I know that we have a lot of pet owners as members but I also know that a lot of people, my wife included, have a fear of stray dogs. On her first visit back in Dec 2000 strays were just about everywhere we walked, and wandered through the open air restaurants that we ate in and made her uneasy a lot of the time. Those days are gone thanks to many successful programs run by Cozumel’s Humane Society and we really saw the difference this trip. We never ran into a stray dog while out walking the streets, nor did we see any stray cats at either of the resorts we stayed at and I think about the only place we may have seen a stray was walking down a side street late one evening. Like divisions of the Humane Society everywhere Cozumel’s chapter is driven by dedicated volunteers & donations, both financial & of goods & supplies.
Hopefully knowing a bit about their needs and where they are located you can be of help. Perhaps you have a pet bed, or carry cage not being used, or any of the other things needed for daily care that just occupy space in your basement but might fit into your luggage, or that you could ship to one of the many dedicated "mules" that bring supplies on their trips. Maybe you could become a "mule". Anything helps, and it doesn't have to be in the form of a cash donation unless that's what makes you feel good. With that in mind I drove to the facility & took some photos including one of the sign you need to watch for while driving what can be a busy road depending on time of day.

AND just to be sure you can find it without any difficulty here's how it's done from the main street in town running along the waterfront.
Drive south past the Park Royal, and watch for the traffic light, and get over to the left TURN lane and turn left on the green light. You'll drive about 1/2 mile or 3/4 Km (past the water purification plant) watching for the large sign in my photos. It's about 3 feet X 4 feet and easily seen. You will turn right, go down the dirt road and take the first turn to your right (there's a small sign) drive along side of the sports field and about where it ends you'll see the final sign marking a turn to the left. It's just a short way down the street.
If you are coming from the southern resorts the traffic light is just after the Pemex station, and you will turn right.
Be alert in the area of the traffic light because if there are cruise ships at either of the piers along here there can be a lot of pedestrian traffic crossing the streets.
