The Triumvirate


By Megan Gabel All for one and one for all! That’s Mica, Sansa, and Kira, six-month-old sisters who currently rule Puppy World at the SPA. They are medium-sized but still growing, and they constantly roust around with each other. Under usual circumstances, they would have been moved to individual casitas by now, but we don’t [...]

¡Gracias a Gabby y Xiomara!


By Jayn Corral A few weeks ago, we introduced you to mammas Gabby and Xiomara. Their newborn kittens had been brought to the SPA a few days before the mothers were found. Reunited with their little ones, Gabby and Xiomara shared motherly duties among the six babies, grateful to have each other to give them [...]

A Mother’s Love: Mitzy and Bailey

By Megan Gabel One day I opened the door to the SPA “casita” that Mitzy and Bailey call home so that they could run to the back dog exercise area and play. Normally, they both zoom to the back, eager for some playtime. I turned to walk to the back with them and saw Mitzy, [...]

Pets of the Month, June 2018

What is a Tabby Cat?


By Jayn Corral The SPA is fortunate to have a lot of cats and kittens categorized as a “tabby”—Sassy, Zeus, Zoe, Zahara, Xel-Ha, Aluxe, Delphi, Tina, Carlotta, Elsa, Suerte, and Gypsy. Tabbies are ideally suited to become part of human families. They are cute, intelligent, loving, outgoing, affectionate, playful, and merry. They can be moody [...]

Walking SPA Dogs is a Wonderful Experience!


By Megan Gabel When Pat visits San Miguel de Allende from Ottawa and Mike comes down from Tucson, they spend a good portion of their vacation volunteering for the SPA and walking dogs. Seems like a strange way to spend time when you’re on vacation, doesn’t it? But they obviously not only love the dogs [...]

An Act of Kindness

The mothers embracing

By Lucy Tobin When a man named Murray showed up at the SPA with a cardboard box, it was a relief from the recent weeks in which the SPA has been bombarded with animals who needed care because of willful neglect and abuse. The box had two litters of meowing, protesting babies: four kittens about [...]

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 [...]

Pets of the Month-May 2018


By Lynn Weisberg and Jayn Corral In May, we are honoring Gypsy and Vanderbilt (cats) and Shadow and Dancer (dogs). Gypsy and Vanderbilt both arrived at the SPA in September 2017 at about 1 year old. Gypsy literally came to the SPA on her own. She is an independent tortie girl wanting to be a [...]

The Saga of Dulce

By Megan Gabel Dulce, a very beautiful, medium/large-sized, snow-white Lab mix, was a street dog, the darling of the San Antonio neighborhood until we had the space to bring her to the safety of the SPA in November 2013 when she was about 2. Very calm, gentle, and friendly, she was eventually adopted and taken [...]
