Summertime in Puerto Vallarta has a different pace. We tend to see fewer tourists in town, and as such, there are less available flights heading up north. This is a challenging time for us, as we adopt most of our dogs to Canada and the US by relying on the amazing help of volunteers—tourists, actually—who are kind enough to take their flight back home bringing along a dog or two for us to their new home destination.
Right now, WestJet has already started their heat embargo, which means they will not allow any pets as cargo anymore until October. So we are urgently seeking Air Transat flyers to Vancouver and Edmonton who can help us take our dogs to their new families, who are already anxiously waiting for their new babies. We make it very easy for you. We have staff who will help you check the dogs in at the Puerto Vallarta airport, and you will meet up with a staff member at the arrival customs who will clear the dog. All it will take you is a little more time on both ends to help us. If you can help, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are interested in visiting and giving our dogs some cuddles, walks or just receiving puppy kisses at our state-of-the-art sanctuary just outside of town, contact us at email@example.com to schedule a tour. Tours leave from the Costco parking lot only on Thursdays during the summer months and reservations are required. Get involved…rescue, adopt, foster, volunteer, donate or educate. You can learn more about the SPCA Puerto Vallarta by checking us out at www.spcapv.com/home or on Facebook.
Adorable Dog in the Spotlight: Shady
This lovely girl is Shady, our floppy-eared pirate girl! When Shady was rescued and examined, she had ulcers in both eyes. Shady received surgery, but one of her eyes couldn’t be saved, so now Shady is a pirate girl! Her other eye sees well, only requires eye drops daily. Shady is about 2 years old, a Labrador mix girl, weighing 42 pounds. This pup has lots of energy and loves playtime with other dogs and her toys. She is very social and enjoys the company of her humans. Shady has been spayed, dewormed and vaccinated. We are now accepting applications for her adoption. If you think this gorgeous girl would be a great addition to your family, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for an application.
