Animal welfare & conservation

For many years, a farm close to the city of Samaná has been helping animals in need by providing a home, food and arranging medical treatments. Dogs, horses, mules, cows and many other animals live on the ranch in the middle of the beautiful nature that surrounds Samaná. This program is in collaboration with FUNDACIÓN ALDEAS DE PAZ.


About the Program

HELP RESCUE NEGLECTED ANIMALS, PROVIDE CARE AND ASSIST IN MAINTAINING THE FARM!

There is always a lot to do and support is much needed to be able to continue providing care to the animals and finding new homes, especially for the almost 50 dogs living on the farm. You can become a part of this project by taking care of the animals, training them and maintaining the property.  By raising awareness and educating children about how animals can increase our well-being if we take care of them, you can also contribute to improving the situation in the long run.
