I am part of an east end Private Refugee Sponsorship group welcoming a young Iranian couple from Turkey to Toronto next week.  I have befriended this couple through Facebook and learned they have a beloved little dog, Lexi, who they are devastated to leave behind.  While she is safe in the care of friends for the time being, they are desperate to send for her as soon as they can. They are very worried that as newcomers they will not be able to come up with the funds to do so for a long time. This is heartbreaking for them when combined with all the other transitions and losses they are experiencing as refugees.  

I am hoping my community of pet-loving friends will contribute funds to help bring Lexi to Canada as soon as possible.  I have found an organization willing to help, but as they are also a not-for-profit, they need their expenses covered. They think it will cost $2000 to bring Lexi door-to-door, which includes transportation, fostering, and a pet passport.  Their time is entirely voluntary and our group is grateful for their generosity.

Would you be willing to help this couple realize their dream of having Lexi here with them?  Please share this with your pet-loving friends.  Together we can show this young couple and their little dog a wonderful welcome to Canada!
