Caroline, Isabel and Neyla are independent animal protectionists, struggling to recover a former animal shelter and keep feeding and caring for sick and stray dogs & cats in La Pradera, San Joaquín (Venezuela). Please help us give them a second chance!

Hello!

My name is Caroline Carlin and am presently taking care of a former animal shelter in our neighbourhood (La Pradera, San Joaquín in Venezuela) with Isabel and Neyla. We are independent protectionists, keeping track of and rescuing sick and stray dogs & cats, giving them food and health care, including their proper spay/neutering, and finding them a new loving home. 

Carrying water and eager to do some cleaning ...

AFTER A WHOLE YEAR OF HARD WORK, OUR POCKETS ARE RUNNING DRY ...

We urgently need Godparents for each one of our 14 rescued dogs (Fira was adopted and Odina came in so we're back to 14... ) and 12 (now 10 - see updates!) cats. 

Also, we need to build and improve the cat's area as 10 of the rescued cats are awaiting, living in an overcrowded apartment as temporary home. We need help to repair and build a fence around the terrain so dogs cannot escape to the streets, finish building and fencing the cats' area to protect them from feral dogs, buy a water tank (presently there is no running water) and do the installation, plus electricity and other construction details.

We also need help with the pet food, medicines and cleaning products, as well as covering the costs of spay/neutering of the new animals that come into the neighbourhood.

EVERY LITTLE BIT COUNTS! THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR GENEROUS HELP IN THE NAME OF ALL OUR LITTLE ONES!

There is presently a mostly stable population of above 50 stray dogs, and the stray cat population averages double this amount; some are feral, others have become "community" animals (still living in the streets but randomly taken care of and fed by a few dedicated neighbors) and every week or so we see about half a dozen newcomers, mostly sick, injured and abandoned dogs, and newborn kittens taken off their moms.

Before the works ...

Last year, we were given the opportunity to recover a community area and structure which was intended to function as an animal shelter 6 years ago but the project had been abandoned before really starting. We have been working on it mostly out of our pockets and thanks also to the generosity of other fellow protectionists and donors, making it possible to help more animals (presently we are taking full permanent care of 14 dogs and 12 cats (now 10), plus random emergencies and spay/neutering campaigns). However as to the shelter itself the costs are way above what we are able to afford.

SHARING IS CARING! AND  EVERY LITTLE BIT COUNTS!

THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR GENEROUS HELP IN THE NAME OF ALL OUR LITTLE ONES!
