Calling on Chileans to share blankets

As we move into summer in the north, southern continents are going into winter, which in Chile means more suffering for the country’s 2.5 million street dogs. Not only is it cold, it is a wet cold that chills to the bone. In Patagonia dogs often freeze to death.

A Chilean organization called Animalindos is doing a campaign this month to collect blankets, quilts, bedspreads, etc., anything that can help to keep dogs warm and dry. The Animalindos shelter is in the foothills of the Andes, where winter temperatures are often down to -2°C. Many strays live in makeshift houses in garbage dumps, construction sites, vacant lots, under bridges…

Please donate if you can, and spread the word to others with a compassionate heart.

The contact at Animalindos is Carolina Kottmann

hola a todos,
como saben vienen los frios, las lluvias y nuestros perritos necesitan abrigo y calorcito.
Todo este mes estaremos haciendo la campaña de recoleccion de mantitas, frazadas viejas, colchas, cubrecamas, etc. todo lo que sirva para abrigar a nuestros perritos.
muchos de ellos viven en casitas improvisadas en basurales, sitios vacios, lugares donde nos han dejado armar una casita, bajo los puentes, etc. y el refugio de animalindos esta en la precordillera, las temperaturas en invierno son de -2° muchas veces y hay que abrigarlos en extremo, mas aun cuando son viejitos.
Les pido porfavor nos junten todo lo que se pueda para estar preparados para este invierno.
muchas gracias.
carolina kottmann
