Saturday’s Old Town Farmers Market is going strong and we appreciate all the visitors who stop by and say hello, pick up some of our merchandise which is available for sale or leave a donation.

2016 Calendar- Call for models
We still have the three summer months available in our 2016 SPCA calendar. If you would like to have you pet’s picture on a page of the calendar, contact mmccoy777@aol.com. You pay a $100 USD donation, which covers the printing. The calendars sell for $250 pesos, all of which goes directly to support our animal rescue programs.

Flight Companions Needed
We have an ongoing need for transporting dogs to the States and Canada. The SPCA will take care of all the details and cost of transporting the animals. All you have to do is show up at the airport in Vallarta and one of our volunteers will meet you with the animal and get it checked in for the flight. Another SPCA volunteer will meet the plane at your destination and pick up the dog. Stop by our table at the Old Town Farmers Market and we will answer any questions you might have.
Get involved…rescue, adopt, foster, volunteer, donate or educate. Contact us at spcapv@gmail.com. You can learn more about the SPCA Puerto Vallarta by checking us out at www.spcapv.com/home or on Facebook.

Volunteer of the Week – Janet Holmes
Janet is a charity photographer who started “Frog out of Water”. She and her partner Miles spent time with us at the sanctuary taking incredible photos of our furry family which greatly enhance their placement opportunities. You can check out her work on her website http://www.frogoutofwater.ca/Pages/Animal-Rescue.
Thank you and Miles for all the gorgeous photos you took while here.

How to become a volunteer? Volunteers are needed all over! We have pawesome volunteers in Canada, the United States and of course here in Puerto Vallarta.

Visit our Sanctuary
Come spend a rewarding afternoon cuddling the animals at Puerto Vallarta’s SPCA Sanctuary. Our dogs and cats are awaiting “forever homes” and your help is needed to jump start their socialization. The goal is to get these animals adjusted and ready to interact in the real world. The majority of the SPCA animals either come from extremely abusive situations or they have been abandoned. Your love and attention can make up for that sad history. During your visit, you can interact with the animals and even take a dog (or two or three) for a walk. You can also play with the animals, assist the vet or help with dinner time.

Scheduled Tours
We have scheduled tours each week and vehicle space is limited. We meet in the Costco parking lot. You can either caravan in your own vehicle or ride with us out to the Sanctuary (reservations necessary). The length of the tour is at the discretion of our visitors and can be from one to four hours in length. Please feel free to bring donations and treats for sanctuary staff as they truly appreciate it.
We have also begun scheduling tours from Nuevo Vallarta so don’t hesitate to contact Nicole Martin at nicole@cupocity.com to make a reservation. To see all the animals available for adoption, visit our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/spcapv. Go to Photos where you will also find individual Albums for all the animals available as well as a bit of their history.
