Don't let our wolves become homeless.
The Iberian Wolf Recovery Center in Portugal, my country, is in danger of losing everything it accomplished in the last 25 years, helping these endagered species.
They need to raise $250,000 in order to buy the land on which the center stood for all these years. If they don't, they'll risk having to start their hard work, all over again, and look (without certainty) for a new home for the wolves.
So please, if you can help at least by spreading the word, it would be much appreciated! If you can donate at least 5$, please do it here: [link]
Thank you so much."
And the update I made to further explain their situation:"HEY EVERYONE. I have a little update concerning the wolves.
Unfortunately, it's not good news. If anyone is wondering why is this group, that protects these beautiful creatures, being forced to pay for the lands on which they live, after 25 years, Here's the explanation.
In 1987, two years after the Grupo Lobo gathered (the group that made the wolf project come true), a new law was established here in Portugal. No wolves could be kept in captivity, it was, then, forbidden by law. All wolves known to be kept in those conditions, where to be PUT DOWN. That's right. Killed.
So in that year, an english citizen that lived there, where the wolves now are, offered the lands to the group, so these wolves wouldn't be put down and had a place to live.
But now, after 25 years, he decided the wolves had to leave those lands if the Grupo Lobo didn't pay the 250,000$ that the group is, in this moment, trying it's hardest to gather.
They came to an agreement with the owner, and they will be paying the ammount in annual installments. They only have money, right now, from the fund raising that is going on right now, enough to keep the wolves here only till the end of this year.
Please, please help. As I said before, if you can't donate, keep spreading the word! If you can donate, the link is above!
And please keep in mind that these people, the ones that in 25 years made the project come true and provide a good life for the iberian wolves, are people who made this out of love. They are no governmental institution, this is just a project, made true by people who love these creatures and couldn't stand the idea of having them being killed because they had no place to live!
All the little money they make, goes to the wolves. Right now, they need everyone to help out, more than ever. So if you can please donate, it's much appreciated. If you can't, like I said before, please keep spreading the word, so more people are aware of this and so more people can donate as well!
And as a final note, recently, 3 beautiful cubs were born! These 3 babies and all the wolves here need your help. Keep this spreading around, guys! Thank you so much!"
Any help is very welcome. Thank you.
