Rafa's Dog Rescue

As many of you know, my friend Rafa runs a dog rescue in the outskirts of Bogota (Colombia), by himself, with very little help. He currently has 29 resident dogs and 8 "neighbor dogs" that come to eat two meals a day!

Recently, the major dog food brand that sponsored their food stopped donating to individual rescue organizations, and so Rafa is back to having to provide all the food out of his own pocket. Add to this regular grooming, medications, vaccinations, etc. and the upkeep of housing, bedding, and so forth for so many dogs is a huge challenge. 

We are asking again for your help, in this semi-annual fundraiser, to please give what you can, even a little, to allow this great work to continue. Every cent goes to feed one of these great pups, who have a wonderful life thanks to a kind and generous person, and YOU!
