Visitor Tours to the SPCA Puerto Vallarta Shelter Are Back

April 7, 2021

Are you ready to get involved?
We have been successfully taking all COVID-19 precautions in order to protect our staff at the shelter, and feel we are now ready to start our visitor tours again as it is such a crucial part of the socialization and rehabilitation process for our dogs.
Pack your bag for an amazing time at the SPCA Sanctuary!

Our dogs and cats are awaiting “forever homes” and your help is needed to jump start their socialization. The majority of the SPCA animals either come from extremely abusive situations or they have been abandoned. During your visit, you can interact with the animals and play with them. Your love and attention can make up for that sad history.
We encourage you to bring your camera. Take as many photos as you like, and share them with us and your social media community.

Your photos and videos can help these dogs and cats find their forever homes with people who will treat them with the love and care they deserve.


•  Tours are on Wednesday, 1.5 hours total at the Sanctuary.
•  We will only sign up very small groups of up to 4 guests, or visitors of the same family/group.
•  We provide transportation with a fee of $25 USD for the group.
•  Pick up and back at Costco parking lot.
•  Bring your own water.
•  Do not bring food or treats for the dogs as they are all on a special diet.
•  Everyone needs to wear masks and use disinfectant.
