Friends of Puerto Vallarta Animals will be hosting the third annual Paws for the Cause on Wednesday, March 2, from 6 to 10 pm, at the recently opened Food Truck Park. The event promises an evening of food, fun, music and prizes all for the benefit of local shelter animals. Friends of Puerto Vallarta Animals is a support group for Centro de Acopio Animal, otherwise known as the City Pound. The volunteers of this group contribute in various ways, including walking, feeding, and bathing the dogs. Others work in the cattery and clean litter boxes. The organization also helps out with grounds upkeep at times. Their most important goal is socialization of the animals with an aim to make them adoptable.

Centro de Acopio Animal is a government run animal shelter, and the first no-kill shelter in Mexico. The city provides the facility and staff, but has little or no funds for food and medicines. That is where Friends of Puerto Vallarta Animals steps in, taking care of the medical bills that accrue due to veterinarian care for critical cases. There are also programs for sending animals to Canada and the U.S.

The Food Truck Park is located at Francisco Medina 2450 (between Puerto de Luna and the carnival). Tickets are 350 pesos and are available at Cassandra Shaw Jewelry, Marsol Hotel Friday Market (9:30 am to 1 pm Fridays), Adriana Riestra Design Interiors (322) 209-2159 or online at www.friendsofpvanimals.com. Tickets will also be available at the entrance to the event.

“We have a close relationship with Vallarta Lifestyles. Since it beginnings, it has been the most important media for the touristic promotion of our destination. Its content has always been excellent, due to the quality of its articles and spectacular photos. For the type of readers that it reaches, this the ideal publication to advertise our listings.”

“We have been clients of Vallarta Lifestyles since 1999, the year in which we arrived to this destination. Back then, it was the only publication where you could really do local marketing. These days, in spite of the arrival of new technologies, we keep advertising, because it is a really important complement for our marketing strategy.”

“Among other things, Vallarta Lifestyles stands out for its strong presence throughout our destination, from five stars hotels to brand new condominiums, where they finally find the type of clients that we look for. For all of us is very important to be in print media to strengthen our advertising strategy and this magazine is essential to achieve it.”
