Ever since I was young, my family raised me to love animals. This was mainly fostered by my mom who has rescued/spayed/neutered and fed more than 9 cats in our neighborhood. 
There is a BIG problem in my homeland of Puerto Rico. Many animals (dogs/cats/horses) are being abused and abandoned. We are over populated with stray animals and many more keep getting tossed to the streets and beaches every day like garbage. There are laws that are supposed to protect them, but they are rarely enforced even by the Police themselves. It is a very sad situation. These creatures are left out to die in the streets because of the same people who take them in without actually being able to. 
I have been following some independent rescue groups in various cities in the island. Regular people that have taken on the rescue/rehabilitation/fostering/adoption of these animals without any government help.
My mission is to help several of these non-profit organizations by raising funds to be divided equally. These great people have to resort to everyone else to save these lives. I see the work they do and it motivates me to help them. 
Some of the organizations I want to help are:

Mangas al Codo por los AnimalesLa pirotecnia suele provocar trastornos de pánico en los perros y gatos con características similares a las que se reconocen en los ataques de pánico en humanos. Esto debido a su audición tan aguda. ¿Qué le puede causar estos ruidos a nuestras mascotas? (los ruidos fuertes o explosiones provocadas por la pirotecnia, tormentas, etc.)

Santuario de Animales San Francisco de AsisNo todos los animalitos reaccionan de la misma manera en época de tormentas y algunos hasta entran en estado de pánico, por lo que se hace necesario el consuelo de los dueños. Existen distintas técnicas para llevar a cabo y que sufran lo menos posible.

I have been in contact with them and they are very much legitimate non-profit organizations. Facebook is their main way of gathering followers and funds. Below is a picture of one of the organizations rescues. The before and after of a pet is amazing and they deserve all the help they can receive. 
Please please help me reach my goal. <3Maru
