The Animal House Jamaica is in DIRE need of a freezer and a refrigerator to keep the animals’ food (meat scraps & such) and medicines at the proper temperature. No one would believe the condition of the one they are now using! Their nasty old freezer is on its’ last legs, as you can see from the photo. That's not dirt, that's rust! It’s amazing this rust-bucket is even still working (just a little bit)! The hinges have rusted completely through and broken off. The lid has to be weighted down with an old bucket, filled with water. And The Animal House Jamaica has not had the “luxury” of a refrigerator for over three years, since the old one conked out!
About The Animal House Jamaica: Jamaica has many forgotten animals. Abused, abandoned, injured, and often left to die alone in the hot sun. What for many is an island paradise is, for these animals, an island hell. The Animal House Jamaica was formed to give these animals a second chance. Their mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home as many of these homeless souls as possible, and to offer the few that prove to be un-adoptable a safe and secure sanctuary for life. Not only is The Animal House Jamaica presently suffering from an over-crowding situation, but they currently do not even have running water at the shelter (which means water has to be delivered weekly by truck).
PLEASE consider helping by donating to this VERY worthy cause – the freezer and fridge are necessary for the animals!!! Thanks in advance for any assistance you are able to give. Any amount will be greatly appreciated – no matter how small or large!!!
