SOS Animales Animal Shelter
Hi, my name is Marlie, and I am one of the co-founders of SOS Animales, an animal rescue and relief organization.
Our small, vibrant community has been hit by hardship after hardship for the last several years and unfortunately many have been left without the means to properly care for themselves or for their animals. Without access to animal care education or adequate veterinary care, the overpopulation of dogs and cats has led to the spread of disease and has created a situation of endless suffering for many animals.
SOS Animales was founded in November 2020 when a small team of animal lovers came together with the goal of alleviating animal suffering within the community. For the past two years, SOS Animales has worked to achieve this goal by educating owners about correct care, hosting mass sterilization clinics to combat the impacts of dog and cat overpopulation, subsidizing vaccine costs for families, and establishing the community's first full-service veterinary clinic.
SOS Animales will be entering 2023 with a new goal: to construct an animal shelter to further help the animals of our community by giving neglected and abandoned animals a safe place to stay while they wait to find their forever home. For the past few years, animals that are rescued from the streets or from situations of neglect have needed to stay in foster homes, as there is nowhere else for them to go. This has severely limited the number of animals that we are able to help. By building a shelter, we will be able to help a greater number of animals and help our community grow towards being a healthier place for animals.
The land for our shelter has kindly been donated to us by partners in our community. Now, we are raising funds for the costs of materials and labor. We have been working with experts in the field for the past year to design a safe space for the animals that minimizes stress, while allowing dogs and cats to recover from past traumas. There is an immediate need for a structure such as this in our community, and so we first hope to reach a modest goal of $50,000 so that we can begin.
Thank you for taking the time to read about our work and your consideration of our cause
