This organization of volunteers is very committed and organized with passionate and friendly volunteers that make this opportunity to get these dogs out of the cages daily from 9-11 am. It is actually a fantastic work out and it is free! Best thing you can do in Playa for sure in the mornings ♥️ They also do a very good job of explaining what different types of personalities these dogs have and of course they have special needs some will want to walk quite a bit and some will just want to lie in the shade. These dogs are 100% full of love and appreciation and very happy to see us coming in
K9 Lifesavers Mexico
Who are we?
K9 Lifesavers Mexico is a non profit dog rescue organization located in Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo, Mexico.
Find out who we are and what we do
K9 Lifesavers Mexico AC was founded under the belief shared by the late Mahatma Gandhi that the greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.
Understanding that the dog is Mexico’s favorite household pet with almost 44 million dogs estimated as “in home” pets ( INEGI Informa survey 2021* ), the problem of abandoned and abused street dogs has exploded to almost twice those numbers.
With this in mind, K9 Lifesavers Mexico is commited to dog rescue and dog adoption.
We are all volunteers and we invite other dog lovers to join our movement in saving street dogs in Playa del Carmen and throughout Mexico.
Our organization is registered in Mexico as a Non Profit Civil Association. We work directly with other NGO’s and private individual rescuers that share our belief and vision of a better environment for dogs in Mexico. As well, we assist the local municipal authorities to ensure that street dogs in Playa del Carmen are caught & sterilized. When possible, they are moved into a Municipal shelter or in some fortunate cases into a temporary foster home.
Our goals are to reduce the number of street dogs specifically in Playa del Carmen and in Mexico as a whole, to support government and non government organizations in rescuing and saving street dogs, to promote massive sterilization campaigns of all dogs, to encourage dog adoptions in lieu of dog purchases, to lobby for government legislative reform in favor of animal right protections and to educate dog owners on their inherent responsibility regarding the dog’s welfare and the responsibility of dog ownership in general.

What Our Volunteers say
I walk with the dogs when I have free time here in Playa del carmen. The work, love & care the volunteers have for the dogs is amazing. Please support in any way you can
I’ve enjoyed helping out at the shelter and have convinced others to help out as well.
The joy in the dogs eye’s at getting out of their kennels for a walk and some cuddles is beautiful to see.
I am so thankful to have found this dog rescue and it’s awesome volunteer leaders! If it wasn’t for the volunteers, the dogs would be in there cages all day. This group has completely committed to these dogs, they have food, water, walks and lots of love! The dogs get so excited when we come to walk them ~ it instantly opens my heart knowing they will get the attention they deserve. Consistently showing up for them is so important. I highly recommend to others to come join us!!
