8-Save a Gato
Their mission is to humanly control the population of stray cats in the old city of San Juan P.R. They spay and neuter, vaccinate and feed. They also have a great adoption program for the kittens we find in the streets and a place to care for the sick and injured cats. They hope one day that all the cats will be sterilized so we can then help the other cities to do the same.
9-Hope Animal Rescue
Their mission is one of compassion for the homeless, rehabilitation for the physically and mentally abused. Their goals are to promote spay/neuter, stop the use of gas chambers to kill our homeless pets, and to educate people on how to treat all animals with respect and dignity.
