SPCA de PV: Meet Faith

Adorable Dog In The Spotlight

Faith is a beautiful Labrador mix, about two years old and weighing 55 pounds. She has a medium energy level and is good with other dogs as long as they are not too rambunctious! She doesn’t like the felines, however. She is good with her humans and well behaved on her walks. Faith has been spayed, dewormed and vaccinated. She is now ready for her forever home and is available for adoption. If this well behaved young lady is just what you have been looking for, contact us at spcapv@gmail.com for an application to adopt Faith.

Things are winding down here as the low season we will soon begin.  April 28 will be the final opportunity for you to come and visit us and all the other incredible vendors at the Olas Altas Farmers Market.

We have had some wonderful visitors during this season.  Special thanks to our friends who recently left some donations at the markets or at the sanctuary:  Sharon Orlowski, Joy & Carrie Crocker, Myllin & Joan Misura, John & Lynne Winkelmann, Kim & Dennis Flatgard, Alison Ross, Roxanne & Glenn Mackenzie, Bev & Brian Weaver and Nelson Bailey.

At this time of the year we also lose our volunteer drivers and tour guides who return to their homes out of country for the low season.  Consequently, Thursday April 26 will be the final regularly scheduled tour out to the sanctuary.  After that date, special arrangements will be necessary.  Contact us at spcapv@gmail.com.

We want to take this opportunity to thank all our wonderful volunteers.  We couldn’t do it without you!  See you again next year.

Be sure and come by to visit us at the Olas Altas Farmers Market each Saturday from 9:00 am until closing at 2:00 pm through April 28.  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.

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.
