We'd like to introduce ourselves; we are Michelle Carranza and Andrea Trivino, we live in Montreal, Canada and became volunteers of the Pinky Foundation once we learnt about its current situation. We kindly ask you from the bottom of our hearts to help us support Pinky get the necessary funds to buy the perfect place for these rescue animals. PLEASE SHARE THIS CAMPAIGN WITH THE ANIMAL LOVERS YOU KNOW.
It all starts with a dream and a vision...
The money we are kindly asking for will be used for the following:
- To Invest in the purchase of an easily accessible land capable of housing the 190 animals that currently live in the shelter (There's a piece of land available for 80 million Colombian pesos which is around $30,000 CAD that is perfect for the shelter, it has an area of 2000 square meters!)
- The construction of closed cubicles or kennels that will be used as areas to house dogs and cats, especially for those that are very weak (babies, elderly, sick, etc.)
- Travelling and moving expenses from the present animal refuge to the new one
- Judicial paperwork
Currently, the Pinky Foundation is located in the city of Malambo in the department of Atlántico, in the north of Colombia in an area of approximately 2,500 square meters. With the help of donations and activities carried out by the animal refuge and its collaborators, 23 cubicles and kennels for dogs and cats have been built. Many of the activities that Pinky does to raise money have been heavily impacted due to the current situation the world is facing.
The founder and heart of the Pinky Foundation is Rosalba Carrillo, best known as Pinky. She is an animal rescuer, animal activist and a protector of life. For 12 years, this amazing woman has dedicated her life to rescue and to help animals in need of immediate assistance such as serious injuries, infections, malnourishment, amputated limbs and victims of physical abuse.
We would like to tell you in advance that we are deeply grateful for you taking the time to read this story, may Pinky's courage and kind heart, inspire us. This being said, on behalf of the the Pinky Foundation, and all animals under its care… THANK YOU SO SO VERY MUCH!!!
