Peru Vehicle Fund
10/25/19 – KARINA VEHICLE UPDATE! This is why need to make sure Karina gets a vehicle! Thanks to your support we have raised close to 6000$ for Karina to get a new car. On the quest for a suitable vehicle, we have learned the reality of purchasing a vehicle in Peru. •We searched all over and have American contacts in Lima, Peru who have vehemently warned us not to get a used vehicle in Peru. It is almost as expensive as a new one and comes with zero warranties and usually results in the buyer being frauded. After researching, it is clear that we have to alter our original goal for her. We need approximately 2500$ more in order to reach the down payment for her. She will then make monthly payments on the remainder.
Over the past few years, we have seen some of the worst health cases of street dogs in locations such as Honduras and Peru. We have also witnessed miraculous recoveries at the hands of our independent rescuers like Melissa and Karina.
We also know that transportation is essential in getting the dire, emergency cases to the hospitals swiftly in order to make sure a dog gets immediate medical treatment. Having a vehicle to transport such cases is the true difference between life and death. So many times Karina has been denied travel from buses and taxis because the dogs are not permitted on board.
Last year we successfully secured a vehicle for Melissa in Honduras with the help of your contributions. The implementation of that vehicle has saved countless lives, from being able to be rescued from the street to making critical treatment appointments and ultimately being able to transport the adoptables to the airport to finally travel to their forever families stateside. Noble, Lady, Isa, Malachi, Biscuit, Kanga, Roo, Perkins and Odie all found unconditional love because they were able to make flight plans and arrive in the USA.
Our request for assistance is to make this available to Karina in Peru so that the dogs that have been rescued and rehabilitated can also find families in the USA. Karina has been denied so often by public transportation, dogs are suffering because they cannot reach the clinic for care. Also, the sanctuary is 8 hours away from the airport so getting dogs to their Freedom Flight is next to impossible without the means of a car. Dogs like Mastro and Pablo are patiently waiting for their chance, but without transport available, their dream may never become reality.
We ask for your consideration and compassion at this time to assist in raising funds so that we can secure a vehicle for Karina so she can continue to be effective in her area and keep making a difference in the lives of the animals in desperate need.
She is called upon daily to rescue dying and forgotten dogs in the streets and the mountains and the unfortunate reality is she just can’t get to them. The kind man she used to use for transport has moved. The taxis either REFUSE her with an animal or charge her over four times the amount.
She is doing the work of a village single handedly, she goes without sleep, and lives only for what she can do for each dog she saves. We must support her, because supporting her is really supporting the voiceless victims lying in the streets!
So we call upon you one last time to help us see this goal met and we promise once it is, it will be a ride we all benefit from, we will all see her ability to reach even more of the defenseless strays of Peru.
