Main aim of the charity
The main aim is to rescue abandoned animals in the streets, take care of them, offer them love, vet cares, a new family. But also to educate the inhabitants of the Island, obviously not to drop not wanted animals by a tree with a rope around the neck, but also to sterilize the females to prevent from unwanted pregnancies. State of minds is hard to change.
How the employee got involved and why
A year ago, we decided to adopt a dog, from a shelter. We met, randomly, RPA (Réunion Protection Animale), an association based in the Réunion Island. Muthu entered in our lives... and so did the association, as I stayed in touch with them.
What work does the employee do for charity?
I was following them on the social medias, and when I saw they were looking for foster families, I contacted them.
My work is to pick up the dog at the airport, where they arrive after a 10 hour flight from La Réunion, at around 5:30 AM, to keep them home from a few hours to a few days, until the new family can come, and to sometimes drive a dog to the family when they do not have transportation. I became a "RPA angel"....
