Welcome to our PAWesome site!

 Sociedad Protectora y Compasiva por los Animales de Puerto Vallarta (Protective and Compassionate Society for the Animals of Puerto Vallarta)

Founded in Puerto Vallarta, 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.  We rescue and find permanent homes for over 200 animals each year.

Our main focus is to rescue the abused, homeless animals from Puerto Vallarta’s streets and place them in foster homes in both the United States and Canada until permanent homes are available.  We are not supported by the government, corporations, foundations or businesses. We fully function on private donations.  Animals are often found living on the streets after being discarded and/or extremely abused.  We devote ourselves to their physical and emotional rehabilitation and invite everyone to come and interact with the animals at our private shelter on our weekly escorted tours.

Sally HeffronI met Blossom (then Dora) when she was a street dog feeding a hidden litter of 6 pups a few months ago. We made sure she had a place to stay, food and a bed. She is a lovely pup always looking for belly rubs, and loved interacting with the other dogs in the neighborhood. You are lucky to have her, and she very lucky to have you!3   ·  18 hours ago
