DONATE TO US
Headed to the islands again!
We are pretty much in a constant state of raising funding for our clinics. Because so much of our supplies are consumable we are always replacing them. Surgical gowns, gloves, injectable medicines, deworming treatment, vaccines, pain meds, collars and leashes, flea & tick preventative ... well the list goes on and on. All of that is purchased again and again for each clinic.
When our medical trailer was stolen earlier in 2023 we had to start from scratch with tables, anesthesia machines, storage tubs, muzzles, surgical instruments, cots, towels, kennels, everything you see in the photo above and much more. Oh, and a trailer too.
So are funding needs are for:
consumables that are used on the dogs and cats we spay/neuter
travel expenses to get our veterinarians and vet technicians to our clinic location
rooms for them to stay in (they double/triple up)
All of our staff are volunteers so no money goes towards paying for their time and expertise. They do this out of the goodness of their heart. Big huge hearts each and everyone of them.
Once we announce a clinic we share an Amazon link with the supplies we need for that clinic. We use any monetary donations to pay for medicines not available through Amazon, travel expense like plane tickets and rental cars, and for rooms.
We are a 501(c)(3) EIN #46-4129178 so donations are tax deductible when no goods or services were received in exchange.
For the first 10 days of December HPAB will be trapping some of the stray population on a Caribbean island. Our goal is 300 plus dogs and we have assembled a team of eight we believe that can accomplish that. These stray dogs are barely existing with no access to food or fresh water and certainly no veterinary care to give them a fighting chance against heartworm disease, distemper and parvo.
Without this trapping effort these dogs‘ life expectancy is 1.5 years. Once trapped the local veterinarians will be altering the animals, and keeping them overnight, if needed. A plan for adopting them out is already in place.
HPAB was chosen for our proven skillset in animal handling and trapping. We are as fear free as possible, including and especially, with any dog or cat in the feral community. We have been deployed to this island on two separate occasions, once for cats and once for dogs. We were also asked to trap in Chernobyl and removed the first 12 non-radioactive puppies and put them on a freedom train.
HPAB is known in the animal rescue community for their kindness and compassion towards all fearful animals so we are called on these challenging missions. Please help us help the stray dogs by donating.
We can accept monetary donations via Venmo and Paypal. Just click the logos to find us on those platforms.
