Help the SPA Save Cats and Dogs
By Megan Gabel
Thanks to all supporters who make it possible for the Sociedad Protectora de Animales (SPA) to exist. Because of you, we are able to help Brandy, a beautiful medium/large dog who has been at the SPA since October 2012. Only 2 months old, she was abandoned at the train station. Affectionate, energetic, and eager to play and explore, she is always keen to get out of her “casita” for a walk. As a no-kill shelter, the SPA continues to provide a safe haven for Brandy until such time that someone finally decides that she is the right dog for them to adopt.
Because of you, we can also help Sherlock, a wonderful flame point Siamese boy, about two years old, with the most intense blue eyes we’ve ever seen. Sherlock initially had a loving home as a kitten, but after his owner died he was left in a home where he was physically abused. Luckily, he was rescued and brought to the SPA before he was permanently damaged. He’s a nice, solid boy (aka chubby) who has thrived on his consistent supply of food. He’s very affectionate and loves having his belly rubbed.
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 resident 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 local children, helping to foster a love for animals in the next generation. None of this could happen without the financial help we receive through donations from you, our sponsors and donors. We receive no government support.
During the holiday season, please make a donation to the SPA. An anonymous donor has agreed to match (dollar for dollar) up to US$2,000 through December so please ACT NOW! Donate online at www.spasanmiguel.org/how-you-can-help/please-help-now/ or on our Facebook page www.facebook.com/spasanmiguel (via PayPal). You may also donate, by Mexican or US check, to Sociedad Protectora de Animales de San Miguel de Allende, A.C.

Checks may be dropped off at the SPA location at Los Pinos 7 (152 6124) or at any La Conexion location (mark envelope “SPA, PMB 18”).
