Organización colaboradora de AKI-Sauvons nos Animaux

Horses in Ghana on the beach getting good care.

Asociación de AKI con Sauvons nos Animaux

¡Sauvons nos Animaux es nuestra organización asociada más nueva, agregada a partir del 1 de enero de 2022! Después de recibir una subvención de la Organización de Bienestar Animal con sede en África de AKI en 2020 y una segunda en 2021, decidimos agregar a SnA como socio.

Es realmente difícil rescatar perros y gatos y administrar un refugio de animales en el este de la RDC: la región es muy pobre, está plagada de conflictos y los desastres naturales (terremotos, inundaciones) son comunes. Pero Paterne Bushunju, fundador y director de SnA (foto a la derecha en el refugio de SnA), está decidido a asegurarse de que "sus" gatos y perros reciban el nivel de atención que recibirían si fueran las mascotas de alguien. Y esperamos ayudarlo a lograrlo.

For the owners and caretakers, the main sources of income are racing, beach rides, and religious festivals. All these events are known for horse abuse. Mostly, caretakers live a life without dignity, too, in wooden shacks or horse rooms, surviving "hand to mouth." The horse owners only see their horses for special events and shy away from the responsibilities that go along with being an animal owner.

The Six Freedoms rescues severely neglected horses who need special care. Due to limited means, and because taking care of a horse is very expensive, and the horses under The Six Freedom's care require significant time and attention, currently, the number of horses they can actually rescue is limited.

 

Since The Six Freedoms doesn't yet have their own property, they rely on Ranch Eva Lydeking in Akim Asafo and Kingdomstable in Aplaku, Weija, Accra where their rescued horses are brought to recover. Ulla, Eva, and the grooms at Eva's ranch coordinate closely on all Six Freedoms' rescued horses.

 

To expand their influence, The Six Freedoms works with other stables in Ghana with about 80 horses in total; the Accra race course; the Accra police stables; and key people in Ghana's horse community, such as well-known jockeys, trainers, and horse owners.

 

The Six Freedoms' work is becoming widely known and the horse community is now acknowledging this new way of working with horses and asking for advice, even offering more horses to The Six Freedoms to take care of. Each horse that The Six Freedoms rescues and recovers increases their visibility in the horse community, and more and more people are requesting their help. 

 

The Six Freedoms currently takes care of their 13 rescued horses. And through their collaboration with local and international experts on horse nutrition, care, horse behavior and training, The Six Freedoms is able to help many more horses. They readily share hands-on knowledge about horse welfare, throughout the horse community.

Animal Kind International supports rescue and protection efforts for horses in Ghana in Africa including promoting training in good care of teeth.

Caring for teeth (left), hooves (right), and coat, a good diet and exercise are all part of caring for a horse. The Six Freedoms works with local and international horse professionals to promote this training.

Las imágenes a la derecha muestran las dos subvenciones de la Organización de Bienestar Animal con sede en África que recibió SnA:

 

En 2021, SnA recibió una subvención de AKI para contratar a un veterinario y un asistente veterinario para esterilizar y castrar a todas las mascotas del refugio y para brindar otros cuidados veterinarios necesarios.

 

Después del primer par de meses, las cirugías se detuvieron porque había una "hambruna" en el refugio.

 

Las donaciones bajaron, los precios subieron, SnA estaba teniendo problemas para recaudar el dinero que necesitaban para comprar comida para alimentar a los perros y gatos.  Los donantes de AKI y otros acudieron en su rescate y recaudaron dinero para comida para gatos y perros para que los animales del refugio pudieran recuperar su fuerza y las cirugías pudieran continuar.

 

En 2020, con la subvención de AKI, SnA construyó una instalación de cuarentena y un corral para perros para albergar a unos 25 perros en el refugio. 

The 6 Freedoms are: Freedom.....

From hunger and thirst

From discomfort

From pain, injury, and disease

To express normal behavior

From fear and stress

From being property
