    The Sociedad Protectora de Animales de San Miguel de Allende, A.C. is the only no-kill shelter for dogs and cats in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. In operation since 1980, we house approximately 100 animals. We also have a clinic within our facilities which takes care of our resident animals and offers lower-cost medical care for pets owned by the public. Our website (https://www.spasanmiguel.org) has information about adopting (including photos and videos of our available animals), volunteering, donating, how to help, our clinic, and more. To donate instantly by PayPal, please click this link: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=DSAVMCCDAEKKW The S.P.A. does not receive any government support and relies upon donations to keep our doors open.

    A good way to stay up to date is by following us on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/spasanmiguel) which also albums of our adoption success stories. More information is available by emailing

    Our video gives you an idea of who we are and what we do: https://youtu.be/6grULRHi6Sk

    We have many goals at the S.P.A. We strive to educate our community about the importance of taking care of their pets and giving them the health care they need, i.e., vaccinations and sterilization, and we provide economical options to satisfy these responsibilities. We would like to increase awareness and appreciation of animals so that others can enjoy the magic that comes from owning and cherishing a beloved pet. Teaching people to be kind to and tolerant of animals is another one of our goals. Regarding our own S.P.A. resident animals, we are searching for permanent, loving homes for all of them. We also want to provide the best possible living conditions for our animals while they are at the S.P.A., waiting for their forever families.

    We hope you will join us in supporting these goals.
