Build a Roof for 150 Animals in Cartagena Colombia

by Fundacion Rescate para Animales Desamparados (FRAD)


This project will give 150 rescued dogs, cats, and donkeys a roof to protect them from extreme weather conditions (sun/rain) in the city of Cartagena, northern Coast of Colombia.

Cartagena's temperature averages 95F/32C all year long. In recent years the region has also faced the harshest rainy seasons in its history. Every time it rains, our shelter gets flooded and muddy. Our animals live in large uncovered patios and with the rains, most of them get wet and sick, especially with strong colds, bronchitis and pneumonia, diseases that can be mortal. As the next rainy season is around the corner, we want these 150 animals to be safe by putting a roof over their head!


The project will allow us to buy individual houses for most of our rescued animals, as well as to build a pre-fabricated roof for the larger dogs and donkeys who live in our shelter. We also expect to purchase blankets, towels; 3 large awnings, as well as wood and tile to build roofs and walls to protect them from the heavy rains and from the sun during the dry season.

Long-Term Impact

With your donations our 150 rescued animals will feel safe and loved during the time they stay with us by having a roof or large awnings to protect them from rain and sun until we find them responsible homes for life. Please help us to continue saving them!
