Brenda has been sheltering animals for 6 years now in her private home. At present, 38 dogs, 12 cats, 2 dogs are handicapped. One of them is so disabled, that it needs a contraption to be able to move, her husband has to pick it up to put it in there. She had started to build a shelter in Jaluco, her building material got stolen.
She also needs money for the legal procedures (lawyer, fees) to turn the venture into a non-profit organization (Asociación civil ), which seems to be quite an expensive and tedious procedure.
She is very pro-active and checks with the animals once she has found a shelter for them. Once she was looking after a sick and as she thought, homeless dog, till she realized it had an owner. She talked to him and told him, he needed to take the dog to the vet, but the guy said, he had no time . So she told him, that she herself would bring the dog to the vet, but that he had to ´pick it up. And so it happened.
She and her husband are both working, the husband in the llanteria on the highway and she doing the cleaning in the paper shop. And yet they find the time to look after all those creatures in need. So please, let us all help out as well.
Those of you who are coming down from the North by car, and of course everybody already here as well, donate clothes or other things, you don’t want any more, Mexicans like to do second hand sales to raise money, that would help a lot as well.
She has a Facebook page, Brenda Ramos, with photos and videos.
