Lilo is (we are a 501(c)(3) registered nonprofit organization with FIN: 85-1563746) helping a family and its neighborhood reach out to the Western side of the world. They are located in the 三盛 neighborhood of Fuzhou, China, and are a street of avid animal lovers struggling to support and keep up with their arms which instinctively open up to the hundreds of stray dogs lonely, injured, and shaking all throughout the province. The family in specific that reached out to us have rescued 7 stray dogs into their own homes, 2 of which were severely maimed and require almost 24/7 care for the rest of their lives. They are having a hard time caring for these dogs, but most importantly, are absolutely heartbroken that their doors have been forced shut due to running out of resources. They live in a particularly economically drained area and their houses can only physically fit so many, plus dog food, toys, special custom-made wheelchairs, monthly casts, surgeries, medicine, and all other necessities have utterly broken their banks. Their entire street is in the same ditch where homes are bursting with dogs, but there is never an end in sight.
We are striving to establish the first animal shelter in 三盛，Fuzhou, China, a place where animal welfare weighs only on the extreme sides of the spectrum where animal lovers are obsessed and those who aren't... well... treat strays less than kindly.
Just $5 is around ¥30 (¥=yuan- Chinese currency) and can afford a small bag of dog food. $25 is around ¥160 and affords a year's supply of flea and tick treatment. $100 is almost ¥650 and can afford an entire vet inspection and neuter/spay procedure and the list goes on. Of course, any amount is welcome and so so enormously appreciated because as you just saw, your one dollar for us can afford much more than you can imagine there in 三盛 and has the potential to save a myriad of lives. If you could please consider donating to our animal shelter goal, that would be such a blessing and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Please help us bring these precious animals into the arms of the loving families they deserve and allow these precious people to resume their lives' passion once again!
