Bring Margi Home

Margi LaPorte has always had a heart for taking in animals that needed a home and love. But as a friend, I've seen her take in the lost hearts of people too, and given them a home. I speak from experience.

Understanding the dire situation in Puerto Rico in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria, the situation in Vieques is compounded by its location. Resources are scarce in PR, and the help needed in Vieques is simply not there. There is little comunication available, food and water are scarce, and there are reports of looting and violence.

Thankfully Margi's family is safe back in the states, but we are asking for financial help for a rescue mission to get her from Vieques. And knowing Margi, you know she won't look one of those animals in the eyes and leave them behind.

There are major roadblocks involved in this endeavor and the clock is ticking. We are grateful for donations made, in hopes of facilitating Margi's speedy return.

FROM JESSI: The plan is to get a chartered plane to Vieques and evacuate all of the dogs and cats in our care AND potentially, many more. Margi will also be evacuated. The situation is dire there- no food, water, gas, or electricity and people are abandoning their animals at our house. Someone also stole our reserves of dog food. It's time to get them out of there. Please share! Let's get as many animals out as possible.
