PV Mourns the Passing of SPCA Founder Janice Chatterton

March 12, 2019

It is with enormous heartbreak that we share with you all that our leader and founder, Janice Chatterton passed abruptly and unexpectedly away the evening of Friday, March 8, after a very brief illness.

Janice's life mission and purpose with her foundation was to make a difference and a change in the animals lives that could not help themselves.

With the help and generosity of friends and volunteers, she built a sanctuary and rescue organization from the ground up for the animals of Puerto Vallarta.

The SPCA-PV will continue to run, operate and rescue as it always has. According to Janice's wishes, Luz Maria Wong will act as interim replacement until a full-time and suitable replacement is found.

We will never ever forget the lifelong work dedicated her entire life to. We look forward to keeping her memory alive and will continue to work tirelessly and with her passion.
