Tomorrow, four HWAC staff members, including President Mike Arms, will be traveling to Puerto Rico. Mike will be speaking at a national conference to animal welfare personnel from around Puerto Rico. Many people might not realize that Puerto Rico has a 97% kill rate. The animal welfare personnel have a strong desire to change their ways and to stop the killing at that is way Helen Woodward Animal Center staff members are making the trip!
They will also be touring the Canita Sanctuary which was established by two American Army Veterans. The sanctuary is need of desperate help. They have more than 600 animals but no money or food for them. Each day they find newly abandoned animals at their door. The small number of people working there are committed into transforming the sanctuary and the Center will be there to help.
Stay tuned next week for an update and pictures.
