SPCA of Puerto Vallarta News

Are you in town, with time on your hands, and looking to do something meaningful and rewarding with it? The SPCA of Puerto Vallarta is always looking for volunteers to help socialize our dogs at the sanctuary, but if dog cuddling is not your thing, we also need volunteers to help out at our Olas Altas Farmers Market booth starting again in November.

The market takes place every Saturday from 8 am to 2 pm. We sell SPCA T-shirts and other items, collect donations and provide information. It´s easy! It just takes up a Saturday of your time. You don´t have to commit for every Saturday, but maybe once a month? Wouldn´t that be something you can help us with? We are currently signing up volunteers. There will be 2 helpers every Saturday, so if you are available for a few Saturdays between November and April, please contact us at spcapv@gmail.com.

If you are interested in visiting any of our rescues at our state of the art sanctuary outside of town, contact us to schedule a tour. Tours leave from the Costco parking lot on Wednesdays during the Summer months and reservations per email are required.

We appreciate any donations you can bring for our rescues and if going to the sanctuary, please feel free to bring treats for the staff as they truly appreciate it. Items we always need include: collars, harnesses and leashes; toys and more toys (both stuffed and hard plastic, but no soft plastic as they can chew off pieces and swallow), large towels, blankets, sweaters and coats, and post-surgical cones (both the cone-shaped and soft or inflatable donut ones). Our rescues are now fed a totally raw diet so please refrain from bringing any dog food or treats.

The mission of SPCA de PV is to help fund and promote sterilization, adoption and healthcare efforts for companion animals in the Puerto Vallarta area, with the goal of eliminating the euthanasia of healthy and adoptable animals. To make donations via PayPal, select the “Donate” option on our Facebook page www.facebook.com/spcapv or on our website at spcapv.com/donate.

Get involved…rescue, adopt, foster, volunteer, donate or educate.

SPCA Adorable Dog in the Spotlight: Joey

This cute pup is Joey! Don´t let the Shepherd look fool you, he only weighs 10 pounds and fits perfectly on every lap! When Joey was found he had a severe injury on his left eye and the eye couldn´t be saved, so now Joey is a little pirate! Joey is about 2 years old, he loves playing with stuffed toys and with other dogs. He is very social and enjoys the company of his humans and getting cuddled. Joey has been neutered, dewormed and vaccinated. We are now accepting applications for his adoption. If you think this cute little guy would be a great addition to your family, contact us at spcapv@gmail.com for an application.
