Today is a very special day for us as it marks our 11th Anniversary ― but not just our organization's founding. Because CARF is Curaçao's first hands-on, no-kill rescue organization, this milestone marks the very origins of dog rescue on our island!
We would like to thank the generous people who make our work possible. It is through your generosity that we have been able to save thousands of lives over the past decade ― that's right, 2018 marked our 10th anniversary!
Alenna's story starts at the landing strip of Hato International Airport. At least, that is where we start her story. We never found out where exactly she came from, but she was first spotted wandering at the airport. The people there were unable to catch her and we were told that if we didn't pick her up, it might end bad for her.
* WARNING, GRAPHIC IMAGES * When Invictus was found, we were at a complete loss for words. The huge gaping wound on his back (image in article) was not caused by an infection but allegedly inflected upon him by human hands. Human hands using a machete.
Who remembers Marnix? That's right. Not too long ago, Marnix was our CARFIE Of The Week. Well, we have some good news. Because Marnix is officially off the market!
CARFIE Hato would like to thank the team at Mr Green for virtually adopting him. Hato has been in our care for many years but up till now nobody came to adopt him. Thanks to the donation of Mr Green, Hato now has his very own guardian. Thank you, Mr Green!
Hip, hip, hurray! Kingsley has found his forever family... in The Netherlands! His flight arrived in Amsterdam earlier today and he is currently getting accustomed to his new home and the temperatures in his new country - haha.
As a non-profit organization without any government support, we fully rely on the generosity of donors and volunteers in order to fund and fulfill our rescue efforts. Thanks to your donations we were able to make some miracles happen in 2016!
Our little princess Fox has made it home. Our first French CARFIE. Vive la Fox! 🇫🇷
Happy ends don't come any better than this. Piki & Poeh (now Bobby & Marly) were breeding machines for their deadbeat owner who never provided any sort of medical care, love, attention or even anything remotely considered proper living conditions
