On March 20, 2020, the “Georgian Society for the Protection and Safety of Animals (GSPSA) launched a charitable, emergency program “Help the Strays.”
The program aims to help the stray animals grately affected of hard circumstences caused by Corona Virus COVID-19 crisis with food and global problems and to alleviate their difficult living conditions. The focus will be on regions of Georgia where homeless animals are particularly vulnerable and in need of immediate assistance.
Within the framework of the program, with the involvement of GSPSA members and volunteers, the purchase of food for stray animals living in the territory of Zugdidi Municipality are daily provided with food and neccesary medications.
With the help of GSPSA’s “Help the Strays” program, about one tonne of food was purchased in the first phase, which is set for one month (April 20) for an average of 100 animals per day.
The global problems caused by the COVID-19 pandemic crisis are likely to go away in a few months. GSPSA hopes for kind people and believes that together we can make life easier for stray animals in need and prevent them from starving to death.
GSPSA’s “Help the Strays” program provides:
Collection of targeted donations to the organization’s account – http://gspsa.org.ge/donate/
Identify and select areas (locations) where emergency help is needed
Appoint a responsible person in the selected region
Find volunteers in the selected region
Find storage space for food
Purchase food and transfer it to the destination
Supply food for stray animals by the volunteer-led staff
It should be noted that GSPSA’s goal in launching the “Help the Homeless” campaign was not only to help homeless animals in Zugdidi, but since all of this depends on both financial and human resources, the organization has chosen to provide a daily allowance for a certain number of animals, given the amount of money donated to a particular city.
Anyone can participate in this program as much as possible in the form of financial or material assistance.
For this purpose, you can transfer money to the organization’s account by the method acceptable to you.
When transferring, indicate the purpose of the “Help the Strays” program, or for Zugdidi’s animals.
