Golden Egg is Within Reach for Homeless Dogs in Brazil

Golden Egg is Within Reach for Homeless Dogs in Brazil

 

It’s so close they can taste it.  The small but powerful rescue team known as “Dogs in Brazil” is tied for first place in a contest run by the Australian investment firm Sunsuper. In just seven days, Dogs in Brazil could win a $5,000 first place prize for their work, and the Care2 audience could easily bring them the victory.

A Little Background on Dogs in Brazil

Dogs in Brazil founders Janice Cabral and her husband Carlos moved to Brazil to care for Carlo’s sick mother and decided to set up a life there. They bought a country property and borrowed money to start a business in their new home town. It’s been 10 years since they first saw a sick dog wandering in traffic that needed help. That was the beginning of a beautiful personal journey.

They’ve saved a dog thrown from a car with broken bones, puppies left on rocks in streams to drown and dogs with terrible infections many would have given up on. Their saddest save was a puppy found alive tied in a bag with its dead mother, brothers and  sisters.

Janice and Carlos have funded all animal costs themselves until the floods in 2011, where many died. Janice and Carlos were the first to bring food to people in some remote areas, even before government help arrived and they went to great lengths to rescue animals. They lost their business in the flooded area, then lost their home and the dog shelter on their property. They’ve saved enough to rent a house, but with 20+ dogs in their care (many needing treatment), they’re relying on outside help.

I'm really behind in my mail but still want to leave a comment. Hope "Dogs of Brazil" won. God Bless you Janice and Carlos for all your sacrifices and all you do to help these dear animals. You are truly God's angels on earth. I wish you both a long, healthy and happy life, and you will be rewarded for your kindness.

I'm with Cindy, I can't get in either. But this message is to anyone that mistreats and abuse animals, you need to see the hardest jail time there is, and if I had my way, you would see jail time. There is no reason to hurt animals. They've done nothing to you, but love you, trust you, only to find out that humans are a mistake in their innocent little minds. I truly wish I was rich enough and had my way and power over anyone who mistreats and abuse animals. You would not like me. One day it will come back to any and all people who mistreats and abuse animals. Mark my word, it will come back one form or another.
