A Nicaragua veterinarian clinic is helping abused animals by rescuing and caring for animals. There are more than a million stray animals in Nicaragua. These include dogs and cats that have been abused, starved, run over, poisoned, and suffer many health problems in addition to the abuse they receive from people. These veterinarians also help wild animals and horses. Animals don’t deserve such horrific treatment. They need to be cared for and loved. Animals are loving beings that feel pain, hunger, fear, abandonment. And they mourn, just like humans. Helping abused animals is difficult when there isn’t enough funding to help so many animals.
There is a gofundme page to help raise money for caring of these animals. Visit https://www.gofundme.com/7qmtfc44 to help.

Disaster Kit for Animals
Keep everything stored in sturdy containers (a duffel bag, storage bin, etc.) that can be carried easily. Keep your kit in a place accessible to all members of your family.
– Extra collars, leashes, harnesses and secure carriers to transport animals safely and to ensure that your animals can’t escape. Carriers should be large enough for the animal to stand comfortably, turn around and lie down, as it may be home for hours at a time while you seek shelter. Include extra blankets or towels for bedding and warmth.
– Medications (a two-week supply) and medical records stored in a waterproof container, including contact information for your veterinarian and authorization for your animal to be treated if necessary.
– A companion animal first aid book and kit. Consult the first aid book or your veterinarian as to what you should include in your first aid kit.
– Current photos and descriptions of your animals to help others identify them in case you become separated and to prove that they are yours.
– Extra ID tags. Temporary tags on which you can write are good to have in case your contact information changes during the disaster.
– Enough of your animals’ regular food and water to last at least a week per animal. Rotate your reserve food and water supply every three months so that it stays fresh. Canned food should be in single-serving size, as you may not have access to a refrigerator. Also have an extra supply of any vitamins or other supplements your animals take regularly.
– Food and water bowls and a manual can opener, and spoon for canned food.
– Litter and small litter box. Poop scoop.
– Newspapers, paper towels, plastic trash bags and cleaning products, including dish soap.
– Pet beds and toys, if you can easily take them, to reduce stress.
– A list of safe places to go, including friends and family, veterinary offices, boarding kennels, animal-friendly motels and nearby animal shelters. Include addresses and phone numbers.
– Extras of any special items your animals need. Especially important for small animals that have very specific needs.

The Gentle Barn, located in California, is helping abuse animals with its efforts at rescuing, rehabilitating and providing sanctuary to abused animals. They connect animals with people in an awesome way.
Ellie Laks, the founder of The Gentle Barn, always knew that animals are therapeutic to people. Together with Jay Weiner, they are not only helping abused animals, but also bringing children much joy at their property. Visitors enjoy seeing and hugging the farm animals, and learn about plant-based diets.
“The ultimate goal is to open Gentle Barn’s across the country so that every animal and child can have a place of healing and safety and where they can be seen for the perfect beings that they are. Since its inception, The Gentle Barn has been home to hundreds of animals and host to over 100,000 people. In these times of gangs, drugs, crime, violence and war, it is essential that we make efforts to ensure a more peaceful future for our children. We feel it is imperative that we teach our children kindness, compassion and empathy for all living beings. When a child meets another, looking different than themselves, with perhaps a different religion, race, sex, or language, if that child knows that we are all the same on the inside, then perhaps that child will accept the other and we will be closer to having peace on earth.”
Over 160 farm animals reside at The Gentle Barn. “These animals have all been rescued from severe abuse, neglect, abandonment or worse. They have been rehabilitated with traditional and non-traditional medicine, top quality nutrition, and countless hours in the arms of our staff and volunteers. They have regained their trust in humankind by realizing that they are now loved, and their abuse is over. Because of their ongoing physical and psychological needs, they can’t be adopted and are given sanctuary with us for the rest of their lives. Because the animals at The Gentle Barn have experienced abuse and severe neglect, their treatment and rehabilitation is extremely expensive and can take a long time. But it is worth it to see them smile again, to watch their eyes light up, to feel them cuddle in your lap, and to see them play with new life and new hope. Once rehabilitated, the animals become ambassadors, teaching children about the magic and grace of these precious beings. ”
