Mission: Defensa Animal de Rincon is a Puerto Rico based non profit working to increase sterilization rates among cats and dogs on the island while improving all animal lives through educational programs, awareness and offering assistance to animal rescuers.
Results: Hundreds of dogs and cats sterilized and many horses helped. We share our exact numbers at the beginning of each month. On our blog DefensaRincon.org/OurNumbers and on our Facebook/DefensaRincon page
Target demographics: anyone in Puerto Rico rescue/help a dog, cat or horse
Direct beneficiaries per year: helped hundreds of dogs and cats living on the streets, via spay/neuter and adoptions. We helped injured or neglected horses.
Geographic areas served: animal welfare and rescue for un-owned animals of Puerto Rico. Our animals are FREE to GREAT homes. They are vaccinated and sterilized, because money is something we can come up with - great homes is something harder to find!
Programs: Open Rescue, Free Horse Class, Trap & Release
This community minded group of rescuers and volunteers are all heart and brave as hell. They are
Completely selfless and will go to great lengths to help all animals above there own needs.
They care, they're unified and 100% all in for the animals.
I have been going to PR for years on vacation.. For a few years , there were SO many dogs in the street.. It made me sad to go there. NOW.. Hardly any!! Know why? It's DAR.. They REALLY have made such a difference & not only need but deserve this ! Thank You,, Gloria Hufnagel
I have seen this organization fight for the homeless animals in this little town by consistently answering the calls when a very sick dog is found in the area. They use the any public medium to advertise their pets for adoption. This organization love what they do.
This organization, not only helps the stray animals in Puerto Rico, they try to find them forever homes in the states. They also do a free horse care class and share info of puppies that are looking for homes. Theyre doing a great job.
