Everything we do at Pro Animal Melaque is made possible by the generosity of animal lovers in our community and beyond.  None of this would happen without the donations of prizes, time, and energy from our dedicated volunteers and sponsors.

While we depend upon the success of our fundraising events, we also rely on individual donations from supporters throughout the year.  We can receive cash payments in Melaque or Barra, and have PayPal links on this webpage and our Facebook page.


Our first Bike-a-thon was held in 2014, and it quickly became our largest fundraiser of each year.  We offer two routes (one around 7K, the other around 14K) through the countryside, with refreshments along the way and at the end.  Cyclists receive a special event t-shirt, and either ride just for fun or solicit donors to sponsor them to add to the fundraising effort.  In conjunction with the Bike-a-thon, we raffle a new mountain bike each year.  Loads of fun for everyone involved.


Bingo & Silent Auction

Almost everyone loves Bingo & almost everyone shows up to play. The venue is packed with friendly people with lots of Bingo cards (yeah!), drink, food & good spirits to support our cause. We play many games for prizes, offer loads of door prizes & a have a fantastic Silent Auction.  The Silent Auction is open to everyone, so be sure to stop by even if you don’t play Bingo.  Watch for this fundraiser in December


Cribbage tournament & silent auction
Our Cribbage Tournament is a huge success held in February each year. We attract beginners to experts from all over the area. Ticket sales are limited to 80 people.  The top four players receive prizes of dinners or gift certificates donated by local businesses. There is a Silent Auction with everything from scrumptious homemade brownies to jewelry to local services and original art work. A 50/50 raffle adds to the excitement & fund raising success. Even if you don’t play cribbage, please stop in to bid on auction items.

Yard sale
Every Spring the town is abuzz while waiting for EL BAZAR (The Yard Sale).   You name it, we probably have it for sale. Clothes, bedding, books, kitchenware & appliances, electronics, computers, furniture. The gates open & we gasp at the stampede of people pouring through the doors. Everyone wins! The proceeds from the sale are split with the Asilo de Ancianos (Senior Home) in Cihuatlan.  Item donations are accepted throughout the year, so please keep us in mind when you are doing your spring cleaning.
