What Fun! Sponsor a casita, see your name in lights, and help the SPA!

By Megan Gabel

How about starting the new year with a personally-inscribed Big Bone or Big Fish Designer Plaque displayed on a SPA doggy casita or the cattery, connoting your support of the SPA? We have some snazzy bones and fish in place, hand-painted by board member/artist Suzanne Castner. Pictured here are only a few of her wonderful creations. Makes you want to get one for yourself, right? Well, lucky you! We just happen to have space for more, so sign up now!

As a no-kill shelter housing around 100 animals, the SPA could use some help providing for our resident animals’ food, care and shelter. The casita program is a way to underwrite some of those costs so the SPA can continue its work. This annual commitment is a very important fundraiser to us.

We commemorate your contribution with a personally inscribed plaque. As you can see, some people have their own names inscribed or choose inscriptions to honor their children, pets or friends. The cost is only US$30/360 pesos per month or US$360/4320 pesos per year. You can sign up on our website ( Click on “How To Help” at the top. Then choose “Support Our Fundraisers.” Scroll down on that page to “Sponsor a Doggy/Kitty Casita.” For 12 monthly payments, choose your casita type and click on “Subscribe.” For an annual payment, scroll a little further down, select the casita type, and choose “Buy Now.” Payment can also be made in cash or peso equivalent at Plaza Civica (Thursdays from 11am to 1pm) or at the SPA, (Monday-Saturday, from 9am-3pm.)

If you have any questions about the casita program, please email us at
