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!

Since May 29th, 2008, we have rescued unwanted, abandoned, neglected, stray, injured and sick dogs wherever we were needed. Today, we look back on 11 years of rescuing and re-homing thousands of dogs.

But we also want to take this moment to thank you for loyally following us on Facebook and Instagram, for cheering with us through our successes, and mourn with us through our heartbreaks. Your support has allowed us to rescue, vet, spay, neuter and adopt countless dogs who would have otherwise never known love. We couldn’t do any of this without our tremendous donors, sponsors, and fellow animal advocates. This day is as much about you as it is about us. From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU.

Our biggest wish remains that one day we won’t be needed anymore. Until then, we hope that we can continue to count on your support. Whether it’s through an adoption, a one-time donation, a recurring monthly donation, or simply by helping us to spread the word ― every little bit helps.

Warm regards and a paw shake,

Team CARF Curaçao
Fostering Second Chances Since 2008.
