My name is Priya Cynthia Kishna. Many of you know me as the artist of Pupa Vegan and Vegan Artbook, but I am also the founder of Pupa's micro sanctuary in The Netherlands, which is the home of 15 animals saved from abuse and cruelty.
In 2013 I started taking in abandoned and abused animals. When the number of animals rose in 2015, I started a micro sanctuary in my backyard, which I financially sustain myself by drawing vegan comic books, of which 100% of the profit goes to the animals. It's still itty-bitty tiny, but here's the thing:
I WANT TO EXPAND THIS SANCTUARY SO I CAN SAVE MORE ANIMALS.
And the first step to do so is to become a foundation.
I've been paying for the animals' feed, medical treatment and spaying/neutering from my own pocket for 5 years, but because the number of animals has been increasing lately, it's getting harder for me.
My sanctuary is completely non-profit and I work hard every day to provide the animals with everything they need. I am so passionate about this and helping innocent beings means the world to me! I currently can only take in rabbits, rodents, dogs and other small animals, but I want to be able to help farm animals, too. And becoming a foundation is the first step to be able to do so.
I NEED YOUR HELP!
To be able to register Pupa's sanctuary as a foundation, I have to pay notary fees. This is a hard hit on the roof of my (still) small sanctuary. But it is the first step to be allowed to expand it, open a charity bank account and be able to receive donations for the animals.
I don't want to turn down animals who need my help, I am in this 100% for the animals, so that's where I guarantee 100% of the money goes to, even if this crowdfunding will receive more funds than I need for the notatry. I want to expand it, I want to save farm animals in need, too, like goats, chickens, turkeys, sheep, cows and pigs.
I thank everyone for their help and I hope that this campaign will be succesful. Of course I'll keep posting updates on it. I hope you will consider helping Pupa's sanctuary take its first step to become a larger safe haven for animals.
