Clinic Locations & Sponsorships

PEACEAnimals is headquartered in Puerto Vallarta. Its free, mobile spay/neuter clinics travel  primarily to different areas of the Bay of Banderas.  At least two weeks of the month, the clinic operates within the city limits of Puerto Vallarta.   When clinics take place outside city limits, local governments, individuals or animal activist groups are asked to pay the extra costs of gasoline and driving time.and works with communities throughout the area of the Bay of Banderas and beyond. 

 

Grants have been generously awarded by Fondation Brigitte Bardot; Edith Goode & Alice Morgan Wright Trust (US Humane Society); Humane Society International; Marchig Animal Welfare TrustRichard R Reed Foundation; Summerlee Foundation; WWW Foundation and other granting organizations.

In sponsoring a clinic in your community, please keep in mind:

  • Finding a location with easy accessibility and parking, available bathrooms, water and electricity, and a secure area for the storage of the clinic trailer and equipment.
  • Identify one person as Community Coordinator.  We will need the Person's Name, Email, Phone Numbers.
  • Request lunch for the clinic staff and overnight accommodations and meals if clinic is more than two hours driving distance from Puerto Vallarta.
  • The cost of a 3.5 day clinic (Wed, Thurs, Fri from 9 AM-2 PM; Sat from 9 AM-Noon) is $1,800 USD or the equivalent in MXN for staff salaries and medicine.  
  • An average of 120 cats and dogs per clinic week are spay/neutered, and otherwise treated for ticks, parasites and mange, if present.  Pregnancies are terminated on request, as is euthanasia.  If the pet is too critically ill or injured to survive.  These services are gratis.   The number of animals treated depends on the population of cats and dogs, responsible owners to bring in their pets and on and volunteers to assist the vet team.  
  • Cats and dogs must be a minimum of two months of age.  They cannot be given food or water after midnight before the morning of the spay/neuter.
  • The mobile clinics are free to the animal owners.  Donations are welcome.
  • We ask that the Community Coordinator provide volunteers to assist with registration, monitoring of pets post-surgery and clean-up.
