The Story

SOS FUND Dear friends, after a night of horrendous thunderstorms and flooding the ESMA shelter is like a disaster zone. Roofs have collapsed, leaving all the animals unprotected from the elements, kennel areas, rooms and corridors have been flooded and are full of debris, every cat, dog, blanket and bed is soaked, electric fans, that help keep our dogs cool in the summer heat have also been damaged. Our 1200 animals are wet, scared and confused. All the sand that we recently replaced in the outside dog area has been washed away. We have a huge clean up task ahead of us. As well as the obvious clean up and care for all the animals, we need assistance to hire manpower as there simply just aren’t enough hands available for this huge job. We need to replace the roofs as soon as possible and the sand (these are way outside our means just now) repair windows, replace electric fans and wash blankets and beds for all the animals as nothing was left untouched. This is a disaster. We are on our knees begging for your help. Please believe us when we say no donation is too small. If you cannot donate, please share our SOS Fund publicly. Thank you for your concern and for helping us to help the animals.

2 weeks have passed since we at ESMA suffered devastating damage to our shelter. Donations have stopped. We are on our knees trying to protect our 1,200+ animals. We haven't even started to repair the huge dog shelter yet as we do not have enough money. All the sun shades we had to shield the 800 dogs in outside pens from the blistering heat have been damaged beyond repair, and the weather just keeps getting hotter. We do not want our animals to suffer from the desert heat. We do not want them to die from the blistering heat when summer arrives. The sewage drainer, essential for maintaining hygiene and keeping illness at bay is broken, there is a lot of sewage waste with 800 dogs, and the weather is hot, so this is also a priority. We cannot allow disease to start when we have so many animals in close proximity to each other. Fans and air-conditioning units were soaked in the storm and need to be replaced. The kittens and sick cats cannot handle the intense desert heat and several dies last year before we were able to afford the air conditioning. Please don't let us or the cats go through that again. We couldn't bear it. We have 1,200 + rescued animals that rely on us to care for them. Animals that have survived severe cruelty, road accidents, poisonings and even shootings. We cannot let them down now. There is a lot of work that needs to be done to give them the basic protection they truly need. - we really can't do this without donations. Please, please help. With hope, ESMA

As the temperature climbs to 110+, the urgency to re-build the shelter continues. The team has been working flat out in the scorching heat to clean and clear the debris and remove parts of the shelter rendered dangerous by the storm. Construction has started on the cat shelter and we are making good progress there but we still do not have enough money for the huge dog shelter, the re-wiring and the air-conditioning units. With sandstorms forecast it is essential that all parts of the damaged shelter are rebuilt to prevent further injury to the dogs. Sandstorms cause eye, ear and skin irritations…and our animals have really suffered enough already. To exacerbate the problem, all our funds are going into the rebuilding of the shelter and we are now out of much needed medicine and are struggling to buy food. Talk about desperate! We wish we could wave a wand and fix all the problems in a flash but it times time, and unfortunately, a lot of money. We can supply the time and hands needed to rebuild as long as we have our supporters behind us. We plead with you not to forget or get bored of our appeals. To keep donating, sharing and holding your own fundraisers. Please continue to help our 1200+ furbabies. We cannot do this without you. With much love and heartfelt thanks, ESMA
