Next to las Ramblas, a popular strolling street for mostly tourists and lined with flower stalls, is the famous Boquería market.

An hour´s drive northeast of Barcelona and high up above the valley floor is Montserrat ("serrated mountain"), which is said to have inspired some of Gaudí´s architecture. The Montserrat monastery, in existence in some kind of form since the 9th century, is Catalonia´s most important religious retreat and an important part of the cultural and spiritual life of Catalonia. During the Spanish Civil War, twenty-two of the monks of the Benedictine Abbey of Montserrat were murdered by Republican forces. During the Franco era, Santa María de Monserrat was a sanctuary for scholars, students, politicians and artists hiding from Franco´s forces.

THE CLINIC IN JARRETADERAS WAS MADE POSSIBLE BY A GENEROUS GRANT FROM THE RICHARD R. REED FOUNDATION.
The location in colonia Aralias in the bodega of Sofi Gonzalez is one PEACEAnimals has been able to visit several times. This is always a very busy clinic and there was a long line of pet owners with their cats and dogs waiting when I arrived on Thursday morning. Not wanting to turn anyone away, Dr. Poli accepted 51 animals for surgery that day. People not only brought in their pets, but also rescued dogs and puppies they hope to find home for, and feral cats they had trapped that will be released where found. One well-dressed young couple brought in two sweet three-month old brown and white puppies - a brother and a sister - that they had found discarded in Tepic. As they are trying to find homes for the puppies, they were simply registered as "Tepic One" and "Tepic Two." The couple had been caring enough to have had the brother and sister vaccinated against parvo and distemper before having them sterilized.

Due to non-sterilization and a lack of education, there are thousands of homeless cats and dogs living on the streets in Puerto Vallarta. There are many hundreds waiting to be adopted in foster homes, sanctuaries and the Centro de Acopio. If you can foster an animal, have found a cat or dog, or would like to adopt a cat or dog, Please check our website on the "resource" tab for names and contacts of refuges, vets, etc.
