Sponsor a La Mariposa Dog!
Even though La Mariposa has closed, at least for the month of June and we are getting cancellations now for July, we are working to save our projects and our animals.
Many of you will know many of the dogs already – we have about 60 living in one or other of our sites but we feed and pay for vet services for about 20 who live in excellent homes, usually with one of our workers.
The most helpful is a monthly donation – each dog costs between $30 and $50 (depending on size and age) per month to feed and care for, plus a little bit to keep the workers employed who feed them etc. When we need to rescue a dog, we spend more in that moment for vet services. Operations for broken legs, for example, cost around $250.
You can sponsor a specific dog and we will keep you informed of his/her progress, but we would like to spread the help around so all of them are helped. They are after all mostly good friends! So please note that each dog can have more than one sponsor.
