Join Us in Saving Cats and Dogs
By Megan Gabel
Thank you, SPA supporters, for making it possible for the Sociedad Protectora de Animales to exist. Because of you, we are able to help Bailey, now almost 2 years old, who came in with her mother, Mitzy, to whom she is devoted. She was abandoned with barbed wire tied around and imbedded in her neck, requiring surgery to remove it and time and treatment to heal. She’s perfect now and waits for her forever home with her mother—we don’t want them to be separated.
Because of you, we are able to give Sheba the care she deserves. Adopted from here as a kitten, she was returned at age three because the adopters’ new rental didn’t accept pets. This lovely calico girl, who was described as friendly and affectionate, is so frightened she is still hiding after months here. With no need of medical care or extra nourishment, Sheba’s requirements are patience and kindness until she is secure enough to recover from her abandonment. Because of you, we can give Sheba all the time she needs.
For over 35 years, the SPA has been the only no-kill shelter for cats and dogs in San Miguel, dedicated to finding loving homes for our 100 animals. We have over 200 adoptions annually. Our on-site clinic provides veterinary services to low-income families, and we offer education and community service opportunities to area children, helping to foster a love for animals in the next generation. None of this could happen without the financial help we receive from you. Donations are our only source of income.
During the holiday season, please make a donation to the SPA. An anonymous donor has agreed to match up to US$3,000 donated through December so please ACT NOW!

The cost of caring for all of our animals and for the beloved pets of our clients is more than 2,000,000 pesos per year. All funds received will be used to support our animals and to ensure that the mission of the SPA endures. Please make as generous a gift as you can.
