Help Animal Shelter in Venezuela

The animal shelter, Nieves del Valle, is located in Villa de Cura, Aragua, Venezuela. Mrs. Nieves del Valle has been taking care of these animals (dogs and cats) since 2006, using her own house. Unfortunately in Venezuela the situation has surpassed unimaginable limits. There is a humanitarian crisis, people are literally dying of hunger, there are many cases of people seen collecting food from the garbage to eat, many people have decided to leave the country, leaving their pets in the streets, helpless and hungry. But not only those who have emigrated, many families faced with the impossibility of getting enough food and money to pay for their needs, have also chosen to abandon their pets. The situation is so extreme that there have been cases of people killing dogs and cats to eat them.

In this extreme situation, Mrs. Nieves del Valle, has maintained with admirable courage, dedication and altruism, the work of caring for and feeding about 25 dogs and 61 cats, putting her own needs and those of her brother, who also suffers from a heart condition and urgently need a pacemaker.

IT IS IMPOSSIBLE for her to get the necessary resources to keep these beautiful animals. Every donations will be used in order to feed and take care of the animals in the shelters, buying food, cleaning supplies, animal medicines, vet bills, etc.

Those donations will be transfered to my wife's (Jamie) personal bank account in New York and then to Dominican Republic trough a agency called La Nacional and then they will send the money to
the personal Mrs. Nieves bank account in Venezuela. I have to do all this proccess cause due to the strongs restrictions in Venezuela about the currency. There is no direct way to transfer money bank to bank from outside to Venezuela.

If you have any doubt about this campaing you can contact her trhough her personal twitter account @Alberguenieves or visit the animal shelter webpage!

El albergue para animales, Nieves del Valle, está ubicado en Villa de Cura, Aragua, Venezuela. La Sra. Nieves del Valle ha cuidado de estos animales (perros y gatos) desde el 2006, utilizando su propia casa. Lamentablemente en Venezuela la situación ha sobrepasado límites inimaginables. Existe una crisis humanitaria, la gente está literalmente muriendo de hambre, no son pocos los casos de personas vistas recogiendo comida de la basura para comer, muchas personas han decidido irse del pais, abandonando a sus mascotas en las calles, desamparados y hambrientos. Pero no solo los que han emigrado, muchas familias ante la imposibilidad de conseguir alimentos y dinero suficiento para pagar sus necesidades, han optado por abandonar tambien sus mascotas. La situación es tan extrema que se han registrado casos de personas asesinando perros y gatos para comerlos.

En esta situación extrema, la Señora Nieves del Valle, ha mantenido con admirable valentía, dedicación y altruismo, la labor de cuidar y alimentar a unos 25 perros y 61 gatos, anteponiendo sus propias necesidades y las de su hermano, quien además padece de una afección cardíaca y necesita con urgencia un marcapasos.

ES IMPOSIBLE para ella conseguir los recursos necesarios para mantener a estos hermosos animalitos. Una donación tuya puede hacer una tremenda diferencia, por favor ayúdanos a que este Albergue pueda mantenerse, ninguna donación es poco...
