Costa Rica is known for it’s beautiful mountains, beaches and the hospitality, but what is never in the tourism brochures is the overpopulation of stray animals, at least in the area of Jacó.
And this is why the Asociación Pro Bienestar Animal, also known as McKee Jacó, will hold their annual fundraiser on Nov. 11. The 2011 Annual McKee Fiesta will be a dance and dinner at the Amapola Hotel in Jacó. The date is a Friday.
The funds from the festivities will go to the rescue and rehabilitation of homeless animals in the Jacó area. There will be live music by the local band Chupacabra, dancing, food and a glass of wine all-inclusive with the purchase of your ticket. And to make a little extra for the animals there will also be a silent auction and raffle, the organization said.
