October is 'Adopt a Shelter Dog' Month at SPCA-PV

October 3, 2018

October is “adopt a shelter dog month” but we know our friends consider every DAY an adopt-a-shelter dog day!!! Adopt don’t shop is our mantra!

A brand new month begins, as does our anticipation. Soon our friends will be returning to Vallarta and we will begin the “high” season.

Some events to mark on your calendar:

The Marina market will begin early, starting on Thursday, October 25. Be sure and stop by and say hello to Amanda Orlowski our terrific volunteer who will be there at the SPCA “booth”.

The Old Town Farmers Market will kick off on Saturday, November 3. Be sure to stop by and say hello to Wendy Urban and I volunteering at the SPCA “booth” kicking off the new season.

Regularly scheduled tours each Tuesday and Thursday to the sanctuary will begin November 6. Be sure and contact us at spcapv@gmail.com if you would like to visit.

And tickets are now on sale for our annual fundraiser “Evening Under the Stars” to be held on Saturday, November 24, in The Iguana Restaurant in the stunning Casa Kimberly boutique hotel. Remember 100% of the proceeds go to the animals as Janice Chatterton underwrites the entire evening.

Lots of goodies, like certificates to the best restaurants in town, will be included as raffle prizes or available for bid during the live and silent auctions. And please consider donating items for auction or as a raffle prize. It would be most appreciated. Our work with the rescues is totally supported by your donations.

Contact us at spcapv@gmail.com for more information and to purchase your tickets. Tickets are 2950 pesos each.
