Hello Everybody,
I am reposting this email I received from Stasya Briggs at Amigos de Animales. This non-profit organization has done so much to eliminate animal suffering through rescues, sterilization and education in Zihua, but they are running out of money! We are happy to support their program but can we get some other animal lovers to commit to $10 or $20 a month? That's barely a lunch in the US. You can find them here -- https://www.facebook.com/groups/amigosdeanimales Thanks a million!

State of Emergency
by La Rusa
Due to medical/financial difficulties, Stasya Briggs and Mike Heiner, can’t continue funding the program as they were, providing as much financial support as was needed.

It means Amigos de Animales have to find a way to raise approximately $ 2500 monthly to be sustainable and continue to operate, investing in education program, providing free and low cost spay and neuter, and of course, continue rescue and running our safe house .

With heavy hearts , Shelley and Stasya made an impossibly difficult decision - , temporarily, stop taking animals in.

Our capacity and vision was always 25-30 animals.

We have 81 between safe house, HLR and foster homes in the village.

Please, help us continue saving lives .

If 100 people donate 10 dollars monthly, we will be half way there !

thank you, Stasya and Shelley and all furry children

Is that $2500 USD/month? Almost 50,000 pesos a month or almost 600,000 pesos a year? Just curious. No judgement.

If they can continue with their sterilization efforts hopefully in the future the numbers will be down and they won't need as much money. Plus hopefully their education efforts in teaching the children how to care for animals will help to change the mindset of the community.

i think you should point out that this is the group in Barra de Potosi. There is also a group(SPAZ) in Zihua and in Troncones. (Surfers for Strays) They all do fabulous work and they all are always needing funding!

The Sociedad Protectora de Animales de Zihuatanejo (SPAZ) also needs funds to continue its necessary campaigns to sterilize street dogs and cats here in Zihua, provide low-cost campaigns to lower-income families, pet food, medicines and vet services. Consider funding this group also:

Yes, I had forgotten about SPAZ and that Amigos de Animales was only working in Barra. Donations to all three groups can't be a bad thing.
