There are many ways to help save animals in need here at home and everywhere...
Adopt don't shop! Adopting a Colombian criollito is not for everyone, so please consider adopting from a Canadian rescue or your local humane society before going to a breeder or a pet store. There are many wonderful local pups searching for their happy endings too.
Donate! In addition to monetary aid for food, shelter and medical supplies, we are also in need of plastic crates approved for airline travel, waterproof doggie coats (it gets cool and wet in the Andes Mountains around Bogota!), and leashes, harnesses and collars -- especially for small to medium-sized dogs. We will pick up any donated items in southern Ontario or the Vancouver area.
Volunteer! If you are travelling to Colombia and back, and are able to escort a dog to Toronto or Vancouver, please contact us. The rescue covers all costs, and provides the necessary paperwork for customs to indicate that you are volunteering for a registered NFP. Please contact us if you'd like to know more about how you can help. It costs nothing other than some extra time on your part at the end of your trip. You can change the life of a dog forever -- not to mention the lives of their new Canadian family members.
Foster! If you are in south-central Ontario, and are willing to foster one of our pups, please contact us. All costs are covered by the rescue.
