Our shelter currently holds 67 dogs and is located in one of the poorest areas of Loiza. We rescue dogs off the streets and beaches, and rehabilitate them so they become adoptable pets and get a chance at the life they were born to live--- with a family that loves them.
This year, we are so excited to be participating in the Fund the Shelters Challenge!
All donations made through May 9th are counted towards competing to win the grand prize of $50,000! That means our rescue efforts, doubled!
Additionally, each week there are bonus prizes we have the opportunity to win. You can help us get there. Thank you!

Michelson Found Animals in partnership with NBC & Telemundo stations are excited to announce the Fund the Shelters Challenge. This exciting new Challenge brings together two successful existing programs - the Michelson Found Animals Saving Pets Challenge campaign and NBC and Telemundo owned stations’ Clear the Shelters annual pet adoption campaign. The Fund the Shelters Challenge offers a new, bigger opportunity for animal welfare organizations to raise funds to support lifesaving programs and to help offset reduced or waived adoption fees during Clear the Shelters Day (August 17).
The Fund the Shelters Challenge is open to animal welfare organizations dedicated to keeping pets out of shelters and in loving homes. This includes, but is not limited to, shelters and rescue groups participating in Clear the Shelters.
- The team that raises the most during the Challenge wins a $50,000 donation
- Second place gets $35,000
- Third gets $20,000
- Fourth gets $15,000
- Fifth gets $10,000
- Sixth gets $5,000
And, there will be weekly Bonus Challenges for organizations to win another $65,000.
