Venezuelans day by day resigned ourselves to not having water in taps, and to lack internet with which to connect to the world. If the basic services do not reach most of the houses, and fill a refrigerator is an impossible dream for all of us, what does present Venezuela have for the dogs that inhabit its streets? Cold, hunger, illness, death and forgetfulness, but only in the less cruel cases since the homeless animals are now hunted to feed families with very low resources, or slaughtered in barbaric witchcraft rituals. The dogs of race are often exploited to sell their young at the border, and they die young and sick, always with an instant replacement so that production does not stop.
The government is not interested in protecting animals, nor are there legal institutions that protect them. Their well-being depends on normal people, like me, who are committed to the rights of animals. They depend on the strength that you give me to be able to create a more godly reality, during the time I have left of life. I want to bring compassion and justice to the lives of these abandoned, ill and mistreated dogs.
Dog food is terribly hard to find, and to buy, for a Venezuelan. Recently, several bags of dog food arrived at a store, it probably runs out soon, that's why I'm starting this fundraiser; every day many homeless dogs depend on the food I provide them, and I pray for not seeing the day their dishes remain empty. Each bag of food, no matter the size, will provide relief to their stomachs and hearts. Please, if you wish to help, you can pray, share the fundraiser or make a donation. Please give your voice to a homeless dog in Venezuela, since they have been forgotten by their own country.
Price list of the avaliable food bags in the store
In Venezuela the currency is the sovereign bolivar, every time a kind person makes a donation in dollars, I must exchange currency, which means that I must sell the dollars in exchange for sovereign bolivars. Currently, each dollar equals 500 Bs. S (that's what the person who does me the favor of doing the currency exchange gives me), knowing this, I will explain what is the price of each one of the bags in dollars:
1$ = 500 Bs. S
PERRARINA 8KG = 10187,00 Bs. S = 21$
PERRARINA 4KG = 5364,00 Bs. S = 11$
K-NINA 18KG = 33179,00 Bs. S = 67$
DOG CHOW 8KG = 21942,00 Bs. S = 43$
PROPLAN 3KG = 21532,00 Bs. S = 43$
There's also one last option that isn't included in the list of prices, it's named LanzaCan and is way more cheaper and offers more quantity of kibble: 18kg by just 15$. The issue with this brand is that it isn't nutritious and it doesnt work well with cases of severe anemia, delicate sickness or other special conditions, it can even cause diarrhea in some dogs, that's why it's always necessary to count with better kibbles (like the ones in the list). I can use LanzaCan but in order to prevent any damage to the health of the dogs I need to mix it with other types of dog food.
