Nora Huricane in Puerto Vallarta: How and Where to Help
Updated: September 1, 2021.
Hurricane Nora left human tragedies and substantial material damages over the weekend after torrential rains and heavy winds in Puerto Vallarta and many more places in the state of Jalisco, including Cihuatlán, La Huerta, Tomatlán, Ciudad Guzmán and more.
In Puerto Vallarta, two rivers burst, destroying a bridge Downtown, flooding roads and bringing a building to collapse. Pictures and videos show flooding, felled trees, damaged roads and power lines across several states.
As always, the community itself, along with different volunteers, organizations, businesses are offering great help to those in need, and we’d like to share that information with you, with information collected from all those kind people that are helping, because by helping we can make a difference in many people’s lives.
We’ll keep updating this list so please come back to see the updated information.
Refugio Canino Atardecer
The Sunset Canine Shelter needs us! It was also affected by the #HuracanNora and 34 dogs had to be evacuated, now they ask for our support.
All the animals managed to evacuate them but they are full of mud and need volunteers to bathe them on the weekend.
In the same way, if there is a way they can contribute in kind or donations, they would help a lot:
- Food from Costco (yellow one)
- High camping beds because thanks to them the dogs did not drown when the water level exceeded them
- Food dishes
