Ruby is looking for a home where she can enjoy the great outdoors. She is a Labrador mix, just two years old and weighing 38.5 pounds. She has a medium high energy level and is well behaved on her walks. She loves to joyfully run in the wide-open spaces. She gets along fine with other dogs but she is afraid of the felines. Ruby can be a bit shy initially but warms up quickly and enjoys the company of her people. She has been spayed, dewormed and vaccinated. Now she is looking for her forever home and is available for adoption. If you are looking for a terrific companion to enjoy exploring, contact us at for an application to adopt Ruby.

SPCA de PV or Sociedad Protectora y Compasiva por los Animales de Puerto Vallarta (Protective and Compassionate Society for the Animals of Puerto Vallarta) was founded in Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco Mexico, in 2007 by a long term resident originally from California, Janice Chatterton.

We opened our unique sanctuary in January of 2012 on the outskirts of Puerto Vallarta. We are a no-kill shelter and can house up to 130 animals at once. We rescue and find permanent homes for over 200 animals each year.

Our main focus is to rescue the abused, homeless animals from Puerto Vallarta’s streets and place them in foster homes in both the United States and Canada until permanent homes are available. We are not supported by the government, corporations, foundations or businesses. We fully function on private donations. Animals are often found living on the streets after being discarded and/or extremely abused. We devote ourselves to their physical and emotional rehabilitation and invite everyone to come and interact with the animals at our private shelter on our weekly escorted tours.
