A hero for

All animals

We’ve been saving lives and brightening futures since 2007.

The SPCA  Puerto Vallarta, was founded in Jalisco Mexico, in 2007 by a long term resident originally from California, Janice Chatterton. We opened our sanctuary in January of 2012 on the outskirts of Puerto Vallarta. We are a no-kill shelter and can house up to 130 animals at once (before Hurricane Nora). We rescue and find permanent homes for over 200 animals each year. Read more


Hurricane Nora caused extensive damage to the shelter in 2021, and we are actively rebuilding.  Once we can reopen, SPCA PV will have many puppies, dogs, kittens, and cats awaiting a new loving home.  They each have a story to tell.

There are countless ways you can help us. You can make a donation (however big or small), join our fundraiser events, or volunteer your time and home as a foster parent. With you help, we hope to make a difference in the lives of these wonderful animals.

Donating these items are as good as a pat-pat.

Our furry friends at SPCA Puerto Vallarta need lots of TLC. You can help us spread the love by buying from our wish lists.  There’s plenty you can choose from to make animals feel safe, comfortable and cared for.
