How Dogs In Brazil Started..........
My name is Jan and my husband is called Carols. More than 10years ago we moved to Brazil to look after Carlos' mum who was ill. When we were moving to a place to make a permanent home, we saw a dog in traffic that was ignored and needed help. We had to save him! The rest is history .......
We couldn't stop at saving just one dog, after we saw him, we had to help as many of them as we could.... and still do!
So many dogs in Brazil roam the streets treated like vermin and thought of as pests. People can be so very cruel to them.
What we hope for........
We want to educate people that dogs can be friends and loved and love back. We also want to let people know the importance of de-sexing their pets, so there are less unwanted puppies out there.
Before we can get to that education place, we still struggle to look after the dogs we have saved by choice, while dogs are dumped on our doorstep and locals tell us of dogs in cruel conditions that need us.
We need your help!!! Not all help means money..... Even just spreading the word about things here, liking us on Facebook (Click here), following us on Twitter (Click Here) or reading our (Joey) Blog (Click here). Any way you can help us get to educating people that these supposed street dogs need love as much as your family pet we REALLY appreciate!!!
Of course we do need funds, as we survive only on the kindness of caring people that donate to our charity. If you would like to give anything deposits can made directly to our Paypal Account. The email we use for our Paypal Account is firstname.lastname@example.org
Our reality ........
In our small neighborhood part of Brazil we have no RSPCA. Locals see we save dogs and tell us when one struggles.
As animal lovers Carlos and I can't turn our back on a suffering animal.
We wish someone lovely would adopt our rescues after vet treated.
Rarely do people step forward to adopt adult dogs here in Brazil. with puppies we can be lucky, but most adult dogs become a permanent resident at Dogs In Brazil.
We will keep saving dogs and keep hoping that Dogs In Brazil gets enough support to run education and adoption programs and gets vets to support free or cheap de-sexing of pets programs in Brazil.
