Join us at the fair
By Lynn Weisberg
We are so pleased and honored that the SPA has been invited to participate in a Country Fair that the parents and friends of La Academia Internacional de San Miguel de Allende is organizing! What could be cuter than kids and kitties? The school has the kids, and we’ll bring the kitties. The fair will feature live music, a variety of entertainers, carnival games, artisans’ tables, food booths, a silent auction, and other fun activities.
Sat, Jun 8, 12-7pm
San Ramón Hotel Balneario
Km. 3 on the road to Dolores Hidalgo
At our table, we will have T-shirts, caps, informational materials, and other goodies, in addition to some of the sweetest kittens ever. Please support this amazing school and your local animal shelter, while enjoying the ambiance at the first ever Country Fair! The SPA will also have a table at the Instituto Fair in July, so watch for more information on this event.
One of the goals of the SPA is to educate children about the proper care and handling of animals. To this end, we have gone to area schools and have talked about proper nutrition, the importance of sterilization, the need for shelter, love, and regular medical check-ups. The way their eyes light up when we bring puppies or kittens is really amazing and reinforces our belief that kids intuitively bond with animals, but need to learn how to be responsible for them. It is so much fun to watch kids play with pets; it can bring a smile to even the grumpiest faces! We are sure to see some of those smiles at the Country Fair when the children get a chance to meet some of our kittens.

Speaking of smiles, please take a moment to watch a video on YouTube (http://youtu.be/gC9J_L2sQb4) called “Lucky Pound Hound.” Not only will it make you smile, simply by looking at the video, you’ll be making a contribution to two of your favorite animal rescue groups in town, SAMM and SPA!
