Another Successful Spay/Neuter Clinic!

     On July 30th 4 Patas de Puro Amor, a local animal welfare group run entirely by Costa Ricans, conducted a spay/neuter clinic in San Ramon paid for with donations to Animal Welfare through Global Giving.  The barrio where the clinic was held is extremely poor - some of the people's homes are made from cardboard - and the residents were very appreciative. Forty dogs and cats were spayed or neutered at the amazing price of $14 each, and we would like to go back to the same barrio for another clinic as more donations are raised.  

      Heartfelt thanks to our donors for making what we do possible.  This clinic would not have been held without your generous contributions.

We've Rescued 22 Puppies in Three Days

Found in a box in a coffee field.

The past three days have been very hard on our resources, with TWENTY-TWO puppies coming into rescue. Six were found in a box in a coffee field, soaking wet. Nine were orphaned when their mother was poisoned. Three were found in the trash (one did not survive). Four were found on the street with their starving mother. We need to provide formula, puppy food, and veterinary care in the upcoming weeks.  This is all done in foster homes by people donating their time and love. Please help us with a contribution if you possibly can...each and every donation makes a difference in a life.

Thanks to YOU we've had a Busy Spring!

Save a Life.  Adopt a Rescue!
Save a Life. Adopt a Rescue!

      Muchísimas gracias for your generous donations to the street dogs of San Ramon, Costa Rica.  Our local rescue groups depend on your contributions for the work they do, because the Costa Rican government has no shelters for the estimated one million stray dogs. 

     Spaying and neutering is the primary focus of our work, and in the four months of January through April we spayed or neutered 131 dogs (and 8 cats)!  We also provided emergency surgeries, and had some heartwarming adoptions.

     THANK YOU again for helping us help the street dogs!!!  It would not happen without you, and we appreciate your continued support.
