Pet Food Money Bank

Goal: $250,000 Pesos/ $14,000 USD


The S.P.A., San Miguel’s oldest no-kill shelter for cats and dogs, houses a combined average of 100 animals. We are able to save even more through our foster program, but that means more mouths to feed.

We provide shelter, care (vaccinations, sterilization, veterinary and medical care), and food for ALL of them until they become family companions—no matter how long it takes or even if it never happens. Last year, almost 100 animals (dogs and cats) were adopted from us. Dogs and cats are always on our waiting lists, ready to fill vacancies created by adoptions. We are proud of our adoption successes, knowing that we are helping to reduce the stray and homeless animal population in San Miguel de Allende.

As our cats and dogs become a part of families, we take in more animals. Some are so malnourished when they arrive that we must give them special supplemental food until they become stronger. Many of our animals, dogs in particular, have been at the S.P.A. for a long time (years) and, as they age, they require food designed to address the needs of older animals. Even some of our younger animals are sometimes on a unique diet. For these reasons, we have had to switch some of our residents from our regular, economy-priced food to other options. Because animals do not adjust well to changes in diet and we lack sufficient storage space, we need to raise money to cover the annual cost of feeding our cats and dogs, rather than seek donations of food.



In existence since 1980, the S.P.A. relies solely on financial donations to survive. We do not receive any government support. We economize, but need help covering this expense. That’s why we are, once again, turning to you.

Our goal is $250,000 pesos or $14,000 USD, 

100% of which will be applied to the annual cost of feeding our family-pets-to-be.



Please help us with this basic expense – the cost of food – by making a monetary deposit to our Pet Food Money Bank.  No amount you choose to donate is too small (or too big)! 

Please help even further by spreading the word and getting others to help. Ask a friend to donate and friends of friends.
