We are a small nonprofit organization dedicated to providing shelter to surrendered small pets; to date, we've helped chinchillas, mice, hamsters, Norway rats, gerbils, hedgehogs, guinea pigs, bunnies, ferrets, and sugar gliders.
We are in South Florida and hurricane season is a fear every year. When we are in the path, we have to load as many animals as will fit in our van and head away from the storm. The loss of power means death to the animals we help because they do not sweat. We drove to Tennessee to escape Irma. We want to be a safe place for our community to bring their alternative pets. To further serve our community, we need to be able to keep the air conditioning going when power fails.
We ask for your help. Our options are 60 solar panels and multiple batteries OR a 22kw Standby Generator and 2 250-gallon propane tanks.
When considering a cause to support, we hope you will open your heart to the often misunderstood alternative small pets. They are not common like dogs and cats, but they are extraordinary souls and worth saving every bit as much as all the lives saved by other rescues and non-profits.
Please help us help them to have as much love and life as possible.
