PEACE Mexico (Protection & Education: Animals, Culture, and the Environment) was officially founded in 2005, but the start date goes back to 2003 when Help the Animals (Ayuda a los Animales) held its first spay and neuter clinic in the Bay of Banderas area (Bahia de Banderas) with one veterinarian and 6 volunteers. In 2004, Molly Fisher, a socially conscious teacher at the American School in Puerto Vallarta, envisioned a community organization in the Punta de Mita area.

In 2005, Community House (Casa Comunidad) was born with the help of a donated space and 23 enthusiastic students. In 2007 and 2008 PEACE Mexico expanded to other towns along the Bay of Banderas.

In 2013, PEACE Mexico closed its doors and became PEACE PUNTA DE MITA, A.C. PEACE Punta de Mita programs are now concentrated in the Punta de Mita-Higuera Blanca area and focus on three categories: Education, Health/Lifestyle, and Community Pride.
