Pet Food Money Bank—Please Deposit Pesos and Dollars Today!



By Megan Gabel

The SPA, San Miguel’s only no-kill shelter for dogs and cats, houses a combined average of 100 animals and often has more in foster homes. We provide shelter, care (vaccinations, sterilization, medical care), and food for them until they become family companions—no matter how long it takes. Last year, 50 dogs and 99 cats were adopted from us. Once we have an adoption, vacancies are filled from our waiting lists.

Some of our aging cats and dogs need food designed for older animals. Even younger animals have health conditions that require a unique diet. As a result, we’ve had to switch some of our residents from our regular, economy-priced food to different options. Animals in foster care usually are on special diets. These combined factors have caused our food costs to increase greatly this past year. Our goal is to raise 250,000 pesos (about US$14,500).

Please help us with this basic expense—the cost of food—by making a monetary deposit to our Pet Food Money Bank, 100 percent of which will be applied to our annual cost of feeding our family-pets-to-be, such as Zeus and Mica. Because animals do not adjust well to changes in diet and we lack sufficient storage space, we need to cover the cost of feeding them the food they are accustomed to eating. We rely solely on financial donations to survive and receive no government support. We economize but need help from our supporters.

You can donate to the SPA’s Pet Food Money Bank by (1) Mexican or US check to “Sociedad Protectora de Animales de San Miguel de Allende, A.C.” or (2) US check to “San Miguel Community Foundation” (for a US tax receipt) (mark as for the SPA). Your check may be dropped off at the SPA, Los Pinos 7, 152 6124, or at any La Conexion location (mark envelope “SPA, PMB 18”). Or mail your check to Sociedad Protectora de Animales (SPA), Los Pinos 7, Col. Lindavista, San Miguel de Allende, GTO, 37736, Mexico; or SPA, PMB No. 18, 220 N. Zapata Hwy. No. 11, Laredo, Texas 78043-4464 USA. Cash donations should be made at our office only (Los Pinos 7). PayPal donations may be made online at or by clicking the “donate” button on our Facebook page:

Please don’t delay, deposit funds today! We need and appreciate your help. Thank you!
