When new life is brought on to the earth, it is usually a cause of
celebration and joy. But for the homeless animals on the streets of Lebanon,
this means a large population of newly born kittens who face sickness,
starvation, injuries, cruelty, and for many, death.
Animals Lebanon has been working on overdrive
averaging at least one kitten rescue per day – digging the helpless
creatures out of garbage bins, underground parking lots, off the sides of
highways, and from inside gutters. In one month, we have achieved over 30
In our care, the kittens received medical treatment
and were lovingly looked after by Animals Lebanon’s dedicated volunteers.
The kittens were then given a golden opportunity when Mix FM, Lebanon’s
leading radio station, offered to air a campaign about the rescues.
Having our campaign on Mix FM’s airwaves gave Animals
Lebanon the chance to spread awareness on the plight of these homeless
kittens to hundreds and thousands of listeners and reach out to animal
lovers throughout the country. In only two weeks, we were able to locally
re-home a record number of twenty two kittens and gain a wonderful group of
new volunteers! Thanks to Mix FM, our rescued animals now have the chance of
a new life in a loving home! Click here to see some of the adopted kittens.
Working simultaneously on our older or 'special' cats
and dogs, ten animals were safely re-homed this month in Holland thanks to
the devotion and hard work of our international Animals Lebanon supporters,
Agnes, Henny and Hano. These three people are absolutely devoted to the
welfare of our rescued animals and have played a crucial role in giving
these animals a second chance at life in a home. Click here to see pictures.
