Friends of Mexpup
Part of Our Pack
MexPup is more than anything else, a community of animal rescuers who came together to make a difference. Whether it's rescuing animals, treating animals, providing discounted services to rescued & adopted animals, raising money or giving of their time, all the businesses listed below are an important part of MexPup's success. Even though these people have never asked for anything in return for their help, we wanted to make sure that we recognized them and encouraged the friends of MexPup to become friends of theirs also.
Animal Care & Veterinarian Supporters
Dr. Francisco Aguilar
Colombia 1198, Col. 5 de Diciembre
Puerto Vallarta, Jal. C.P. 48350
Our local hero Vet on the Mexico side, Paco Aguilar has done so much to help us over the years. He, the other Veterinarians, and staff at Sabuesos have been indespensible and we could not do what we do without their help. Almost all of the veterinarian care MexPups receive in Mexico comes from this great group of people and they offer this help to us at such a discount it can't be considered anything less than charitable. So, when you hear that one of our animals has needed additional surgeries or other medical attention which we're seeking help for, keep in mind that our costs here are substantially lower than they would be in Canada or the US.
If you're ever in need of a fantastic vet when you're in Puerto Vallarta, please go see Paco at Sabuesos. He is a great friend to Puerto Vallarta's homeless pups.

Treated my dogs as if they were their own and it was a great experience. They will forever be my vets now as I now trust them implicitly with all of my animals."
