We're a team of dedicated volunteers who put all of our time and energy towards helping dogs in need. We collaborate with 16 foreign animal shelters and animal welfare associations to rescue dogs from Perreras (kill shelters) and we get to know a dog's new family before we introduce them to their new home.
It's unfortunately very common for foreign shelters to be overcrowded or underfunded. New animals often cannot be taken in or treated by a vet. To help these shelters, we find loving foster families or kennels for our furry friends, bear the cost of surgery, house sick dogs in animal sanctuaries, and hire professional trainers as needed.
2019 was a year of many sick dogs, mainly high but important surgical costs have burned our funds. In order for us to be able to help directly in acute emergencies and not have to make the difficult decision for which distressed dog the valuable donations should be used, we would like to build a small financial buffer.
We'd love your help to provide a bright future for many more of our furry friends.
