Helping prevent the future suffering of animals

OUR History

In 2013, several animal advocates launched PEACEAnimals, a Mexican nonprofit (AC), sharing a work agreement with Pets for Life, a Mexican for‑profit (SC).

When Peace Punta de Mita discontinued its free spay/neuter program, “Ayuda a los Animales” (“Help the Animals”), the foundation generously donated all their clinic equipment and supplies to PEACEAnimals.

Two vets from Ayuda a los Animales, Dr. Poli and Dr. Anthony, were hired.  A few years later, our vet team grew with the addition of Dr. Pacheco and vet tech and education director, EMVZ Leslie Caratachea.

PEACEAnimals operates 42-44 clinic weeks annually, visiting thirty plus towns and neighborhoods, primarily in Puerto Vallarta and the surrounding areas.

In 2018, PEACEAnimals sterilized 5,792 cats and dogs free of charge.

Prior to surgery, your cat or dog will be treated  for fleas, ticks, parasites and mange, if present.  Pregnancies are terminated at owner's request. If a pet is too critically ill or injured to survive, euthanasia may also be performed at owner's request.  

community-wide education

PEACEAnimals provides weekly education presentations in neighborhood (colonia) schools where mobile clinics take place.  The central focus is pet care, with an emphasis on spay/neuter and adoption or rescue versus purchase.  Also stressed is care and respect for wildlife and  the environment.

What Drives Us

Our Mission

The mission of PEACEAnimals is to prevent the future suffering of animals.  A mass, free mobile spay/neuter program does the most good for the most animals. Towns and neighborhoods are cleaner, quieter, healthier and safer where there is no overpopulation of pets; and wildlife is at less risk for decimation.

Mexico, a third world developing country, is ranked number one per capita in the world for the overpopulation of pets.  Cats and dogs are very often born to suffer.  They are hit by vehicles, poisoned, starved, diseased, abused and abandoned.   PEACEAnimals visits neighborhoods, towns and disenfranchised ranch and farm areas, primarily in the area of the Bay of Banderas (Puerto Vallarta).

In 2018, PEACEAnimals sterilized 5,792 cats and dogs.
