Do you wonder how you can support the SPA?
By Megan Gabel
As a no-kill animal shelter housing around 100 dogs and cats, we could sure use some help with our monthly expenses! The casita program is one way to underwrite some of those costs. Check out the beautiful, hand-painted, personally inscribed Big Bone Designer Plaques created for new sponsors of the SPA casita fundraiser program. Makes you want to have your own, doesn’t it? It’s not just for dogs, but you can arrange your very own Big Fish Designer Plaque to be displayed on the cattery. The cost is only US$30/360 pesos per month or US$360/4,320 pesos per year. Look how happy Gűera, Dorita, and Jessie are now that they have sponsors for their casitas!
Is it celebration time? Birthday? Anniversary? For the animal-loving person or couple who has everything, why not donate to the SPA in honor of that special occasion? Not only will we send the person who makes the donation a thank you note, but we will notify the honoree of the gift and best wishes.
Is now a good time to join or renew your SPA membership? Individual memberships are US$40/500 pesos and family memberships (two-person limit) are US$50/600 pesos per year. In addition to benefitting the SPA, members can take advantage of discounts from our preferred providers.
You can sign up for each of these fundraisers or make other donations on our website (www.spasanmiguel.org). 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.” On the same page, in the “Become a Member” section, you can sign up for an individual or family membership. The “In Honor Of” section is where to make a gift in honor of someone’s special occasion. Of course, you can sign up for all of these programs or make a general donation at our office, Los Pinos 7, 152-6124, Monday-Saturday, from 9-3 at our table in Plaza Civica (Thursdays from 11 to 1).
