We work hard to end the abuse, neglect, cruelty and diseases that the street dogs in the Maya Riviera suffer daily. To tackle this, our approach is broad—it truly does take a village. Get involved & join us!
We work with the best vets in the area to create medical treatment plans
We don't have a shelter - we rely on local families, expats & tourists to help foster
In case adoptions don't happen quick enough, we rely on fosters abroad
From aiport departures to admin to promotional tasks - we always need help
See how amazing the transformations are. From complete neglect, these resilient pups start the journey of their new lives. With medical treatment, shelter, quality food and lots of love, they make the most miraculous recovery.
200+ DOGS RESCUED IN JUST 1 YEAR!
We are completely volunteer and donation based. Your contribution directly saves lives - providing life saving cancer treatment, amputations, treating anemia or mange, heart worm, even extreme trauma therapy - the list of medical care our rescue pups receive is extensive. We keep our adoption fees as low as we can and rely on donations to continue to help these awesome street dogs have a new chance at life!

Who We Are
Though we had never met before, we quickly became friends through our shared passion to help the neglected dogs we see in the streets near our homes in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. Since forming Re/Vida Rescue a year ago, we see what a difference we can make in rescuing the dogs - but also what a difference the dogs can make on the lives of their fosters and forever families. Being part of the journey of saving a dog is an incredible experience for everyone involved and we hope to grow our team to save many more!
