Carmen' s Freedom Riders!

Organized by: Carmen Delgado

Living in a high kill city like San Antonio is a moral and ethical struggle. Rescuers are finding a solution by transferring animals from high density areas to lower density, no kill areas of our state or even to Canada : whatever it takes, we want to get them there.

I have been rescuing and driving dogs and cats to rescue for years as a freelancer. What does this mean? It means, like many such individuals, that my heart is full but my pockets are empty. My car is great, but gas and maintenance run up quickly and come to big bucks every month.

This fundraiser will help me help animals get to where they need to go. Not everyone has money to move a pet somewhere; vetting and feeding tapped them out. This is where you come in. Your gift can save Death Row animals get to safety.

The plan is to incorporate, attain non-profit status, and rule the roadway with Freedom Riders!

Initially we need to purchase two vehicles : a Ford Transit Connect customizable van and a used Prius Wagon. The van for larger groups and longer hauls, the wagon for the multiple weekly trips from San Antonio to points such as Austin, DFW and short distance "tag legs" of longer trips. At present, I drive over 500 miles a week on my own dime. While raising funds for new vehicles, I still need to gas up and rotate the tires, pay higher insurance limits, a dedicated cell phone, etc.

Lend a paw. Our pets will thank you.
