Animal shelter

Volunteer at the Animal shelter

This is an incredible place, run by incredible people, full of incredible animals and for those lovers of all things fluffy, furry or feathery, this is definitely somewhere you should visit while in Holbox.

'El Refugio Holbox' rescues all animals from in and around the Yucatan Peninsula and with a lot of love and care, slowly nurses them back to good health. They have a very successful animal adoption scheme and have even organised these overseas. Pass by to visit and/or make a donation if you can and enjoy petting the excitable dogs, not-so-shy raccoons and pelicans walking freely around the small grounds.

This is a charity, so please be generous – either through donations and/or volunteering.
