SPCA Adorable Dog In The Spotlight: Happy

Yep…he was named appropriately! This is one very happy young boy. Happy is a high energy guy who loves his playtime. He is a Boxer/Labrador mix about a year old and weighing almost 42 pounds. He would make a good family dog as he just loves his people. He enjoys cuddles and is very good on leash. He is looking for an active family who

will take him for long walks exploring. Happy is good with all other dogs he meets but he will chase the felines. He has been neutered, dewormed and vaccinated. He is now ready for a forever family of his own. If your family is looking for a fun loving and happy-to-lucky guy, contact us at spcapv@gmail.com for an application to adopt Happy.

Things have been really busy at the Olas Altas Farmers Market these past weeks.  Be sure and come by to visit us.  You can find us there each Saturday from 9:00 am until closing at 2:00 pm.  The market is located in Lázaro Cárdenas Park.  This is in addition to our presence at the Marina Art & Market each Thursday from 6:00 pm until 10:00 pm.  Be sure to come by and say hello.  You can pick up one of our special “Kiss my Mutt” t-shirts or a special bag made locally by our friend Lisa Love.  All these items and a few other goodies can be yours for a small donation which helps support our rescue efforts.  Your donations are always welcome and needed!

We have scheduled tours to our sanctuary, by reservation only, on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  If you have your own transportation, please let us know.  To reserve a spot on a tour, contact us at spcapv@gmail.com.

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.  Those items we ALWAYS need include:  collars and leashes; toys and more toys! both stuffed and hard plastic (no soft plastic as they can chew off pieces and swallow); large towels; blankets; sweaters and coats; post-surgical cones (both the cone shaped and donut inflatable ones).  Our rescues are now fed a total raw diet so please refrain from bringing any dog food or treats, but we do have healthy homemade treats available (at cost) for the dogs when you visit the sanctuary.

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.
