The tropical Indian Ocean island of Mauritius is a paradise for tourists but a nightmare for street animals. As you read these words, 67 dogs and 100 cats face eviction from the only home they have ever known, followed by death as the authorities ‘exterminate’ them as pests. We must help!
We have just two short months to save the dogs and cats by moving them to a new home!
There are estimated 350,000 dogs, on the tiny island and animal welfare is nowhere on the agenda – dogs and cats are left to fend for themselves.
To make it worse, most of the luxury hotels on the island view the dogs and cats as a nuisance and complain to the authorities about them. The Mauritian authorities care about money-bringing tourists – and care nothing for dogs and cats, so they periodically round up the animals and kill them.
Sameer ‘Sam’ Golam is a good-hearted man who runs the Second Chance Animal Rescue (SCAR). He and his small team of volunteers work tirelessly to help the dogs and cats.
Because there is no suitable animal shelter on the island, Sam has had no choice but to keep ALL the animals he rescues at his home. He currently cares for 167 animals and routinely feeds and treats hundreds more around the island.
Time is of the essence. Only two months remain before the unthinkable happens! We must act IMMEDIATELY.
All these animals were rescued from atrocious situations – they have nowhere to go. Back on the street, their lives would be at risk every minute. Moreover, there is ample evidence that, if they are caught, the way they are killed is barbaric – they are beaten or stabbed to death.
Sam is doing his absolute best to save the animals. He has secured a piece of land and secured planning permission to build a shelter, but he does not have the funds to move the animals or to build the shelter. We have promised to help – we must, because if we cannot raise the funds needed in time and move the animals somewhere safe, the unthinkable will happen: the municipality will step in and kill all the animals. We cannot, we will not, let this happen. Your donation can help prevent this from happening.
The lives of 167 helpless cats and dogs hang in the balance. The clock is ticking FAST.
The faster we can raise the funds, the more prepared SCAR can be for the MOMENT of the eviction.
