Saving Cali


**** I have exceeded my goal by a number I never imagined. This has gone from wanting to send a few hundred dollars to this rescue to now finding the means to have Cali return to the US with my family who will travel there for vacation in 2 weeks. *** you guys are making  Cali's journey possible !!! ***Cali has cleared all exams for surgery. His surgery is tomorrow. They don't know exactly how much of his leg will end up needing to be removed.  He will stay what we hope will only be 2 weeks in the vet for recovery. And in that time I will be getting all paperwork ready for his travels back on January 8th!  The exact estimate we won't have until after his surgery is performed. Thank you all so much!!  Cali is getting a second chance at life because of all you guys XO

As you all are aware animal abuse is a global issue. We hear cases all over the US and over seas daily! The posts are graphic and heartbreaking. They often bring us to tears.

We see rescues and good samaritans spring into action but it's never enough. One dog makes it our of a shelter while another 20+ await to be entered into the system. Dogs die daily at the hands of complete monsters. The pictures and methods of abuse are unbearable to read about and to see, imagine how it is for these dogs experiencing it first hand !

So here I am, asking you kind compassionate souls for help yet again! Last time I used this gofundme I was able to save a dog that was abandoned and homeless for 3 weeks. Rescues turned him away and I with the help of my IG community placed him into a foster home. I don't work with a rescue. I save one dog at a time and do my best to help as many as possible. My IG is valelo00 and Facebook Valeria Lotero.

This dog CALI had his leg chopped off in Cartagena Colombia. I wish nothing but the worst for the monsters who did this. He is receiving vet care and they are in dire need of donations. The stray situation in Colombia is outrages. I'm in contact with the rescue helping this baby boy. They have an outstanding vet bill but that's not stopping them from helping those in dire need.

Please I'm asking you all anything from $1 will help!!! whatever I can raise will help them tremendously. PLEEASE AGAIN IF YOU CAN JUST SPARE $1 EACH.

The rescue who took in Cali is Angelesconpatas_fundacion. THEH are based in Cartagena Colombia and Shirley is the director. The vet information is Unidad Medica Veterinaria de Los Angeles tel: [phone redacted] and I will be making the deposit into their acct. Once that is deposited I will post the receipt on here.

THANK YOU ALL!
