Hi Folks! This has been a tough year for the entire world, it seems, but thanks to you, our wonderful supporters, our shelter  'kids' are all doing well and we were able to re-open our doors to continue rescuing. 
                                                             Hulk and Cosita, our senior
                                                                 bonded couple are being adopted together

Every month when bills come due and we still have vet bills and medical needs that we can not afford, I get this nervous lump in my throat knowing that I need to cover our operating expenses which include medical, food, shipping, utility and emergency expenses for our pups, so I am asking for your help.                                                                                        
Please send anything you can - no donation is ever too small and your donation is tax deductible. 

Amigos de los Animales (ADLA) is a non-profit 501c(3) animal rescue organization so any time you give, it is tax deductible.  If you are searching for a non-profit for 2017, we really need your help and we hope you will consider donating to us. Many giving options are listed in this edition. Thank you so much for your generosity and caring.  

Thanks and God Bless!!

Great News For a Successful 2017
Dear friends and supporters,
It's that time again when we need your donations to continue our efforts.  So many 4 legged babies need our help to leave the misery and suffering they are facing every day of their lives. We need your help so we can keep saving lives and making a difference for the animals we rescue the people who they rescue.   We are fighting the good fight in Puerto Rico!  
But we really need your help to be able to continue in our mission. We are hoping that we can count on you to help us fix the shelter but more importantly, we have growing vet bills and all kinds of operational costs we must cover.

Keep praying, visualising and working for the changes you want to see in 2017.  
Our Vision:
1) $5000 monthly to pay our monthly shelter budget: utilities, keep our vet bills paid and up to date and food and medication for the babies.  This also covers our shipping expenses to send them
to our shelter partners for adoption in the northeast US. 
2) A huge shelter rehab.  We need $30,000.00 to start.  If you would like to donate to our shelter fund please let us know that on your donation.
(Lucero our love girl)

We are proud to have done great work for the past ten years; we have rescued, rehabbed and re-homed thousands of dogs, cats and horses and have brought to PR an amazing Animal Control Officer / Cruelty Investigator certification course in collaboration with the PR Health Dept. and Career Development Institute.
Amigos de los Animales has done everything possible to help independent rescuers and other animal rescue organisations in PR and we have been firm supporters of Puerto Rico's excellent Animal Welfare Law 154.  We all have the capacity to give love and help others"give back".

Introducing 2 of Our New Board Members:
President, Attorney Amanda Rose Collazo Maguire, Mandy (as she's called by those who love her) grew up in Ponce, Puerto Rico where she lived for about 25 years. She moved to New Jersey to study at Princeton and moved to California for a few years after that, before returning to Puerto Rico. She now lives in the metro area and works as an attorney. She got involved with Amigos de los Animales through her friend Ela who asked if she wanted to come volunteer one Saturday. She fostered and adopted Wendy Bee from Amigos in March 2016. Wendy’s a cute little black "Sato" who also has two sibling kitties: Bandit and Gigi.
Mandy has always been aware of the devastating animal welfare situation in Puerto Rico. She became more enthusiastic about helping change the situation when she became involved in Amigos. "The more I learn, the more people I meet that care and are involved in making a difference, and the more needy animals I see finding good homes; the more inspired I become."
I say Amen to that!!

Vice President, Dr. Ela Stolarczyk was born in Poland where, during her
childhood the site of a homeless dog on the street was not uncommon. She grew up observing the end of communism, and how it changed lives of people…apparently also lives of animals! Nowadays when she visits her homeland she no longer sees homeless animals on the streets. She moved to the United States to earn her PhD and since then she's been working as a research scientist in the biomedical field. During 10 years of living in Kentucky she never saw a homeless dog on the streets, perhaps because of highly efficient animal control agencies? In Kentucky she adopted Leo, her first dog and best friend. Leo has travelled with Ela a lot, within the US, Poland and Puerto Rico. The first time she came to Puerto Rico on vacation she was enchanted by the warmth of the people and undeniable beauty of this little island. However, this image contrasted dramatically with the number of homeless, often sick and malnourished dogs and cats wandering the streets, and the number of animal corpuses on the sides of the highways. It was (and is) heartbreaking…Once Ela moved to Puerto Rico she decided to actively do something towards improving the welfare of animals and reducing the overpopulation. This is when she wrote to us and came to ADLA for a Saturday cleanup…and stayed. The rest is history!
" From ADLA I adopted Kimba and Bongo, the children of the first dog I rescued with Adri. Now my days are brightened by my pack of 3 happy dogs, each, very different characters.

Glen Venezio, my brother......
Please help Glen feed 250 cats a day.   He is a trouper who goes out every evening come rain holidays or storms, and he's out there feeding and checking on his 4 legged babies.  We need help to sterilise and vaccinate them also so if you would like to be part of this effort, please let us know on your donations! You may donate to Glen directly through his ATH Movil App. to 787-231-4981 or  through PayPal at: 
 Thanks so much for reading!
Sonny is a sensitive good little schnauzer boy.    
Maya is finished her chemo for cancer AND
now she is waiting for her Heartworm Treatment so she can be released to go to her new family in Massachusetts!
