Helping the ones who help dogs is the unofficial motto of Amigos de Rico
Foundation. Amigos de Rico is very excited to offer this beautiful hand
quilted king size quilt for raffle. Designed, hand quilted and donated by Charla Urioste.

Two years ago a little special needs dog was rescued by Ty and Sara Bateman. He came to them in a wheelchair, unable to use his backlegs.

Sara says, ” he was a small dog, but could charm the hardest of hearts”. Rico’s challenges proved to great and out of their grief, “Amigos de Rico” was born. ” we just saw a need to help those organizations already helping Yucatan’s dogs and help a few special needs dogs along the way”.



Amigos de Rico belief is education and sterilization are the long range
answers to the problem of dog overpopulation, neglect and abuse. This year Amigos de Rico has committed $140,000 pesos in Grants to Planned Pethood, PAAR, AFAD, Evolucion Uman Spay and Neuter and No Mas Perritos. Relying on friends and families support,  this is really their first fundraising effort, we have no overhead so one hundred percent of the donations go to help dogs.
