home, please call 669 986.42.35, and we will gladly pick up your donations.
