First restaurant for stray dogs

In December 2017 Sladjana and Nenad, 2 tourists who had just vacationed in Boca Chica, Dominican Republic contacted our association Aid and Support for the Creole Dogs / http://www.kreolischerhund.de/Intro.en.php and complained about the abuse against beach dogs by hotel security with electro shockers, sticks and stones to keep the dogs away from the hotel. They also commented on tripadvisor https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g967189-d152050-r547224630-BelleVue_Dominican_Bay-Boca_Chica_Santo_Domingo_Province_Dominican_Republic.html#CHECK_RATES_CONT 
Now in February our vets will go there and spay and neuter the animals - but this is not enough! Also spayed and neutered they will be hungry and seek food and animal-friendly tourists not knowing what to do will feed them, encouraging them to return to the place where they will be abused and in the end - poisoned! Last mass poisoning reported at this beach was in 2014. Now we have for the first time the chance to create a regular feeding station - our first dog restaurant! - and we have helpers to maintain the station daily. But they have counted 117 dogs in the area,threatened by poisoning if nothing happens, and 62 cats. To spay and neuter them is not the problem - our vets are good! - but dog food is expensive in the Dominican Republic. To provide only 1 meal a day, we need 500 $ monthly, without - the abuse will continue and the next poisoning will happen regardless if the animals are spayed or not. Too great is the fear that they might disturb the tourists. But if we could create and maintain a regular feeding station and condition not only the animals but also the animal-loving tourists to it, then we could also convince hotels and restaurants that there are better, humane ways to deal with a stray animal problem and that most of their guests will surely appreciate that. Please help us to make this dream come true!
