The Save the Dogs’ Street Unit has assisted 107 animals over the past year, distributing 575 kilograms of food, dog bowls, muzzles, and leashes, as well as 93 anti-parasitic treatments and 30 clinical visits.
These are just some of the numbers describing the work we have been doing.
Two years into the project, Save the Dogs’ initiatives continues not only to bring positive change to the lives of those who have lost everything and who find solace in the companionship of animals, but is also set to expand its reach to people experiencing extreme poverty.
Thanks to the contribution of the Milan Community Foundation and other entities, such as the Dr. Fulvia Anelli Fund and Fondazione Banca del Monte di Lombardia, we have successfully established essential financial foundations, enabling us to consider expanding the project to other parts of the city, promoting the growth of a culture of support not only for people but also for their animals.
This expansion will entail increasing our collaboration with other organizations, aiming to create the best possible conditions so that we can offer comprehensive support to people in need, ensuring inclusivity within the scope of our capabilities. In this endeavor, it is heartening to observe that all the humanitarian entities involved harbor no bias against animals; on the contrary, they recognize the significance of our efforts for the community.
This is another small yet significant milestone, made possible through the support of our backers.
