Project ‘Change One Life ‘ mission is to help homeless and abandoned animals and to raise awareness of their suffering. It started a few years ago by providing food and care to homeless animals while in the streets. Later on it moved onto rescuing and fostering and now we want to take it a step further. The time has come for Project ‘Change One Life’ to grow bigger and make a greater difference.
The expansion and consolidation of this project has two main objectives:
1) Optimize the rescue work and foster care provided to stray/abandoned animals. Provide sick/injured rescues with appropriate vet care until full recovery. Spay and neuter unaltered healthy rescues. In case of rescues suffering a terminal disease in advanced stage, help them die peacefully and with the love and dignity they deserve. Feed and monitor feral and semi-feral cat colonies, practice TNR, provide assistance in case of accidents or illness.
2) Run our own non-profit, no-kill shelter to foster rescued animals . This retreat will provide long-term permanent housing where cats can roam freely. Appropriate facilities where they can be safe from the dangers of living in the streeets, such as: cruelty, abuse, poisoning and traffic.
It is essential for everyone to understand the hardships that homeless animals have to go through. On a daily basis, they have to fight cruelty, abuse, traffic, poisoning and infectious diseases among others. The lack of proper shelter in case of extreme weather conditons, shortage of food and water resources doesn’t make things any easier for them either. Day in and day out, homeless animals struggle to survive in extreme conditions and life expectancy does not usually exceed a year or two. Some suffer sudden death in tragic conditions while others experience long painful deaths after weeks or even months of dreadful agony.
We haven’t been able to turn a blind eye to this terrible situation we’ve been witnessing for years now and that’s why we keep on fighting tooth and nail, day after day, to keep helping them no matter what. So far, Project Change One Life’ has been entirely financed by its founders’ private resources and some donations received through online crowdfunding. We’re now reaching out to the world to help us MAKE A GREATER DIFFERENCE.
Our new cat shelter is now a reality! After a tough year of hard work, great effort and lots of sacrifices, we finally made it!
