Review for Animal-Kind International, Jemez Springs, NM, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

A very close friend is the hand behind Helping Hands for Hounds of Honduras and over the years I have seen her struggle to maintain her shelter with inadequate funds. What a difference ANIMAL-KIND INTER-
NATIONAL has made to her efforts to rescue street dogs, give them good care with veterinary assistance and maintain them in the only available animal shelter in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. AKI has helped in every way, providing food, medications, surgery (both emergency and sterilization), veterinary and shelter care supplies, and support. And I know personally that every cent of every donation goes directly to AKIĀ“s projects. To me, Karen Menczer and Sherry (Pilar) Thorn are angels, direct descendants of Saint Francis of Assisi, and the world is a better place for their work. Thank you, ANIMAL-KIND INTERNATIONAL and Karen, for your invaluable contributions!

Review for Animal-Kind International, Jemez Springs, NM, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have personly witnessed the results of the funding by AKI to the Helping Hounds of Honduras shelter. Pilar would not be able to maintain her rescue shelter without the direct financial help from Karen Menczer. The money is used for food, maintenance, medications, vet care, spray and neuter events, chemotherapy, whatever her beloved dogs, cats, birds need. It is a challenge just to keep the facility running. The cost alone of just feeding everybody can be astronomical. The budget is so tight. AKI makes such a difference. I know that the shelter is so very grateful. Seeing the animals receive such kindness and love along with their necessities is a blessing. As a volunteer at the shelter, I give thanks to Karen and AKI for their assistance to a very unique, deserving, and grateful organization that fills such a great need here in Honduras.
