About Us


The mission of San Pancho Animales is to eliminate animal suffering primarily in the pueblo of San Francisco, Nayarit, Mexico. We strive to provide education and veterinary services to shape an environment of care and compassion towards animals.

San Pancho Animales comprises a group of volunteers dedicated to providing free spay/neuter services to animals in the community. We are a USA non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. Volunteers and a staff of Mexican veterinarians host at least one clinic each year, sometimes two if adequate funds are available.

We also provide, when needed, emergency services, which include but are not limited to spaying and neutering between clinics, assisting owners with emergency care due to injury or illness, and assistance with food in dire situations, providing foster care when needed and encouraging positive relationships with owners and their companion animals.

We provide adoption services for dogs and cats (and occasionally donkeys, chickens, horses, and cows). We assist people with animals that are adopted and will be traveling out of the country. This assistance is often payment for required vaccinations, certificates and permits, cages, and sometimes contributions to airfare.

Our involvement with animal rescue has its moments of anguish, but is usually followed by pure joy for the animal being adopted and the wonderful humans who open their hearts to these special cases.
