Goal: $250,000 Pesos/ $13,500 USD
The S.P.A., a no-kill shelter, houses an average of 50 dogs and 50 cats. 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 and provide food, care, and shelter for them until they, too, become family companions. Some animals are so malnourished when they arrive that we must give them special supplemental food until they become stronger. Many of our animals 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 require a unique diet due to health conditions that have developed. For these health reasons, we have had to switch some of our residents from our regular, economy-priced food to other options.
Our foster program helps to provide a safe place for animals who are too young to take in, have special needs, or for whom we have no space at the moment. We are able to save more animals by fostering, but this program means more mouths to feed.
Of course, we are responsible for the health, well-being, and care of all our resident cats and dogs no matter how long they are at the S.P.A., waiting for their forever homes! All our animals routinely receive vaccinations and are sterilized.
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 our basic expenses. That’s why we are turning to you for help.
Our goal is to raise $250,000 pesos or $13,500,000 USD.
No amount you choose to donate is too small (or too big)! Please spread the word. Ask a friend to donate and friends of friends. Every contribution helps!

Please make a monetary deposit to our Pet Food Money Bank, 100% of which will be applied to our annual cost of feeding our family-pets-to-be. Because animals do not adjust well to changes in diet and we lack sufficient storage space, we need to cover our cost of feeding them with the food we have determined that they need, rather than seek donations of food.
