Dear friends,

Our shelter, the only official refuge in the country caring for hundreds of dogs and cats is facing one of its biggest challenges to date: In 10 days, our animals will starve!

This is the ugly truth; with 500 dogs and 150 cats to feed every month (which requires the amount of $10.000/month), the animals are faced with the risk of starvation if we do not pay our food provider who has been patient for too long!

This crisis is caused by 4 major factors:

- Scarce donations due to the political turmoil in the area and due to the fact that animals are still seen as a secondary issue that can be looked into once there's more stability in the country.
- People forgetting all about the animal they rescue once they feel he/she's safe, and the shelter becoming a dumping ground.
- The big number of animals (amounting to 650) who require medical care, spaying/neutering, vaccination, de-fleaing and food...
- The number of adoption requests decreasing with the rise of new groups who have very low adoption standards.

The situation is critical, and the same animals we have taken a vow to protect and care for might face a horrific fate if we do not come up with $40.000 within the next 10 days.

While this might seem like an impossible mission, it can be achieved in fact if we come together as a community of animal lovers. If each one of us spares a few dollars, our goal can be achieved.

The animals' fate depends on your generosity!

Please DONATE to our fund! Each dollar counts in such a critical situation!

We also accept PAYPAL
