News Flash: All donations to the SPA’s Pet Food Money Bank through June 30, 2021, up to a total of US$2,000 will be matched by anonymous donors! The goal of this year’s Pet Food Money Bank fundraiser is 250,000 pesos (about US$13,500), 100 percent of which will be applied to our annual cost of feeding our family-pets-to-be. Please help us with this basic expense—the cost of food—by making a monetary deposit to our Pet Food Money Bank today!
The SPA is the only no-kill shelter for cats and dogs in San Miguel de Allende. We take care of an average of 100 unwanted and abandoned dogs and cats like Isabela, Gypsy, and Willow. Since 1980, we have provided them with food, shelter, and care with the goal of finding them permanent, loving homes. Because animals do not adjust well to changes in diet and we lack sufficient storage space, we need to cover the cost of feeding them the food they are accustomed to eating rather than seek donations of food. We rely solely on financial donations to survive and receive no government support. We economize but need help from our supporters.
No mask is required to donate online (via PayPal) at www.spasanmiguel.org (“Donate” button, top of each page) or on our Facebook page www.facebook.com/spasanmiguel (“Shop Now” button, upper right, just below the banner). You may also donate by Mexican or U.S. check written to “Sociedad Protectora de Animales de San Miguel de Allende, A.C.” (use full name) or by U.S. check to “San Miguel Community Foundation” (for a U.S. tax receipt) (mark for SPA). Checks may be dropped off at the SPA, Los Pinos 7, 415 152 6124, or at any La Conexion location (mark envelope “SPA, PMB 18”). Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions and also check out www.spasanmiguel.org/pet-food-money-bank for more details.
Please don’t delay; deposit funds today so we can take full advantage of this generous matching offer! We need and appreciate your help. Thank you!
