Please Help the SPA Save Cats and Dogs

Please Help the SPA Save Cats and Dogs

By Jayn Corral and Megan Gabel

The Sociedad Protectora de Animales de San Miguel de Allende, A.C. (SPA) is the only no-kill shelter for cats and dogs in San Miguel. We house an average of 100 unwanted and abandoned dogs and cats. Since 1980, we have provided food, shelter, and care for our resident animals with the goal of finding them permanent, loving homes. Our on-site clinic provides veterinary services for our animals and those belonging to the public. Without donations from our supporters, the SPA, a non-profit organization, could not exist. Now through the end of the year, all new donations to the SPA up to a total of US$2,500 will be matched!

Your donation will help us save animals like Reeses and Seattle. Discovered in the campo, Reeses was much too young to be a mother, yet she had four hungry offspring. She was the best mom, dutifully feeding, protecting, and cleaning her “Pieces,” as her babies were called. Just as she was ready to be finished with motherhood, we took in four two-day old orphans. Being the only nursing mother, Reeses became their only hope and ours. That next morning, we were thrilled to discover that Reeses had risen to the occasion and her “New Pieces” were thriving. When her motherly duties were finally completed, Reeses was sterilized and joined the other young cats until a wonderful family adopted her. 

In February, a good Samaritan on her way to catch a flight to Seattle alerted us that a dog was at the bus station and needed help. We found him hiding under a bank of chairs, barely able to move. He had a bad wound on his rear leg that required multiple surgeries and took several weeks to heal. Throughout it all, Seattle remained a happy boy, though a bit frustrated that he was unable to play and make new friends. Now almost three years old, he is very sweet, eager to please, and always excited to go for a walk.
