About Us

PEACEAnimals, a registered Mexican charity (AC), responds to the challenges of the extreme overpopulation of pets and homeless cats and dogs in the area of Puerto Vallarta and beyond, by offering an education program in public and private schools and a free mobile spay/neuter clinic program.

The PEACEAnimals mobile clinic goes to towns, neighborhoods and ranch and farm areas to spay and neuter an average of 122 animals for every 3.5 -day clinic week. PEACEAnimals offers a minimum of 39 clinic weeks annually. In 2019, the charity sterilized 5,982 cats and dogs and treated them for fleas, ticks, lice and mange, if present.

Pet owners bring their cats and dogs for registration at approximately 7:30 am and pick them up at approximately 1:00 pm. Some animals are healthy, while others are emaciated and diseased. Pregnancies are terminated on request by owner. Euthanasia is provided with request by owner if animal too critically ill or injured to survive. All services are free. The three licensed vets and vet tech perform surgeries at locations donated by individuals, businesses and local governments.

PEACEAnimals needs volunteers and donations in order to serve as many animals in as many locations as possible. The charity has 501(c)(3) status under the umbrella of Banderas Bay Charities Inc. Canadian donations can also receive tax-exemptions. How to donate, how to volunteer and clinic location information can be found at PEACEAnimals.
