Testimonial by Cintia Salazar Juarez of Refugio Zoobrevivientes
A year ago Joseph Liseno of Stray But Looking visited and volunteered with me and my animal rescue organization in Merlo, Buenos Aires. He was not afraid to get his hands dirty, joining me in various rescues as well as assisting in daily chores such as cleaning kennels, feeding dogs, rearranging shelter infrastructure, even feeding the pig we rescued. The pictures on this page tell much of the story.
In May 2019 I contacted Joseph requesting more help. The shelter rent was due and we were behind. With Argentina’s rising inflation, the landlord incrementally continues to raise the monthly ask. As Argentina’s economy worsens, our peso buys fewer bags of dog food each month, and people here have less money to donate. We are Argentines continue to get squeezed so I looked to Joseph to see if he could send $600 to cover our rent. Joseph and you, the folks that have bought cards and t-shirts from Stray But Looking came through for us. I told Joseph, “This time, you rescued me.”
