After one visit to Puerto Vallarta, Chris fell in love. From the historic San Sebastián del Oeste, a “pueblo mágico” in the heart of Jalisco’s mountains, to the beautiful beaches of Banderas Bay, he was enchanted by the gracious hospitality of the residents and the magnificent architecture here. Chris sold his company and relocated here permanently.

Early one morning, while at the beach with other pet lovers, Chris rescued one of Puerto Vallarta’s homeless street dogs. Chris decided to formalize his passion for animals and created the Banderas Bay Beach Pet Rescue to help save the lives of homeless, abused and neglected animals in Vallarta and at the same time provide education to the public to become better pet Guardians.
