This project seeks to acquire a permanent home to 158 animals that have been rescued from abuse and neglect their owners on the streets, with the possibility of giving them better conditions and emotional balance, stability and enough space to allow rehabilitation and future adoption.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
In Cartagena and currently in Turbaco, our organization has taken place in homes acquired by temporary lease contracts, if we have our own home as a shelter we can better respond to cases of animal abuse and neglect presented. Daily received between 4 and 5 reports making it difficult to accept some of these reports, avoiding overcrowding and choosing only those who cant defend themselves and are seriously ill wounded.
How will this project solve this problem?
Monthly basic income received through donations and inquiries of our small veterinary clinic resources are 90% for the payment of a farm house whose contract is temporary for one year, utility payments and permanent workers, only the remaining 10% is directed to the handling of animals. A permanent home reduces costs by allocating revenue to create more education campaigns, animal rescue wounded improving their quality of life, promoting adoption and sterilization
Potential Long Term Impact
This project wants to provide the animals that have been rescued and will be a safe place where we can continue the mission and investment for the welfare of animals.In current is difficult to get houses for rent, in recent years the Foundation has had to move from one place to another. Each year the investment is lost suitability of each site, separate kennels of dogs and cats, animals become disoriented, suffering stress and travel costs by moving 158 animals are high
