IMPORTANT UPDATE ABOUT THE SAVE THE MACAU GREYHOUNDS FUNDRAISER (launched on 19thApril 2018)

The time of the Canidrome is now over.  In July it closed forever and it was a great day for those who love greyhounds and all animals, and who want the world to be a better and more civilised place. 

Some of the dogs that had been rescued by the Canidrome before its closure have been picked up by Anima and are now safe at the Anima refuge, which is wholly responsible for their care and all of their costs. All the other dogs, who are currently still housed at the Canidrome  premises,  are now under the direct supervision of Anima. The building’s running costs are being paid for by its previous management, and the veterinary and sterilisation costs of the dogs at the Canidrome are being met by the Macau health authorities.
A great rehoming plan is currently being finalised, aiming to give all the dogs a new life in countries where animal rights are respected. Everything is being prepared so that this great international rehoming project  - possibly the largest and most complex ever attempted - can be realised as soon as possible. A network of refuges and organisations  in countries around the world is preparing to welcome the dogs, take care of them and find homes for them.

Therefore we ask all those who love greyhounds and other animals and who believe in justice and compassion to make a donation, to help Anima manage all the stages of the process of transporting the dogs to the countries where they will find their forever homes, including  relative expenses prior to adoption in the destination countries.

We cannot yet specify the exact sum required, but we know that the costs are likely to be very high.

All donations will be managed directly by Anima Macau exclusively for the Macau greyhounds. 

All funds in excess of requirements will be allocated to refuges and organisations  with charitable status working to rescue greyhounds from the racing industry, and from the dog meat trade in China.

Thank you for your help!

President of Pet Levrieri Onlus

NB - We chose the Gofundme platform for this Appeal in order to guarantee maximum transparency in the process of fundraising, as everyone can see in real time how much has been raised so far. The total amount raised so far can be viewed on the Gofundme appeal page.  A percentage of about 8% will need to be deducted from this as per the requirement of the Gofundme platform. All the documentation related to the transfers will be published.

Pet Levrieri Onlus would also like to make it very clear that any expenses required for the Macau greyhounds that will be reserved for adoption in Italy will be entirely covered by its own funds or by donations specifically raised for that purpose, and NOT from the donations collected via the Gofundme appeal. All the money that has been raised by direct donations to Pet Levrieri for the Macau greyhounds and which is not used in Italy will be donated to Anima Macau to support the international campaign.

In conclusion, please note that the donations for the Macau greyhounds collected by Pet Levrieri Onlus via the Gofundme appeal will be managed through a current account for the exclusive use of the Save the Macau Greyhounds campaign and NOT though our organisation's general account. This is in order to guarantee total transparency, as is our custom.

 

TRADUZIONE IN ITALIANO 

IMPORTANTE AGGIORNAMENTO SULLA RACCOLTA FONDI "HELP THE MACAU GREYHOUNDS"  (creata il 19 aprile 2018) 

Il tempo del Canidrome è finito, a luglio ha chiuso per sempre, ed è un grande giorno per tutti quelli che amano i greyhound, gli animali e che desiderano un mondo più civile.

Alcuni cani che erano stati recuperati dal Canidrome prima della chiusura si trovano direttamente presso Anima, che ne è responsabile in tutto e per tutto, tutti gli altri cani del Canidrome si trovano ancora nella struttura sotto la direzione di Anima. Le spese di gestione della struttura sono pagate dalla società che controllava il Canidrome, le spese veterinarie e la sterilizzazione dei cani nel Canidrome dalle autorità sanitarie di Macao.

Si sta approntando un grande piano di adozione per dare una nuova vita a tutti i cani in paesi in cui i diritti degli animali sono rispettati. Si stanno creando le condizioni perché un grande progetto di adozione internazionale, forse il più grande e complesso mai tentato, possa essere realizzato appena possibile: una rete di rifugi e associazioni in molti paesi si sta preparando ad accogliere i cani, a gestirli e a darli in adozione 

Per questo chiediamo a tutti gli amanti degli animali e dei greyhound e a tutti quelli che hanno a cuore giustizia e compassione di donare per permettere di aiutare Anima e gestire tutte le fasi delle operazioni di trasporto verso i paesi in cui troveranno la loro casa per sempre, nonché la gestione dei cani nei paesi di destinazione in vista dell’adozione. Non possiamo ancora quantificare la cifra necessaria ma potrebbe essere molto elevata.

Le donazioni saranno gestite direttamente da Anima Macau esclusivamente per i greyhound di Macao.

I fondi che dovessero eventualmente avanzare saranno destinati ad associazioni ed enti che abbiano lo statuto di charity e che lavorano per salvare i greyhound dall'industria delle corse e in Cina dal mercato della carne.

Grazie per aiuto che darete!

NB - Abbiamo scelto la piattaforma Gofundme per questo appello al fine di garantire la massima trasparenza nel processo di raccolta fondi, in quanto tutti possono vedere in tempo reale quanto è stato raccolto finora.  L'importo totale raccolto finora può essere visualizzato sulla pagina dell'appello di Gofundme. Una percentuale di circa l'8% dovrà essere dedotta da questo come da requisito della piattaforma Gofundme (secondo le tariffe del servizio). Tutta la documentazione relativa ai trasferimenti sarà pubblicata.

Qualsiasi spesa richiesta per i levrieri di Macao che saranno riservati per l'adozione in Italia sarà interamente coperta dai fondi propri o dalle donazioni specificamente devolute a tale scopo nelle iniziative fatte in Italia, e NON dalle donazioni raccolte tramite l'appello Gofundme. Tutto il denaro che verrà raccolto con donazioni dirette a Pet Levrieri per i levrieri di Macao, che dovesse avanzare,  verrà donato ad Anima Macao per sostenere la campagna internazionale.

Infine, si ricorda che le donazioni per i levrieri Macao raccolte da Pet Levrieri Onlus tramite l'appello Gofundme sono gestite attraverso un conto corrente per l'uso esclusivo della campagna Save the Macau Greyhounds e NON attraverso il conto generale della nostra ONLUS. Questo è al fine di garantire la totale trasparenza, come è nostra abitudine.

Dear Friends,

Now that the dogs are safe it is imperative to raise sufficient funds to help pay for their veterinary care and to arrange in due course for their transports to their new homes via the international safety net of refuges who have adhered to our campaign.

All funds will be managed by Pet levrieri through a dedicated account and given to Anima Macau for the exclusive use of the Macau greyhounds.

Please donate generously and share widely!

Thank you.

IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING THE SAVE THE MACAU GREYHOUNDS FUNDRAISER APPEAL

As is customary for our association Pet Levrieri Onlus, which is a Registered Charity and thus has full accountability, please note the following in relation to the funds being collected for the campaign #SavetheMacauGreyhounds via the Gofundme fundraiser platform.

The use for which these funds are being gathered is already explicitly stated as follows in the text of the appeal, where it is also clearly explained how any unused funds would be used, in the very unlikely event that they were no longer required for their original purpose:

'The donations will be handled directly by Anima Macau, exclusively for the Macau greyhounds.

If, on the other hand, the Canidrome's greed prevails and the dogs cannot be saved, all funds collected will be allocated for projects and associations aimed at rescuing greyhounds from the racing industry and from Chinese meat markets.'

All the money gathered via the Gofundme platform will therefore be allocated to Anima Macau for the expenses related to healthcare, the preparation of the veterinary and customs documentation required for travel, and transports, including related expenses incurred by the refuges in the destination countries.

The total amount raised so far can be viewed on the Gofundme appeal page; a percentage of about 10% will need to be deducted from this as per the requirement of the Gofundme platform. All the documentation related to the transfers will be published.

Pet Levrieri Onlus would also like to make it very clear that any expenses required for the Macau greyhounds that will be reserved for adoption in Italy will be entirely covered by its own funds or by donations specifically raised for that purpose, and NOT from the donations collected via the Gofundme appeal. All the money that has been raised by direct donations to Pet Levrieri for the Macau greyhounds and which is not used in Italy will be donated to Anima Macau to support the international campaign.

In conclusion, please note that the donations for the Macau greyhounds collected by Pet Levrieri Onlus via the Gofundme appeal will be managed through a current account for the exclusive use of the Save the Macau Greyhounds campaign and NOT though our organisation's general account. This is in order to guarantee total transparency, as is our custom.
